Bottom Bouncers, draggin’ 8 oz “Heavy Metal”
17 July 2009, 9:44 am

As the walleyes will undoubtedly be heading to deeper water with the weather warming up at some point, I started thinking about heavy bottom bouncers again. I always wanted something heavier than the 4 ozers I drop off the side of the boat when running crawler harnesses.  In deeper water, they tend...

DB Fishing Blades:  went shopping
17 July 2009, 2:02 pm

After the success of last Sunday’s fishing trip I called back up to DB Fishing and placed another order for the blades that were hot, and a couple more to try out.    The Whiptail blades are only 90 cents, and when you order more than 10 colorado blades  the price drops to 80 cents a piec...

Perch Rigs: Make Your Own
20 July 2009, 11:46 am

Last year I shared on how to make your own perch rigs by taking three lengths of 20 lb test monofilament and tying two double uni knots.  And either last year or the year before about converting spoons to make your own “hybrid” rigs with a length of leader line attached to a hook.  Thi...

Fishing Michigan: Perch Rigs, Here’s a thought

Perch Rigs,  Here’s a thought
22 July 2009, 4:15 pm

Ok, I had a thought on how to perhaps make the standard perch/crappie rig a bit more effect.  Of course it occured to me after I had ordered the bigger four inch hook lears from Jann’s Netcraft and had tied up four rigs with the 2.5 inch lears.

To the point, why not combine the two sizes whi...

Michigan DNR Fishing Report for July 23rd
23 July 2009, 7:06 am

Boats are trolling for trout and salmon on the Great Lakes but the fish were scattered. Inland fishing has been good for large and smallmouth bass, bluegills, and crappie. Look for post spawn fish to be out in deeper waters. With the cooler than normal summer we have had so far, anglers might have t...

Fish ID page from the MI DNR

Not sure what you are catching?  The DNR has a webpage available with pics of most of the species that can be found in Michigan waters.

You can also click on each name by the fish to find out how to catch that specific species, here is an example:

8 before 8: Lake Erie Report, July 24th
24 July 2009, 6:45 pm

Just a quick report before I head out to start cleaning fish.  Head straight out of the state park this morning until hitting 23 foot of water, started heading east until hitting 26 fow and going back for another pass.  During that first pass we had 8 walleye in the box before 8 am.

Keeping your crawlers cool
28 July 2009, 11:10 am

What’s one of the worse things to happen to  an angler after a long day of fishing?  Opening up that container of crawlers under a hot sun only to find a gooey stinking mess is one thing that would be near the top of my list.  There are options available though, some cheaper than others.

Pike Lures: Search and Destroy
29 July 2009, 12:25 pm

I love pike fishing, give me a toothy critter slashing at bait in clear water so I can see all the action first hand.  It gets your heart pumping to see the roll of a white belly or the turbulence on the lake’s surface.  Rearing back on the hook set and feeling the weight of the fish at the ...

Strong winds continue to hamper those fishing not only the Great Lakes but also the large inland lakes. Warmer weather will certainly help catch rates. Watch for bluegills on the beds as some fish are actually spawning again.

What’s better than getting all three guys in the boat their Michigan limit of five fish each?  Slipping over the Ohio line and getting your extra fish per OH regulations of course.  We no sooner went over the line, in 15 min picked up our last three fish to wrap up a great day on the water.
