One of Michigan’s most widely visited fishing destinations is Saginaw Bay. Known for its walleye, anglers ascend on the water in the spring to see how many of them they can catch. Walleye, whitefish, and yellow perch are the main species caught here; however, there are other species available, including plentiful carp, bullhead, smallmouth bass, sunfish, sucker, northern pike, and largemouth bass. Saginaw River is another area where anglers target walleye while using highly effective, soft plastic grub-tipped jigs. The most popular grub styles include 3-4” split-tail minnows, paddle-tail, and curl-tail. Mark this spot on your map, especially if you like to pursue walleye.
