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.

KVD with a St. Clair Smallmouth
There is no better bait for catching big fish this time of year. Weve got a lot of fronts coming through and those weather changes tend to invigorate the bass. We also get a little more wind and that makes spinnerbait fishing even better.
The bass are moving off the deep structure and onto the flats. Instead of cruising the deep weedlines, they often suspend on the grassy drops and are moving toward shallower water.

Michiana bow hunters were greeted to a double-edge sword when their season opened this week.
On the bright side, theres the decent weather in the forecast, and more importantly, an early crop harvest which is driving some deer out of the cornfields.
On the downside, theres that nasty EHD virus that likely will reduce the size of the herd in many areas of Michiana.
