Updated Saginaw Bay Area Fishing Report

Capt. DanHey everybody.
I apologize for not posting in a while. But I had a slip and fall accident while sucker fishing on the Rifle River earlier this past spring, tore some muscles in my left leg and knee, and had surgery to fix the damage on the 9th of May. With Doctors instruction to stay off my left leg for 4 to 6 weeks, I decided to have my larger (Grady White) charter boat put back into storage for this summer season. I will still be running 2 person trips out of my smaller boat once I can negotiate it. I can report though that the fishing has started to finally pick up in clean water areas not stained liked chocolate milk from the massive amounts of rain we had the last few weeks. Both cranks and harnesses are doing the job when the fish are found. The fish seem to be roaming around in more tighter schools then usual this spring, so when you hit a fish marking it and then circling around is the best method for taking a few more. The best catch reports I have are coming from anywhere between 14 to 18 FOW where (again) cleaner waters are present. I’ll do my best to get back on my feet, get back out and give you some first hand reports. In the meantime, be safe, fish smart and tight lines everyone.
