Port Austin 6-4-2010


Recommended Posts

Wasn't really fishing for walleye, but it was surely a welcomed change. My dad and I were casting for smallmouth in the harbor of Port Austin near the stone breakwall at dusk when this nice four pounder bit my jigging spoon. I thought it wasn't fighting like a bass and I thought I was going to do a backflip when I landed him. He's going to taste good for dinner tomorrow!

Nice job Peter. Did you catch any smallies?

We caught a few smallies. We caught about 15 near the breakwall before I hooked into this walleye. After the big rain on Memorial day, the lake muddied up and the smallmouth bite really turned off.

Nice Job! :thumb:

We did (2) 2-man limits trolling with harnesses off dowriggers 25'-30' down and in-line boards with 1.oz wgts back 80' Sat. and Sun. Chartruese or Orange blades seemed the best. 3-4lb. fish. Great eaters.
