Anglers were reported to have caught a good number of snook in the “Narrows.” Other highlights include good catches of Lake trout and Perch in Hessel and Walleye in Saginaw Bay.

Anglers reported good catches of snook in the “Narrows”
Fishing for mulloway has been excellent, and anglers are reporting good catches near Mosman Bay, Claremont and the old brewery site. Flounder and large whiting are also being caught at the Stirling Bridge and along the Point Walter spit. Anglers are also reporting good catches of mulloway in Blackwall Reach.
In August, anglers in the “Narrows” reported good catches of snook and mulloway on the curlytail fly. The area was steep on one side and sloped toward the open ocean on the other. This area is best fished on a strong falling tide.
Anglers also reported good catches of tailor off the Mandurah beach and “King George” whiting from the front of Safety Bay. Anglers have also reported catching mulloway on the sands south of the town.
In addition to mullet, redfish and jacks are also abundant in Gulf Harbors. The best bait for catching these fish are live shrimp or free-line bait. Flounder can be caught using artificial lures and mud minnows. Anglers also report catching snook in the “Narrows,” near Holmes Beach canals. Flounder are also abundant in the backwaters, especially in the grassy areas along the Intracoastal Waterway.

Walleye fishing in Saginaw Bay
Walleye fishing in Saginaw Bay has increased significantly in recent years, thanks in large part to recreational fishing. Until the early 1970s, the fishery was being overfished, and the population was barely reproducing. While there has been some controversy over allowing commercial fishing, the recreational anglers are largely responsible for the increase in walleye numbers. The money collected from recreational fishing licenses helps to fund stocking efforts.
Saginaw Bay is home to a great walleye fishing bite, particularly during the spring. Crankbaits fished at 1.2 to 1.8 mph are the best options for catching limit-sized walleye. If you are going to fish in this area, consider renting a boat and hiring a local captain. They will know the best spots to target.
Walleye are plentiful throughout the year, but their best times to be caught is during their spawning runs. These runs generally take place in April and May. During this period, you can catch up to 40 pounds of walleye. Jigging, trolling, and casting are some of the best techniques for catching these fish.
However, if you are interested in walleye fishing, you may not want to wait until spring to get started. You can now fish in Saginaw Bay year-round, but be prepared to have fewer bites than you’d like. It’s important to know that the regulations are changing as the population of walleyes grows.
Walleye fishing in Saginaw Bay can be extremely rewarding. The season begins in early May and extends into early June and July. During this time, you’ll be able to catch limit-sized walleye, and sometimes you’ll even catch a few other species. Besides walleye, you can catch big perch, northern pike, and white bass.
Perch fishing in Hessel
Perch fishing is improving in the Hessel, Bucs area. Many anglers are reporting good results on the pier, east of Hessel Bay, Snows Channel, Middle Entrance, and Cedarville Bay, as well as in weed beds. Meanwhile, pike fishermen are reporting excellent action in the nearby Bush Creek and Carp River. They are reporting a steady flow of nice-size fish, and they’re catching them in lures, crawler harnesses, and jigging minnows.
Perch fishing in Hessel, Bucs, and Wilderness Bays is a great way to see what kind of action is possible. There’s a wide range of options, so you’re sure to find the perfect spot to fish. The marina offers 24 boat slips, each with updated electric, and a dog-friendly area. Other amenities include a gazebo, laundry facilities, and pump out. You can also take advantage of the town’s excellent restaurants and shops. The marina is also convenient to travel to, and there are several special events throughout the year.

Lake trout fishing in Hesperia
If you’re looking for the best trout fishing in SoCal, Hesperia Lake may be the place to go. The lake is full of quality trout and offers limit-style action, even in the off-season. The fishery receives a 1,000-pound trout plant each week from nearby Mt. Lassen, and anglers will be able to find them in a variety of sizes and types.
The fishing area is open year-round, and there are several camping sites to choose from. Most sites include a fire ring and picnic table, and most have electricity. The campground does not have a dump station, but restrooms and potable water are readily available. If you have a boat, you can use the ramp at the Hesperia Dam.
The White River is a popular destination for steelhead, salmon, and trout. While trout fishing is a little slow below the Hesperia dam, steelhead and fall salmon migrations bring anglers to the river. In addition to lake trout, anglers can also find steelhead and lake run walleye.

Perch fishing in Long Lake
Perch fishing in Long Lake is a great way to get a great catch in a beautiful lake. The lake has been around for a long time and has been managed by the Michigan Fish Commission since 1888. A survey in 1888 revealed that the lake was home to 735 fish, and 85% of those were yellow perch. Almost 50 years passed before the lake was again surveyed and stocked with largemouth bass. Another survey in 1933 used a 25-foot straight seine to collect data and documented a typical warmwater fish community.
Another great lake to try for perch is Senger Lake, a small lake located about six miles east of Strasburg. This lake is home to smaller perch and a good number of walleye and pike. Another popular lake near Rolette is Lepp Lake, a small lake containing mostly light perch. This lake has an increasing size structure, but there is no boat ramp.
The best spots for perch fishing in Long Lake are the dams and lakes near McVille. The McVille Dam is one mile east of town and has fair perch and pike populations. The Silver Creek Dam, just four miles west, is a popular spot for walleye and pike fishing during the winter. Both these dams contain good numbers of bluegill and perch. The Tolna Dam is two miles south and east of McVille. This lake also has fair walleye and pike density and has smallmouth bass.
Long Lake is located in the central part of the Adirondacks, and it is accessible by car or train. The state Thruway to Utica and Route 28 will bring you to the area. The village of Long Lake, which sits at the junction of Routes 28N and 30, is at the southern end of the lake.
