Houghton Lake on Fire! 5/2/2015
Water temps to start the day were 54. We ended the day at 65. Walleyes still scattered. Picked up quite a few shorts (20 ish). We ended up with 11 legals. Crappies were stacked up when you found them. Took a little to find them. Ended up keeping around 40. Tons of northerns - one close to 30" - kept a bunch. Bluegills were just getting started in the canals. We caught some on the main lake. Almost all fish caught jigging plastics. Bass were on a terror! Must have released 75 or more. We had times when we'd have four fish on at a time in the boat. Biggest largemouth was over 5lbs. We caught a bunch of smallmouths in the 4 lb range.
