Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

2019 is finally here and another great year behind us for the books… taking back to back top certificate totals for the state of Michigan! … Breaking 2017 totals of 15 certs with a bottom of the ninth 22” trophy White Sucker! 2017-8 rocked!

Michigan DNR with a new change for Master Angler program only one length per species going to be tougher to get the totals. So the goal this year is to target more species.

I got the family on the trophies last year but on private lakes consequently they didn’t reach the DNR books… soooo more public lake fishing for the family! Need to get their names in the books!!

It will make for an interesting year.

Good Fishing Everyone!

Cold Water Period - Small Mouth Bass – Swim Jig

With winter like start to spring, late ice-out, snow, rain, low water levels and a busted tow vehicle it seems I’m spinning my wheels lately trying to hit the open-water season. The only option I have right now is a couple shoreline spots. With a 8ft drop down in water levels vacating the fish from those locations. Just recently the dam has been tightened and water levels have recovered somewhat. So has the fishing a bit… a few pike at first and now the SMB’s are starting a comeback. Today I split a short trip between the tail end of a Minor.Period and the beginning of a Major.Period uptick nearing the dusk period. I tag into my first smallie of the year… swim jigging. Only one fish on this short trip… but felt great! Keep those lines tight! Slip
