Lake Superior, Munising Bay Spring fishing season will soon take center stage.  Ice fishing season is just about over, and now is the time to get your gear ready for Spring fishing fever. Also, smelt fishing our river outlets is only a few short weeks away.

Fishermen are doing well catching white fish. Coho salmon are making their arrival to food producing river outlets. Munising South Bay, the east channel and west channel are producing some nice lake trout in 30 to 60 feet depths.  Beware of deteriorating ice conditions.

Hidden secrets are Murrays Bay where you'll find fantastic northern pike and yellow perch. Trout Bay is offering up some great lake trout fishing.
 

Smelt Fishing

Smelt fishing in winter you ask? You bet! As soon as we acquire first safe ice on Munising Bay, head out over to Sand Point- poke a couple of holes and fish as you would for perch. You certainly may not get a bucket full as you would netting them in Spring in the Anna River in a good season, however a couple of dozen can make an excellent fish fry for this time of the season. You'll be the envy of every smelt connoisseur in the city. 

Best time of the season to catch Smelt through the ice is from the end of February to ice out, which typically happens by the middle/end of April. Lake ice usually develops by the first or second week in January... but has been known to start as late as February. Ice Out usually occurs by the middle of April.
