Alpena Michigan area fishing report for Lake Huron and Thunder Bay

Alpena Area

August 3rd 2018 


Open Water Season is now ON FIRE!!!  Lets go trolling!!!

Alpena has some of the most consistent action in the state, get in on some World-Class fishing action!!! 


Lake Huron- Thunder Bay has been decent for some catches of walleye this week. The action has been spotty.  Trolling is producing good numbers of fish. A great mixed bag of Atlantic Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead have been caught recently. Trolling the shorelines with a mixture of spoons and Rapalas seems to produce the best results. Limits of Lake Trout are easily taken out in 60-100 feet of water. Spoons have been the best choice on coppers, riggers, and divers.

Hubbard Lake-   Walleye have been starting to suspend out in deeper water. Decent catches are common when trolling crankbaits below the thermocline. Hot-n-Tots, Rapala Shad Raps, Deep Little Rippers are some of the popular baits. These fish can be very picky and you have to try many different baits and colors until the right combination is found that they want. 

Rockport-  Limit catches of Lake Trout have been taken consistently when targeting them. Many Atlantic Salmon and a few King Salmon are also showing up. Try targeting 50-100 feet of water and use a mixture of weighted lines, divers, and downriggers. Spoons are hard to beat for mixed bag catches from now till fall. 


Good Luck and Tight Lines.
