traverse city, MI bay fishing?


Recommended Posts

I'll be headed up to traverse city, MI next week for 5 days and was wondering if there is any fishing to be done in either the west or east Grand Traverse Bays. I'll be leaving the bulk of my salmon gear at home since I'll be mostly staying at long lake a few miles south of the bay for some bass, walleye, and muskie/northern fishing but since I'll have our center console was debating hitting the bay up as well. Last year I inquired through local tackle shops for fishing around november as that's when I was up there and was told nothing but whitefish. Now that it's earlier in the season, anyone local know if there's fish to be caught and a general idea on what bay and where?

thanks in advance.

Awesome smallmouth action! I have never fished it this time of the year but I would fish deep drops in 20-40 fow with a drop shot rig and a leach or goby imitation. We fish it when they are on the beds in June and kill them! Witnessed a 7lb smallie pulled out of the east bay buy a guy I know. There is also a pretty plentiful white fish population I believe.
