  1. Nets around Whitehall

    Nets around Whitehall The reason why I am interested in getting something started here is to obtain some information as to why the nets around the Whitehall area on Lake Michigan are not listed anywhere online, or between Muskegon as well. Apparently the nets are not marked by any GPS coordinates. Part of the reason why I am interested in obtaining this data, is for ⛵ safety, and to help prevent losing fishing tackle. I am new to the WhiteHall area, my brother and I have a passion for fishing in the big lake too! There have been too many stories and accidents that have occurred because of them as well. It may be very beneficial to have the nets listed on the website.
  2. Port Sheldon Parking lot fee

    Port Sheldon Parking lot fee Does anyone know who may fish at the Pigeon Lake- Port Sheldon, and if a person is to meet some other fishing buddies for a trip out on the Big Lake, at the launch. I just want to follow the rules. Doest the DNR charge a fee for just parking your car in the lot. Where do I find out the information.
  3. Trap Nets from Grand Haven North to Whitehall

    OK guys, I do appreciate the input, and yeah well it is the end of the season, but I know for sure that it'll be the same deal next year. I'd like to propose to get charter captains, etc., involved so that if we can get a thread going on keeping the GPS way points up to date that would be great. The fish mart used to get them up on line. It's just a matter of saving us all tackle and potential future trouble even as a boater.
  4. Trap Nets from Grand Haven North to Whitehall

    yeah reel good plan. It use to be that the Fish net marker were kept thru some guy in Muskegon, but that is old info!
  5. Always a good topic of discussion in regards to how to get the GPS numbers for the nets from some one who may have already done so. I appreciate an update. I know that this information is not very easily shared.

  8. trolling bag question

    By the way did you Buggy bags or...,
  9. Looking to mark the tribal nets South of Whitehall to Grand Haven I really would appreciate that some one there out fishing the big lake could share any updates as to the quantity of "trap nets" and the respective GPS coordinates that would be listed for them from Whitehall - South down to Grand Haven. I am sure that we all should be aware of them as they can be a hazard. Upon doing some investigating & web surfing there apparently are no current posting for all the nets that are out there. Would appreciate any feed back regarding the post
  10. Nets South to Grand Haven To add to the discussion of nets around Ludington, are there any updates as to the quantity of "trap nets" and the respective GPS coordinates that would be listed for them from Whitehall - South down to Grand Haven that we should be aware of. Upon doing some investigating & web surfing there are apparently no current posting for all these nets that are out there, especially from what I have been told North of Muskegaon as well.

  12. South Haven 16,17,18

    Sounds like a reel good spoon bite. Did you not try to catch any fish on Spinnies or, a Flasher and fly combo?
  13. This is also available thru Dan Okeefe Salmon Ambassadors Chinook Angler Data Project This project asks anglers to provide information that will improve understanding of how natural reproduction and stocking affect Chinook salmon fisheries. In addition to providing data, participants will help answer specific questions of local interest in years to come. Mass marking efforts led by USFWS enabled the marking of all hatchery-reared Chinook salmon stocked into Lake Michigan and Lake Huron beginning in 2011. This means that stocked age 3 fish caught in 2013 will not necessarily be marked with an adipose fin clip (AD clip) and coded wire tag (CWT). During the 2013 pilot season we hope to use your feedback on data collection procedures to develop a much larger volunteer base for the 2014 season, when the vast majority of stocked Chinook salmon will be marked. FYI - see web page: http://www.miseagrant.umich.edu/explore/fisheries/salmon-ambassadors/
  14. OK thanks for that report sounds like the Spring Kings were there and maybe a bit to the North. Perhaps even a bit more of a spoon bite that anything else. We fished it last up Port Sheldon in 90 -100 fow and meat was key with kings ranging around the 18 lb. mark for a heavy box too.
  15. Hey Dr Hook, I wish that my plans did not change ,but had to miss out. I did see a lot of boats head out in the am thanks to morning weather on news ch 3. However, do you think that the other boats did about the same, and some extra info on the winning boxes - which were how big?
