Fishing Report September 12 2016: Walleye fishing is slow
right now, but we are catching perch. Some days the fihsing is better than
others, but mornings are best. Afternoons after 3pm are very slow for perch.

I am offering ice fishing charters to groups. The cost is $150 / person
for a half day. We will meet at 5:45am and start loading the equipment. We will
use snowmachines to navigate across the ice using Navionics maps loaded on a
Lowrance XOG gps mounted on the my machine. You can bring a gps and mark the
waypoints we fish. I will supply the helmets for the snowmachines, unless you
choose to bring your own.
We will fish out of either a 2006 Otter ice fishing lodge or a 2010 Clam Fish trap. You can use my selection of lures, rods, and reels or bring your favorite rod/reel and lures with you. I use 20lb Spiderwire Stealth green (6 lb diameter) on my reels. I use backing on each reel to make sure the line doesn't slip on the reel. This line won't break when the fish rubs it against the hole in the ice. I have the latest in electronics for marking and visualizing the fish. Each shanty will have a heater, but this is winter, and when you step out you will be in Michigans weather so dress appropriately. We will fish until approzimately 11-12noon and then come in for lunch.
If you choose the evening trip then I will meet you at 1pm and return after dark.
To see pictures click the photogallery/blog link to the left. I am very
busy fishing and working, so I don't get the chance to update the site much, so
I am sending pics from my phone to the photogallery. Please feel free to comment
on them. Also, if you fished with me then feel free to post your pics online
too. Text me if you have problems.
