Hawg Hunt!

Recommended Posts

The annual hawg hunt has come and gone again in Northern Michigan (Indian River) on Burt/Mullet lakes. These are easily some of the best smallmouth fishing lakes in the State. I know KVD and some of the other Toyota guys were up there about this time last year, and from what I've heard try to come at least once a year. The bite was a little tough because the lake was just starting to turn over but the winner almost beat the tournament record of 6lb 12oz.

This is the 6lb 10oz pig that won it all. We only caught a 4lber but we still had a good time.

Also...mid 30's + 60mph on open water = really cold. Bundle up! My eyes still froze, so I had to wear my sunglasses at 7am.

I'm not sure what the guys with the winning fish caught theirs on.  We caught all our fish on lipless cranks and fat free shads.  Which is strange because we talked to others who all used senkos and tubes.  A couple said that they threw cranks for a while but couldn't even get a bite.  We on the other hand couldn't get them to touch a senko, tube, or jig.  

It was very strange fishing conditions.  The fish we found were in 5-10 feet of water with nothing but sand all around.  I figure that they were cruising around looking for food and our cranks conveniently crossed their path :).

Nice smallie! Sounds like you had a great but COLD time too. I personally am not looking forward to having to fish in the colder temps. Congrats on your outing.  ;D
