Escanaba River bite SUCKED last night! All the recent rains have the water high and fast, and the temp has dropped to the mid 60's, (70+ works best for the crankbait fishing I've been doing.)

Time to switch over to perch, bass, and maybe kings, out in the big lake for a while.

All the recent rain has made it tough to get out on the water, but at least it seems to have pulled more eating sized walleyes into the Escanaba River. Of the dozen or so fish we caught last night, trolling shallow running crankbaits, we had seven that were 15 to 18 inches. Good eaters! Also caught smallmouth, rockbass, pike, and sheephead. Never know what you're going to catch in the Esky.

My dad and I managed to put together a one man limit of walleyes last night, casting and trolling shallow cranks in the Escanaba River. All cookie cutter 17 -18 inch fish. Perfect eaters.

Fished the Escanaba River last night with my buddy, Bruce. We were mainly looking to catch smallmouth, throwing shallow running crankbaits. The bass bite SUCKED! I think they're right in the middle of spawning, and have more important things on their little fishy brains. Luckily, the walleyes are well past that, and were willing to play a little bit. We ended up catching 10, and lost a few more. 4 of the fish were between 16 and 20 inches, so we both ended the night with enough fish for a meal.

Been hearing from folks fishing in the Escanaba River, (both from shore and from boats,) that they've been catching some nice perch. That usually means you can find good numbers around the river mouth.

Bite started a little slow for me, but things picked up as it got closer to sunset. Found decent numbers in 28 to 30 FOW. Caught 38 and kept 15. Lost two monsters right at the surface. When the sun hit the trees, the rockbass showed up and ate the last of my wigglers.

Made a couple trolling passes in the mouth of the river. Landed 5 walleyes - 1 keeper. Lost two more fish that would have been legal. All on Teeny and Mid-Sized Rebel Crayfish.

Overall, it was a good night in my book.

Fished off Gladstone harbor Sunday night, before and after dark, marked lots of fish but only tricked 4 northern and one 19 inch eye on cranks.  Anybody been having better luck and where abouts are the walleye at?
