Southeast Lower Peninsula
Lake Erie: Was stirred up after the strong winds but is still producing a few walleye for those fishing at night. As for perch, anglers are still getting a few keepers around Turtle Island, the Dumping Ground and near the Raisin River. Catch rates should improve once the waters clear up.
Detroit River: Perch anglers are still taking some fish including some up near 10 inches. Muskie anglers will want to target the weed beds along the shoreline when casting or jigging with large baits.
Lake St. Clair: Gusty winds have not only stirred up the lake but also have slowed fishing activity. It’s that time of year when fewer anglers head out, but there is still some good bass, walleye, muskie and perch fishing to be had if weather conditions allow. For muskie, target the weed beds in Anchor Bay. Perch anglers should find some fish moving into shallower waters once the lake clears up.
St. Clair River: The water was turbid. Walleye anglers should try jigging minnows in the Lower Delta Channels when the water clears up. Muskie anglers will target the weed beds along the edge of the channels.
Harbor Beach: The docks were still in at the boat launch. Those fishing off the north breakwall could find some walleye when casting spoons or rapalas throughout the night.
Saginaw Bay: Windy conditions have kept anglers off the Bay. When they can get out, they will be targeting perch. Look for pike and panfish in the marinas.
Saginaw River: Boat and shore anglers are trying for walleye. The better action was in the lower section. Boat anglers were vertical jigging with minnows. Be sure to watch for tagged fish.
