Hi There Fellow Fisherman, Captain Andy here with this week’s Fishing Report.
Fall is here and the fishing is picking up once again. The weather gods have been making it tough to get out on the bay but the days you could get out have been good for most anglers. The perch are biting in 6-12 feet of water in and around the weed beds as well as a few reports starting to trickle in from some of the cuts and marinas in our area. As the temps fall the fishing will continue to get better.
Walleye action is starting to take off in the river and I have heard a few stories from out on the bay in 12-15 feet of water. This time of the year our custom color husky jerks are the ticket for a limit of trophy walleye but in the river jig heads tipped with a minnow or your favorite soft plastics work as well.
If you haven’t heard already, the limit on walleye and perch out on the Saginaw Bay and the Saginaw River (up to Hess avenue bridge) has changed. 8 walleye is now the daily possession limit with 13” being the minimum size and the daily possession limit on yellow perch is 25 so be aware of the new rules that are in effect.
Most of our ice shanties are out on display and new merchandise is arriving daily so get ready early for the upcoming ice fishing season. Plan to layaway your shanty early and take advantage of our pre-season deals while you can.
