Escanaba Area Fishing Report

May 8th, 2019

Walleye season is just a week away and the fisherman are chomping at the bit. This season should be better than expected as there were quite a good bunch of walleye during the late fall bite. Bait has been around the bay's and area's south and that is what we all need for a good early bite. The catch and release smallmouth bass season is going to be awesome! If you have never fished the bays for these brutes you are missing one of the top fisheries in the world. We'll be back next week with a report and pictures from the walleye opener.
Little Bay De Noc: Perch anglers reported fair to good catches along the north end. The best area was between the Day’s River and the Third Reef in 23 to 32 feet with crawler and wigglers. In the Ford and Day’s River, steelhead fishing was fair as there are a lot of suckers in the rivers right now. Water levels were still up and running a bit fast. Good smallmouth action for shore anglers casting plastics and crank baits near the mouth of the Ford River. Boat anglers were fishing the rocky areas near the mouth.
