Welcome to the site! Have heard that people have been catching nice perch in good numbers in loon, average size for the area. Try the north side of the lake where depth ranges from 10' to 45' fish the drops and look for structure. The south side has a deeper hole towards the middle where depth max is 66'. Lake is known for pike, bluegills, crappies, and perch. Be careful where the river comes into loon.

Have not got a chance to fish Leelanau recently. do not know about the ice conditions on North or South Leelanau.

Glad you made it out! Sorry to hear about the fish, but some days are just like that... We are fishing Upper Herring tomorrow. Saw 10 people out there today, a lot where fishing the south west side. There are a lot of weed beds there, so im assuming they were after pike and panfish. Will post updates tomorrow with ice and fishing report. As far as ice, Sunday and Monday are sure not going to help :(... But the rest of the week and the lows for the nights are cold enough to build ice! So we will keep our fingers crossed and pray the weather men our right =)
