Fishing report - Feb. 4, 2009
Saginaw Bay - The better walleye bite has been in the evening. Limits were caught before the cold snap. Pine River and Palmer Roads were producing some limits of walleye anywhere from three to ten miles out on the warmer days. Walleye have been caught off White's Beach in the Catfish Hole, three to four miles out of Linwood in 13 to 20 feet of water, off Erickson Road near the Black Hole and northeast of the Bay City State Park in 15 feet of water.
Au Gres - Out on the bay, anglers are going straight out from the river mouth about a mile and then either going north or south an equal distance and fishing walleye in about 15' of water. They did good when the fish were biting.
Au Gres River - Some walleye have been caught through the ice. Many were small however some keepers have been caught.
Tawas - Walleye were caught off the artificial reef before the extremely cold weather returned. Perch fishing was slow with most fish running small. Pike spearing was also slow with only a couple fish taken in 20 feet of water. Inside the breakwall, anglers speared a pike or two, caught a couple of walleye, and a lot of small perch. Some walleye were caught off Foster Road which is north of Au Gres.
