I spent the holiday on Washington Island and had a lot of time to fish. I tried to target Browns the first day but had no luck. Luckly on Sat I found a bunch of yellow perch in and around a Jackson Harbor (located on the north east side of the island) and caught about twenty in three hours using crawlers.

Last Wednesday I fished Belleau for a few hours in the afternoon but didn't catch anyhting. However, it was still a beautiful day.

Fish on!

Seems like a break well spent. Catching fish is always fun!!!
Thanks for the report Islandfisher. Washington Island is such a great place to fish. Where you fishing from shore, or were you in a boat? It sounds like it was definitely worth your while.
I've heard there are some nice northern pike up that way. Is that so?

I was fishing from shore this time Doc. I spent the other time I had up there putting new seats in my 14' aluminum.

Yes Jason, there are quite a few northern up there. However I can never catch them when I try. In the past I have caught them while fishing for bass or perch using jigs and minows.

All in all it was a great time.

Most noteably, Washington Island is the place for smallies. There are also many other species in abundance there too.
