FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL
FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP
SUNDAY  SEPTEMBER  9,  2018

It's starting to get a little cooler outside, the kids are back in school and the hustle and bustle of the Summer tourism is slowing down to a quieter pace.  Some of the best fishing on our lakes is in front of us and this time of year you might be the only boat on the lake.  While many anglers are pre-occupied with putting up deer stands and trail cameras or cleaning up recent storm damange the fishing for game fish like Bass, Pike and Walleye are all going to get better as they feed to put on weight before winter.  However the dominant fish for right now doesn't swim in our lakes.  Salmon moving up the Manistee and Betsie Rivers is where the action is at right now.  Two weeks ago when the storms hit that did so much damage also brought lots of rain fall which triggered the Salmon that were staged outside the harbors to move up river.  They have been in thick ever since.  The average King Salmon seems especially large this year with 20 pound fish being the everyday average.  Master Angler sized fish are being caught everyday this year, maybe this is the year we see a new state record.  It will only last for a few more weeks so if you're interested in catching one of these monsters make your plans soon.

The Pilgrim Village Fishing Shop 2018 Free Summer Fishing Contest ends at 11 P.M. on Tuesday, September 11.  There's still time to bring in your winning catch.  Just in the last week we've had a new Walleye and Bullhead entered for top spots.
