6/12/18, Saginaw Bay, Au Gres, Fishing Report

Recommended Posts


After a blow-day yesterday complete with vicious, northeast winds, I was happy to see light winds and blue skies today.  We had a robust bite to start the day and the first 20 walleyes came pretty fast, but then the breeze died down completely and we had a lull in the action, although we did pick up some during that slow period.  At about noon though the bite picked back up and my clients from Caledonia, MI filled out their 32 walleye limit and also took a couple nice catfish and several jumbo perch with one over 12" long.  The fish were feeding mostly on smelt judging by the barf in the bottom of my cooler.  I did mark lots of schools of baitfish, which were likely smelt, and walleye love smelt.  We caught fish on bottom and suspended and color did not seem to mater much today.  A slower trolling speed with my spinner/crawler rigs of 1.3ish mph was best.  I have the same Caledonian foursome tomorrow too, and with a favorable weather forecast, they will likely see similar, excellent fishing on Wednesday too.  I still have a couple openings at the end of June and lots of open dates during the prime time of July and August too if you want to get in on the fantastic fishing.

I hope you’re right on the Wednesday forecast. We are fishing out of Au Grey and it looks like a chance of T storms in the morning and then A blow after that.  Nice work on the walleye
