Traverse City Area

Bass fishing has been good in Grand Traverse Bays, but the fish have moved out to the first drop-off. Tubes and drop-shot rigs have produced the best results. The hex hatch is over on the Boardman and the Manistee rivers and terrestrials are producing the best results now. Walleyes are hitting crawlers fished in 20 to 25 feet of water in South Lake Leelenau.
