Walleye Fishing Remains Steady on the North End!

Walleye fishing remains steady on the rocks along the north end of the Big Traverse. Nice walleyes have been located in 8’ to 11’ of water on top of shallow rock piles and rocky windblown shoreline areas. Deeper rock structure also has its share of nice walleyes, most of the active fish have been located on the top of rock.

Pulling spinners over the top of the shallow rock with crawlers and leeches has been very productive. A wide variety of colors have been working, gold and orange are good starters. A jig and minnow is a good alternative in 1/4 to 3/8 ounce, vertically jigged over top of the rock structure. Gold, orange, and chartreuse are always good.

Great Multi-Species Action in the Islands!

Walleye fishing has remained steady in the Angle, good numbers of quality fish are being caught on rock piles that top out in the 22’ to 26’ range. Smallmouth and musky fishing has remained good as well, shallow rock and weed-covered bays have been holding good numbers of both. Perch are slowly showing up on some of the deeper rock structure, they have been hard to come by in good numbers early this summer but are now being caught with some consistency.

Jig a minnow, leech, or bit of a crawler for walleyes and perch. Try a 3/8 0z for the deeper rock piles and as small as 1/8 0z for the shallower structure and perch. Color usually varies but gold, chartreuse, and orange are good starters. Give a bobby bait style lure a shot for musky fishing, a suick for starters. Plastic worms and spinner baits pitched along shallow rip rap and rock covered shoreline areas for smallmouth.
