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.
