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.
