Are there any smallmouth here. Or if so are there any good places for smallmouth near here?
Lake Michigan Bender Park, Milwaukee County

I too was already to go at 2 am and give her hell. I saw the dense fog advisory and said “nope”. It’s hard enough in dark but fog too... no thanks. Did it last year once and damn near had a nervous break down. I said never again. I agree, in a small boat with no radar it’s way too dangerous for me.
Thanks for the responses! I am going to hold off after checking some web cams. The fog looks pretty thick from Port to Kenosha. I agree with X-ray, went out once in it last year and didn't like it one bit, especially when I am in the small boat.
Bender park will be busy on the 4 th however. Oak Creek will be lighting off municipal fireworks at the new Lake Vista Park just to the north.
I got pushed off by the fog this AM. There was an open bubble from McKinley to Oak Creek which subsequently closed. It's pretty spooky to have a big boat go by that you can't see. I got off as I don't have radar. I've been caught out in the dark and fog. It is not a good place to be.
If you're launching from Bender, be aware that there's a dense fog advisory until 7pm tonight. Pretty limited visibility in MKE right now. FYI.
2 years ago launched at Bender for fireworks and had to park up top as the bottom was packed full and its an easy ride to MKE. Launched yesterday Mckinley and fished in front of PP...... so saying it wont be crowded well....
Bender is also a long ride to deep water!! Seems like not much in close anymore. Good luck and hope you get a few.
Bender is a LONGGGG ride for the fire works.. you shouldn't have any problems there...
Bender wont be busy. You'll be fine regardless of when you launch.
