Most anglers off Potawatomi State Park have been reporting
limited success on perch in 10 to 20 feet of water. The perch that
were being landed were taking rose reds or wax worms. Northern pike
were the main draw, with a few nice fish being caught. Walleyes
continued to bite on Larson’s Reef; jigs tipped with minnows work
the best. People also were reporting whitefish mixed in with the
walleyes. The whitefish were taking jigs tipped with minnows or wax
worms. Walleyes were being caught in the ship channel in Sturgeon
bay. Riley’s Bay produced a few fish, with perch and whitefish
being landed in 20 to 30 feet of water. Even with a just few fish
being caught, most anglers were fishing all day. The perch action
was still slow at Little Sturgeon Bay, with most people catching
five or so keepers every time out. The whitefish were taking jigs
tipped with minnows or wax worms. At Dykesville, anglers were
having limited successes on perch. The perch that were being iced
were coming from 20 to 30 feet of water. Most anglers were jigging
and setting tip-ups. Minnows and wax worms seemed to be drawing the
most fish. Whitefish were being caught in 10 to 15 feet of water.
Most anglers were using minnow heads to catch them.
