Alpena Michigan area fishing report for Lake Huron and Thunder Bay

Alpena Area

January 7th 2018 


Lake Trout season is now open until October1st.

Alpena has the most consistent action in the state, get in on some World-Class fishing action!!! 


Lake Huron- All of Lake Huron has been mostly unfishable all of september and october due to high winds. The water is stirred up and very few people have been out fishing. The ones who have gone have not done well.  The fish are scattered and hard to find unless you run out past the dirty water.

Hubbard Lake-   Ice has just started forming and isn't safe yet. The end of January should be the best chance to chase these tasty fish. Tipups are the go to method for these tricky fish on this pond. Suspend a shiner just off bottom near the dropoffs for the most success. 

Long and Grand Lakes-  Long has some safe ice in spots, but areas of unsafe ice still remain. Grand is the best ice in the area and the fish are biting well. Both Walleye and Perch are being caught in good numbers. Try fishing in 10-15 feet of water using minnows and/or wigglers just off bottom for great action. 


Good Luck and Tight Lines.
