Bass Fishing Trips To Michigan

Michigan, the metro Detroit area, is a surprising location for great bass fishing trips. While many fishermen would not think to take a bass fishing expedition to the state of Michigan, there are several great areas for fine bass fishing. Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie, Saginaw Bay, and several inland lakes offer some of the best small mouth bass fishing anywhere. Fishing in Michigan takes place from April through December and the seasons provide different kinds fishing opportunities.

Bass fishing trips from early spring through the spawn are usually very productive. There is exciting fishing at this time of year. Many fish are visible, and they are interested in fishing baits like the super flukes and spinner baits. With these baits, it is a prime time to catch fish. The spring weather makes it a great destination for enjoyable fishing.

Fish are generally found in deeper water as the fish settle into their summer routines. By mid summer they are schooled and feeding heavily. Your bass fishing trips at this time of year can yield twenty five to forty fish per day. The average fish weighs almost seven pounds.

During fall, small mouth bass start feeding aggressively. They are best found in the shallows. Some of the biggest fish of the year can be caught as the ice over approaches because this is when fish are looking to feed. There is a benefit to scheduling bass fishing trips at this time of year in Michigan, because there is little boat traffic. You have most of the fishing areas to yourself. However, cold weather gear is necessary for these trips, and may deter fishermen who arenít accustomed to cold water fishing. It can be a frigid experience in Michigan during the winter season because of the winds and temperatures.

Bass fishing trips are available for different bodies of water throughout Michigan, particularly for small mouth bass. The Grand Traverse Bay, Thunder Bay, Bay De Noc and countless other Great Lakes Ports offer often untouched fishing opportunities. Also for small mouth fishing Michigan has top-notch inland lakes.

The Detroit River also offers opportunities for walleye fishing in addition to bass fishing. This is where fish in massive numbers migrate up the Detroit River from Lake Erie in the spring.

For the white bass fishing the best time period to go is May through mid June on Lakes Erie and St. Clair. This is also a great time for top water bass fishing opportunities. At this time is where spawning white bass are making their way up the river. These fish are eager to bite at anything resembling a minnow so this makes fishing simple and easy during this time.
