BIG RAPIDS – The ice is thick enough and it’s prime-time currently for ice fishermen.
In Mecosta County, “fishing continues to be good,” Tom Vernon at Frank’s Sporting Goods in Morley said. “There’s some steelhead showing back up in the river. Walleye fishing has been really good at both Croton and Hardy pond. We recently had one of our regular customers come in and he brought in a 44 ¼-inch northern pike that weighed a little over 22 pounds.”
