Houghton Lake Walleye Report 7/13

Monday evening fishing was a great time despite the strong NW wind. We headed out to 12 FOW NE of long point and trolled East for an hour before we picked up our first walleye. We didn’t find many suspended fish in 12FOW, so we headed South into 13 FOW. The wind made trolling into the wind very hard and limited our ability to stay on the fish. Closer to dark we hit a school of fish and we ended up boating six keeper walleye and five undersized fish all in about fifteen minutes.

Overall the deeper water produced fish, but not at the rate we are catching them in 7 FOW on the West Shore. Best bait was the Rapala Taildancer TD 7 Green / White trolled back 52 foot.

Good Luck.
