Love the tourney, however, they need to do on-line registration!! I repeat. They need to do on-line registration!! I know their reason to sell tickets only at the weigh-in stations and I don't buy it.... People HAVE to go to the stations to weigh in their fish and that's when they will spend money in door county. It's just a pain to try and get to these places just to buy a ticket See More

Love the tourney! Love the cash prizes for top 3 (instead of downriggers)! However can't figure out why they can't extend the daily closing time for weighing from 9pm to 10 or 10:30. Big bites at d...awn and dusk so people aren't even done fishing by 9, let alone making it to weigh-in stations. As of Thurs less than 0.50lb difference between top 3 - is proof enough that having to hold your fish overnight until weigh stations reopen could really cost someone! See More

Michigan DNR Fisheries Division has completed the agency’s first Lake Michigan Fisheries Management Plan. Included is this goal, "A diverse fishery comprised primarily of Chinook salmon, coho salmon, and steelhead and secondarily of lake trout and brown trout."

Last fall's bottom trawl showed adult alewives at low levels. Anglers who saw healthy fish packed with bait wonder how that can be, since much skinnier fish of a decade ago often had empty stomachs.

The total biomass of forage fish in 2017 was fourth lowest on record and alewife, a key food source for salmon and trout, dropped to a record low.

So ... they'll eat other species, but still prefer alewife when available. Tell us, researchers, just how that's helping the chinook situation?

Researchers say lake trout have flexible diets–calming fears that the resurgent species is competing with salmon for the dwindling supply of alewife in the Great Lakes.

Cold-water trout, ducks and other fish and wildlife may be threatened by a wetlands bill currently being considered by Wisconsin legislators. Unless major changes are made, the bill removes protections from about one million acres of state wetlands. While there are problem areas in the current law that prevent or delay development on a small percentage of questionable-quality wetlands, conservationists say the bill (before any possible revisions) is a bad one for the environm...ent, including fish and wildlife. The original proposal — AB 547 and SB 600 — would eliminate DNR oversight and allow filling of non-federal wetlands. While the bill retains a requirement for builders to mitigate each acre of wetland filled by creating 1.2 crew of new wetlands, not all wetlands are created equal. Trout Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited and the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation are among the many groups that testified or registered against the bills. A recent legislative hearing featured an overflow crowd, with a majority testifying or registering against the bill.

This is crazy. A good reminder to always remain vigilant while on the water.

Michigan to increase chinook stocking, a fraction of what it once planted due to abundant natural reproduction on that side of the lake.

State biologists want to stock Lake Michigan with more Chinook salmon. A new proposal from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources would increase

The DNR is seeking public comments on a commercial large mesh gill net fishery study proposed for Lake Michigan in the Sheboygan area.

Currently, such large mesh gill nets are allowed in Wisconsin north of Bailey's Harbor and in Green Bay but are not allowed south of Bailey's Harbor and all of Zone 3 due to concerns about potential impact they may have on other game fish through unintentional bycatch and mortality and user conflicts.

Commercial fishers have requested the abil...ity to use large mesh gill nets in Zone 3 to more efficiently harvest their whitefish quota.

Comments can be submitted to before Jan. 10.

Love that Michigan is taking exciting steps to introduce/reintroduce even small numbers of other fish species into the Great Lakes. Whether coaster brook trout, Atlantic salmon or now, grayling, it's something for license-buyers — those providing the majority of the money to manage the sport fishery — to get fired up about. Hoping the Wisconsin DNR takes another crack at putting in even small numbers of "other" fish such as those mentioned, and hybrids like tigers and splake. Meeting after meeting, and face-to-face in boats, marinas, sport shops, bars and restaurants, a majority of anglers say they'd like to see fewer lake trout stocked in exchange for more salmon, steelhead and other species.

TRAVERSE CITY — The Arctic grayling vanished from Michigan waters, but is now targeted for a comeback.

In 2017, anglers around the Great Lakes teamed up with scientists from U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Michigan DNR, Wisconsin DNR, Michigan Sea Grant, Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians, and MSU to collect and freeze over 1,000 fish stomachs to help with a study. However, they are short on funds.

Support research to understand how invasive species affect Great Lakes food webs by studying the diets of predatory fishes.

Former DNR fisheries biologist Mark Holey of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is going out on a high note with two awards as he prepares for year-end retirement. Holey lives in Door County.
