Saginaw Bay Walleye Charter | Captain Scott Devuyst

Captain Scott's season starts May 1st out of Bay City for Saginaw Bay's early walleye fishery. This is PRIME TIME to catch some of the bigger fish that are dropping back into the bay from their spring spawning runs.

It's also not unusual to catch brown trout, lake trout, salmon and steelhead during this early fishery, as the water is still very cold in the bay. Dress warm for this early fishing.

June and July provide EXCEPTIONAL walleye action. The weather is warm and the walleye fishing is RED HOT! Limit catches of these scrappy gamefish are the rule rather than the exception. Smallmouth bass, big perch, catfish, freshwater drum, and northern pike are frequently a part of the days catch, often providing non-stop action. This is a great time to get kids interested in fishing, as they have little time to get bored! This is a busy time for us so try to book your trip as far ahead as possible.

August can also be a fine walleye month if the weather holds constant. However, once the hurricane season starts in the south, it really disrupts our northern weather as well, bringing lots of wind our way.

Saginaw Bay Michigan has now asserted itself as the Walleye Fishing Capital of the World, surpassing Lake Erie as the the number one destination for targeting limits of walleye. The ports of Linwood and Au Gres Michigan provide the hottest fishing action during the months of June and July for limits of eater sized walleye.

Saginaw Bay has the unique characteristics of a relatively shallow basin full of bait, but in close proximity to the cold deep waters of Lake Huron. Influx of cold water mixing with warmer shallow bay waters create the perfect habitat for feeding walleyes. The combination provides the most fertile walleye fishing grounds in the world!
