My family recently purchased some land in the area just east of Wausaukee, with access on the Menominee River. Last few times I've been up here, I've taken a friend out in kayaks and a boat. We launched our boat at the access point off River Rd (off of Pike River Rd), to give you an idea of where we are. (45.367899, -87.879072)

We did pretty good on smallmouth, with a nice fat 17" fish being caught. However fun the smallmouth are, I'm just curious about the variety of fish we can expect in the stretch of river we are in. I really haven't fished in rivers, so even learning techniques to fish in the current is new to me.

Thanks!

Well done Polski. I assume you were not in the river. Was there for Fathers Day and did not do very well.

Fished last night from 8 till midnight, I figured with the full moon the eyes should be biting. Only got 2, an 18" and this 28.5" (CPR). Nice night out and only 3 other trailers at the launch.

Anyone know of a place within the area to buy large sucker minnows? The 10" variety I'm talking about.

A good guide for the Menominee River is Mike Mladnik, I highly recommend him. Fished with him before and most likely will get him this summer to put the wife on some good smallies.
