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.

Fly tiers from various Fly Fishers International and Trout Unlimited Clubs from around the Great Lakes region will come together next April for the 13th annual Tie-a-thon to tie and donate flies to Camp Kita and the Mayfly Project, both of which are groups that cater to youths.
The event is being held at the Elkhart, Ind. Conservation Club, which has donated their use of their facility again. More than 113,000 flies from previous Tie-A-Thons have been donated since the first Tie-a-thon was held.
Attendance isn’t required to help out. As the Tie-a-thon has done in previous years, flies will be accepted from individuals who are willing to donate their time and materials and finished flies for this year’s two worthy causes.
