All, Im looking for some pointers for some successful fishing in Michigan. Date of Trip: 6/28 - 7/2 Boat Type: 17ft aluminum sea nymph (inland lakes only) Target species: Doesn't matter Number of people fishing: 3 Location: Silver lake - this is where our cabin is located, Hamlin Lake (30 min), Big Star Lake (30 min) Rods & Reels : medium and light rods / reels for bass / crappie fishing Tackle: Lots of small plastic / jig type baits, some bass spinners, plastic worms, top water, and crankbaits Other: Trolling motor, fish finders, net, livewell ----Questions ---- 1. I've never fished in Michigan, so I'm not sure where you are on spawn's.... Where are you on the spawn? 2. What species should I target knowing the areas I'll be fishing? (Do you recommend a different lake besides the ones I listed? 3. Should I charter out on Lake Michigan? 4. Should I get some additional tackle to target a different species (Lake Trout, Walleye, Perch, etc) My main objective would be to catch some fish for dinner a couple of nights for a fish fry while camping. If I was able to catch enough to bring home and put in the freezer, that would be a nice bonus! let me know and thank you for the help!
