Went fishing for bass this morning started before sun up and untill 9:00. Started the day off by the mouth on the left side and had one on and had a little guy hit the live target frog two times just pushing it out of the water. Then went to the left bay and caught 3 pounder and that was it then went to the right bay and had a 2-2.5 pounder and one blow up but never grabbed it casted back and brought it to the way the fish was going to and he never hit again. For me this has been the best day for the past 3 weeks. The cold nights and warm days are messing with the fish. 3 weeks ago we would catch 10-15 bass in 3 hours. If you do go frogin stick to the edges and open holes and lilly pads with not weeds. Try by the rocks and nothing Wondering

Caught this 23.5 inch bowfin casting with a Mepps #5 lure in between shallow weed beds. The only bad part was that the hook was so hard to get out of the fishes mouth. Finally, I got it out. The little 8 inch walleye was caught by the northeast side of the lake with a small Rapala minnow.

Fished the northern part of the lake and up about a mile into the river. Tied into 5 Pike in 4 hours with my dad. Top two fish were 35" and 28". Threw spinners for Bass knowing we may see some Pike. Caught nothing but Pike.

Out from 520AM until 11AM... only a handful to show for it. Founds some bass in the shallow water 6fow or less... About an hour in, started to let the boat drift deeper to 7-11 fow and got some small eyes.. Buddy and his gf each landed a.. about 14-15 inch Drum.

Was quite slow, nice morning though. No wind for a while, quiet. fished deeper water to no avail though 15-20fow.

The fish are not tight to shore anymore, so I don't believe you'll have a much luck there.

The South side of the lake has lots of great structure, I catch my share of Pike there drifting leeches. Also, during the week, Tichigan is not crowded at all. There is a nice drop off just West of the island, if you continue going West you will see a series of some really nice humps that almost always hold fish.

There is also a nice 8 foot weed flat on the far North side, and again on the South side just North of where the river meets the lake.

The best drop off on the lake is located on the SW side of the lake. You can anchor in 13 feet of water and cast toward shore and hit 5 feet, or cast away from shore (to the East) and hit 30 feet. Some deeper weed lines are starting to develop here. This spot is becoming pretty reliable again due to the weed growth.

Cast around what you cast around for Pike on other lakes, and you should certainly be able to raise some pike.

I'm a Crappie, Gill, and Walleye guy and I stumble onto Pike not even targeting them - can't imagine you wouldn't catch some Pike if your targeting them in the spots noted above. Tichigan has plenty of nice sized Pike. Just ask ORC!

Im looking to fish some pike but cant seem to get any. i have been out about 5 times and cant land a thing. i cannot really go in the middle of the lake because i have almost been swamped by boaters getting too close. Where near shore is a hot spot? Thanks all

You can always count on heavy boat traffic on Tichigan on a warm, sunny weekend Chad. It rained on Saturday, so I'm sure everyone had the same thought as me on Sunday - get out and soak up some sun, catch some fish, and have a few cocktails.

There was also a Bass Tourney - between the two the lake was crowded.

Still a great day on Tichigan, I didn't expect anything less than lots of other folks enjoying a day on the water.

Tichigan was about as busy as I've seen it today. Trailers were parked on both sides of the street on Milwaukee Avenue from the Travel Agency to the Condos.

Tried fishing a few river spots, but there was just too much traffic today, so I headed for lake and fished the NE Side for two or three hours. Anchored in about 15 feet of water and caught fish all day long. Not much in the way of size though, 14 inch Walleyes and 7.5 inch Gills. Kind of funny, it is easier to catch a 14 inch Walleye than a 8 inch Gill this year.

Didn't even catch a Drum today. Plenty of short eyes and gills though... Great way to kill an afternoon though. My wife and I got to hang out, have a few cocktails (Summer Shandy and Rolling Rock), and enjoy the day.

Too bad tomorrow is Monday, I'd rather spend my days on old Tich than going to work. Speaking of retired folk, wonder when my buddy Gill 1774 is gonna fish old Tich again. Miss not seeing you out on the water buddy!
