Lake Preview for Mullett Lake in northern Michigan.
|Cheboygan Michigan area fishing report|
Fishing out on L. Huron remains very solid for a mixed bag of L.Trout, Atlantic's and a few smaller kings as well. The Lakers have been 5-10' up off bottom and the kings have been in the mid depths in about 90-120' peanuts and spin n glos have been deadly on the Trout and flies or spoons for the Kings.
Cheboygan River has been giving up a mixed bag of rock bass and walleye.
Mullett lake has been very good for smallmouth bass that are now cruising the 1st breakline. Try throwing swim baits and spinnerbaits early and tubes and weighted Ocho worms as the day progresses.
The Big Lake fishing has really started to go out of the port of Cheboygan. Limit catches of nice 3-6 pound lakers are coming in and the fishing is very steady. Peanuts and spin-N-glo's have been the best when run off Dipsy's or riggers near bottom. The best area seems to be from 40-80'
Cheboygan river is also going great right now with anglers using an array of soft plastics to land early season bass. Mullet lake is also kicking out some dandy early bass.
I have heard of some early bass anglers doing very well in the shallows for smallmouth. In general not much else is biting really good so a week of warmth should fix a bunch of things.
Well there's starting to be some action at the lock/dam on the river. Decent catches of steelhead are being reported on spawn. All the area docks are now in and I suspect that avid perch and panfisherman will be out soon.
Open water every where but not really anything to report.
Another week of nice weather and the open water season will be on!
Any Lakes that still have ice are going to be very iffy, I strongly suggest that you not go out on this ice. I suggest waiting for open water fishing
