Please post your openning (bass season) weekend results.

If you can, include the lake / area you fished and the water temperature / spawning stage the bass were in.

Be interesting to see how things went with the bad weather and all.

haven't been out today had to work!:sad: but hope to get out tuesday(rain).
The weekend is NOT over!! I've been out once. Got a couple decent ones... got piked off a couple times... etc... no beds.
I'll check back into this thread tomorrow afternoon, ezyeric. I hit the river from shore a couple times and it is not "on" real good right now for me but may go back here in a little while. Tomorrow I will be doing some bass fishing.
Hate to tell you C & R guys but my 87 year old WWII vet neighbor actually likes bass and wants some filets, I feel obligated to help him out. So I'll be after them tomorrow ;) get back to ya.
Good luck y'all!
We went to a friends private pond that they only keep a handful of bass out a season to build them up in there. We took home these two and tossed back about 5 more. Also took 2 pike from there and a few bluegills.



^ that one is mine. I really did try to hold it but it didn't happen. Hey I baited my hook for it.

Hubby caught this one
Today was poor in the morning, just got one fish each and not a lot of action by anyone else.
kicked some large mouth ass sun. morning, got up about 6:30am and no rain.hit a local lake and headed to spawning beds.And with the bread-n-butter yamamoto senko landed 10 or so most on the small sizebut a couple good ones.Went canoeing with the wife today down the huron river out of milford,small bass and at the end of the trip BAM a 4lb. small mouth all n all a pretty good weekend.:coolgleam
Fished Muscamoot Bay for the day. Went looking for some gills but only caught a couple bass. They were tight up into the reeds. Caught them on a green/yellow Super Roostertail with green blade. Brother was using black spinner/silver blade and they didn't seem to want it. Two big guys got off as soon as they were hooked. I only landed some small bass and a hammerhandle.
Went out for 2 hours this afternoon to local lake. caught 12 bucket mouths, biggest was only 2 lbs. all up shallow. lost a few to boot. pretty good action. now its off to Houghton Lake for 3 straight days for non - stop bass fishing :D
Saterday bass!!
17.5 in
19.5 in 4.5 pounds!
caught several 15s and smaller but onley kept these two!!


Ok Ok I know it wuz cancelled, since I studied it... out I went.

Showed up at 7am...waited till 9am. Some light rain but at least no lightning :yikes:

Fished five hours. Learned my studies arent for beans, :sad:

Brought the hound, what a wet floppy eared trooper he was...:bowdown:

I will fish Big Lake again.

concerning the schedule....NEXT :D

Went out yesterday morning with a few family members for some shore fishing at Stony Creek metro park. I caught 4 bucketmouths and two pike. Bass were caught on tubes, curly tail grubs and chart/watermelon spinner baits. Pike were both caught on spinner baits. The people I was with unfortunatly didn't catch anything. But we still had fun. I did see some other people catch some pike on the pier. It was a beautiful morning. We were there for about 4 hours. All fish were released.
I was at my cabin in the U.P. this weekend in Curtis, MI. The bass were prespawn/spawn with water temps averaging in the low 60s. We caught around 85 largemouth from 12"-16" but most were 12-14". We got skunked on smallmouth, I think the colder weather pushed 'em out deeper, so we just stuck with the largies:coolgleam
i caught around 30 on friday. photos in my gallery.
Fished Waterfouls honey hole friday afternoon till dark and managed to land maybe 40 or so smallies, 5 pike, and 1 bonus walleye between 2 people.
Fished in Lake Huron for smallmouth over the weekend (Sat-Mon) and caught 123. Fish are in Pre-Spawn/Spawning stage right now with water temperatures around 60 degrees.:fish: :fish:
Were you out in the morning? My girlfriend and I went Kayaking in the morning (9:30 - 12) and saw a few people fishing. The water was really stagnant looking. I did see a few decent sized gills, but didn't check any of the coves fo bass. We kayaked to the Milford parade. It was a really nice day out there for sure.

My 12 year old son caught his first bass Sunday. He had been begiing to "put a lure on" and fish for bass. Funny thin is, he caught this one on a waxworm while fishing for 'gills. Times like this are priceless.
