MICHIGAN FISHING has never been better and Michigan anglers have a smorgasbord of Michigan fishing opportunities available to them.  With four Great Lakes, Lake St. Clair, and approximately 11,000 inland lakes, Michigan anglers are close to water where ever they may live.  Michigan fishing in the Great Lakes are popular with anglers seeking out Salmon, Steelhead, & Trout.  The Great Lakes Trout & Salmon Guide list the rules and regulations for these species.  Many people want to fish but do no have the equipment or boat to do so.  Lake Michigan Fishing Charters are the ticket and they are popular with many people looking for a fun day of sport fishing. Fishing Lake Michigan or Lake Huron offers quality salmon, steelhead and trout while Lake Erie fill the bill for walleye..

The Detroit & St. Clair Rivers are home to the monster walleyes which inhabit the river systems.  A popular technique called handlining is used by locals to catch the tasty walleye.  Jigging is also popular with boat anglers.  Be careful not to stray in Canadian waters without purchasing a fishing license from Canada. They can be obtained by calling 1-519-354-7340.

The thousands of inland Michigan fishing lakes throughout the state are the ticket for the shore fisherman and small boat anglers.  Most inland lakes have been stocked with walleye and they offer excellent opportunities for everyone.  Of course, don't neglect the Largemouth Bass.  The Largemouths are common in most every lake and small grow to around 8 lbs.  In Metro Detroit, try Belleville Lake, Stoney Creek Impoundment, Kent Lake, & Cass Lake for quality fish.  If camping and fishing are what you are looking for; be sure to check out the Michigan Camping guide and the Michigan State Parks guide.

This year, the DNR's free Michigan fishing weekend celebration is June 9th & 10th.  It is an excellent way to introduce your friends or children into the sport of fishing.  Be sure to check out the Michigan Fishing Report for the latest updated fishing information.

The DNR Master Angler Awards program recognizes anglers who catch large fish.  The year 2000 marked the 27th 'birthday' of Michigan's highly successful Master Angler Program. Launched in 1973 to better recognize anglers who catch unusually large fish, the Master Angler program began with just 19 species of fish eligible to win distinctive Master Angler shoulder patches. Today, more than a quarter-century later, that program has expanded to include 52 various species for which anglers may compete for honors. The list of catches eligible for recognition ranges from such seldom-caught species as the American eel and northern hogsucker to the commonly sought yellow perch and walleye.   A Master Angler entry form can be found here.   A listing of the Michigan Fishing State Record Game Fish is a must see for trophy hunters.  Michigan fishing has never been better.
