Fishing Tips for Manistique Lake

on October 21st

At 10,130 acres Manistique Lake is one of the biggest lakes in Michigan but don't assume that the fishing is amazing though granted you find pike that average 20 inches, walleyes that average 15 inches, smallmouth bass that average 14-18 inches, and 6-9 inch panfish but there is nothing amazing swimming around in here. That might have something to do with the fact the lake is shallow (the max depth is only 20ft). If you are interested in fishing here I recommend focusing on the rocky shoals, the islands, about 5-15ft deep between Long Island and the peninsula long the western shore, the 15ft deep holes in the southeast corner of the lake, and the bay in the northeast corner of the lake. The usual baits and lures should work nicely. Tight Lines!
