Got a question, suggestion or complaint you’d like to share with Southwest Michigan fish managers?
You’ll get that opportunity April 8 at the Wolf Lake State Fish Hatchery. The hatchery is at 34270 County Lane Road, Mattawan, Mich. 49071, located about an hour north of Edwardsburg.
Jed Pearson is eager to see what he finds in nets at Webster Lake when his DNR fisheries team starts collecting adult muskies for the hatchery in the coming weeks.
The biologist hopes he’ll see more young muskies as he and anglers did last year. If he continues to find juveniles mixed in with big ones that would be a good sign that DMR fish management changes continue to produce good results.
Bladed jig fishing has been the rage for early spring fishing and several companies have produced their versions the past couple years.
They all catch fish, but Mark Zona says Strike King’s new Thunder Cricket is as good as they get because Strike King’s stellar pro staff provided input for every detail, from the snap, paint job, hook and performance.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — During the early portions of practice for the GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods, Jacob Wheeler discovered a pattern that he knew would put bass in his livewell.
But since it seemed a little too obvious, he spent the latter portions of practice looking for something he thought no one else would find.
He ultimately went back to the obvious — and it has him in position to win the Super Bowl of Bass Fishing.
fter landing 14 pounds, 11 ounces during Friday’s opening round, Wheeler caught five bass Saturday that weighed 17-11 and sprang into first place with a two-day total of 32-6. His five-bass limit Saturday was one of the few weighed in this week that featured all smallmouth.
“I know this crew,” Wheeler said. “I knew they would figure out the same thing I had figured out. Even though there are miles and miles and miles of water, they were going to figure it out.
