Houghton Lake Walleye Report 5-5-10
Last nights fishing report was not so hot. We started out fishing on the West shore in 7 FOW focusing on the break areas. The wind was bad and at times we were drifting at 2.4 mph which made for fast fishing. We fished hard and covered a lot of areas, but the net result was one small walleye after two hours of fishing. With the jig bite slowing we changed gears and moved to the South shore to troll and get a break from the wind. The slow bite continued on the South shore and after much effort we called it a night at 11:45pm. Overall we caught six walleyes one of which was a keeper and one nice 13.25-inch crappy. I had a great time and I learned a bit about rip-jigging, which I will use a lot on my trip to Forest Lake this summer.
I’ll be out Friday morning and if the weather holds I’ll be on the North Shore looking for walleyes.
