Sag River 12/31

Recommended Posts

Last fishing report of the year fellas. Found our way out onto the ice of the saginaw river today between saginaw and the z bridge, new spot I have never been to before. Fished 15-20fow. Caught a lot of walleye, too bad 95% of them were not legal. Between 5 of us we caught 5 keepers. Blue/silver jiggin rap #5 was top producer, pink and purple buckshot spoon came in 2nd. I had a good battle with a real dandy that I lost right near the hole, got a look at him 2x and he went bye bye. Ice was not great, 3" for the most part, which is not what I like to be standing on. Anyways, it was a stellar fishing season and a long one this year. I predict that Saginaw Bay fishing will be nothing short of phenomenal again next year. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I did catch fish, but I did not land one keeper, but you're right at least there were 5 caught amongst the group. It sure was fun this morning.

Jason, I'm glad you made it out. Those undersized fish are our future. Never make eye contact with a fish, unless you can net or gaff it. It is not only bad luck, it also frightens the fish.:lol: Sorry ya lost that big un.

Nice job Jason. Something pulling on your line is better than nothing pulling on your line. ;)

Same spot, same M O, same results. Lots of little guys and one dandy 5-6#er. Going to have to try a night bite and see if we kind find more keepers. I bet by days end between all of us we had caught 60-70 walleye, with only a few keepers between us all. Big one was caught on a jig w/minnow.

Too cold to be on the ice today! Should have been in the duck blind with us, but we didnt get many keepers either.

The little ones are our future. :)

It is surely looking good as far as I can tell. 2 years ago we caught a lot of little ones as well, so this is just a sign of good things to come. I wish a few of them were perch....yum...
