Nope - I can pretty much walk anywhere in the river without getting the top of my shorts wet.  Super low and very little current.

Fished for the first time a lake I scouted last year about 45 miles west of my place last night. I also took a friend for his first time in a float tube. The place had some good bluegills, with a few 8 to almost 9". No dinks. Leeches on slip bobbers were the most effective bait. I'll definitely go back next month when I have some time off, but when I do, I'm gonna try the Wooly Bugger. There were tons of bugs and a lot of surface activity.

Though I enjoy catching nice bluegills, I want to start getting some bass. I'm heading to Ionia to fish with my nephew on Friday & Saturday. Might just have to try the Grand!

Beauties, Alleymad! Is the water coming up? The west has gotten more rain than over here in the SE.

Glad it worked!  Those little jigs did pretty well for us up north too!

Hey mac!  Have you ever fished Kent Lake?  It looks big and is right of i96.  I keep thinking it looks like it would be fun and may have to drive over one of these days with the boat.

Found some fish at Webber.  Caught them all on a Shadow Rap Shad in silver/black or perch.  Cast as close to the coffer as possible, reel down slack, and twitch It back super slow. 

No water moving through the powerhouse yet and fish ladder is not open.

Hey all!  I have been around a few places the past couple weeks so I figured I would just write about it all in one post.  First, I spend a long weekend in Grayling 2 weeks ago on Hardgrove lake (also called bear lake on some maps but not the popular bear lake in kalkaska).  Fishing was tough with the heat but once the sun started to go down we hammered panfish in about 10 ft of water.  Simple 1/32 oz jig tipped with a waxie.  Pulled slow on the bottom or under a bobber didn't seem to matter although movement was a little more productive.  We averaged 20 every half hour or so with 5 guys.  I also spent a little time the past week or so at night on the grand.  It's been really slow with only a couple rock bass and smallies to show for it.  I have thrown everything but live bait.  I have caught exactly 0 walleye this year and it's starting to become an issue.  Prairie creek is up for Sunday weather permitting.

I can say, so far, I've been sticking to my plan. It is very hard to resist the urge to fish docks when I know own I can pull fish off them. It also helps that I've been without a punch rod for the year as well.

It's been paying off. I've built a lot of confidence deep cranking. That will be more beneficial to me down the road versus catching bass in the same spots I've been catching them for years.
