5/9/15, Saginaw Bay, Au Gres, Fishing Report

The weather forecast was very iffy today with a 90% chance of thundershowers at Au Gres, but as is typically the case, the National Weather Service was very wrong. I checked the radar this morning and the storms were missing our area to the north, so we hit the water with a forecast of 5-10 knot, northerly winds. The winds were stronger than predicted though with 15+ knot winds all morning. It took us a bit longer to reach the fishing area due to the waves, but the winds did not slow down the walleye bite much as my clients mostly from SE Michigan, but with one from Minnesota, pulled a quick, four man limit of walleyes. They were used to fishing on Lake St. Clair so the fast paced fishing action on the Bay was a pleasant change of pace for them. It took us far longer to get back to port with the choppy conditions than it actually did to catch over 20 walleyes. We used the same program of spinner/crawler rigs trolled at close to 1.6 mph that has been working all week. I'm trying to run a light, six rod spread, but keeping all the lines in the water is difficult with the constant action taking place on the boat. We did have a few light, sprinkles on the water today, but for the most part, it was dry and fairly pleasant fishing conditions. I have a few, scheduled days off the water so I can take care of some chores, and with the wet and windy forecast for those days, it will work out great when I get back to the awesome fishing action mid-week.
