We had an opportunity to get out fishing on Houghton Lake last night (5/18). The fishing was a bit slow on the north shore, but we managed to catch one keeper and 7 undersized walleye. After spending 2-hours on the north shore we headed over to the South shore and trolled along the shore by the Heights Marina until 9:30pm. The action was also slow but we had a good bite right at dark and picked up two keepers and five undersized fish. Water temperatures are still all over the place making fishing difficult on HL. I found 57 degree water on the North shore and 63.5 degree water on the South West shore last night, hopefully the weather conditions will stabilize soon.
I added two pictures the view of the Crawford County fire from Houghton Lake.
