Houghton Lake 9-19-08

Walleye fishing continues to be very good on Houghton Lake. It's been two weeks since my last trip, but the walleyes are still just as active as they were at the beginning of the month.

We trolled in 6.5 FOW with tail dancers running them back 45 and 52 foot. My father and I fished for three hours and boated seven walleyes the best one being 20-inches. On top of the walleye action we hooked a 38-inch or larger norther pike that broke off at the boat. The fishing conditions are changing and as the water temperature continues to drop we will be moving in closer to shore to fish our spring areas.
