Fished the Saginaw River on Friday. Started out in Bay City at the Cass boat launch and fished till 11:30am only hooking one small walleye. Marked lots of fish in 25 to 27 FOW, but no action. Moved to Saginaw at noon and setup in 17 FOW and found lots of fish. Fished six hours in Saginaw and saw hundreds of walleye on the camera moving through, but could not get them to bite. Overall report hooked four fish with two keepers on my trip. When the bite returns the river is going to be a lot of fun.
Went out on a morning trip to Houghton Lake on Friday the 13th. Started out at 7:30am from the west launch and headed out into 12 FOW to scout around for a new fishing spot. After three hours of looking around I found a promising area in the weeds. The wind and weather got bad around 1pm and the bite slowed up. I fished until 4pm and called it a day after the bite came to a complete stop. I did not hook a walleye on my morning trip, but the time spent scouting out new areas will pay off when the weather improves.
Saturday afternoon we fished the West shore from 2pm -6:30pm in 10 FOW. The bite was very good from 3pm to 4pm and then it dropped off. The perch in the area kept our tip up flags up and kept us busy resetting. Overall we caught one keeper walleye, a perch, and a few throw backs. Had a fun time fishing and having dinner on the lake.
