Saginaw River Walleye Report 1-21-09


Fished the Saginaw River this afternoon from 3:30pm to 6:45 pm directly out in front of the Boy's Club in 16 FOW.
The walleye bite was slow and soft tonight, but I landed three keeper walleyes along with many dropped at the hole fish. I re-rigged my jigging setup last night to help detect the soft river walleye bite. My new setup is 6 pound test on a very sensitive with excellent backbone jigging rod. The river bite is lite and if you don't have a jigging method in place you will miss a ton of the light bites.
With the weather holding in the teens the river should be a great fishing location for the next two weeks. We will be fishing Houghton Lake on Friday afternoon and will report back. Good luck and be safe on the river.....
