FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL

FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP

SUNDAY, AUGUST 24, 2014

 

 

Last weeks report.  "Bigger Pike and greater numbers are here.  Those big healthy Fall pike are starting to show up as Summer disappears."  Trust us!  We have a new entry in the Northern Pike Category in this Summers Fishing Contest.  Angela Parks caught a 39 1/2", 12.78 pike while casting spinner baits on Lake Cadillac.  Impressive fish.  This monster has been living in the weed beds alog the North West shore and fatally tried to eat a chartruese spinnerbait.  Many locals claim there are larger ones out there so don't give up.

 

Angela Parks didn't need help catching her 39 1/2" pike,

but did need a extra hand holding it for the picture.

Large Mouth Bass are accompanying the pike.  Anglers out early in the morning come back with healthy fish.  The early bites produce the greatest numbers and Lake Cadillac seems to be outshining Lake Mitchell--this week.

Rich Ohlrich caught a bass the Tournament fishermen have been trying to catch.  He's the New Leader in the LargeMouth Category of our Summer Fishing Contest.  While fishing on Lake Cadillac, he landed a 21 1/2", 4.82 LargeMouth.  Another monster we dream of.

Rich Ohlrich shows us the Biggest LargeMouth so far,

21 1/2", 4.82 pounds.

Panfish are still being caught on the North East side of Cadillac, from the High School to the City Dock.  Expect an assortment of crappie, bluegill, sunfish and perch.  Waxworms and Leafworms have been working.  Crappie can't resist small minnows.

Only a report of some undersized walleye.  It's a start.  No stories from other lakes.  August is not walleye friendly.

 

      Sam Harbach shows us the 17 1/2", 3.17 lb.       Jason Harboch holds the first keeper pike he caught,

       Large Mouth he caught vacationing in Cadillac.    26 1/4", 3.52 lbs.  Off to a good start.

 

Pilgrim Village Free Fishing Contest as of Sunday August 24th.  The Pilgrim Village Summer Fishing Contest doesn't end until September 8th.  Bigger and better fish keep coming in.
