Last Ice Fishing Trip

Spring is here to stay so that means this is my last ice fishing trip for the year. With all of the warm weather my thoughts have been turned to getting my boat ready for the early walleye action. In the next few weeks I’m going to be down jig for monster walleyes on the Detroit River and then I’ll head to the mouth of the Saginaw River to troll for walleyes.

Open Water Tonight

With open water fishing right around the corner and the nice weather were having I was driven to stop by the Sanford Dam on my way home from work and try out some of my new crank baits. I spent about four hours casting for walleyes without any luck, but it was sure nice to get out and fish on the river. I also found that the 3-inch Rapala x-rap has awesome flicker action when worked against the current. We will be adding this lure to or walleye crank bait collection and trying this year.

Good Luck..

Pratt Lake

Fished Pratt from 5:00pm - 7:30pm and ended up with 14 sunfish and no walleyes.  I did hook a nice bass on a tip up and lost a pike.   I spotted two walleye on my camera both in 10 FOW, but couldn't make get them to hit my bait. 

Pratt Lake Pan Fish

While I was scouting for walleyes I found a school of sunfish in 10 FOW on the South shore and ended up with 14 fish all caught on waxworms. 

2010 Spring Walleye Opener Just Around The Corner

2009 was a great open water fishing season for us on Houghton Lake.  We had great action on about every trip and most of the time we caught our limit.  With only two weeks left of winter walleye fishing were gearing up for the 2010 April opener.  Early on we will be focused on fishing in 5 to 6 FOW on both the north and south shores.  You have to love the walleyes on Houghton Lake.  Good Luck...
