Britsol Lake: In Barry County was producing a fair to good number of panfish.
Coloma Area: Ice was in good shape, but fishing has been slow. Those putting in their time are catching fair numbers of panfish on Paw Paw LakeLake of the Woods and Magician Lake

Muskegon Lake: Had some ice issues so anglers will need to use caution. There is not much snow on the ice however there were some bad spots where the ice might only be a couple inches thick. Foot traffic as opposed to machines would be wise and be sure to take a spud to check the ice ahead of you. Perch were caught on the west side in 45 feet and in the bays and marinas in as shallow as 10 feet. Walleye anglers were found off Fisherman’s Landing.

Crappies, bluegills, walleyes and pike have all been active, especially the crappies. Anglers report catching good numbers of pike and perch on Fish Lake, pike on Crooked Lake, and some decent bluegills on Long Lake and Guernsey Lake in Cloverdale.
