Lots of fish this week though they didn’t always come easy! Big smallies today but nothing compares with having youngsters on board with a rod in their hand and a smile on their face. See MoreSee Less

Yes on the youngsters .

Trimester 2 started wild. Biggest smallie this week was a 6.98 lber (Can we round up to 7 lbs?).
Big #s of smallmouth on Charlevoix and mixed bags of smallies, lake trout, cisco on the big lake.
The sooner we get thru the smallmouth spawn the better. All of our fish will be in the attack mode at that point. Recently, we’re fishing one way for the prespawners and a different way for the postspawners.
Many tournaments this weekend. As we hear of more accidents on our congested waters throughout the country–all boaters please be safe.

Here’s wishing all an enjoyable and safe Memorial Day weekend. And let us, on this kickoff to summer, not lose sight of this holiday’s intent–to honor the fallen serving our country.
The longest first trimester of smallmouth fishing in NW Michigan has ended. The first smallie came on board on March 3 and they have continued throughout the winter pattern ad well as prespawn.
More over 6.5 lbs than ever were caught and likewise with those over 5 lbs. The single day highlight was a five-fish bag just shy of 30 lbs.
I look forward to the second trimester of 2024.
God Bless!

Very nice. Can’t beat the beauty of Northern Michigan. Hoping the great fishing keeps going and there are still some six-pounders out there in July. 😎

Postspawn smallies cruising the bluegill beds create a good time for annual visitors. Four miles north we had prespawners suspended off the break.
Fun days spent with good people!

An empty parking lot is unusual in May.
A couple smallies were over 6 lbs with none of the others over 4 lbs. Quiet Cove’s Deep Diving Jerkbait was the star (again).
And then devoted some time to amass a limit of perch up to 14"…
Home cooking this week!
