Recently I was presented with the opportunity and great privilege to fish with CLF's one and only Bassin' Larry.

Not wanting to let Him down and with Sturgeon Bay occupied by the SBOBT, the decision was made to go check out LSC for the first time and give the smallies that live there a whirl.

En route we stopped somewhere around Battle Creek for some fuel and sustenance. When I went in, I was stopped dead in my tracks at the sight of this awesomeness.



The mammoth apple fritter. The mother of all apple fritters. All for the low, low price of $1.49. Cha ching.



I'm guessing it went close to 4lbs and if I was thinking straight I would have put it on the digital scale to confirm.

For me, the trip could have ended right then and there as I knew it would be difficult to top this.

Nonetheless,we pressed on and arrived at our destination, launching just north of 13 mile road.



Greeted by some wind and temps in the low to mid 50's, we started out fishing deeper (>10FOW) in search of some pre-spawn fish.



















Day 2 with nicer conditions but more of the same, ho hum.





















In ascending order in terms of their effectiveness, a Vision 110, Tubes and this little bait swum just ticking the bottom did the damage.





In summary, lots and lots and lots (did I mention lots?) of 4 - 5 lbers live here. Our work is done.

I'm well aware of the regulations, those were my stomping grounds from the time I was 5 years old...did you know that pike are perfectly legal? and that it's **** near impossible to keep the ski's away this time of year? And that trolling is a very effective manner in which to catch bass, walleye and pike? DNR cannot bust you for trolling...especially smallish cranks. You care to share with me the new bass regs for this year while you're at it?
Happy for ya man, glad you've been fishing there since you were 5. With fritters like that I'd have never moved. This was my first trip there. Thanks for the tip, but I don't troll. And when I'm bass fishing I could give a rats a$$ about pike. I'm sure trolling is fantastically effective; just not my cup of tea. Sounds like you are well versed in all the regs so I'm sure you really don't need me to regurgitate those for you. Good luck, look forward to your reports :)2 .

Baits were selected:



Though smoking has largely fallen from society's good graces, all is not lost. Smokers can retain their freedom by using smokeless, odorless Blu Electronic Cigarettes:



Nutrition garnered:



Secret spot:



Time to fish, pre-spawn with no fish shallow, everything was deep, 1/2 oz tubes, 1oz C-rig in the wind did most of the damage:



Several brutes were retracted



Gorgeous speciman...fish is not bad either



Beauty in the eye of the beholder






BL grew tired of catching smallies:



Bringing sexy back:
