Munising Michigan area fishing report



Big Reef is starting to really heat up. The lake trout have been biting, both drifting and trolling are producing nice fish. Coho and splake are also starting to bite...I guess it's definately time to head up to Munising for some of the most scenic fishing anywhere in Michigan.


In spite of the cold temps this spring the coho fishing in the Munising area has remained good. Solid catches of smaller coho have been boated over the past week. The bite is happening in 40-50' and spoons has been very productive. Spoon colors have ranged from oranges to the hot color for me which is pink alewife. The winds have played havoc all across the state so stay tight to shore when possible.



Spring is here and so are the salmon. Good catches of a mixed bag of eater sized fish are being taken by both the trollers as well as the pier fisherman. Coho, splake and browns are in the shallows and are hitting small body baits like #9 & 11 Rapala's. Spoons are also producing. Pier fisherman are getting fish on spawn as well as casting spoons.



As soon as ice out occurs we will begin doing open water reports in and around the Munising area. See you in a few weeks!
