  1. Thanks for the report Mike. Deep definitely seems to be the story. This heat will sure drive them from the inner bay.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Great job in tough conditions Mike. Always love your articles. Thanks for the update!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. very skinny water 5-15

    Oh, and tell your buddy Johnny I have boat envy. My 21' Trophy has a 150 smoker
  9. 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
  10. 16 fish limit SHALLOW

    Great job Luke. We had some obligations to attend to and didn't get out until 3:30 in the afternoon, and caught three nice 'eyes in 10 fow off the Kawkawlin.
  11. saginaw bay 3-6-17

    Wow, a Laker that deep in the bay? I've heard such tales, but never saw one. Great job Luke.

  13. inside islands weed bed 9-8

    Great to hear Luke. I fish out of the Saginaw, and last weekend marked a bunch of fish but only caught one walleye. Lot's of guys fishing perch. Colder nights will help a lot.
  14. STORMY LIMITS 8/13

    Wow, that's a rough start to a fishing trip. Glad to hear the only injury was to the deer. I have a bad habit of 'well I'm out here might as well keep fishing' and ignoring difficult conditions. As I get older, my discretion is improving, but still fall victim to 'but they're bitin' syndrome. Fished out of Frankfort last month, got pushed around pretty good by some 4'+ until we finally called it. Nice to know that you made it in safely.
  15. Great Job Frank! That little guy is a fisherman for life for sure now. I too am cautiously optimistic on the new regulations. Everyone knows the problem is Cormorants, not Walleye, but the Fed's . . . . Too bloody hot, and yes something very strange this year with the NE wind. My boat on the Saginaw river is just a day tripping beach toy until the days grow shorter and the nights cool off. Nice to see your report as always.
