This coming weekend, Saturday June 13th and Sunday June 14th will be Michigan's annual Free Fishing Weekend. Both resident and non-residents can fish without a license on these two days however all the regulations that govern fishing in Michigan will still apply. For a list of statewide fishing events on this special weekend, go to www.michigan.gov/dnr. Warmer weather and less wind will greatly improve fishing success around the state.

Southeast Lower Peninsula

Lake Erie - Fishing was slow for most anglers. Walleye were caught but not in big numbers. Fish could be found in 25 to 27 feet of water between the Fermi Power Plant and Stoney Point. Dipsey divers and spoons or a purple crawler harness caught fish. A few perch were caught on minnows in 22 to 25 feet of water near the E-Buoy. Those fishing off the Pte. Mouillee State Game Area found some perch in shallow waters near the tubes at the end of Roberts Road. Freshwater drum are hitting on minnows.

Huron River - White bass and some catfish have been caught at Lebo Park. Look for bluegill and crappie in the backwaters.

Detroit River - Some walleye are moving back into the mouth of the river. Fish were caught on crawler harnesses during the day and pencil plugs at night. The white bass action is almost done but a few white perch were caught.

Lexington - Shore and dock anglers have caught a mix of walleye, smallmouth bass, pike, crappie, rock bass and bullhead. This harbor is somewhat more protected so anglers can usually fish on the days that are windy.

Harbor Beach - Smallmouth bass are hitting in the harbor and some walleye were caught in the gap between the breakwalls when fishing at night.

Grindstone City - Has good smallmouth bass action around the harbor and for those wading in Eagle Bay.

Port Austin - Windy conditions have limited those out trolling for salmon and lake trout. Smallmouth bass were caught inside the breakwall.

Saginaw Bay - Walleye continue to hit near the Spark Plug, off the mouth of the Saginaw River, off Jones Road, and near the Callahan Reef. Down near Quanicassee, it appears the fish are moving up towards Sebewaing and Bay Port where anglers have caught good numbers in about 15 feet of water in the Slot and outside the islands. Closer to Caseville, anglers are heading south to the Slot off Sand Point or the weeds in Wildfowl Bay for excellent catches of walleye.

Saginaw River - Walleye are being caught in the lower river.

Quanicassee River - Shore anglers have caught good numbers of channel catfish.

NOTE: I know this is a little delayed. See my weather report thread for my details. Thanks!
