Houghton Lake 7-19-08

The walleye fishing fun never ends on beautiful Houghton Lake and Saturday morning was about as good as it gets. We started trolling at 7:00am and had our four person walleye limit by 1:00pm.
We fished in 6 FOW most of the morning and then found a very hot spot in 4.8 FOW that added the last six fish to our limit. Overall we landed 46 walleyes, 12 pike, and 15 bass.
Trolling Houghton can be extremely difficult do to the weed cover, but if you use your GPS and map out slots you can really have fun. We are trolling with 8lb line, trail dancers, thunderstick of varying color and running at 2.25 to 2.60 mph.
Good luck.
