It was a good weekend at Presque Isle. 17 bass and a pike in a day and a half of fishing. The largest was just under 3 lbs. Definitely some healthy fish.
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.
Feisty little guy, he splashed me multiple times near my kayak. You can see the water on my face!
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.
Caught six smallies about this size. Today was a fishing potluck. I caught 28 fish total, 5 different species, and 18 bass (I don’t count rock bass as a bass). Fun ...more day!
This walleye surprised me, while I was fishing for bass. I was lucky that he didn’t bite me off. Wish I had a live well (though these big eyes aren’t as tasty as ...more the smaller ones). Released quickly, and it swam away fine after a little tail winding.
Largest of eight bass (17 total fish) today. Unbelievably crowded on the water today. 2-3 foot just from the continuous boat wakes.
(Western Basin) The fishing is changing here, but still regarded by many as the best and most productive Walleye and Smallmouth Bass fishery in North America. Nearly 27,000,000 Walleye are available t...

Walleye are the main attraction as the population has rebounded yet again in recent years. Smallmouth Bass and Yellow Perch offer additional angling opportunities.
Suggested Location for Stocked Trout from Rick Road bridge downstream to Route 98 bridge.
