Houghton Lake Walleye Report 5/10/11

Ed with the first walleye of the trip
 Fished the South Shore of Houghton Lake yesterday from 6:45pm -10:15pm.  We hooked eight walleyes in the 13 to 14 inch range and two keepers.  The SE wind kept us contained along the South Shore, so we made the best of the situation and fished from the DNR launch to Lyman's in 4 to 9 FOW.  Fishing action was slow for the most part and the walleye bite was concentrated in two locations both of which were small weed structures in 7 FOW.  We caught fish on TD 05 taildancers trolled back 50 foot, Berkley Flicker Shade back 25 foot and Berkley Frenzy Minnows 23 foot back all trolled from 1.9 to 2.3 mph.   The water temp is on the rise and up 2 degrees from Saturday afternoon to 57 F.  

Good Luck...
