About GreatLakesBass.com

Dan Big Spring Largemouth Bass                                      Welcome to GreatLakesBass.com, operated by
                                      Dan Kimmel, a Michigan-based angler who fishes
                                            for anything that bites, but most of my time is
                                           spent pursuing my favorites - largemouth and
                                       smallmouth bass.  Bass tournaments are my real
                                  passion. GreatLakesBass.com has info on my own
                                 tournament and fishing activities. But also contains
                                  so much more      with the popular Bass Forum 
                                                                                a favorite destination on
                                                                                the web site. You'll find a
                                                                                whole bunch of your
                                                                                fellow anglers there, all
                                                                                in a very friendly and
                                                                                informative atmosphere
                                                                                hard to find on the online
                                                                                fishing world. You'll also 
                                                                                find fishing reports, tips,
                                                                                articles, pictures, links
                                                                                and lots of product info
                                                                                from a diverse community
                                                                                of dedicated anglers.

                                                                                Of course, I also believe we need to give back some of what we get out of the outdoors. You'll find bass biology, conservation and legislation issues covered on GreatLakesBass.com. I've been involved in outdoor issues, such as changing our bass season, for over 20 years. I was the Michigan BASS federation conservation director for over 10 years. Now I'm involved in getting our new The Bass Federation of Michigan (a TBF-affiliate) going, and hold the positions of Vice President and Conservation Director for this new organization.

 - Saginaw Bay
 - Burt & Mullett Chain (the Inland Waterway)
 - Elk - Torch Chain
 - Lake Ovid
 - Upper & Lower Crooked Lakes (Barry Co)
 - Grand River – Lansing
 - Gull Lake (MI)
 - Secord & Wixom Lakes
 - Hardy Dam Pond
 - Green Bay/Sturgeon Bay
 - Chautauqua Lake
