Best overall walleye reports have been coming from the mouth of the Whitefish River, and the mouth of the Escanaba River. Crawlers have been the best live bait. Drifting with the current with just a plain hook and a split-shot has been good for some. Pitching jigs with a crawler has been good, too. Some are trolling small, shallow running crankbaits. Floating Rapalas, smaller Husky Jerks, and Jr. Thundersticks have all been working. The river waters are very dark and stained, so brighter color patterns like Firetiger and clown have been working well.
Best recent perch reports have been coming from the south side of Gladstone, from the water treatment plant to Saunder's Point, in 28 to 36 FOW. Perch rigs with wigglers have worked the best.
Lots of smallmouth bass are being caught at the mouth of the Ford River. Swimming or dragging tube jigs near the bottom has been catching a lot of fish. Catch and keep season on bass opens this Saturday, May 26th.
Good luck out there.
