19 May 2017 ~ New Michigan PB Smallie !

18 posts in this topic

  Planned on hitting it at dawn, but the 30 degree air temps had me rethinking my decision.  Instead, I dragged my feet with the hopes that the sun would warm things up a little.  It did, but the tradeoff was a semi-stiff NE wind – not a fan.  The hour or so ride to the lake went quickly and I was on the water @ 9:30 or so.  This is the place that “I had a Day” a couple of weeks ago, so expectations were high.  I was not disappointed. 

 Started off slow, a walleye, a few pike and then  . . . .Boom.  The strike I’ve been waiting ten years for.   Six pounds of awesome northern Michigan Smallie.  This bass fought just hard enough to take  me to my knees, especially after I got a good look at her.   Once in the net, she was stout & totally gorgeous.   I was pretty pumped.  She yanked the scale down to 6.21lbs.  A new Michigan Smallmouth Personal Best.    The Perch Megabass jerkbait accounted for this catch, along with another very respectable smallie.  That one weighed 5.11 lbs.  These were the only two bass I got all day.  You know who’s not complaining ?   This Guy !  

Here's a Pic of a decent double.

Daang A-Jay! That's a fish of a lifetime for most folks. I'd bet that you'll get a 6.5 within a year.

Wow that is a tank! Let me guess, after you landed her you found that the camera wasn't running? Nine times out of ten I never record any of the good fish on the GoPro.
