Heavy winds and storms have kept many anglers off the water. Pier fishing action has been slow. Fishing will improve with better weather conditions.

Southeast Lower Peninsula

Lake Erie - Fishing has slowed this week due to high winds and rain. Perch fishing that was very good last week could only be rated fair at best this week. The best action was in 13 to 14 feet of water off Luna Pier. Bass fishing near the mouth of the River Raisin was producing fair to good action. Fishing should pick up again with better weather conditions.

Huron River - After the recent rains, waters were high and muddy. Anglers will find good catches of carp and catfish using leeches. Smallmouth action continues on crayfish and leeches.

Detroit River - Good size perch were hitting on the east of Celeron Island. Limits of walleye were caught near Sugar Island in Grosse Ile.

Lake St. Clair - Wind and rain have kept many anglers away. The few who were fishing have caught walleye when trolling crawler harnesses with bottom bouncers.

Lexington - Perch were being taken from weed beds in 15 to 25 feet of water from south of Lexington to north of Port Sanilac on minnows. Size ranges from small to jumbos of 13 to 15 inches. Perch fishing was spotty, so move around until you find an active school of fish.

Grindstone City - Good catches of walleye were reported in 20 to 40 feet of water on crawler harnesses.

Port Austin - Lake trout were still hitting in 80 to 120 feet of water around the tip of the thumb and down to Harbor Beach.

Saginaw Bay - Best reports came from out around buoys 1 through 4, which is at the end of the marked shipping channel in around 24 feet of water. Boats were converging on this area from all the various launch sites around the bay. Crawler harnesses continue to be the most consistent bait, but crank baits were also taking fish. They were also doing well on the Callahan Reef and in the Slot 5 miles north of Quanicassee.
