    Hey guys, I am wondering if anybody would be willing to share some advice on smallmouth fishing in the saginaw bay or river. Anything helps (locations of rock piles, what you've done in the past, bait selection, literally anything)
  3. South East Michigan Streams and Rivers
    Good morning gentlemen - I'm going for a float on the Huron River tomorrow at Island Lake. Would I be wasting my time if I tried fishing for some smallmouth or pike while on the river? Are they biting at all right now? If yes, any tips on lures / baits / presentation? I have a little bit of...
  4. 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 have 3 fly rods an 8wt, 9wt and 5 wt. I fish for salmon and steelhead in the spring and fall.

In the summer I do a lot of pike/musky...

    Going to be my first full year of bass fishing. Last year I targeted river smallies in early summer to early fall in the Saginaw area and Port Huron area.
