Thunder Bay - Alpena
« on: May 29, 2012, 11:37:25 AM »

Hi Everyone,

New to the forum and very first post.

I will be in Alpena the first week of July and have heard that Thunder Bay and the surrounding Lake Huron waters in the area have some good smallmouth fishing.  I am not looking for any specifics, just any general information or experience that anyone might have for fishing this area, that they are open to share.

Thank you,

Wags

  Welcome to the site !!!!!  Sorry, but I am unable to help.  I did fish Thunderbay years ago, but it was in the fall after a major cold front and it was terrible fishing.  :(

Rock bars to the North of the river mouth. Shallow. Be careful. When the smallies are there, they are big and dumb. They are on some of the shallower wrecks too. Many of the wrecks are marked. Large bay to the South a ways that can be good. I haven't fished that one myself so I don't know about the rocks or when the bass are most likely to be in there.

Lots of beautiful looking water with few or no smallies but when you find them, you find a good bunch of them.
