It's been awhile since I checked this site, obviously because of the cold putting the river guys on the sidelines. You've probably answered this question for yourself by now, but yes, guys are fishing. Saw 3 portables on White Lake here in Highland yesterday. I was thinking of going after work on Wednesday, but may wait until Saturday or Sunday. I've been wondering, in your opinion, is Woodward Lake worth trying? My nephew lives in Ionia and I go w/him once in awhile. I'll let you know when/if I get over there and will hook up w/you if our schedules work out. I have a lot of vacation time, and like to fish on weekdays whenever I can. Don't know if that works for you. I'd like to fish Jordan Lake, as in the past I've done well there. Have you tried that one?
Happy New Year!
