Fishing in and around the Alpena area remains consistent and not much has changed when talking about the report or tactics.
Traditional fall casting techniques have been producing multiple limit days over the past two weeks on Hubbard Lake for Walleye. While trolling is a proven tactic for targeting Walleye on Hubbard, casting allows you to maximize your efficiency once you have schools of fish located. Targeting primary depths of 13’-22’ spots seem to be holding true while preferred depths very day to day.
Looking forward to the bite holding up until ice on.
Smallmouth bass were caught when casting Ned rigs, jigs, or crank baits in Squaw Bay. Looking/finding for areas with warm water and bait fish is the key to success.
When fishing out of Alpena on Lake Huron walleye and steelhead were being caught when trolling dreamweaver spoons and body baits in 40 to 80 feet. The colors that have been working the best are green, blue, and silver.
Walleye were also caught in deeper water off Thunder Bay Island. Walleye are being picked up by those trolling spoons and body baits in 15 to 45 feet off North Point and Sulphur Island also.
