Great Weather, Great Fishing
A warm weekend with light and variable winds is ahead and a cool down to the mid 70’s the rest of the week.

Looks like it is going to be a great week to get out and do some fishing.  Check out the pictures of the week. Summer charter trips still available.  Contact us 800-862-8602.

The Scoop
Water temperature is bouncing around in the mid 70’s this week.  The best technique to reeling in walleyes has been mixed this week.  Some anglers are doing really well with hammered gold, white/silver and red crawler harness, 1-2 ounces of weight and tipping it with crawler in 16’-28’.  Other anglers are finding that trolling with crank baits is working the best 28’-31’ outside of Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach and the northern reefs in Big Traverse.  Our guides always want to give you the best experience but if you prefer one approach over another we are happy to accommodate. Charter trips include a guide aboard a 27’ Sport Craft boat with onboard restroom, use of poles, bait, tackle, assortment of pop and water and fish cleaning.  Shore lunches and box lunches available too.

Congratulations to the MTT tournament winners! The top bag was 5 fish weighing in over 36 pounds.
