  1. This is not new, and these “negotiations” are not going to go well for recreational or charter fishermen. The Coalition to Protect Michigan Resources (CPMR) is a gathering of fishing clubs and conservation organizations that pool our money together to pay lawyers to speak for 1 million fishing license purchasers…vs 40 tribal licenses. And the tribes will win with this woke BS we are Living through. Go to their website and paypal the CPMR what you want. But, when you don’t, don’t badmouth the guys that fight this decree every 20 years (yes, the same legal team from 1980, 2000, and now 2020). They have been frustrated, pissed off, and now worried they will become the scapegoat of “the reason there are nets at every tributary in the Great Lakes”, or “why are there nets covering Saginaw Bay?” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Great report Randy. Hope to see you out there again this year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. It has been a busy stocking season and today, The NWMI Fishing Club conducted Avian Predator Control on Duck and Green Lake. 8500 nice 7-9" lakers in both lakes. Thanks to Matt, Kile, Dave, Sheila and John T! Your time is valuable to all of us and we appreciate your donation of it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Today, The NWMI Fishing Club put our salmon net-pens into the Boardman. We will be getting 75k Kings on Thursday afternoon (best guess on the timing right now). When I get an ETA on the truck, I’ll post it here. If you are interested, grab a kid and come out and watch. There are 3 footbridges close to the net-pens location at Cass and Grand Parkway (Traverse Connect Building), and pretty good parking availability as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Outstanding. We won’t see these fish for another 4 months and 4 more pounds up here in Frankfort. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. This Saturday, 22 January 2022, The National Veteran’s Organization “The Fallen Outdoors” will host a large ice fishing get together on Silver Lake from 8am to 3pm for Michigan vets and their families. The meet up spot is the Silver Lake Public Access parking lot. Several members of the NWMI Fishing Club will attend and support. If you have any questions, send Matt an email to our club email address at [email protected] or go to The Fallen Outdoors Facebook page and ask a question or send a Personal message. See you out there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hello all, if you have fished for salmon in East or West Grand Traverse Bay and want to be able to claim you are a giver, not a taker, now is your time. The NWMI Fishing Club has used much of their membership fees, weekly Fishing contest revenue, and our donated money to repair and emplace the salmon pen nets and feeders for the Boardman River. We are looking to recover that money we have spent and you can help. This request applies to weekend anglers such as ourselves and Charter Boat Captains and fishermen statewide. We have DNR Coded Wire Tag data that proves a 3%-4% return of spawning salmon if they are acclimated with the river pen nets. It's only a 1% return rate just dumping them into the river. If you put that "return percentage" on the upcoming stocking of 75,000 salmon in May 2022 , we can expect 3,000 fish return with the use of pen nets versus 750 without in August/September 2025/26. Please go to the NWMI Fishing Club website homepage to the "PayPal Donate Button" and donate to our general fund and help us recoup some our expenses, and Thank you.

  10. Rockin Randy! That was me, the tall guy in the black shirt in the cleaning station with you. Good to put a face to a name. I’ll be out there tomorrow. I’ll report. Thanks for all the great reports this year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Good report Randy-even bad reports are something I can learn from. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I like both Randy. Glow up everything. I haven’t noticed a preference. If I get two hits on one presentation, I’ll change a few lines to that similar presentation. Moonshine Trolling Flies with the blade glow up great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Rockin Randy! Good details from your report. I met you at the cleaning station. Tall guy with the load of lake trout. Look forward to more meet ups out there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This Wednesday, 30 June, from 6-9pm, The NWMI Fishing Club will be hosting our weekly contest on Glen Lake this week.

  15. Last night on Lake Leelanau (12MAY2021), our weekly fishing league had its first event of the year. The weather was beautiful and the winds were low at less then 5mph. 16 anglers came out to participate for their luck at the largest walleye by weight and the largest pike. 3 anglers were able to catch walleyes with no pike brought in. Matt Tallman was able to take first place with a 1.43lb walleye with Les Dennis taking home second with a 1.10lb walleye. Due to no pike being weighed we were able to pay out two places. Zach Crawford was also able to bring a nice .99lb walleye. Several undersized walleyes were caught and many smallmouth bass and rocks bass too. Thanks for participating! Reminder, come join us next week, Wednesday May 19th at Long Lake, 19MAY2021, Crescent Shores launch, 6 lines in to 10 pm, lines out. Weigh your 1 biggest walleye, or 1 biggest "other species" could earn you some bragging rights and cash. $10 entry fee per angler, and at least 1 person on the boat needs to be a NWMI Fishing Club member. Registration starts at 515pm in the Crescent Shores Parking Lot. Membership packets will be available too if you need a member in your boat. Weigh in will start when all boats are accounted for (est 1030ish). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
