Houghton Lake 5/2/15

Houghton Lake
First fish of the year.
Houghton Lake 10 FOW 

Headed up to the lake at 5pm and fished till dark.  Warm weather is really making the fish come to life.  We started out in 11 FOW on the West side of the lake and found bait fish and pike.  We worked the area until dark and ended up with five walleye.  Best action was over the weeds in 10 FOW using inline boards with thundersticks 5 foot off the board.  Inline boards are a lot of work in pike country but they paid off on this trip.

Good Luck....

Houghton Lake 5/1/14

Ed & Joe Houghton Lake 
Houghton Lake 11 FOW North Shore

Had a great time fishing with Ed and Joe on Friday.  We started our trip at 10am on the North shore trolling in 8 to 12 FOW.  The bite got better as the sun came out and then shut down at at noon.  We moved west and stopped along the way to jig a few areas and never hooked a fish.  At 3:00pm we started trolling and ended on the South shore at 7:00pm where we found lots of pike and bass.  Overall we had a great time fishing and scouting the lake on a beautiful day.

Houghton Lake 4/29/15

Houghton Lake 

Fished Houghton Lake with the dogs on Wednesday from 9;30pm - to 1pm and had a great time.  We started out on the South shore and hooked three undersized walleye quickly  East of the boat launch in 8 FOW.  Right when the fishing got good the wind kicked in and pushed us back to the North side of the lake.  We ended up with four keepers, four undersized walleyes and a few pike in the mix.  Like opening day my best action was on natural colors.  Getting fish by moving and checking weed areas. 

Good Luck.....

Houghton Lake 2/28/15

Houghton Lake
Fishing Crew

Had a great time fishing on Houghton Lake.  We headed out of the South launch at noon and checked areas in 10 to 12 FOW as we headed north.  The fish didn't cooperate and we ended the day with zero fish.  We saw a few walleye today on the camera, but they weren't interested in eating.  

Good Luck...

Saginaw River 2/27/15

Saginaw River 17 FOW
Saginaw River Fishermen
Fished the Saginaw River on Friday.  Started out in Bay City at the Cass boat launch and fished till 11:30am only hooking one small walleye.  Marked lots of fish in 25 to 27 FOW, but no action.  Moved to Saginaw at noon and setup in 17 FOW and found lots of fish.  Fished six hours in Saginaw and saw hundreds of walleye on the camera moving through, but could not get them to bite.  Overall report hooked four fish with two keepers on my trip.  When the bite returns the river is going to be a lot of fun.

Good Luck....
