FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL
FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2014
We're back on the ice!
The cold nights have made all the difference. Anglers have returned to the coves on Mitchell, the Spear Colony at Thirsty's and Kenwood Park on Cadillac.
Good catches of crappie, gills, some perch and large pike are common. Even the walleye have been hungry.
The Big Question - How much ice? Four to 8 inches with an inch of snow cover depending on where you are.
Spud your way. Take nothing for granted. There's a lot of places we haven't been.
Several Master Angler Bowfins have been speared, John Brooks (Mr. Pike) currently leads our Spearing
but Thomas Brooks leads the pack with a 31", Contest with a 37 7/8", 9.5 lb Northern.
Tip-Up fishing on Lake Mitchell, Bernadine Gagnon Travelig from Indiana, Todd Bates holds a 25 3/4",
out fished her husband catching a 34 3/4", 9.0 pike. 5.5 lb Lake Mitchell walleye he caught on first ice.
