Saginaw River 3/1/13

Mark with his first Saginaw River Walleye of 2013

Slick jig walleye
Mark and I fished Saginaw River from 2pm - 6:50pm out of the Independence Bridge Launch.  We setup in 24 FOW along side of the ship docking area.  Lots of fishermen setup in the shipping channel fishing in 27 to 31 FOW.  We marked lots of fish all day from bottom to two foot off bottom.  The best bite was on a slow approach with whole minnows and a slick jig.  We hooked six keeper fish all 15 to 15.5 inches and lots of undersized fish.  The best bite today was from 5:50pm to 6:20pm. 
Good Luck.....
