Reports are that walleye fishing has slowed a bit. Those trolling last weekend said floating weeds made fishing TOUGH. Fouled baits made for unproductive fishing. Perch reports are scattered and spotty. Those catching aren’t talking much. Traditional areas such as the Nayanquing Bar, Pinconning Bar, and the red and white Spark Plug have been talked about. A number of boats launched today, maybe we’ll get some word on where to go. It’s another beautiful day. Get out and enjoy the Saginaw Bay.
Walleye are still being caught in the inner Bay near Linwood Beach Marina. Reports are that fishermen are targeting depths 14′ or more below the surface in 20′-28′ of water. Perch are coming from Nayanquing Bar area and north towards Pinconning. 14′-17′ of water is a popular depth. Some have anchored in the sail boat buoys and old river channel for perch as well. Move until you find them. Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day Weekend. We appreciate your business.
Water temps remained in the mid-70’s throughout July and the walleye fishing has stayed consistent for most of our summer. Nice coolers of fish the first couple days in August suggest we still have some time to chase walleye. Spoons and body baits are producing well for those trolling faster. More and more perch are coming in, mostly by those pulling crawlers and harnesses. Some are starting to anchor and target perch. We do have minnows in the marina store.
Inner Bay water temps are great this July, staying in the low to mid 70’s. Fishermen are catching a lot of fish within 4-5 miles of the marina. The sailboat buoys have been holding fish all summer. 14-20 foot of water has been producing limit catches. Crawlers, spoons, Flicker Shad have been the most popular baits.
