The battle on Lake Maxinkuckee was a rough one for a lot with the 15 mph + winds. The bite wasn’t as active as it normally is and some anglers found success.
Ben Harrison and Nicci Heneke (Portage, MI.) caught a quality limit of smallmouth in the CastingCouples tourney on Paw Paw Lake, giving them an easy win.
The couple had the only limit of smallmouth in the tournament and it weighed 15.82 pounds to earn them $215. They said they caught a 3-pound smallmouth on their fourth cast and began targeting them all day. It was their first time on the lake.
Z-Man made fishing fans happy this week by delivering fresh packs of Hella CrawZ to outdoors retailers across the continent.

Its all speculative now, as the DNR will take this proposal and others through the public comment period to receive input.

Fall surveys conducted by the Indiana DNR last month revealed better-than-average success of fish stocked by the DNR and the Michiana Walleye Association in 2011.
Biologist Neil Ledet spent October evenings cruising shallow river areas between Elkhart and Twin Branch dams with electro-shock equipment looking for one-year-old fish. The fish were temporarily stunned, captured, counted, measured and released.
