Finally got photos from Tichigan last week.  One of my favorite events in Waterford is their Hot Air Balloon Fest.

 Bass fishing was hot too on Tichigan, but only for a brief time early AM before boat traffic.  Love those poppers.

The rain cooled the surface temp by about 10 degrees. 

Fishing was so so...

Caught LM Bass and Gills drifting the south side with Carolina Rigs in around 10 fow. 

The clouds and threat of rain made boat traffic light - was a nice change for a Saturday.

   Fished from shore for a bit this morning in the rain. I hate sun by the way. Just for the heck of it tried something different for bluegill bait. Pie ces of cut precooked bacon. My worms were dying at home. They liked it fine. Bobber fished within 10 foot of shore. Stays on good too. Try it cheaper than crawlers.

I know exactly what your saying....i was just poking a little humor.

But to your point, yes, its a waterway you really need to pay attention to your boating surroundings. I lived on the waterway for 19 years. Had my share of close calls. Its a large waterway with a variety of recreational residents.

I guess your missing the point people need to know the rule. The lakes and rivers are for all users be it a small river and lake and the marker have the same meaning on them .If eveyone uses them by the rules  there would not be as many problems that is all i meant

First Quarter

The short channel entrance to Tichigan is not a shipping channel : ) 

I believe Mr Bass was referring to an anchored boat and the 100ft SNW rule

MR bass thats is why i said everyone need to read the rule book that would make all those fish men  in the wrong red and green marker are directional Chanel markers not slow no wake  that is what is in that Chanel  if you where on the mississippi and block the water way cost guard would be give them a fine. I fish, skied,swim, and  used to scuba dive the lake people barely no the rules on no wake try a dive flag out once i have here i dident know what that was the best was this lake is not a dive lake READ THE RULE BOOK AND REPORT THOSE WHO BRAKE THE LAW

No wake...No Way.  Tichigan is like the old West--there are no boating rules, at least none enforced.  Years ago, I recall a Police Boat moored by a cottage on the lake.  A local officer lived there and gave tickets out to speeders.  But back then fishermen outnumbered the skiers and early mornings were somewhat sacred.

I recall a spring day that crappies were biting like crazy in the channel entering into Tichigan.  There were over 20 boats piled up there catching fish.  Any boat traveling into/out of the lake had to slow to a crawl with no wake in order to get through.  Aaah, the old days.  But that's progress I guess.

Define “ dark” and  sunset for those idiots. It means nothing to them . I have my bedroom window open and hear them occasionally around 1 or 2 am. CARPIO
