Fished 5 new places for me this year. Ice fished Higgins lake... caught smelt and a cisco. Fished a tiny little creek, said to have brookies... caught chubs. Fished off the Petoskey pier... caught smallmouth and too many gobies. Night fished the Grand in the boat... caught smallmouth, suckers, rock bass, and a nice channel cat. Fished at Tippy dam... caught a rotting king. It’s a good thing I had so much success at most of the new places I tried, cause all of my usual spots blew this year. Hardly any trout at my regular trout’n spot. Caught almost jack squat for large mouth bass this year compared to previous years. My most productive spot received a weed treatment recently, and a 5 bass per trip spot is now a 5 trips per bass kinda location. Caught much bigger bluegill than normal this year in a regular spot, so that was good, but never enough of them in a single sitting where I felt like taking them home, so over the side went the live well most times.
