FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP – February 5, 2017

The 2017 North American Snow Festival is over. We had plenty of brite white snow for the snowmobilers and lots of ice for the fishermen. There were nearly 400 participants in the 2nd Annual NASF Ice Fishing Contest. Top prizes were awarded for the largest Bluegill, Crappie, Perch, Pike and Walleye. The winning fish were:

Bluegill- 8 5/8″

Crappie- 12 1/2″

Perch- 12 1/4″

Pike- 31″

Walleye- 20 3/4″

While fishing for Walleye on Lake Cadillac, Rodney Sanders caught the winning Perch for the NASF Ice Fishing Contest by accident on a tip-up.

Smelt Fishermen – It’s Happening! The lakes you’ve been waiting for have ice.

Green Lake – Reports of catchs of 60 to 80 Smelt coming from the Karlin Boat Launch. More ice on the music camp side and reports of Perch mixed in with the Smelt.

Higgins Lake – We’re told 4″ to 6″ of solid ice with permanent shanties poping up daily. Want Variety? The opportunity to catch Smelt, White Fish, Lake Trout, Perch and monster Pike is here.

Crystal Lake – Still waiting… This lake is the last to freeze and the first to open.
