  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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
  5. Good report Randy-even bad reports are something I can learn from. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 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
  7. 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

  9. 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

  11. Summary of Cisco in The Crisco: 1st place combined bag (1-man Cisco limit plus 1-man lake trout limit) Total weight= 24lbs 2nd place combined bag = 16lbs 3rd place combined bag = 8lbs 1st Heaviest Cisco only (Champion) bag = 16lbs Largest Laker Side bet option winner was 3.8 lbs. There was a heavier laker caught, but that fish was not part of the side bet option, so did not receive a payout. Overall, Cisco size and numbers were noticeably down from the last few contests we have hosted on East Bay. Water is still cold 41-43 degrees and no real big pods were located. While cleaning them, they were full of small alewife (1.5”-2”). Good to see that bait, troubling to see Ciscos loaded with them. Great fish fry was served up and good payouts were handed out as well. After the wind calmed and the sun came out, it made for a nice morning. Cold start however. Next event is Lake Leelaunau on Wednesday evening (12May). Biggest walleye and biggest pike will pay. Should be the “real first day of spring” and a nice evening out there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. I am out with the magnum slide diver right now. 1.4 at the ball. 167 Fow, slide diver set on “5”. No problems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I was out Sunday (today is Friday) in West Grand Traverse Bay. Lakers were frantic as usual. Kept 3, released 8. Lost 3 on the way to the boat. They are still deep (100’-150’). Spoons and flasher fly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Heading out tomorrow. The “Light and Variable” is calling me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Well, nothing significant to report. A few guys were on the north and south piers. Couldn’t tell if they were doing any good. Didn’t see any movement or nets swinging. We launch at 1000 headed with the wind south with a 6 line spread. 3 flatlines, a 2, 3, and 5 color. 3 bodybaits and 3 DW super slim spoons. We zig zagged from 30’ to 50’ on the way to Arcadia. Caught on 15” coho and released. We headed back north into the wind and had two good rips with no one home and a third questionable rip and run. Best marks came on the 60’ and 63’ contours, but nothing really biting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Thats funny. Hard on the teeth. Ha! I am heading out right now. Trolling the beach from Frankfort to Arcadia. I had to pick the coldest morning (23 degrees here in Traverse City). Will report. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. Ugg man. I have had more days like that than good ones this year. I am doing a fluid filter change on my motor and replacing downrigger cables. Awaiting parts. So your report alleviates my regret for not getting out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Its been very tough with this weeks wind. From hard fishing since Wednesday (didn’t fish Thursday), we ended with 1 Coho and 3 Kings (multiple lakers and cisco, but I don’t count them). I am down for a 500 hour maintenance on my motor (3 seasons) and two Downrigger cables and clutches. A foam cannon dueche of the boat as well. So it will be this coming weekend before I get back out.

  23. This. FishUSA had a sale last year-buy 2 at 20$ each, get one more free. Great deal. They have been great rods for cheap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Ended the night in West Bay with two Kings (13.5 and 18) and three lakers. Lost 2 more kings and 2 more lakers. So 5 in the boat on 8 hits. We did not enter the Boardman hole because we had out a 9-line spread with a 300 cooper and a 10 and 7 color. It was too congested in there. We stayed out in the bay proper in 100-130’. Good action. Salmon are snapping. You have another good 3 weeks or more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
