Have the smallmouth bass finished spawning yet?

Will you be heading out for smallmouth bass fishing this weekend?

Good Luck

Dave

My guess is most of the smallies are on their beds or on their way to their beds. There may be a few fish on the rock piles as well.

We were trollling some crank baits last weekend and went around the inside of Doe Island and then circled the shallow water by Appledorns. Stopped in 5' of water to change rapalas and casted out a #7 silver minnow, and as soon as it hit the water, the fight was on. pulled in a 16-17" smalley.

Looked to be shallow rocks and sand in that area.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
