Hey there everyone this is Cory again with this week's fishing report. Fishing has been very slow during the past week for all species. The winds have been out of the E and out of the S. The turbidity on the lake is clear up in the North and Middle Channel's, but in front of Metro Beach(16 Mile Rd) and out from Selfridge Air Base 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 slow right now, but a few fish are being caught in these areas, 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 chartruese. 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. Bottom bouncers are the way to go. Colors on the are harnesses are same as previously mentioned.
Muskie are being caught trolling out in the Bay off of Selfridge Air Base in appr. 10 feet of water. Also straight out from the Clinton River in appr. 12-14 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 slow out in the main lake. In the canals North of Selfridge they are still biting on worms and bobbers. In Anchor Bay out from the Tinfish restuarant boats are using small tube baits on slip bobbers to get them.
Yellow perch are still 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. See you at the launches, Cory
