3/14/2010 River action is So-So at best after the rain and wind. Water is super dirty High/Low. Tons of boat traffic people fishing everywhere, blowin through no-wake zones - its a circus
11/19/2009 Hit the shore for a while in bay city and bagged a few. Jigheads and grubs did the trick today
10/5/09 Shads are everywhere in the river. The river water is still 68 degrees so it has to cool off for the eyes to move in numbers. Jigged a few spots down town and action was slow.
3/8/09 Well the fat lady has sang today. I'm done on the bay there is some ice out there but it is getting soft and the shore ice is shot. I hope to have a little sea nymph up and running for the river opener! This season was pretty good! Vets boat launch is open! Here is a pic from last week. (pork rind)
5/14/14 It was a great ice season, a outstanding sucker run, sweet spring walleye action and now the bass are on fire. Big shout out to Blood Run Tackle
1/19/14 the ice season has been great, started early and will probably last well into March. The Saginaw River has about a foot of ice everywhere with another cold spell on the way. The Bay has been on fire but travel has sucked with snow storms, high winds, rain, and just plain cold temps. 1000s of shantys have lined the river since xmas. The old stand-bys jiggin raps and jigheads.
6/28/13 caught eyes, smallies, rockies, and a sheep all from shore today. The current is way up from all the rain with more on the way. Grubs, Fin-S, gulp and sexy shad crank today did work.

2/13/13 Does not look good. Open water, more rain, wind, warmer temps, more rescues, could be the end. Sit tight. The Fowler center $7000 pike toury is still on as of 2/11. Sat the 16th tons of prizes. Also good job to the Coast Guardwith all the rescues. Here is a link to the article. VIDEO/RESCUE .
1/28 pretty good weekend on the river 5" of ice pretty much everywhere tons of 14"ers. Jiggin raps took most of the fish. Good luck to those who entered the shiver on the river. Hope the rain doesn't do to much damage mon-wed. The bay should hold up.
