FISHING REPORT
7/7/14 8:51 AM CST
got out Saturday for a few hours. A little breezy! trolled along the shore from Henderson's south and got a big 24" sheephead. The wind was blowing right, so we drifted and casted spinnerbaits toward shore on our way back. Good decision on my part as on my third cast I hooked this beauty. Four good jumps including one at boatside! First time I've had a big one grab some air, so that was pretty cool.

FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Cloudy
I was up there Tuesday and Wednesday last week. Nothing but gobies while fishing along the shore past Hendersons with spinner rig/crawler and one sheep while trolling a stickbait. Wednesday was cool (to say the least) and windy, so we fished the shoreline near the boat launch and worked our way back into that little bay by squaw island casting spinner baits. Wound up with a few small pike and a few decent bass, including a surprise largemouth. A couple of our fish did come near docks.

Do the smallies hide under docks much

Smallmouth tips - I would say start shallow and work your way deeper until you find fish. Long casts. East side of Little Sturgeon is quite rocky. If you find the occasional weed even better. Use a slip bobber to suspend a leech or crawler off the bottom to keep away from gobies. Cast with dark senko wacky worms with no additional weight - working across bottom. Tube jigs worked along bottom, lighter jig heads avoid hangups. Try a top water or spinner bait to see if they are more active. Good luck!

I'm looking to get into smallmouth this weekend. We haven't' fished smallmouth up here much. Any tips to point us in the right direction?

We fished Little Sturg. on Sunday, from 0600 to just after noon. Weather turned out better than it looked like at first! We fished the shallows, we tried the channel down the middle, we went out in to the bay a bit. The screen showed fish, but they were hanging out at the bottom, and refused to bite anything. When we gave it up, a guy doing state surveys on shore told us that only two boats that day had brought any in. He was thinking the bite might pick back up in a couple days, though. Others we talked to said they had been skunked as well. Looks to be a great spot, though, so we'll be back!

How has the bass fishing been? Heading up next week for the 4th, would targeting shallow or deeper be better? Any tips?

We stayed at the Sand Beach Resort last fall. Nice place to stay and it is centrally located to the launches. Be sure to bring some Kalins grubs along!

Never fished this area before but always wanted to. It is on my bucket list but I am somewhat of an introvert and enjoy solitude almost as much as I enjoy catching smallies----almost! Anyway, wondering if there are any recommended places to stay in the area that cater a little more to the fisherman including a place to plug in the trolling motor battery?? Like I said, I have never been to the area at all. Still looking to catch that 6 pound smallie while I am here on this earth and thought I shouldn't overlook this area! It will just be my bride of 42 years as of June 24th and me. Thanks for any help.
