Walleye are bit tougher lately. Some fish are still being pulled over weed beds north of the Nayanquing Bar near Pinconning. 10-17 feet of water seems to be target. The area between the Sailboat Buoys and the Water Intake held fish for a while, and should be another consideration. Flicker Shads and Spoons were popular with the charter captains that remained in the marina. Perch has been hit and miss the last week or so. When it’s on, some very nice fish have been taken, and limits were common. Wind and T-storms recently has made getting out more a chore. Keep your eye on the sky. We are anxious for a more stable weather pattern.
Walleye are still being caught in the inner bay. Focus lately seems to be targeting weed beds in 12-17′ of water. Some nice pike and smallmouth bass are also being taken. Crank baits and spoons are the most popular method. Crawlers trolled in deeper water producing as well. Check your presentation often for baits fouled with weeds. No perch reports yet.
Walleye fishing has been steady near the Spark Plug (red & white). The numerous N.E. winds have had anglers running up near Buoy #1 and fishing back down wind across their favorite spots. All methods are taking fish. Surface water temps are back down around 69-70.
Fishing has been great when the wind settles down. Spark Plug, A Buoy, Dumping grounds, Cigar have all been producing fish. Crawlers, crank baits, and spoons are all working.
