Houghton Lake Fishing Report 6/17/11

North Shore Walleye 11 FOW

North Shore 12.5 FOW

East Bay undersize walleye

South Shore Sunfish
Had lots of fun fishing Houghton Lake today.  Mark and I started our morning out trolling in 8 FOW on the West shore and quickly realized that the chopped up floating weeds that covered the lake were going to make trolling very difficult.  We packed up our trolling gear at 8am and made the best of a bad weed day by doing some traveling around the lake jigging and bobber fishing.  The best action was on the North shore in 12 FOW jigging around the weed clumps.  We used gold jig heads tipped with Gulp, plastic, and leaches.  Overall we hooked 7 walleyes and lots of pan fish.  If your heading to Houghton this weekend the water is holding at 70 F and you will find lots of dead mayflies and weeds on the surface.

Good Luck...
