8/17/19, Saginaw Bay, Au Gres, Fishing Report
Good walleye fishing continues out of Au Gres with limits taken by my clients today from Kingsley, MI. In fact, my clients have limited out on walleyes here every day this month except for one day, which was a day that I recommended a weather cancellation, but my clients wanted to give it a try anyway. The fish have been moving around a lot and we are having to run a fairly long distance to get to the fish, but we are finding them in good numbers. We actually fished six different spots today before finding a good bite. Our fish today were mostly 15 to 23 inchers. I'm sticking with an all meat program pulling the spinners mostly close to bottom today, be we have also been catching them suspended on some days too. Trolling speeds have been 1.5 to 1.9 mph depending on depth and the mood of the fish. Today fire/tiger was best in the morning in the first couple spots, but where we really loaded up, they seemed to prefer red/silver/glow. We are filling up the last of the remaining open 2019 charter dates and are also taking reservations for 2020 now too.
