Mine would be

Kent Lake Paper T Early May

St Clair every other weekend through August

Kent Lake October and November.

Not very interesting, i know.  But these are the only 2 lakes i fish regularly.  But for good reason.  I cant catch fish on any other lakes.

Any lake, any time, long as I have a chance a making more then a grand in cash.
Love Erie from July on, my night mare from late June thru mid July, I hope to change that this year. I have been paterning the smallies this winter, and I think I found the missing key which has hamperd my fishing after the spawn. Will wait to see......

We'll talk northwest Michigan only. Us West siders have to pick up cans to afford gas to get over to smallmouth heaven.
Portage Lake in Onekama Opener-but any lake over here from the opener till third week of June will produce good to great weights.
Crystal Lake in Beulah mid June
Anywhere around Traverse- Long, Duck, Green, Leelanau, Skegmog, Torch, Elk
The bay around the 4th of July and or mid to late September
Hamlin Lake in Ludington - any time for a big weigh in
Cadillac and Mitchell get hammered all year and still produce good weights every year.
Manistee Lake can be fickle, but lately has produced some great weights
Some guys like Hardy Dam early, but in the summer the boat traffic takes all the fun out of it.
