If you are used to fishing Erie for smallies then fishing around here will be a major downgrade. I have fished Door Co and Grand Traverse Bay quite a bit over the last 6-7 years and you can just stumble onto great fishing in those places. I doubt you'll have much sustained luck trolling around here. You gotta put in your time and learn every time you go out. Guys are tight-lipped about catching them out there which is why you rarely ever see reports. I have caught some very nice ones around here but it pales in comparison to what I have done up north.

Here's one tip- retie often. Jagged busted up rock frays line quickly. I retie more and lose more tackle around here than I do fishing anywhere else.
