Fishing Report

Little Bay De Noc: Had walleye and smallmouth bass anglers. The best walleye catches were at night in 18 to 40 feet when trolling stick baits from the Gladstone Bay area south to the Escanaba lighthouse. The better bass catches were from the “Black Bottom” to Farmers Dock with plastics or minnows in 15 to 30 feet.

Big Bay De Noc: Had smallmouth bass anglers fishing a little more south from Sand Bay to the Burnt Bluff area. Catch rates were good with minnows in 12 to 25 feet.

Lac Vieux Desert: Anglers have caught even more musky. The fish ranged 30 to 47 inches and were caught on suckers. Walleye fishing picked up and anglers caught good numbers however the majority were 10 to 15 inches. Minnows were the ticket. Very few panfish were caught.

Keweenaw Bay: Those trolling in shallow waters had nice catches of coho, brown trout and splake.
