Hey guys im from michigan the lapeer county area my favorite local lake is murphy lake. I was wondering if anyone else is from michigan. The largemouth fishing isn't as popular as the smallmouth and walleye fishing. What are some of your favorite lakes in Michigan? By the way this ice is makin me crazy lol

I'm up in Otsego County.

I fish just about any & all medium to small waters North of Hwy 72 but have been known to sneak down as far south as US-10.

I'm down in Monroe County. I fish for a lot of river smallies in the Raisin, and largemouth in a lot of smaller lakes in the nearby area.

Mid- March open water sounds good to me, too.

Detroit area for me. Mostly Lake St Clair (LSC).   Though I fish Kent Lake, Orion, Cass, Stoney Creek, Lakeville 

I like LSC except weekends. Too many boats.  

Have fun n be safe.

"Good" is completely relative. For example, you and I compared to a lot of the other members here, couldn't compete. We are on a Bass dedicated forum. One of the biggest, if not biggest, forums dedicated to Bass fishing in the country. To us, being on here, we feel like the newbs - in which we kind of are. We don't have the years of expertise a lot of other people have. However, on the local circuits/tourneys, we are above average. That's me speaking personally. 

When I come on here, I come here to learn and teach. Learn what I don't know and teach what I've learned. But most of the time, a lot of the posters are far above me in expertise and knowledge - I can't always maintain a thread convo because I'm not to their level. However, if I go to my local sporting good stores, I can maintain, lead, and usually surpass any conversation there.

So again, relative. Have confidence. For what it's worth, I've never fished a tourney. This year is my first. My passion for fishing is only a few years old. Before that, it was an occasional hobby. But my life changed (divorced) and put me in a situation where the opportunity and finances allowed me to persue fishing with a more committed sense. Once I was able to do that, I absolutely fell in love with it. 

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Phil ;)

I completely agree.  Most members on here are the local bass fishing stars in there area, but on bassresource some seem not as skilled.  You just might be better than you think.

Exactly. Understanding that there are always people that know more than you, and then tapping into that resource (pun totally intended), will only escalate your skills as an angler. I for one am above average for my area in Bass fishing (personal assessment through experience and conversation). However, when I come on here, I feel like the little guy - which I am. I'm here to learn. Spread knowledge or advice to those I think can benefit but most importantly, learn.

I've only been a member here for less than two weeks and I've already learned a lot. It's gratifying knowing that I have this resource and this group of members to assist me in my journey. If Bass fishing is truly your passion, commit and have the confidence in what you do.
