Lower Peninsula Fishing / Re: Grand River - 12/9/2018

I always have extra trebles as well.  Going to have to start carrying split rings as well though. 

I predict there will be fish there all winter to be honest.  Because of the way that the dam was operating, It is my belief that for the last two to three months they were basically inaccessible from shore except for after dark.  Pretty sure they were hanging out in a certain hole during the day that I couldnít get to easily and I only ever saw a couple people even trying.  It wouldíve been a good fall to have a kayak out there I think, but i only saw that one time.

Almost all of the fish I caught this fall were after dark and they were moving up into really shallow and barely moving water.  The ones I got during the day were either right when there was a change in current or I was intercepting them as they moved from the deeper hole to the shallower area right before sunset.

Now that the water is moving the way i am used to, even in the 25 degree weather I managed a hook up in my typical run using a lure.  I think next time I go I am bringing my longer rod and seeing if I can get the bead thing working for me...

Donít feel too bad - not many boats going to make It all the way up there because the water is super low...  and gin clear...

Fished at Webber today for a couple hours.  Had one take, fought It for a couple minutes, It came off.  Reeled in and was entirely POíd to see that I had one mangled hook, and one broken split ring.  This was a Husky Jerk HJ 12 and I have never had a problem with the hardware on these lures.  Cost me a 20# fish (it was bigger than the biggest one Iíve caught)...  only bite I had, just reeling It down and banging the bottom then dead sticking all the way through the run I was fishing.  The hit was ferocious and even though I didnít land It, it was nice to get the adrenaline going...

Flood gates at Webber are closed.  Fish ladder is also closed.  Water is coming through the powerhouse.  Steelhead are there.  So is cold...

They blasted upstream fast because the water was so warm and low when they came in.  Middle of September the river was loaded with them for like 3 days below Webber and then they were gone.

One night I saw at least 200 fish move up the ladder - I think I posted a pic of a salmon from that night.

Not that I care because walleye have been great...

Too bad I havenít fished in like a month...

Went tonight for a couple hours and froze, but got a couple.

As a side note, if Consumers ever decides to start running water through the turbines at Webber again, that would be nice...

Crawling a silver Shadow Rap as slow as I could reel and still get action...

Nice fish, Matt.  I have about 8 more weeks and hopefully I can get down there.  Ice is likely out but as long as there are some clear trails I should be walking well enough.  Just be sure to save some.

8 more weeks - that stinks, but it is better than 12 more weeks...

I've been throwing most everything back to be honest.  Out of the last 40 or so walleye I've caught I think I brought 6 home...

Fished Webber today for a couple hours.  Got some smallmouth, a walleye, and a pike.  The wind was absolutely horrid.

Lost the fish I was after - 0 for 1 on steelhead today...

All fish on a silver and black Shadow Rap. 
S-L-O-W was the ticket as all fish hit the lure on the fall...

Ooh It was just right - I caught 20 smallmouth, 8 walleye, and a big fat pike.

I actually prefer to fish when the water is up a little because It concentrates the fish.

Has been absolutely on fire the last two days.

Kept 4 walleye last night, let a couple more go today, and absolutely destroyed smallmouth today - I caught 19 of them...including my personal best.  Also got my friendsí son his first two walleye.

Shadow Rap.  Husky Jerk.  Along the seam.  Very slow twitch pause twitch.  Carbon and Moss Back Shiner have been the two best colors for the Shadow Rap.  Glass Perch HJ 10 or Firetiger HJ 12 have been producing as well.



















Thereís a few of them...

Steelhead.  Walleye.  Both abundant.  Should be a great month - looking to do better than the 38 walleye I got last month...
