State fishing report: Bass, panfish action in full swing

LANSING (AP) - Bass and panfish action is in full swing on the inland lakes, according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. The walleye bite has slowed with the extremely warm weather, the DNR said in its weekly fishing report. It said some of the rivers are low and clear which makes trout fishing much more of a challenge. SOUTHWEST LOWER PENINSULA

Grand Haven:  With the warm water, fishing is a bit more difficult.  Try downriggers 45 to 85 feet down in 220 to 300 feet of water or 10 and 13 color lead core 150 to 300 feet deep for salmon.  Spoons are the bait of choice and the hot colors were green, orange or blue.  Pier anglers were catching freshwater drum.  A couple boats tried for perch but had no luck.
