Lake St. Claire: Anglers have been catching crappies, perch and bluegills. 

Lake SkegemogHad decent perch fishing. 
Lake Missaukee: Ice anglers are taking some bluegill and crappie. For pike, try along the east side.   
Thumb Lake: Ice anglers are catching splake on minnows. 
Lakes Cadillac and MitchellIce fishing is going strong, and anglers were still doing decent especially for walleye and pike. Bluegill numbers were up and down. Walleye anglers were jigging or using tip-ups in 10 to 15 feet. Pike are hitting mainly on tip-ups. Kentwood Park on Lake Cadillac was producing some nice crappie. On Lake Mitchell, bluegill and crappie were found out from Small Cove.
Hamlin LakeAnglers were using Wilson Hill Park to access the lake, though anglers are still being advised to use caution as there may be thin spots. Catch rates slowed, with most getting 10 fish or less. Though the numbers were down, the size of the fish has been decent, with a few big crappie mixed in with the bluegills. The perch were small at 3-5 inches. Those targeting pike had limited success, and many of those caught were undersize. A few walleye were caught. Near the South Bayou, anglers were struggling to find keeper-size bluegill. 
Mecosta County: Inland lakes in the area were producing bluegills, crappie and some perch. Pike anglers are taking fish on tip-ups or with spears. 
Traverse City: Crappies and bluegills have been caught on Arbutus and Spider lakes, where there was about 5 inches of ice. Caution is advised any time you venture out on the ice. As of last week fresh run of steelhead had run up the Boardman River and anglers were catching a few fish.
