Hey there everyone this is Cory again with this week's fishing report on the lake. Fishing has been slowed by the mayfly hatch and not many good catches have been reported.
Water temps have been holding right around 67-70 on the main lake and in the channels 60-63. The water clarity is clear and we now have a lot of weed growth to the surface in Anchor Bay. Winds have been out of the W and SW during the last week.
Walleye have been fairly slow, but some are still being caught. The areas that fish are coming in from are the South, North, and Middle Channels. In the South Channel they are trolling crawler harnesses with bottom bouncers in 18-20 feet of water. The main area right now is North of the Firecracker and South of San Souci. Some boats are jigging for them and having little success. In the North Channel boats are trolling for them in about 18 feet of water with crawler harnesses and bottom bouncers out towards Grassy Island. (This area is located between Deckers Landing and Grassy Island.) In the Middle Channel boats are drifting and trolling with crawler harnesses and bottom bouncers in 20 feet of water. Colors on the crawler harnesses are silver blades and red beads, chartruese, and gold blades with red beads.
Bass have been starting to pick up in the Northern areas, but the Dumping Grounds around 9 Mile Rd. and 8 Mile Rd. are still the most productive. Here boats are casting tube jigs (white, cream or green with brown flake) in about 6-8 feet of water. Find some weed structure here and fish around those. Some spinners have worked, but the blades need to be silver.
Muskie are being caught in the Northern areas of the lake. In between Grassy Island and Strawberry island (North and South direction) boats are trolling in 13 feet of water about 4 feet under the surface.
Yellow perch have been the hot item as of late. 2 areas have been fairly productive for them, including in front of the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club (8 Mile Rd.) and out from the Firecracker on the South Channel(Shipping Channel). In front of the Yacht Club boats are drifting and anchoring with perch rigs and slip bobbers in 12 feet of water. Minnows(spottails 1.5-2inches) are the best. In the Shipping Channel boats are anchoring in 18-20 feet of water and are using slip bobbers and perch rigs to pick them up.
Northen pike and panfish are very slow right now.
Hope everyone is enjoying the great weather and see you at the launches, Cory.
