Title: Lake Charlevoix Smallmouth Fishing
Post by: Bigbass201 on May 30, 2021, 02:33:48 AM
My buddy Jim had an earlier vacation this year than prior years we went up north. We figured it shouldn't affect to fishing to much, but man we wrong there. Finding the fish pre-spawn was much more difficult. Weather patterns were terrible to fish in as well. This particular day (May5th) the water surface temperature as running 43 degrees and air temperature in the morning was 29 degrees. It was a real roll of the dice this year going early. Each day we fished was a grind, but we did manage to catch some decent smallmouth and walleye, but certainly not in the numbers we would have liked. I'm headed back up in about 3 weeks. I'm thinking the fish will be post spawn then. I may have to try Traverse Bay or Little Traverse. This Charlevoix video below has some aerial views of the lake, underwater shots, and of-course some good fish catches. (
