Escanaba river west gladstone bridge area
« on: August 25, 2011, 12:26:11 AM »

Fished the escanaba river last Sunday. Was a nice day, fun fishing.
Caught 5 or 6 nice smallmouth, 6 or 7 pike (one nice one lost at boat.), bluegill and perch..
Caught most fish upstream of bridge..only saw 2 other boats out there all day.

Nice job! I went to a place last weekend on the Escanaba river. I am not sure were though. If you go through Gladstone and take a right by were the family dollor is at and just go straight for about five miles it crosses the river(if it is not that road it is the one by the shell station and McDonald's in Gladstone). Not too sure. It kinda looks like a lake on both sides of the bridge. I think it might be the place you are talking about. Anyways I just went off the bank and was casting a big pike spinner and caught a 31 incher along with a 17 inch smallie. Only fished a little while. Might throw the boat in there this weekend. Is there any walleye in there? I am going to try up farther past that dam thing where you can't use live bait for bass. I have done excellent there before fishing for bass. I have even caught some walleye, and nice trout in there too. One of those places where when you cast in and you don't know what you will catch.

Yes,
That is the west Gladstone bridge Kyle.
I have heard of people catching crappie, pike, walleye, smallmouth, and pumpkinseed in there.
It is super weedy, then the channel in the middle is nice and open.
Good luck,
Brett
