I snuck up the end of May to the big pond.  Of course the wind was 15 gusts to 30 straight out of the East so it was tough fishing but we managed a few.

Naw, I’m still around.  I’m moderating a couple of Facebook sites and it takes a lot of time. Our annual Michigan get together got canceled.  First the house on Hansen’s became unavailable due to the high water, so we booked another on the mainland.  Then the various COVID restrictions kept some our crew out of flying in without having to quarantine so we canceled that house as well.  Heading back to Wisconsin for 2 weeks next month and have been fishing a lot here locally.

We hit the water early this morning, nothing extravagant as far as big bass goes, a couple decent ones on a vibrating jig. 
 

6poundbass was using my pitching setup, as he’s going to the back of the boat I hear a thud and “oh no!” I look back to see my pitching set up slowly disappearing from my life forever. We tried forever to try and snap it to no avail. 
 

The bright side of things, I’ve fished this lake for 12 or so years and we saw something I’ve never seen on this lake and never seen in the wild. We heard a funny noise and saw movement around the lillypads and thought a beaver, then it popped itself out of the water about 12 inches and realized it was an otter! We saw it 2 other times within a half hour, that was pretty cool to see and totally unexpected.

How is the fishing up there? I was planning on heading back up there this weekend.  Haven't been up since the dog days of summer.  Are the cool nights bringing water temp down?  What ya catching em on?

 

TIA

The lakes I fish (all north of Rt 72) are definitely cooling off.

Weeds are starting to die back as well.

Seems much of the local brown bass population is still is that tricky transition stage.

Shorter days and more cool nights should speed that fall bite along soon enough though.

And who's not a fan of that ?

You're so charming when you make an effort.

Change of plans, was going to fish tonight but realized yesterday, tomorrow is the youth hunt. Scouted deer, to bed early tonight, early rise, and hopefully a deer come morning. I would love to cook some back straps by the end of the weekend. We’ll be back to fishing next weekend.

I have been bass fishing a little bit, but after January 31st, I realized that in winter, the Brown Trout still bite! Now Spring, Summer, and Early Fall are for Bass, and Late Fall/Winter/Early Spring are for Trout. Winter Bass fishing in Michigan isn't too good for me. And no, I didn't get to ice fish :( .

Ok.

 

My first bass of 2021 is not......ahh.....not exactly a giant, but I was happy when it bit my keitech on my 3rd cast of the year:

5 little guys all that size from the riverbank last Friday afternoon.

 

It's probably going to be a couple weeks yet before I can get the kayak out actually on any water, but might sneak a couple more short bank excursions in until then.
