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.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Four days on Lake Michigan produced four different tournament leaders at the Bassmaster Elite Series Green Bay Challenge. But it was the leader at the end of todays final competition round who takes home the trophy, $100,000 in first-place prize money and an automatic berth in the 2013 Bassmaster Classic. That distinction belongs to Jonathon VanDam of Kalamazoo, Mich., who bested 97 of the best bass anglers in the world with a four-day catch of smallmouth bass weighing 79 pounds, 2 ounces.
Bass tournament fishing and NASCAR go together like beer and hot wings.
I get that, since both sports grew out of the south.
But NFL and bass fishing?
I didnt see it coming, but that bond was definitely there during the first-ever KVD/Lions Charity Bass Tournament near Detroit last week.
It was born a year ago out of a conversation between Kalamazoos Kevin VanDam, arguably the best pro bass angler on the planet, and Lions head coach Jim Schwartz, who has turned the NFL doormat into a pillar of super bowl hope and promise.
