Gone fishin’

• Marquette: Limits or near limits of lake trout were caught between the white rocks and little Presque Isle. The occasional coho was caught near the white rocks. Those fishing near Granite Island had mixed results and the fishing at Shot Point has slowed. No salmon were caught in the rivers yet.

• Au Train: Lake trout fishing was best within 3 miles of Au Train Island however no big numbers were caught. There were no reports of salmon in the rivers.

• Munising: The weather was not favorable but a few boat anglers that managed to get out did catch some quality size lake trout near Wood Island and Reef and off Big Reef. The coho bite was slow and there was no splake action at the Anna River dock.

• Grand Marais: When the winds were favorable for fishing, a few boat anglers did well for coho. Lake trout anglers continue to do well with limit catches reported near Au Sable Point and straight out near the shipping lanes. No activity for pier anglers or shore anglers.

• Tahquamenon River: Overall fishing was slow. There were no reports of musky or pike caught. Those fishing the Dollarville Dam and pier managed to catch small rock bass, bluegills, pumpkinseed and the odd bass with wax worms and crawlers. A couple boat anglers managed to catch some perch on a worm. The East Branch had very good brook trout fishing.

• Lake Gogebic: Anglers had moderate success with walleye and perch picked up sporadically by those using live bait with a slip bobber over the weed beds in 8 to 12 feet. Those trolling crawler harnesses and crank baits in deeper water caught more fish. A couple legal size pike were caught right along with many sub-legals. Some nice panfish and the odd walleye were caught on the north end with live bait. Smallmouth bass can be found along the rocky areas and off the points. Some nice rock bass 10 to 12 inches were caught along the south end.

• Little Bay De Noc: Walleye anglers reported spotty catches of legal fish in the northern part of the Bay. The better catches were reported in the “Black Bottom” area when trolling a crawler harness but the best walleye catches were coming from Green Bay waters when using stick baits or crawlers in 10 to 18 feet near Round Island which is about 2 miles south of the Ford River. A good number of smallmouth bass were reported in the same area. Good walleye catches were reported out near Seagull Point when trolling crank baits in 20 to 25 feet. No limit catches but all the boats interviewed had fish.
