Hey there everyone this is Cory again with this week's fishing report. I have been seeing some good catches from lots of places on the lake so I will make this as accurate as possible. The winds have been out of the W lately and out of the S. The turbidity on the lake is clear up in the North and Middle Channel's and in front of Metro Beach(16 Mile Rd) the water is still murky. The water temps are right around 62-68 around the lake so right now the temperature is just right for those walleyes.
Walleyes are being in caught in 3 areas right now consistantly. Out from 16 Mile Rd and Gino's Surf, in the North Channel, and in the Middle Channel. Out from Metro Beach (16 Mile Rd.) boats are trolling with crawler harnesses in about 8-10 feet of water. Speeds are running between 1.0-1.2 mph. Colors of the harnesses are silver with red beads, hammered brass or gold with red beads, and the good old wonder bread(white with red and blue dots.) In the North Channel boats are still back trolling for them in 50-65 feet of water. The most productive methods are with chugging sinkers or with larger head jigs. Minnows need to be spottails at a larger size like 1.5 to 2 inches. In the Middle Channel boats are picking them up on crawler harnesses in about 20-25 feet of water. Here speeds have not been specified, but probably the same as metioned before. Color is same as previously mentioned.
Muskie are being caught trolling out in the Bay off of Selfridge Air Base in appr. 10 feet of water. Body baits are the most common tackle right now. The depths running the lures are 3-4 feet under the surface.
Northern Pike are still being picked up off of Selfridge Air Base in about 6-9 feet of water. Boats are casting crankbaits and getting them on crawler harnesses.
Panfish are starting to slow just slightly out in the main lake. In the canals North of Selfridge they are still biting on worms and bobbers. In the lake out from the Tinfish restuarant boats are using small tube baits on slip bobbers to get them.
Yellow perch are being caught out from the Salt River (22 Mile Rd.) in about 4-7 feet of water. Bobbers and pieces of crawlers are working well.
Goodluck to everyone out there on the lake this week. Remember that this coming weekend the 12th and 13th is free fishing weekend. Also remember that even though it is free, fishing laws still have to be abided by. Hopefully everyone is enjoying the decent weather we have had in the past week. See you at the launches, Cory

When you back troll you have better control of the boat to follow structure on the bottom. See how that works bripow. Going backwards it's easy to control the boat it turns faster and you don't have to wait for the front to come around.
