With Halloween just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to load your boat with monsters – monster muskies.
In lakes with big populations of perch or shad, the best trick for treating yourself to a record esox this fall is trolling Rapala Super Shad Raps.
The tactic is so effective on Green Bay that it often yields multiple 45-plus-inch fish per day.
After a 15-year hiatus, largemouth bass virus has re-emerged in a new northern Lower Peninsula water.
The virus has been confirmed as a factor in a fish kill in Cedar Lake in Iosco County, Mich., with additional lakes in the area being examined.
The Casting Couples Classic at Duck Lake at Interlochen, Mich. not only produced some nice catches of smallmouth and largemouth, but also a marriage proposal!
Brian and Renee Hensley won $1,000 for the event with 14.65 pounds. They also won second big bass pot worth $25 and $25 gift certificate from Clear H2o. They fished jigs in 6 to 10 feet of water and concentrated on inside turns.

The DNR closed off Eagle Lake parking due to complaints from Ontwa Township officials but it had nothing to do with anglers.
The entrance to the grassy DNR property was blocked by large boulders a week ago, placed there by the Michigan DNR after townships officials threatened citing them for an ordinance violation.
“This had nothing to do with fishermen,” said Leroy Krempec, township planning commission administrator. “It was the general public that was causing problems.”
The grassy lot, which the DNR owns and intends to develop as a parking area for boaters, has been open for boat and trailer parking since the DNR purchased the land nearly four years ago.
However, litigation filed by the Eagle Lake Improvement Association to prevent construction of a new boat ramp across from the parking area has put the project on hold.
The lot has remained undeveloped and has been discovered by Eagle Lake beachgoers, many of who have caused problems along Eagle Lake Road during nighttime and weekends.
Krempec said as many as 60 cars have been counted in the lot and litter has become a major problem.
