Last weeks walleye fishing on Houghton Lake was excellent. We made it out several times last week and despite the massive mayfly hatches and all of the issues removing larva and chopped weeds from our lines we caught a lot of walleyes.
Wednesday (6-10): Fished in 6 FOW on the West end of the lake and caught eight keepers best on 22-inches and eleven undersized fish. Best bite was on black and silver Berkley Frenzies fished 25 foot back.
Thursday (6-11): Keith and Justin fished the South point in 5 to 6 FOW and boated five keepers and sixteen undersized fish in three hours. Best bite was on black and white TD 7 tail dancers 40 foot back 2.10 mph.
Friday (6-12): Fished the West end of the lake and boated ten keepers and three undersized fish trolling blue / white TD 5 tail dancers 55 foot back and Berkeley Frenzies 25 foot back. The mayfly hatch made trolling difficult, but it didn’t stop the walleye bite. Best fishing was from 9:30pm to 10:30pm.
Sunday (6-14): Fished the West end of the lake in 6 FOW and boated five keeper walleyes from 7:15am to 8:00am, then fishing shutdown. All fish were caught on blue / silver / red storm thunderstick Jrs. Trolled 19 foot back.
