12-28-20 Manistique Lakes in Curtis. Ice fishing season is rolling in full swing on big and south lake Manistique. We're hearing reports of very good mixed bag fishing on both lakes. Walleyes are coming in the mornings and evenings on jigging spoons tipped with minnows or a minnow head. Nice Crappies and bluegills are also coming on South Lake when you're fishing with smaller baits like teardrops with waxy's and or spikes. And the big lake we've heard some reports of locals doing well on the perch. Basically put, if you move around, stay in the shallows or edges and fish around weeds, and you have any idea at all what you're doing you should be able to catch a decent selection of fish. As always the northerns are cruising the edges and guys are catching those on tip ups. If you're looking for really good local bait, you can find live bait at the fish and hunt shop, as well as on top of
the hill at mick's bait shop.
