The 7 Best Places To Fish In The Midwest
The Midwestern portion of the U.S. churns out some of the most avid fishermen in the country. From successful pro anglers to weekend tournament fishermen to pond hoppers, there are anglers wetting a line all around the region. We asked around and polled some of those anglers to find out the best places to fish in the Midwest.
1. Mille Lacs, Minnesota
While Mille Lacs may be known to many as a "walleye factory," the potential to land trophy smallmouth bass on this 132,000 acre lake (the 2nd largest inland lake in the state) should never be overlooked.
* Fishidy Tip for Mille Lacs:“Wind-swept reefs and rock piles can be magnets for smallmouth bass. Shallow running crankbaits or jig/plastic combinations in orange and brown that mimic crayfish will produce.”
2. Lake St. Clair, Michigan
Lake St. Clair offers outstanding fishing opportunities for a diversity of species including muskie, walleye and yellow perch, but it is most widely recognized as one of the nation's great trophy smallmouth bass fisheries. This national recognition landed it on our list of the best places to fish in the Midwest. Check out the lay of the land via Fishidy:
