  1. Icefishing LP inland lakes and rivers
    Hey all, longtime lurker here, first time poster. Long story short, I moved up to the Traverse City area 2 winters ago, and have since taken up ice fishing. I love it, have had moderate success with perch/panfish with no electronics, but that's it. I recently found out this may be my last winter...

    OK, been watching this forum for a while, finally joined. Seems to have some great information and members. This is my first post. I've fished the East Bay a couple times, but I am finally getting a 3 day weekend to drive up to Traverse area and fish some of the smaller lakes for smallies...

    Hey gang! I've been a super amateur hunter since I was young but over the last few years, I've really developed a love for the being in the woods, staying off the couch, and playing outside! I'm looking at getting into bow hunting (I shot a Hoyt PowerMax recently and I can't stop thinking...
