Marquette: Fair action for lake trout and a few coho taken by those trolling in the Lower Harbor. Stannard Rock had fair lake trout action.

Au Train: Lake trout were caught north of the island and near the shipping channel.

Munising: Not many anglers but those going out have caught the occasional chinook and lake trout when trolling around Grand Island and Wood Island. Pier and dock fishing was slow with only a couple splake caught when still-fishing with natural baits or casting spoons and spinners.

Little Beaver Lake: In Alger County was producing walleye and northern pike.

Grand Marais: Had fair catches of small lake trout in the area near the shipping channel. Some whitefish were caught in the early morning hours however the bigger fish were caught at night on a single egg.

Keweenaw Bay: Those jigging for lake trout had fair action in 240 to 260 feet of water straight out from Big Louie's Point. The bite was slower for those trolling. Coho and a few brown trout were also caught near Gay Point. Those fishing near the South Portage Entry did well when trolling in 30 to 70 feet of water.

Black River Harbor: Fishing is slow close to shore as most fish are being caught in 200 to 300 feet of water. The river might be good in the early morning as fish can be seen feeding on minnows.

Ontonagon: Lake trout fishing was still good with most fish caught on the bottom in 100 feet of water. Walleye fishing is good for those trolling up the river.

Lake Gogebic: Walleye fishing continues to get better. During the day, anglers are trolling the middle of the lake with stick baits. Morning and evening anglers are fishing near the weed beds with jigs and minnows or crawlers.

Little Bay De Noc: The best walleye fishing was in 15 to 20 feet of water north of the Second Reef during the day and in waters less than 15 feet at night. Most fish were sub-legal however 15 to 18 inch fish were caught. Those fishing the southern water reported bigger fish but fewer fish were caught. Most are trolling crank baits or crawler harnesses in 10 to 25 feet of water.
