FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP – January 15, 2018

ICE REPORT: MONDAY, 1/15/18
LAKES MITCHELL AND CADILLAC

With most of the snow gone during the warm up last week, the ice has hardened up like a diamond!

Lake Mitchell:
Big Cove area 7-9″
East side by Mitchell State Park 12″

Lake Cadillac:
Kenwood Park 8-10″
East end, City Boat launch 12 1/2″

The ice height in the pictures is about 3/4″-1″ above the waterline on the tape measure. The overcast sky is making for terrible contrast and it is hard to see in the pictures.

We've had a couple nice Pike come in this weekend. 38 3/4", 15 pounds on a little panfish rod with a Sweedish Pimple!

We still need to exercise caution while out on the ice. It was reported earlier that an ATV broke through the ice between Big and Small coves on Lake Mitchell. There are tracks all over the lakes from snowmobiles and a few ATV's, but only small amounts of the lake have been checked for ice thickness. Most of the lake is still unknown. Don't throw caution to the wind just because you see someone else's tracks in the snow.

I hope everybody has a Safe and Happy New Year!

Linda BarthelWe pulled an ATV out near Franke Cove. It went completely through but the water was only 2.5 feet deep. Was amazed at how punky the ice was in that area. The area is now marked. Could be combination of water current and snow pack contributing to the poor quality of ice.

For you spear guys don't forget to enter our 16th Annual Pike Spearing Contest. It doesn't cost anything to enter. Fish must be taken from Wexford, Osceola, Missaukee or Lake Counties. Contest runs from December 1, 2017 to March 15, 2018. You must be pre-registed before you enter a fish. Prizes will be awarded by length, not weight.

Dan Grzybowski brought it the first entry for the season, 27 5/8" weighting 4.23lbs.
