Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.
Muskegon Lake Walleye Rating:
2.5
Muskegon Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- jiggin' spoon with a minnow head through the ice. husky jerk or swim bait such as northlands and storms in spring, focus presentation over color but don't rule out color.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.
Muskegon Lake Catfish Rating:
4.5
Muskegon Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- When the water is warm at the beach (65+ degrees), fish the piers with cut bait, gizzard shad, alewife, and shrimp. Lots of catfish in the 5-15 pound range. Use a Sabiki rig to catch alewives in the channel.
