  1. The smallmouth season is pretty much done for Presque Isle Bay. There are still a few smallies in the bay, but most have returned to the main lake. I held back from ...more posting this picture, because this was a good spot for me in early May, and I didn’t want it over-fished (I have had several fishermen come up to me at various lakes and say that they recognize me from Fishidy). It was hot for about 3-5 days and then went back to normal. The day before I caught this smallmouth, I won a tournament at this spot, catching what was then my personal best smallie (5 lbs 8 oz and 20 1/4 inches). In rougher weather, I returned to the spot on the next day. It was on fire again, and, again, I caught my PB smallmouth, besting my previous day’s PB by one ounce at 5 lbs 9 oz. The bass that second day averaged 4 pounds. It was a great spring at PIB. I can’t wait to go there next spring.

    5 lb. 9 oz. 21 in. Smallmouth Bass with a Ned Rig

  8. I’ve never fished during a gale watch before. The bass were feeding as the cold front was moving in. I was able to fish from shore (not my kayak, I’m not stupid). ...more I was in a spot that was somewhat sheltered from the wind, and where it was blowing offshore (creates smooth conditions and you can cast a mile). I fished 3 1/2 hours but caught 15 fish. There was not much size. This was the biggest.

  9. There are still a few smallmouth in the Bay. This was the largest bass of 9 (7 smallies, 2 largemouths, and 15 fish total). Overall, most were smaller males. This ...more one was the lone female, which says to me that the smallies are making their way out to the main lake.
