Fair to good walleye catches were reported when trolling a crawler harness or stick baits in 12 to 16 feet off Breezy Point, south of the Ford River in eight to 14 feet, and off the mouth of the Whitefish River in 12 to 18 feet. The Gladstone Bay area out from the Terrace Inn was good at times in 35 feet but the “Black Bottom” was best when using stick baits in 16 to 25 feet in the early morning or at dusk. Perch anglers reported fewer catches but some nice jumbos were taken. Fair catches were reported off Gladstone Beach in 18 to 25 feet and off Kipling in 22 to 24 feet. Smallmouth bass have started moving south however fish were still being caught either south or straight out from the Ford River with plastics in 12 to 18 feet and along the southern end of the “Black Bottom” in eight to 15 feet.
