Alpena Area Fishing Report

December 16th, 2019


Alpena area is heating up but not in the sense of temperature but fishing has been on fire. 5 plus inches of clear beautiful ice on most of the inland lakes with people fishing the floodwaters for pike and Grand Lake for walleye and perch. The usual winter presentations have been working. For Pike tip ups with shiners, sucker minnows, or dead smelt have been the ticket. When targeting walleye or perch on Grand you are going to want to use jigs with a minnow or any kind of jigging spoon with a minnow tail or head on it. Tips up can be productive also but if anything it gives you another chance and more fish. Golden shiners or blues are a great way to bring walleye to the top of the ice.
