Norhthern MI - Hubbard or THunder bay

Recommended Posts

I posted a few weeks ago.  Thought I would ask opinions on Hubbard, Thunder bay and Devil lake for small mouth. 

 

Planning a trip first week May this year.  Coming from PA and my cousin from Houston.  We hit St Clair last two years.  Liked it and caught a lot, but lots and lots of boats. 

 

thanks for any info

There 's is a Very Good Chance ~ that you Will Not see ANY WHERE NEAR the boating traffic on any of the waters mentioned above as you may experienced on St Clair in May.

Sounds like you're no stranger to the brown bass, either way there's some good reading pinned at the top of this section. If you head up there a post trip write up and pics are a must! Good luck.

@A-Jay will those lakes be thawed out by the 1st week of May?

It's a toss up, it really is.

 Ice out could be Mid April - Could be Mid May.

I'm a fan of the earlier time frame.

Last season it was 5th of May - 

Hated that.

Pre-Spawn lasted like 20 minutes - tops.

It just seems that it could be really cold up there during that time frame.  I know I've fished Lk St Clair a ton and it could be 80 degrees the 1st week of May or it could be 40. Make sure your lodge has a decent cancellation policy @spslewis

I can deal with some cold - 

But it really slows my roll when my casts bounce instead of splashing.
