Summer at its Finest

The past few weeks have been awesome up here!  Great warm weather, great conditions on the water and happy fish!  We're in full summer mode in terms of the bite out there right now and in terms of smallmouth fishing, that means there's some fish deep and some fish shallow.  For deep fish, look for sharp drop offs, current points, deep weeds and rocks.  Shallow fish can be found early and late in the day on nearshore structure, or current points.  Summer is a favorite time of year for smallmouth as the fishing pressure is low and there's lots of water to fish.  

Lake Trout fishing has been steady with eater sized fish being found on the "flats" and bigger fish being caught further out into the islands.  Spin and glows or spoons run right on the bottom are picking up fish.
