Shore anglers at Quanicassee caught good numbers of perch on minnows although they were doing a lot of sorting. Northern pike were also caught in both areas.. At Sebewaing, the river was high and dirty after all the rain. At Geiger Road, perch were caught with minnows in 5 to 6 feet about 200 yards offshore. Off Bay Port, smallmouth bass and the occasional walleye were caught outside of North Island when casting artificial baits. The best baits are Flicker shads #7's 50 to 90 feet back off of offshore planner boards have been doing the most damage for good numbers of Walleye. Custom colors have been very good, purples and pinks.
