Bait Fishing Report June 30, 2016

Bait Fishing Report June 30, 2016

The bait fishing has been pretty good out in McGee Bay.  You want to be fishing in
the 20 to 22-foot range, out around the SS Relief.  By far, the top bait has been
the inflated night crawler, fished on an 18 to 24-inch leader.  The water is still
in pretty good condition, a little algae is starting to show up, but it has not been
a problem so far.  If you don't like the crowds, there are still fish off of Sometimes
 Bay in 20 to 22 feet of water.  The other place you might want to try is around
Alligator Point, again in 20 to 22 feet of water.



Perch Fishing Report June 30, 2016

Perch Fishing Report June 30, 2016

The perch fishing has been a little slow this week, the perch are holding up in the
thick weeds, in the middle of their spring spawn.  In another couple of weeks, they
will start moving off of their beds, and back to the outside edges of the weed beds.  
The most productive method has been trolling lead head - power grubs outside the weed
beds till you find the fish.  Then just start drifting and casting to them.  Most of
the fish that are coming in have been from around McGee Bay, either the 395 shoreline,
or along the north side of McGee.


Fly Fishing Report June 30, 2016

Fly Fishing Report June 30, 2016

The fly fishing has been very good early in the mornings till around 10:00 or 11:00.  
Then, they seem to take a long break till around 1:00 when things start picking up
again. The best area continues to be McGee Bay from the weed edges in 16 to 17 feet,
all the way out to 21 feet.  We have had our best success on the small Albinos, and
small Copper Tigers fished about 4 to 6 inches off the bottom.  Once things start
picking up after lunch, we have been using large Black Tigers, and small Red Barons.  
These, I have been fishing about 10 to 12 inches off the bottom.  There are also good
numbers of fish over at Sometimes Bay holding in the 20 to 21foot range.  The fish in
North Arm has pretty much dispersed, hopefully they will move back in there before too

Trolling Report June 30, 2016

Trolling Report June 30, 2016
Welcome to the 4th weekend. The trolling has been as tough as it gets to very good.  
The very best areas have been both sides of McGee Bay. Both the Stormy Flats area and
off the campground. The fish are not as deep as you think although they can be caught
out in the deep water. My best results have been in the 25 to 35 foot water putting the
lures down 20-24 feet. Early and late is key. Sounds like a broken record but the best
lures have been Tasmanians in frog patterns and Rapalas in rainbow colors. There is a
new Rapala rainbow color that works and looks just like a pattern I have been making on
silver and black for years. Remember don’t leave fish to find fish and fish where the
fish are. Believe in your electronics.  Don Meier  CPR Guiodeservice  750 784 1524
