Prime Smallmouth Fishing Right Now!

The mistake I made was telling my regular clients to wait until May 1 to come for a jerkbait bonanza.  Normally that is a good date to start.  We are now on our third week of consistent catches.  It is very good even though it changes a little from one day to the next.

A noteworthy catch was Saturday, April 22 when the best five weighed in at 24.82 (anchored by a 5.92).  Half-day catches are regularly between 20 and 30 keepers.  Today (April 24) there were 22 keepers in less that 3 hours.  We have three Traverse City area lakes producing at this time.

Forget what I said about May 1–get here now.
