    Lake St Clair?

    Anyone ever fish it? It looks like boat access can be a bit of a pain, I've never been there so that's just from reading on the net. I only know a couple of guys that have fished it, and they all loved it for smallies. Just curious if any on you have been there and have any insight to share.

    What's your target lake, this year?

    I want to try out some new waters this year. Lake Erie is one lake that I'd like to try, perhaps along Metzger's Marsh area. Kiser Lake isn't new for me, but I plan on spending more time there. Also, my brother and I want to plan a 2 day trip to try out some of the A.E.P. lakes, with our...

    Indian Lake

    I've never fished it, but every time I've been by (and it used to be a couple times a week), I wanted to. A buddy bought a house on the lake this summer and has invited us up. This has put it on my mind a bit. Anyone here fish it? Its supposed to be a good perch and saugeye lake...two...

    A slow day at Kiser Lake

    My brother and I went to Kiser Lake this morning and got on the water around 9 a.m. This lake has an excellent atmosphere/surroundings and whether you catch anything or not, it's a great time on the water. :smiley_bril: Deer wading out into the water eating water plants, ospreys and eagles...

    Calling all inland lake fly fishermen!

    I think that right now I'm really thinking about wanting to get into a fly rod. Where do I start? I don't need the top of the line gear and if I had to set a budget for starting out I would hope to stay around $100 for a good time...I don't even know if that sounds reasonable or not...

    Lima Lake Crappies

    I've not had any luck catching anything at Lima Lake, but decided to give it another shot, this evening. It took me most of the evening to figure out what they were hitting on, but I finally found something they liked...about an hour before dark. I was using a 1/8oz. jig with a purple twister...

    Kiser Lake 3/10?

    Kiser Lake

    I took my new kayak to Kiser Lake and went fishing. The wind was out of the east at 10 to 20 m.p.h., clear skies and it was about 78 degrees. The fishing sucked...until some cloud cover rolled in in the afternoon, then the fishing improved. I caught 2 bluegills and 3 bass...2 of the bass were...
