Anglers love fishing on Hamlin Lake during the winter. Hamlin Lake is located just four miles north of Ludington in West Michigan. Ice fishing on Hamlin Lake is a great way to enjoy the winter--just set up a shanty and get ready to catch some bluegills, crappies, perch, walleye, pike and muskie. Throughout the year, Hamlin Lake and its bayous offer an outstanding variety of fish including tiger muskie, northern pike, walleye, large and small mouth bass, perch, crappie and bluegill. Lake Michigan salmon and steelhead are seasonally plentiful at the dam site within the Ludington State Park. Boat and motor rentals, launch ramps, bait, supplies, food and gas are never too far away.

Hamlin Lake Ice Fishing Report for Jan 28, 2016

Fishing has been lighter the past several days, but seeing some nice bluegill and smaller perch. We had a good-sized walleye come in around dusk on Wednesday. There's a about 1" of slush on top of around 6" of good ice. Still many people fishing, but biting has slowed down. If the expected nice weather happens this weekend, the catches should start kicking back in again. Hot tackle now is anything with a glow, anglers have switched to using red spikes. Stop into Hamlin Grocery for all your fishing supplies.

People fishing on the Indian Pete Bayou on Upper Hamlin Lake are catching nice bluegill and small lake perch. At the Narrows, there have been several nice pick caught in the last couple of days, along with some walleye. At Wilson Hill Park, Victory Park, and the old boy scout camp, the bluegill grounds are producing good catches, right up to the limits. Nice bluegill sizes from 8-10". Wednesday this week was a little slow but the pace picked up from Wednesday evening into Thursday with multiple people catching the limit. Please be mindful of the rules about limits as the DNR has been out in full force. The ice is good, about 6 inches or more, with some slushy areas. Quads and sleds have been out this past week. Stop into Hamlin Grocery for your bait and tackle. We have a great supply of new jigs, tungstens, wax rims, spikes, red spikes, and mousies. Live bait includes perch minnows, golden shiners, suckers, blues and decoys.

According to a local fisherman: On Upper Hamlin Lake, the bluegill bite was slow, although there were reports of limit catches last weekend. However, near the end of this particular fishing session, a 24" walleye was caught on a tungsten jig and a red spike 200 yards from Wilson Hill Park in 12 feet of water. So get out, wet a line and enjoy the great outdoors.
