Steve try the Manitowoc marina, there's browns, rainbows and northerns in there.
Two Rivers/Manitowoc, Lake Michigan
Hi looking to get some information where to start targeting browns or steelhead through the ice. Not looking for smart answers just never targeted this specific fish through ice before. Not looking to keep any just for fun. Strictly catch and release. Any info on where to start would be great. Preferably harbors with safe ice. Thanks in advance.
I was wondering the other day about getting out on the big lake. I understand Pier Pressure Guiding in Manistee goes out into the lake all year for steelhead, but he has a 35' boat. If I wasn't committed on Saturday I might join you.
The launch at seagull would need some work, I opened it up last year with some chiseling but I am in no shape to do it at this point in time. A little bit of work and you could launch there for sure. The ice floes will likely take care of themselves later this week. If you are feeling adventurous there is two creeks and green street to launch from. Depending on how it looks Friday at seagull we might drop a boat in on Saturday.
edit for picture of the ramp from monday
You could prolly launch one, but there is Ice Chunks all throughout the river right now and if they let loose youd never get back to the dock. I'm with the CG here looking right now there's ice floes everywhere and our boats are away for the winter, so you'd be on your own should anything happen.
