There is no doubt that the winters in the north woods are harsh & long.

And the summers never seem long enough.

But for just a few brief weeks in the April / May,

and again in Aug / Sept, I am surrounded by 

what can only be described as World Class Smallmouth fishing.  

And I don't even need a passport . . .

Getcha Some !

Just got home.  I’ll do a post soon.  This was a numbers year.  Due to the early stretch of warm weather, we pretty much missed the first wave of big girls but we got into numbers and averaged 50-75 fish each a day and there were 6 of us fishing.  Best was a little over 5lbs and we probably caught 10 in that weight class for the week.  Great trip and we took 3 guys who had never been.  They were in shock by the end of the week.  😂

I can understand how they felt.  People not from around here are in awe of our fisheries, and those that live here take them for granted just because we are so used to it.  You guys should've hit the Detroit River for a day while you were here, the silver bass run is epic.  I caught many master angler fish (16"+) and a few over the 20" mark.  Even had some straighten hooks on me.  I have yet to have a smallie do that.  Those silvers are fierce, and they come through the river in the millions.  They like to chase baitfish to the surface and when they're feeding, the surface boils.  Early in the morning I throw topwater for them, and as the day goes on I switch to soft plastic swimbaits.

Is this what you mean by “Silver Bass”?  There’s so many different names for the same fish.

If you do come up north ~

Swim at your own risk.

Heckuva fish, congrats!  Looks like you might be in the canoe, wondering if you have the waypoint data for how far she pulled you around the lake?  :)
