  1. Warm Water Species Fishing
    Hello, I live on a deep clear lake and I want to start trolling for walleye, pike, and trout. I have a pontoon. Any suggestions on rods? Do I need special line or reels? I'm going to use deep diving Crankbaits. Should I use an outrigger? Looking for specific brands/selections. Thank you.
  2. Warm Water Species Fishing
    I’m wondering if anyone has ideas of where Northern Pike are being caught in the Cedarville Hessel area?
  3. Fishing Stuff
    What you see is exactly what you get for twenty bucks cash. That's if you come to pick them up near my home. If you want them mailed to you, it will cost you an extra $5.95 to have the box sent to your address via USPS First Class Mail. And you will have to pay me through PayPal first. Send...
  4. South East Michigan Streams and Rivers
    Good morning gentlemen - I'm going for a float on the Huron River tomorrow at Island Lake. Would I be wasting my time if I tried fishing for some smallmouth or pike while on the river? Are they biting at all right now? If yes, any tips on lures / baits / presentation? I have a little bit of...
  5. Tackle Talk
    Anyone have experience with this stuff? Is it any good? Got some 80lb for musky fishing but just purchased a spool of 30lb for a heavy bass/pike rod and was testing the strength with a fish scale I got, it keeps breaking between 22-28lbs. Making me second guess if I should use it or not. Would...
  6. Warm Water Species Fishing
    How's the pike fishing below Mio Dam? I normally fish for pike below another dam on a different river system in the fall but the water level is too low, so I am looking for new spots. I recently tried fishing below Mio dam and Alcona dam, but didn't get a single bite. At my normal spot I fish...
  7. Warm Water Species Fishing
    Heading up to the Soo next couple weekends going for pinks which I have figured out and Smallmouth which I do not. Looking to be steered in the right direction for smallmouth or what type of water, structure, depth, etc I should be fishing? Also not opposed to a guide if anyone has a...
  8. Warm Water Species Fishing
    I'll be on Drummond Island for a while late Sept/early Oct. Pike are the main target. I will have an 18 foot boat that can handle some waves as well as float tubes if we hit any bays. Looking for cabbage and drop offs I guess. Can anyone share some of your best secrets about where and how...
  9. Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River
    Good pike action trolling Lake St. Clair yesterday, which was actually Sunday. Days have been all mixed up lately. Launched at Harley Ensign. Got about 8 or 9 (lost count), mostly around 30 inches, a fat 32 incher the biggest. Running high was the ticket, more so than speed, though most...
  10. Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River
    With Crocker being still not open I'm wondering where would be best to go on the W side of the lake (not too far a drive from the western 'burbs) for some C+R pike fishing, maybe with some bass and 'eyes in the mix near other DNR launch sites that are currently open. I was told there were some...
  11. Detroit River and Lake Erie
    Got out just before dusk on Friday night at Wyandotte. Started trolling and the action came fast, with lots of walleye action straight away. They really liked a diving shad bait, but I also got strikes on a deep tail dancer and larger shallow-running shad bait. Nothing big, fish running from...
  12. Detroit River and Lake Erie
    I've had the best walleye action ever this year, but only 2 pike so far, one of which just over a week ago may have still had eggs. Which was not so surprising, given the water temperature in the low 40s then. Usually I get more toothy critters trolling. Wonder what's up with that? But I...
  13. Warm Water Species Fishing
    Wrong forum, I apologize. The site navigation threw me. But I'm unable to figure out how to delete it, and re-posted it in the Lake St. Clair forum. Looks like we have some reasonably nice days with moderate (about 10mph) east winds coming, which would make the W side of the lake brutal...
  14. Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River
    Simply wondering. Whether by accident or intent, especially near W side DNR launch sites that are open, namely Brandenburg and points south, as I'm coming from the western 'burbs. Just asking for general areas, though I'm a C+R pike angler who mashes down the barbs in the hooks, so no worries...
  15. Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River
    Every year at this time is struggle to find the pike. Weeds aren’t up yet, and the back bays are a ghost town. Went into Big Muscamoot Bay, and found about 8-10 other boats. I worked the emerging weeds for two hours w/ only one hook up, which I ended up losing. I tossed Mepps and pulled them...
  16. Warm Water Fishing Inland LP Lakes
    does any one know anything about little black lake in muskegon county? never heard anything about it. wondering if any one has ever fished it, any bass, gills or pike? looks somewhat shallow and weedy and has black creek running to it seems like it could be decent for pike. i have a buddy...

    friday i have the rare occasion where the wife and kids will be out of town which mean i actually have time to go out and do some fishing. i'd really like to try some place different than the muskegon channel. so my question is do you guys have any kind of suggestions of places to try, i dont...
  18. Cold Water Species Fishing
    Looking for a solid baitcaster to pair with my Musky rod. Looking for something that I can pair with some 50 or 80lb PowerPro braid, and will handle casting up to 6oz lures. Not exactly trying to spend $500 on the Shimano Tranx 500. Anybody have something they like using?
  19. Warm Water Fishing Inland LP Lakes
    My brother caught this a couple years ago, and our friend caught another about a month ago at the same lake in southwest MI. We're not entirely sure what it is, but we're thinking some kind of pickerel. It seems a little big to be a grass pickerel, but I don't know. If you've got any info, it...
  20. Warm Water Fishing Inland LP Lakes
    This might be a stretch but I’m Looking for any info on any of the public lakes in lake county that have some pike in them for some catch and release action. Thx
