March Fishing Report

I haven't posted a report in a few weeks because I've been busy fishing every lake I can get on.

Houghton Lake Report:
We are still catching walleyes from 4pm - dark using jigging spoons tipped with minnows. Our best spot has been 1.2 miles north east on Layman's Bait shop in 10 FOW. We are consistently landing walleyes, perch, and a few nice crappies.

Pratt Lake Report:
Walleye fishing has picked up. They are feeding in shallow water 7 - 8 FOW right before dark. Using jigging spoons tipped with a minnow. I have been getting a few pan fish but I haven't found the big ones yet. I'll focus on them after walleye season closes on the 15th.

Budd Lake Report:
Pan fishing is on fire. Every tip we make we are limiting out on blue gills, perch, and nice crappy. We are targeting 19 FOW outside of any weed bed we can find. Work the South East end of the lake. Our last trip out we found the walleyes but couldn't get them out of the hole.

Long Lake Report:
Walleyes and crappy are being caught daily on the North end of the lake in 20 - 22 FOW.

Sugar Springs Report:
This like has more blue gills then you can haul in. I fished the Springs two weeks ago and picked up two walleyes, some bass, several pike, and some nice gills. Fish the West end of the like in 10 FOW.

I'll report back on Monday after this weekends fishing action. We will be on Pratt Lake Friday looking for a few big walleye.

Good Luck.
