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.

You cant blame district fisheries biologist Jed Pearson for being excited when we talked about muskies earlier this week.
The Indiana biologist who oversees the muskie program had just spent the day at the Fawn River Hatchery tagging 1,500 young fish that were stocked in Lake Webster Thursday.
Indiana biologist Jed Pearson tags a young walleye for a Webster Lake stocking.
Its the kickoff of a new program that Pearson believes will revive the popular, yet slumping fishery. Webster was one of the top muskie destinations in the Midwest 10 years ago but stocking efforts the past few years have produced disappointing results.
Anglers catch their fair share of trophy muskie these days but not many small ones. Thats an indication that something has gone awry.

Take Last week, for example. Sturgis, Mich. angler Mark Zona, host of Zonas Awesome Fishing Show, invited me to partake in the early spring action hes been enjoying since the ice left our lakes.
We launched around 8:30 on a Michigan lake that crisp morning and immediately went to the deep areas where he had great success.
