4/29/16, Saginaw Bay, Au Gres, Fishing Report

Recommended Posts


We had a good bite going for the first few hours of the charter this morning taking 20 nice walleyes in about three hours of fishing. Then the wind did a quick, 90 degree shift and the bite slowed considerably. My clients from the Frankenmuth/Saginaw area still amassed a bountiful catch of walleyes though that were all chunky, 18 to 25 inchers. We did take one pre-spawn female, but the rest were an assortment of post spawn males and females. We caught all our fish today on spinner/crawler rigs trolled at about 1.4 mph near the bottom. Color did not mater as all rigs I had out were hit about equally. The water was riled up from the big, northeast winds over the last couple days and the water temperature is still pretty cold for this time of year at just 46 degrees. Oddly, I have a Saturday opening in my schedule for tomorrow, but after that I am booked solid for several weeks. If I don't book a last minute charter, I plan to fix or enhance a couple minor things on the boat and also give it a thorough scrub job since they are calling for some sunshine tomorrow.
