Houghton Lake Walleye Report 8/22

It's getting to be the time of the year when we start gearing up for our western hunts and fishing gets put on the back burner for a month. The good news is that fishing is getting better if you have the time to do it. We made it out on Saturday afternoon and despite the bad weather we ended up with 8 keeper walleyes and caught a nice 35 inch pike that we sent back. Fished in 6 to 7 FOW to start, but had our best action in 9 FOW trolling at 2.3 mph on trout colors.
Good luck..

Houghton Lake Walleye Report 8/7

Fished Houghton on Friday evening and ended up with 12 keeper walleyes. We started out fishing in 6 FOW on the north shore where we only picked up two undersized fish and a lot of pike. After working the North shore we moved over to the West end of the lake and targeted 4 - 6 FOW. Trolling was hit and miss with a few small fish. The action picked up at dark and the bite was very good until 10:30pm.

Best action was on Blue / Silver and Black / Gold.

Good luck.

The big lake bite was pretty slow on Thursday we went out of Frankfort and ended up going 2 for 3 on nice adult kings. Both that we landed were 12 lbs. Pretty slow overall up there one guy had 4 in the cleaning station and his were all 2-4lbers. Other than that it was 1 or 2 fish for most guys. I hope to get out later this week probably big lake on Friday if this weather will calm down....

Houghton Lake Walleye Report 8/1

Made it out fishing on Saturday morning with a new Houghton Lake walleye friend (Jim) and ended up with six keepers and eight undersized fish. We fished the first part of the morning in 4 to 6 FOW and had good action. At 10:00am we moved over to the North Shore and picked up one undersized walleye and lost a good fish at the boat. The wind didn't cooperated and the North shore was to ruff to troll by 11:00am.

Other fishing team members did very well this weekend and between the two boats they ended up with 57 walleyes in three days.

We will be out during the week.
