FISHING REPORT
10/26/14 11:25 PM CST
Conditions: Night Time Air Temp: 41° - 45° F Water Temp: 46° - 50° F
We fished Friday 9pm-4am all shallow in 6' to 15' of water. Caught 5 w/ 27" the biggest. Saturday we started about 5:30 fishing deep cranks for about 4 hrs. w/ no luck, then switched to shallow cranks until 2am only picking up 1-24". Water temp is 48 degrees and there are LOTS of weeds shallow. Most people I talked to that were having some luck were fishing deep and during the day on cranks. They were also picking up Small mouth on Big Bay in the am. and Walleyes on LBDN in the afternoon on Red tails deep. It was nice to get out but I think the best is coming. I will try it again in a couple of weeks when there is a little more moon out!!

FISHING REPORT

Blue Gill Surfer - Not many walleye reports, lately. Locals are all out hunting, and most of the out-of-town guys we're seeing are mainly chasing bass, (see my report, below.)

My dad has been slamming the smallmouth for the last couple weeks, and it's been driving me nuts not being able to go. Earlier this week, the right combination of nice weather and no doctors appointments finally allowed me to get out for some "on the water therapy."

We had a good time Lindy rigging suckers along the east bank, near Escanaba. We ended up landing 8 fish, and lost 9 more. No monsters over 20 inches, but most were in the 17 to 19 inch range. On our last drift, we doubled up on a 17 and a 19. Sun was at the trees, and it was getting colder by the minute, so that seemed like a good note to end the trip on. Can't wait to get out again!

Talked to some guys at the shop that said they have been doing really good over on Big Bay, too. Water temps are right at 50 degrees, so the bite should last for another couple weeks, as long as there's not a major change in the weather.

Get out and enjoy it if you can.

thoseyes - thanks for the concern. I had a recent cancer diagnosis, and just had surgery to remove it. So far, so good, but I still have a long way to go in my recovery. I'll be able to start spending a little time at the shop, soon. Hopefully I'll be back at it full time this winter. Only time will tell.

mbonen - contact Pine Creek Outfitters http://pinecreek.webs.com/ for your sleeper shack needs. He has generators available with his sleeper shacks. He books up quick in the winter, so call early.

On a side note, my dad also uses a CPAP machine. He is able to hook his up to a standard deep cycle battery, and uses it anywhere he goes, even out on camping trips.

Hello All, This is not a report but rather trying to get some information for a ice fishing trip in jan of 2015. I've been trying Google but really haven't found what I am looking for. Does anyone know of anyone who rents out sleeper shacks that either have electricity or is able to be hooked up to a generator. There will be two going who have cpap machines so that is our only hold back. If that doesn't exist, what bout lodging by the lake with fishing shacks? Please PM. And sorry for clouding up the fishing reports.

Thank you all.

Walleye Patrol - I would get in contact with a guy named Scott Cormier. He works at Hilltop RV so you can google the number and ask for him. He always has a pulse on whats going on and would likely help or even guide you if you were looking for that. If I had to bet on it, its highly likely that he was retained for prefishing and locations by one of the top 5 finishers in this past weekend's bassmasters elite series championship held out of Escanaba. Hes that good.

JeepGuy, If you're targeting walleye... Alewife are in... makes for tougher walleye fishing because they have so much food. I fish mostly the lower bay and south of LBDN, so I'm not sure how the fishing is in the upper bay. There are still fish to be caught and nice days to enjoy on the water, but noone I have been talking to has been slaying the fish. Maybe you're not targeting 'eyes??? I don't fish for anything else, so I can't help you with any other reports. Either way, good luck!
