Default Caseville Walleye

Remove this ad.....
become a Supporting Member today.
I was wondering if anyone has any walleye reports out of caseville lately. My Dad is taking some first timers out this coming monday and would really like to get them into some fish. Our home port is port austin, but the plan is to dock the boat for a few days in caseville and go from there. We have the ablity to make a run if need be.

Thanks in advance for any help

I've heard some good reports coming from Wildfowl Bay, between Sand Pt. and North Island. Never fished this area but looking at the map, it gets pretty shallow around the point, so you may want to steer clear of the point and make a big loop into the WF Bay.

Caseville is my home port... PPl have been hitting right out of Sand Pt like Silky said... 2oz. bouncers with crawler harnesses. If you look on the chart you will see a slit right by that bouy that is infront of Sand Pt... That is the spot were ppl are hitting...

Due to this past Sunday's winds, we launched out of Bay Port and ran out to the slot just West of North Island. We picked up three walleye before the winds turned more out of the North. Then we got the heck out of there as the waves became 3-5 footers. Weather permitting, I would definitely hit the slot off of Sand Point like the guys have already suggested. Good luck.
