Presque Isle Bay Fishing Reports

Recently shared catches and fishing spots

  1. Caught another 3 1/2 lb bass. This one hit next to an embankment. I didn’t get a good hook set, and he spit it. 20 mins later, I casted to the same spot, and he ...more hit again. I didn’t miss the second time. He was blind in one eye.

    3 lb. 8 oz. 18 in. Largemouth Bass with a Senko

    1. Nice
  2. I literally said, “Last cast,” when this late-season smallie hit close to sunset. Caught from shore.

      Hammering thos PI bass!
  4. Slow, clear day, almost no wind. Bite was slow and sporadic, but I did catch 13 fish this morning, only two smallies (mostly largemouths). This was the biggest of ...more the smallmouth, so nothing huge. I also caught a good-sized channel cat (at least 8 lbs). Poor thing had a big hook and about a foot of braid in its mouth from a previous fisherman. I removed the hooks and line, then released it.

  5. Feisty little guy, he splashed me multiple times near my kayak. You can see the water on my face!

  6. Biggest of 18 fish caught. All of the smallies were in the 2-3 lb range. Action picked up when the wind created a light surface chop.

  10. This bass was feeding up for the spawn. Look at the belly! Biggest bass of the seven fish I caught (the 6 lb. sheepshead doesn’t count). Tough east wind.
