In search of the tasty northern pike
Pike are extremely popular during the ice fishing season but are readily available throughout much of the year.
There are many notable northern pike fisheries located throughout Michigan, including on Muskegon, Portage and Manistee lakes and Michigamme and Houghton lakes. But this species can be found in many other lakes and virtually all larger rivers in the state.
Please note there are many regulations for northern pike regarding minimum size and possession limit.
Be sure to read up on this species in the current Michigan Fishing Guide and on the northern pike page on the Michigan Department of Natural Resources website.
