Strong winds continue to hamper those fishing not only the Great Lakes but also the large inland lakes. Warmer weather will certainly help catch rates. Watch for bluegills on the beds as some fish are actually spawning again.

Southeast Lower Peninsula

Lake Erie - Some nice walleye were caught around the Banana Dike and off Stoney Point when trolling spoons, Erie Dearies or a crawler harness with crawlers in 17 to 24 feet of water. Perch were caught near the Dumping Grounds off Luna Pier and catfish were hitting near the Hot Ponds.

Huron River - Crappie are still in the backwaters and bluegills are in the fast water near the dam. This has been a banner year for catfish and carp.

Detroit River - For walleye, boats are trolling spoons or crawler harnesses. For perch, try south of Celeron Island and Sugar Island with perch rigs and minnows.

Lake St. Clair - Bass, walleye, perch and some pike are being caught.

Harbor Beach - Walleye were caught on crawler harnesses or Hot-n-Tots in 40 feet of water. Smallmouth bass were taken off the pier.

Grindstone City - Walleye were caught in 25 to 40 feet of water here as well.

Port Austin - Walleye were caught in 45 to 50 feet of water off the lighthouse. Lake trout were taken in 130 to 160 feet of water. Pier fishing was slow.

Saginaw Bay - Walleye have been caught in 20 to 25 feet of water around the Spark Plug and near Buoys 1 and 2. Anglers from Quanicassee and Sebewaing were heading out to the shipping channel and the Spark Plug while trolling crawler harnesses. Fish were caught in the Slot off Sunset Bay in 14 feet of water and outside the islands north of Sebewaing.

Saginaw River - A few bass were caught near Essexville.
