Smallmouth Bass

Jammed up

Muskegon River smallmouth bass fishing was a little odd today in my boat. The river seemed to be void of fish in some areas while others were jammed up with fish. I haven’t really seen it quite like this over the last several trips. Obviously...

Dirty Water Smallmouth Bass

The Muskegon River is on the rise and heavily silted from the numerous rounds of thunderstorms this week. Despite these tough dirty-water conditions Kris found success with her top-water poppers. Conditions will likely be challenging for the next several days before the river settles down...
