Fishing Reports


Little Bay De Noc:

Walleye action picked up for those trolling or jigging in 14 to 30 feet along the reefs. There are still a lot of undersize fish in the area. The best catches were near the “Fingers,” Minneapolis Shoals in 18 to 26 feet or near Round Island in 10 feet when trolling crawlers and stick baits. Fair perch catches near the Second Reef with crawlers in 10 to 14 feet and off Gladstone Beach in 18 feet. Pike were caught throughout with the best catches taken near Kipling along Butler Island, near the coal docks and between the mouth of the Escanaba River and the Municipal docks with spinners and crank baits. Smallmouth bass slowed; however the better catches were up near Garth Point and along the banks of the rivers when using plastics. Salmon anglers were having a tough year, but some were still trying. Salmon along with baitfish were marked just north of the Ford River Buoy in 50 feet, but no fish were caught.

Big Bay De Noc: Bass fishing picked up.

Manistique: Salmon anglers reported very few catches. Many are starting to check the staging areas north of the Buoy and closer to the launch. Northern pike anglers reported excellent catches near the mouth of the river when trolling spinners or crank baits along the breakwalls. Shore anglers casting crank baits were also taking fish.

Manistique River: The walleye action slowed; however a few fish could still be found up near the Paper Mill when casting jigs with a crawler. There were reports of a Chinook salmon caught in the river, so the early stages of the run are beginning.
