Hey there everyone this is Cory again with this weeks fishing report. Yesterday was the best day I have seen this year, great weather, good fishing, and a great work day. The lake is very turbid, but the temperatures are on the rise which means the fishing is going to begin to pick up. The lake temperatures are as follows. In the North Channel 53-55 degrees and in the main Lake anywhere from 55-63 degrees.
Walleye are starting to really pick up off of 16 Mile Rd and 15 Mile Rd. in appr. 4-6 feet trolling with crawler harnesses about 1-1.5 mph. The colors are varying between white with red and blue dots, silver with red beads, and a hammered copper or brass. The other area for walleye right now is in the North Channel out from Deckers Landing and across from the Sni Bora. Jigging in about 50-65 feet of water with larger minnows.(1 inch or longer) Make sure that you are back trolling and jigging with the current.
Yellow perch are still out from the Salt River around 23 Mile Rd. in about 4-6 feet of waterl using slip bobbers with crawlers and minnows. The new technique that has been working this last week is a regular bobber with some split shot and a crawler. Drifting has been working, but anchoring has shown the best results in the last week.
Northern Pike are slow right now, but most are still being caught in the Sni Bora off of the North Channel. Depths are 5-8 feet. Cast off the weed lines with Husky jerks and spinner baits.
Panfish including crappie, bluegill, and pumpkinseed are being caught in Anchor Bay in canals in about 4-7 feet of water. (Temps in the canals range from 60-65 degrees.) All are being caught on slip bobbers and regular bobbers. Crawlers and wax worms for bluegills and pumpkinseeds and minnows or crawlers for crappie. Some hot spots include out from 23 Mile Rd., off of the Tin Fish restaurant in about 4-7 feet of water, and out from the Selfridge Air Base in about 3-5 feet.
Hopefully everyone is successful this week and good luck to everyone. See you at the launches, Cory
