Weekly Fishing Report - September 4, 2015

Lake Michigan has calmed down a bit and the perch fisherman have been getting out more. Reports from South Haven say that anglers fishing south of the pier in 35 to 42 feet of water are find good numbers of fish. Down in St. Joe, some perch are also being caught straight out of the pier and also to the south. Good depths have been 28 to 40 feet of water.

Boats trolling out of South Haven are getting a mixed bag of steelhead, king salmon, and lake trout. 75 to 100 feet of water has been the most productive depths.

There was a big flathead catfish hauled out of the Kalamazoo River below the Allegan Dam this week. That fish was caught on a sucker at 4 a.m. and it was 42 inches long weighing in at 34 pounds 4 ounces. Anglers below the dam are still getting a few walleyes as well.

A couple of fisherman out on Thornapple Lake landed two nice muskies this week. One was 43 inches long and the other was 48 inches long. Both fish were released.

Pike fisherman are catching them out on Long Lake this week. Long Lake has also been pretty good for bluegills also. Most of those gills run about 8 inches out there. Lake Cora, Little Paw Paw Lake, Cedar Lake, and Portage Lake have also been fairly good for bluegill fishing.

For some of the best bass fishing around here lately has been on Gull Lake, Austin Lake, Maple Lake, Deep Lake, Crooked Lake, and Duck Lake. Evenings have been good and anglers are getting some big ones after dark too.

Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day Weekend!
