Indian River Area Fishing Report

October 1st, 2019

Fishing in the Indian river area especially on Burt Lake is really starting to heat up. If you are a perch fisherman using slip bobbers on weed edges and over submerged weed beds is the key right now as these fish are slowly starting to make their way to the wintering grounds. Fishing 8-13 feet with leaf worms or minnows under those floats has been the most productive. If vertical fishing is more of what you want to do you can do that also with a crappie rig/bead rig tipped with minnows.
Walleye are starting to feed as Fall enters northern Michigan as well. Fishing vertical presentations over flats this time of year can produce big fish and good numbers of walleye on Burt Lake. Trolling stick baits behind tadpoles or even leadcores using offshore Tackle boards to make a bigger spread can be very effective on those same flats. 20-30 feet of water has been and will be the best as we have now entered the Fall season.
