4/3 Escanaba River and 4/2 Johnson Lake
« on: May 04, 2015, 01:16:42 PM »

4/3: Bite was very slow at the Peter Nordeen Park in Gwinn. Tried Blue and Silver Little Cleo's, which is THE go to for most folks around here, with no luck. Rooster Tails and Mepps are up there also, but you see more Cleo's on average. Switched to a pink and silver Mepps with no luck, and then finally decided to try crawlers. Kept getting little nibbles from what I imagine was probably creek chubs, then my very last cast before work I caught a 12" Brown. Shortly thereafter it started raining, so I imagine it'll be a little slow fishing in the river for the next day or so like it usually is after a rain.

4/2: Went out for a couple hours with some friends. I caught the first Largemouth, 15.5" roughly 2-2.5lbs. My buddy landed a VERY FAT 21" 5lb Largemouth. That was about the extent of our trip, since I didn't take the boat out and fishing from shore leaves you limited options to move around.

Not recently. I'll probably fish the Republic Sportsmans Club tourney like usual. And I'll be in for any tourneys FishMich puts on. Otherwise probably not, unless I had a partner that could split costs.

I know how it feels to be boatless (semi boatless anyway). I just sold mine, but I did a partial trade so I got a brand new canoe now. I'm not a huge fan of canoe fishing, but it opens up a ton more areas I would never even attempt to access with the boat so I guess it's a plus
