Jay’s Walleye Trip – Saginaw Bay

Saginaw Bay is well known for a variety of reasons primarily being a prolific fishery for all sorts of different species, Smallmouth bass, perch and Walleye. The numbers of walleye in this fishery is no secret, in fact there are so many that the daily creel per fisherman was recently increased to eight fish per person and the size limit lowered form fifteen inches to thirteen inches. While I spend most of my time targeting Bass here, I had the opportunity through Jay’s to take a charter with Mr. Dave Maxwell of Time Out Charters. Dave is based out of Linwood Michigan and is very good at what he does. Coupled with his beautiful boat and his fish catching ability, it made for a great day on the water. We trolled a variety of baits from small spoons to small crankbaits but the fish seemed to enjoy all of them that day. We ended with a three man limit plus a few extras which we tossed back to be caught another day. I would highly recommend anyone interested in spending a day chasing these fish to check out Dave Maxwell’s charter. You can contact him at (989) 429- 0540. You can watch us apply all of these techniques in the video below. Any questions about the details of the products used or just about this topic in general you can find me in the fishing department at Jay’s Clare location or reach out via Instagram @cobi_pellerito.
