Muskegon Lake (connected to Lake Michigan) is seeing a resurgence of its once exceptional perch ice fishing. In fact, many biologist believe the fishery will actually surpass that of the 80′s. Perch are almost always hungry and limits catches (50/angler) of perch in the 7-12″ range are being caught almost daily. Our guided ice fishing trips are 5 hours and start with one of our guides meeting the anglers at the launch, loading up on an ATV and trailer and heading to the fishing grounds.
