It has been a great start. April and May provided more six pound and more five pound smallmouth than previous years. The ice left early and we were off to the races much earlier this year. That had to help.
Some of the most fun we enjoy all summer will be the post spawn fishing on Lake Michigan waters. It is a nice combination of quality and quantity. Besides, after jerk-baiting all spring it is nice and relaxing to fish our finesse jig.
