Saginaw bay walleye is always a topic but most times during January we are thinking ice fishing but this week keep those boats in or give Captain Jay a call because there is open water and fish to be had.
Fishing was good last week for a couple days on the bay when we could get out. I made it out Friday and we pulled a two-man limit in three hours. Big body baits like husky jerks, p-10s, and reef runners have produced fish. But when slow trolling these big baits don't be scared to mix in some flicker minnows and flicker shads into the spread. Greens, purples, pinks, and anything with an orange belly has been producing fish. But since Friday it’s been too windy and cold since then. With the temps coming I think the Marina’s and lunches are going to ice up just enough that we can’t get out. So before making the drive to one of the launches call and check before making the trip to Saginaw bay.
The river is still high and muddy there are some fish being caught but nothing to get too exciting to report about.
