Default Newbie from Michigan

Hi all,

I'm a new member who has been FF for a couple of years now. I've spent 99% of my time fishing for smallies in southern Michigan, but I'm looking to start going after trout more this year. I'm a couple hours away from some good water in northern Mi, but I'm planning on making the trip as many times as my wife will let me this year.

I'm looking forward to spending time on these forums and hopefully you won't mind some stupid questions.

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Welcome to the forum. We have many members from Michigan. Nothing wrong with catching Smallmouth. Two hours away is not too bad. This is what I use to do. Leave Saturday afternoon and fish the evening bite and camp overnight. Get up early and fish the morning bite and then head home. This gives you an evening and morning bite and makes it a worthwhile trip. Gas cost too much to go and come on the same day.

Frank
