Houghton Lake Walleye Report 7/6

Monday evening’s strong NW wind and gray sky didn’t slow the walleye action on Houghton Lake. Fished off of the North shore about one mile out in 5 to 6 FOW where we found a school of walleyes feeding on minnows. We started fishing at 7:45pm and had our three man limit at 10:20pm. The hot lure was the Berkley Frenzy Minnow in black / silver trolled back 25 feet and troll speeds ranged from 2 to 2.9 mph. Overall we boated 12 undersized walleyes, 15 keeper walleye (kept 10) with the largest fish being 19-inches and two bass.
Talked to a fishermen at the launch and he reported that he has been limiting out in 9 FOW in East Bay drifting with floating jig heads tipped with leaches.

Good Luck….
