  1. Fishing report

    Myles, I fish out of the Saginaw River. In the last 5 days, Wednesday we got 9, Thursday 7, Friday 2, Saturday 4 Sunday 10. I normally run to the deep basin between the channel and the Callahan Reef, fishing about 20 - 26 feet of water. The walleye that are still in the inner bay are generally smaller, lots of fish that are legal with the new 13" limit, but not quite 'good eaters' as they filet up rather small. The warm water has driven the big boys deep. If I were you, keep heading north to Tawas.
  2. 41.48# king

    Outstanding!! I wanna hear the whole tale - when, where, how long . . . . I wanna see it on TV Great job guys.
  3. pt.austin 7-29

    Great job Luke. We fished out of Bayport last weekend, and still found mainly small fish. Water temp was 70 at the top, so it sure has driven the big fish out deep.
  4. We were at the Ludington Offshore Classic and the Big Boy. Incredible boxes of fish, and of course the 32# King. A charter captain we had gone with previously said the alewives are indeed thick, with each King they hook literally gorged on them. We marked some bait balls on the graph that were really unbelievable. Still a great Lake Trout fishery too. Love Ludington, and the entire Lake Michigan fishery.
  5. Great job Luke!
  6. I share your opinion of both the Cormorants and the Judge. Thanks again for the update!
  7. Thanks for the report Mike. Deep definitely seems to be the story. This heat will sure drive them from the inner bay.
  8. Saturday on the Bay

    Jim, Mike Veine is a noted author, hunting and fishing guide. In addition to being kind enough to provide current fishing reports, he drops knowledge in Woods-n-Water on a regular basis. http://www.woods-n-waternews.com/Articles-In-This-Issue-i-2017-06-01-225605.112113-WALLEYES.html Paul
  9. Saturday on the Bay

    Wow salmon setups for walleye in June? Seems like an early exit from the bay, but maybe that's because there are so many walleye. I saw your post about the slot off Sand Point. We started Sunday in the same 12-14' and only got a few, so we ran up to Nianquin's steep bank and caught a few more. We caught a couple perch Saturday and marked a lot of fish in the middle of the water column that I figured were perch. I love catching walleye but would like to see a healthy diverse population of fish too. We are blessed to have such a great fishery.
  10. Saturday on the Bay My beautiful bride and I set lines in 6-8 ft off the Kawkawlin at 7:30 and caught a nice little eater right away but after 30 minutes of zebras and salad we headed deeper. We set up just south of the dumping grounds and trolled sw on the deep side of a contour line in 12-14 feet of water and picked up 8 more nice eyes and a couple perch. Things slowed about noon and we ran further north to 23' but only got one more for about an hour of fishing. Simple crawler spread on the bottom at 1.5 mph. The huminbird said the water was 64 degrees which I though was surprisingly warm. Great day on the bay. I wanna give a huge shout out to Mike Vein for the water bucket tip with crawlers. Genius, why didn't I think of that. Forever grateful.
  11. Great job in tough conditions Mike. Always love your articles. Thanks for the update!
  12. Great job as always Mike. Were you fishing shallow water? This wind has been a bugger this year. I'm hoping they stay shallow a while longer. Thanks for the report, and keep 'em coming.
  13. slower day on the bay

    Still a great day! We did about the same thing. Went out of the Saginaw about 3:00, fished in close over by the Kawkawlin and state park. Fished about two and a half hours and got a couple small walleye and a nice northern, threw a few shorts back and the wind got irritating so we headed in. Bugs were coming off this morning so hopefully they stay close through the long weekend.
  14. very skinny water 5-15

    Oh, and tell your buddy Johnny I have boat envy. My 21' Trophy has a 150 smoker
  15. very skinny water 5-15

    Wow, now that's skinny water. We fished a couple hours Tuesday evening off the Kawkawlin in 8 ft for a drum and a rock bass
