Alpena Michigan area fishing report for Lake Huron and Thunder Bay

Alpena Area

March 19th 2017 


Most ice IS NOT safe now. Always use extreme caution when heading out on any lake.

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


Lake Huron- Thunder Bay is wide open and the river and launch is clear of all ice with a few icebergs floating around. We will have our first open water trip here in the next few days. 

Hubbard Lake-  There is never 100% safe ice and with the current warm spell I would not trust the ice anymore. Walleye season opener on the last Saturday in April is always spectacular. Limit catches are common at night in the shallow water trolling crankbaits near bottom. 

Grand Lake- There was safe ice until the past 60+ degree days. the ice has weakened to the point i do not trust it anymore.

Long Lake- The ice is in the same condition as Grand. I would not recommend heading out onto the ice.

Fletchers Floodwaters- Ice has been weakening during every sunny day and the temps have been too warm for it to remain solid. Several 4-wheelers and some shanties have fell through the ice and its best to stay off entirely.


Good Luck and Tight Lines.
