The weather has been really up and down so far this ice fishing season. Mild temperatures, rain and wind have reduced the amount of ice on the lakes. Most of Lake Cadillac is unaccessible with damaged and recideing ice along the shorelines. Some fisherman are getting on at the East end of Lake Cadillac where they’ve been catching Perch, Pike and Walleye. Lake Mitchell is in much better shape however there are some places to watch out for. Big Cove is alway a popular area to catch Bluegills, Sunfish and Crappie however the ice out in front of Camp Torenta where many access is in bad shape. There is 3-4″ of ice but with an additional 3″ of slush on top. We’ve heard of good catches of a mixed bag of Sunfish and Crappie out from Small Cove. The ice is about 6-7″ there with snowmobile tracks visible as well. Behind us off of Mitchell State Park we have the best ice on the lake with 6-8″. Most of the anglers in that area have been catching Perch during the day and some Walleyes during the evening.
