FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL

FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP

SUNDAY, JULY 27, 2014

 

 

Everyones favorite, walleye have not been cooperating.  Serious anglers have had to target them this time of year. It seems like one here or there but everyone agrees that they're in deep water.  Live bait seems to be the only thing they're interested in.  Leeches or crawlers are what they're hungry for.  Try some red, purple or white combinations of harnesses to feed their appetites.  Early mornings and evenings might be the only times you'll see the elusive walleye.

Pike fishermen have been fighting the weather, but have also been fighting pike.  Some decent Northerns have been coming from Cadillac and Mitchell.  Our contest Leader remains at 33 1/2" caught in June; but there are bigger pike lurking in the weed beds.  Retrieve spinner baits slowly over the weed beds.  Watch them chase them.

Lakes Cadillac and Mitchell have exceptional numbers of bass, especially large mouths.  Plastic worms have been the favorite with no particular color working better then others.  Try a pack of Yamamoto senkos and toss them under docks and at the edges of weed beds.  Tournament Anglers have been culling their catches.  It has been fun.

No extreme Summer heat yet.  Panfishermen are also doing well.  Near limits of gills and crappie are common. Don't just sit and wait, keep moving.  Once found they're usually in schools.  Drift till you  get bites, then anchor.
