FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL
FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP
SUNDAY, MARCH 1, 2015
More friget temperatures. More fresh snow keeping everything clean and white.
Although fishing isn't as easy as earlier. Some report catches of crappie, pike and perch. Bluegills have been spotty and the walleyes are hibernating. If you're lucky enough to catch one, go out and buy a lottery ticket. It's your lucky day.
Those consistently catching panfish are using micro jigs tipped with spikes. Large jigs and baits seem to scare the panfish off. Become comfortable with 2 or 3 pound test line. Darker colored jigs seem to preferred. Spikes, waxies or minnow heads are all it takes to entice a stubborn fish to bite.
Either lake, Cadillac or Mitchell bring your tip-ups. The pike are one species that's always hungry. Only a couple of weeks left of the season and we're do for another 40 incher or two.
Smelt Anglers - This has not been a banner season for smelt fishermen. However it's picking up on Green and Crystal. Reports of better numbers and larger smelt come from both lakes. Often as large as 9", some talk about filleting them.
The new 2015 Licenses are available. Your 2014 Fishing and ORV Licenses are still valid through March 31, 2015.
