Houghton Lake Fishing Report 6/11 - 6/14

Jim's Monster 11-inch Sunfish.  Hooked on the North Shore.
Hothuntingspots,

Thank you for the tips on fishing Houghton Lake. Although the winds were high all week we made the best of it.

The Mayflies were out in force so we switch to fly's in 3 ft of water at night and we caught 7 keepers in about 90 minutes. Tuesday we went after bass and slammed them! Fished in 12 ft of water off the North shore twitching crawlers in the pockets of weeds. We boated 23 (15 smallies) with every one of them over 14 inches. The biggest was a 19 in Smally. Most of them were 16-17 inches. We ended the 3 1/2 days with 32 Walleye 17 of them keepers.

Attached is a picture of the 11 inch Sunfish Jim caught.

Have a nice day,

Mike Bennett
