Upper Peninsula Weekly Fishing Report – Nov. 12, 2020
Little Bay de Noc: Walleye anglers were fishing from the “Black Bottom” north to the Center Reef. Catch rates were spotty, as some reported fair to good catches while others caught little or no fish. Those fishing the “Black Bottom” were jigging minnows and crawlers along the east bank, while those trolling had stick baits or a crawler harness in 8 to 20 feet. Up near the Center Reef, anglers were trolling a crawler harness or stick baits in 15 to 30 feet.

St. Marys River: Was producing walleye, pike and smallmouth bass. Those trolling and casting in Munuscong Bay have caught muskie.

Fishing Tip: Fall is an important time to think about gear maintenance

With the colder months quickly approaching, many anglers may be getting ready to store their gear for the season. Below are a few maintenance tips you should follow so your gear is cared for and ready to be used next season.

  1. Make sure your gear is clean and completely dry before storing it. Start by cleaning everything (rods, reels and line) in fresh water with soap or with the manufacturer’s recommended solution to remove any materials that may have become attached or embedded.
  2. Inspect your gear for any damage and make any repairs or prepare for replacements.
  3. Don’t store any of your gear in direct sunlight or in a place where heat and/or moisture might build up.
  4. Air your waders out completely, and don’t forget to hang them upside-down for the months they are out of use.
