FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL

FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP

SUNDAY, MARCH 22, 2015

 

 

The calendar says its Spring, but there's still over a foot of ice on Lakes Cadillac and Mitchell.  Southern Anglers are shocked if they arrive without their power augers.  The shoreline is showing signs of opening in certain places.  It's anybody's quess how long the ice will last with the cold mornings and warm afternoons.

There's a few crappie anglers left on the ice.  Most have figured out the pattern and are doing well.  Worth while numbers are being caught.  The Coves on Mitchell and the Thirsty's area have been consistent.  The crappie have been suspending right under the ice.  Right under the ice.  Regardless of the depth those most successful only have 3 or 4 feet of line out.  They can be finacky.  For a while they only bite on minnows, then stop.  Changing to waxworms or spikes starts the bite over.  First light and the evenings find the most aggressive fish.  Most of the better areas are pot marked with old holes making hole hopping easy.

Manisttee River:  Steelhead have started.  Not catching big numbers yet, but more fresh fish are coming up river.  The best is yet to come, need the river to warm.  Once Tippy Dam Pond thaws and some Spring rain comes, the numbers will pick up.  Browns have been easy to catch but most are under that 15 inch mark.  Be careful when releasing them.

At the Pilgrim Village Fishing Shop we're busy changing over to Summer Fishing Tackle.

This is the only time you'll see peg board in our store.
