  1. Detroit River and Lake Erie
    I'm sure many of you will recognize this area. I'd put money on it. lol Here is a fall bass fishing trip on Erie when the chop was a little rough. Ended up putting a good day in where everybody launches their boat. Hopefully it might get you a little excited to get the boat back out on...
  2. Warm Water Fishing Inland LP Lakes
    I put together a video from this past fall with my buddy Jim on the Portage Chain in Pickney Michigan. Seen the craziest thing while were out there fishing in 35 degree weather. Guy was riding around on a hover board just above the water in full Michigan football entire. Captured that on...
  3. Detroit River and Lake Erie
    Here is a new Lake Erie Fishing video from this past fall. There are some different areas than you have seen in the past videos. It was a short, but very productive trip. If you watch the video with your phone you should be good. If you watch with your computer, ipad, or T.V. You will want...

    I'll start off with a quick question. Has anyone fished Thumb Lake in the Spring for bass? It hit last month for the first time, and I must say it's one of the most beautiful lakes to be on. I think the only way I'd fish it again would be in the spring when the bass start to move up. The...

    Short 3 1/2 hours fishing on Walloon, but it was good. That lake is yet to diappoint me when I'm in the area.
  6. Detroit River and Lake Erie
    Little video I put together from last week. Few tips might help you on your next trip when the water is muddy. Took a little while to piece a solid pattern together. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/fishtalkfishingreports/viewtopic.php?f=658&t=13774
  7. Detroit River and Lake Erie
    Choices to make between fishing the muddy water or the clean water up near the river. I ended up fishing both and found some bass in both, but the bigger ones were definitely easier for me to find in the dirty water. Did find a big school of smallmouth on the river too. Beautiful day to be on...

    I hit the Portage Chain this morning. The bite was pretty good! Planning on putting a video together and sharing it with ya, but in the meantime I posted a pic at the link below. Plus I came across something really odd at the ramp. Maybe it's just me, but I've never seen them before like...
  9. Warm Water Fishing Inland LP Lakes
    I grew up on this lake and they use to stock trout every year. I believe the stocking the stopped just a few years ago due to the northern pike being introduced into the lake. I caught the first one that the DNR knew about in there and forwarded that information to them. Little did I know...

    Buddy just posted a Paw Paw report. I was wondering if anyone has been doing any good on that lake? I haven't fished it in probably a year. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/fishtalkfishingreports/paw-paw-lake-5-9-2020-t13719.html#p90925
  11. Warm Water Fishing Inland LP Lakes
    I finally finished the video from this past Friday fishing Wamplers Lake. Caught some smallmouth and largemouth. Several rock bass too, but didn't include them in the video. Water temp was 59. If you click the bottom right of the video it will make it full screen. Hover your mouse and it...

    Do you guys have a favorite go to swimbait or brand you prefer. This video below will show you some of my favorite ones to use. I have specific ones for the northern lakes, and specific ones I like to use on St. Clair and Lake Erie. Thinking about expanding and trying a couple different ones...

    No safe ice! Bummer in southern Michigan. Here's a little video to help ya get through the weekend. This was a fishing trip with my buddy Kevin to a small lake I grew up on in Southern Michigan. Kevin taught me a new technique for catching those cold front bass.
  14. Warm Water Fishing Inland LP Lakes
    I had plans to fish with a good friend on Lake Erie last week. That didn't work out due to the weather. We went inland to Lake of the Woods in Coldwater Michigan. We managed some bass in those extreme conditions, but were surprised the lake had walleye and really big ones! Bonus catches for...
  15. Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River
    I had time to put together a little video from St. Clair. If your looking for action near shore this video will show you some locations to target. Those summertime smallmouth tend to roam all over the place, but there are still plenty close the Michigan side. Here are some locations that are...
  16. Warm Water Fishing Inland LP Lakes
    I had the pleasure of fishing with a good friend of mine Brad Jones. He showed me some new electronics of his called Livescope. You can cast your lure or bait out and watch it come back into the boat. You can even see if a fish is following behind it. Pretty amazing the technology they are...
  17. Warm Water Fishing Inland LP Lakes
    I was curious if anyone on here has fished Lake Diane before? I've read lots of reports and even some from the Michigan DNR that say the lake has the potential to produce the state record largemouth bass. It's extremely stained and the bass are few and far between. My buddy Jim and I took a...
