[12/25/19] Merry Christmas from all of us here at Michigan Stinger Pro Team. May you and your family have a safe and blessed day!
We would like everyone to share a tip or 2 that could help other's be successful with our products. Lead lengths, speed etc..
These fish were caught on the Saginaw Bay with a 6 ft leader to our spoons going 2.7 mph.
[10/07/19] Let's share some pictures of the fish we caught this year!
With shoreline on four out of five Great Lakes and numerous inland fisheries, recreational fishing in Michigan is a favorite pastime enjoyed by over 2.7 million anglers. Recreational fishing is also an economic driver in the state as Michigan boasts a $3.7 billion recreational fishing economy which creates 27,979 jobs. Commercial fishing and restaurant interests are putting a lot of pressure on State Legislature to pass these bills and endanger sportfish populations. Its critically important for Michigan’s recreational fisheries that the State Legislature does not pass these bills and hearing from businesses like yours would go a long way.
If you would like to be included on the letter, please simply reply to me by COB on Friday, September 8.
Thanks for your consideration! - Chad

Dear Chairman Howell and Chairman McBroom,
As businesses that are part of Michigan’s $3.7 billion recreational fishing economy, we are writing today to express concern with proposed legislation that will threaten Michigan’s renowned sport fisheries and the many communities who rely on them. We kindly ask that when considering SB 389 and HB 4790 – companion bills to allow the harvest of lake trout, yellow perch, walleye and other game fish for commercial fishing operations – you keep in mind the legacy of sportfishing in Michigan and the negative impact increased commercial quotas on sportfish populations will have for recreational anglers throughout our state.
Recreational fishing is one of Michigan’s most popular outdoor activities, and the state ranks as one of the top five states in the country in number of anglers and economic expenditures. Michigan anglers are a major driver of the state’s outdoor recreation economy, with 2,716,157 anglers generating $3.7 billion in economic output, supporting 27,979 jobs. In addition, recreational fishermen and the industry contribute substantially to conservation through fishing license fees and the excise tax on fishing equipment. Without these user-generated funds, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources would be unable to successfully manage our fisheries resources for the benefit of the public.
Compared to the state’s substantial recreational fishing industry, currently there are only 19 licensed commercial fishing operations in the state. In 2015, commercial harvest of whitefish was valued at $4.7 million. While commercial fishing is part of Michigan’s heritage and culture, it is not worth risking the future of sportfishing in the state by allowing increased commercial exploitation of our fisheries resources.
Instead of considering SB 389 and HB 4790 we ask that you pass HB 4569, HB 4567 and HB 4568. These bills help to ensure that state-licensed commercial fishing operations are held responsible for the harvest and selling of game fish and require them to report the location of their nets. Updating these commercial fishing regulations and keeping sought-after gamefish protected is imperative for the future of Michigan’s fisheries resources and all who depend on them.
We thank you for your time and consideration of this request.

The walleye fishing on Lake Erie and the Saginaw Bay has been on fire with our spoons!
Piles = smiles!
The walleye on the Saginaw Bay are smashing our spoons!! Behind any type of diver at 2.5 to 3 mph has been the key.
What a beautiful spring king! Over 30 pounds and on a clean spoon off of a rigger.

Blake Stotzer is having blast fishing our big Trip Lip baits for Ling Cod. Looks like I may have to go to British Columbia to get in on some of that action!
We've been getting great reports from West Michigan charters use our Premium Strips.
Some great walleye and steelhead from Lake Erie with our spoons and Mario Chance.
2 of our 7 kings from today from Ludington. The spoon bite was good for us today.
While Jean and the rest of the crew are working at the shop to get everyone’s orders out as fast as they can, we have sent Rob to Orlando. If you’re at ICAST, please stop by booth 5454, say hi and see new products for 2019.
Capt. David Diver is having a great morning on Lake Erie with the Trip Lips.
We know the kings are on fire in southern Michigan, but did you know the walleye are on fire on the Saginaw Bay as well?
If your fishing for 20 lb fish or 2 lb fish, we have you covered this weekend.
The Trip Lip Minnow is already catching fish on Lake Erie. This is the first open water walleye of 2018 on the Trip Lip that I’m aware of. It fell for the chrome and blue one. Nice fish!
Been a little busy but here's what was working on the Saginaw Bay during ice fishing for Captain Mark.
Wonder Bread Glow
Blue and Silver as always.
During our cold spell he used our regular summer trolling spoons for a slower, lethal presentation. If anyone has any question about how Captain Mark uses our spoons in the winter. Please contact him at 989-529-4097.
EDIT: Contest is over. Ok, well I’ve decided to also create a contest because of the stomach contents of that Lake Trout caught earlier today that was posted. Contest will close at midnight tomorrow night, Sunday February 4th. I cleaned the fish and counted every single alewife with 2 witnesses. Winner that guesses closest will win any 6 Stinger spoons of their choice. Good luck! Ps. Here’s a sneak peek but it’s not even close...
Bill Bobola with a nice Lake Charlevoix Lake Tout on a 1/2 ounce super glow wonderbread Scorpion. Nice fish Bill!
