I lived in the city my whole life and never fished the lakefront. Now I live in the country and want to fish for smallies. Anybody know if they're coming in yet?

What country do you live in? :lol:

In all seriousness, there's a lot of guesswork we'd have to do that you can help us with if you let us know where you live. Town name is sufficient to get some help.

I live near dekalb. So I fish the south branch of the kishwaukee for smallies. But I want to try Lake Michigan for some big girls and before I make the drive I was just wondering if anyone's had any luck or seen them in the harbors and what not.

I talked with a guy who swore the place to go for smallies on Lake MI is down past 95th St. Way too far for me to go but if you're committed it might be the spot.

But the ambiance along the Kish beats the snot out of the Chicago skyline for my money.
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
