Houghton Lake Walleye Report 1/8 - 1/11

                                                                                    The walleye action on Houghton Lake was good over the weekend.  We made it out on Houghton three times over the weekend and caught walleyes on each trip.   We fished mainly on the North Shore in 9 FOW and out in middle of the lake in 11 FOW.  Overall we caught ten walleyes and five keepers.  Best action for us has been 11am - 3pm in 11 FOW.  Best bait has been the LINDY Darter 3/8 oz shad.  These baits rock and you don't need to tip them with live bait. They have great action and will save you from having to buy walleye minnows on each trip. 
We also fished Lake 13 in Farwell this weekend and did ok on bluegills and a few nice perch in 7 FOW on the North shore.  The lake is loaded with gills, but you really have to work to find the bigger fish.    I'm fishing the Saginaw River on Wednesday after work, so I'll have a report.
