  3. Looking for any tips that someone wants to share for ice fishing walleye all over Michigan. Anything would be appreciated, like time of year, depth to look for and maybe favorite rig! Hopefully gunna try just about everywhere and anywhere Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  4. Well...

    It's been a "long" season. It ended way to soon, and started to early like always. Second to last day of season was the best hunt for us with 3 drake mallards, 1 hen, and a Drake green wing... that's right, a green wing teal in December. Praying that something will be done about the season. Also, what happened to all of the wood ducks? I never saw one after November started Good luck for late season everyone Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  5. Water is warm. Even slower than last time. Maybe saw 2 fish caught all day at the dam. Lots of small mouth activity. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  6. Slow, no fish caught. Some coho are in spawning but no numbers yet of anything Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    How are you catching them? If you don't want to share, I under stand. Just wanted to know if it was with hardware or if it was on bottom Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  8. I wanted to bring to everyone's attention the salmon population in the Great Lakes. I'm only 18 years old but yet I was able to do the research on the DNR stocking and figured out that the DNR have cut stocking by a substantial amount. For the Kalamazoo River at the dam they were planting just over 50,000 chinook salmon around 2012. From 2013 until now they cut back to nearly 10,000 Chinook. It seems to be the same story everywhere from Ludington south on the Lake Michigan shores of Michigan. License prices have gone up for almost everything and the DNR slightly increased stocking of the walleye, coho, and Lakers it appears. But it doesn't seem enough to make up for the money not spent on chinook salmon stocking. So where is all of our money going? Where is one of our largest fishing industries going to turn? I have heard that the DNR quit planting chinooks because of a bait problem. Last time I was out September 20, 2015 me and my dad marked football field size pods of baitfish. We didn't just mark one. We marked around 5 of them and there were no fish at all around them. We also marked smaller groups of bait as well. I hope that gives you something to think about and I hope you start asking questions like I have.
  9. PS 6/8 am

    That's right! If you guys go out tomorrow call out for suenami II, I'll be out again tomorrow
  10. 2-2 on steelhead. 150 fow and 170 fow. Both 5 color pink plug and a meat rig. Both came on a west troll, it was slow. Not a lot of people out. Sorry I meant 7/8/15 Suenami II
  11. PS 7/4 am

  12. Captains lisence

    Well thanks for the info and I'll keep that all in mind!
  13. Captains lisence

    I'm thinking about getting my captains license for the Great Lakes. I've been fishing Lake Michigan since I was 10 and I'm 18 now and I'm thinking about getting my captains license, and I don't know anything about getting it.
  14. Went 3-3 from 170-130fow I'm guessing.. Our fish finder quit working past 100fow so we were guessing and we couldn't mark fish either. So I think we did alright. One 8 lb steelhead on a pink plug 5 color. Another 9 lb steelhead on black meat rig 10 color. The last fish was a nice 17.5 lb king on a 300 ft copper with a light blue meat rig. It seamed like a good day overall, really slow all over and the radio was quiet for the most part. Suenami II
  15. Me and two of my friends went 4-10 fish today we hit to Kings on J blogs one Wonder Bread on a downrigger 55 and 1 tiger glow on a sincker released about 80 down 110-80 feet of water and two coho came on rigger and 5 color lead
