2008 Upper Peninsula Walleye Fishing Trip

Our fishing team headed up to Curtis, Michigan on May 19th for a week of walleye fishing on Big Manistique Lake and one day of fishing Autrain Lake.

The weather was colder then normal and the North wind never stopped blowing. Water temps were below normal and ranged from 50 - 54 degrees F everyday. All fishing methods produced fish, but the bite was slow. Best walleye of the week was 25 1/2 inches caught on a blue and silver tail dancer trolled back 55 feet on 8 pound. Total trip we landed 39 walleyes and 4 small mouth 3 lbs +. We had very our best success with blue and silver tail dancers and bomber. The other hot color was brown / red on Storm Jr. Thundersticks.

As always we had a great week fishing Big Manistique and our stay at the Buck Horn Resort was great.
