5/27/18, Saginaw Bay, Au Gres, Fishing Report
My clients today from Northville, MI enjoyed a near perfect day of fishing on the Bay taking limit catches of nice walleyes. We had a rain storm come through just before we were scheduled to depart, but after that the skies cleared up and the gentle breeze provided a nice "walleye chop". We caught fish of varied sizes with the biggest being almost 25". The hot setup today was a fire/tiger spinner rig fished about 10' off bottom in somewhat deep water. We also caught some fish on bottom too, but couldn't get the really high going despite marking fish in the top 10 feet. My trolling speed was kept close to 1.6 mph, which was the fasted I could get them to bite at. If I slowed down to less than that, then white perch pestered the lures more taking them out of commission. We had a happy seven year old boy on the boat today and he got to catch a lot of fish including the biggest one of the day too. These walleyes charters are perfect for kids as we get lots of action and the fish put up enough fight to make it fun, but not so much that kids can't handle them like salmon. Kids have a lot of fun for sure.
