    Hi guys,

    New to the forums here and I was wondering if anyone had an knowledge about fishing for bass in Pere Marquette Lake and Ludington Harbor. I'd like to target smallmouths but largemouths are still more than welcome.

    Should I just fish the breakwalls of the harbor and riprap in PM? What presentations should I use?

    Fished PM a little bit, never really got into bass, you may have better luck over at Hamlin Lake. Tight lines!

    I have a friend who loves bass fishing Hamlin. I haven't fished it myself but he claims it's good for both Largemouth and Smallmouth you just hit different ends of the lake.

    I have fished PM lots and I find the bass fishing and pike fishing to be really good. I use a dropshot on the dropoff and tear the smallmouth up. I have also done well on spy baits and just a simple tube.

    Thanks so much! I'll be giving that a try as soon as it decides to get warm out again!
