Filter Hamlin Lake Fishing Reports:
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.
