Here's the latest fishing report from our friends along the shoreline:
Lisa Valentine at Lindy Sales and Service in Quanicasse said Lance Valentine reported that 25 keeper walleye, a big Pike and huge catfish...pulled flicker shad in 11-15 feet of water off Linwood. Most fish came with the lures 50' back around 2 mph. The spoon bite is in full swing out of Linwood in 26 feet of water.
Captain Mike Morgan at M & D Marine and Sand Piper Charters in Port Austin says the winds and waves were up, and you make have to troll and to find them. But for Lake Trout start trying 30 degrees out of Port Austin in 100 to 140 feet of water using dipsey divers with small chrome dodgers and spin and glows on the bottom 5 to 10 feet off the bottom, or lime green spoons higher up. Start in the shallower water and work out into deeper water until you find them. Anglers can also try 3, 5 and 10 color lead lines with spoons, along with dipsey divers with small dodgers and flies or spin and glow set 250 to 300 feet back. Mike says walleye action has slowed down in 30 to 40 feet of water from 4 miles west of Port Austin to Grindstone, trolling with crawler harnesses, body baits and Silver Streak junior spoons of various colors.
Harbor Beach Municipal Marina and Janice Deaton for J-Lynn Charters in Harbor Beach said Lake Trout have been taken straight out and North of the harbor in 120-130 foot of water. Dodgers with spin and glows and fly's have been working well close to the bottom. Green, yellow, pink, and white with pink dots have been good colors. Try for some Steelhead out around the color lines using bright colored spoons off the 2,5,7, and 10 colored lead lines. Some Walleye continue to be taken in closer to shore using crawler harnesses, worm burners, thunder sticks and Hot and Tots. The perch and purple colors are working well. Try the 25 to 40 foot areas North of the harbor. Keep those lines tight,
