Houghton Lake Area Fishing Report

June 26th, 2018

Fishing has been amazing this year so far...especially the walleye and bass. Limits and 20"+ eyes have been common. Some anglers have been trolling Fish Bones, Flicker Shads and Hot n Tot crank baits. Crawler and leech harnesses are working too. The best colors have been purple, pink, hot tiger and green. Work the edges of the large weed beds in 9' to 14' fow. For bass, use tube jigs, wacky worm rigs, spinner baits and top water frogs..find them under docks and out next to the big weed beds. Pike are everywhere...use anything that spins and is shiny. Crappie are more difficult to find...fish them in the deeper waters (10') along the weed lines. Blue gill are finally starting to hit again. Some guys are finding them on the sandy flats in about 4-6 fow, others are getting them in 8' - 10' depths fishing about 6' below a bobber.
