Good walleye fishing was reported in 16 feet off Linwood, 12 to 15 feet off the Bay City State Park, the Old Dumping Grounds, 3 miles northeast of the Red Spark Plug (Buoys 11 & 12), 7 to 12 feet on the Callahan Reef and just about anywhere in the Slot and up on the Bar between Quanicassee and Sand Point. Try a gold and black crank bait. Spinner colors did not matter as the fish were hitting just about anything but fire-tiger and chartreuse are always good. Limit catches were common all over the bay. Catfish were caught in the Hot Ponds. Shore anglers fishing the Quanicassee River caught freshwater drum, catfish and a few bass. Those casting in the Sebewaing River caught a couple pike.
