Hello there again fishing buddies. This is Cory from the DNR with this weeks fishing report.
Weather has been great and the winds have been variable while fishing has been moderate.
Yellow perch has been the largest targeted fish as of late. Some boats are getting close to their limit, while others are coming up short to get half. The most popular areas are out from the 400 Club, 9 mile Tower, and the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club. Starting with the 400 club boats are sitting in 12-13 feet of water and 15-16 feet of water. Most boats are anchored while using perch rigs with 1 inch emerald shinners at both depth ranges. Out from the 9 mile Tower and the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club boats are in 14-15 feet of water anchored. Same tackle as at the 400 Club. Some limits have been reported and many boats have had 40 or more.
Walleye have dropped off considerably. The last reported good catch was in the South Channel along the backside of Gull Island. The depths here range from 14-20 feet. Boats were trolling here with crawler harnesses. Colors still vary from chartruese to bright orange with a black dot.
Smallmouth and largemouth have been reported to be good in Anchor Bay in the shallows. Spinnerbaits are being used. Colors are white and chartruese combo and just white.
Muskie have been caught down in the Dumping Grounds.
No northern pike have been recorded.
Good luck with all the fishing hope everyone is catching what the want. See you at the launches, Cory.

Thanks Cory, hopefully this weather will blow through quickly.......Perch are hot on both American and Canadian sides, some friends have done well 3 -4 miles out from 14 mile road, we have done well on the Canadian side 3 miles SE of the weather buoy. Emerald shiners are the ticket using simple hooks (no beads/blades). From yesterday morning (sorry, not good with the pictures):
