Tough fishing on Lake Michigan

Of course, the reason the consecutive limit streaks are falling so fast right now is that the fishing has been pretty tough. In the average Elite Series tournament, the average angler brings just better than 4.5 bass to the scales each day. That's the norm.


Here in Green Bay, the average angler has been bringing just 3.9 bass to the scales each day. That's very, very low. In fact, it's easily the worst of this season. The average size bass here on Lake Michigan is not bad (about 2-12 — which is average in Elite Series competition), but there just aren't enough of them.


The average catch brought to the scales this week in Green Bay is 10-10, which is easily the lowest of the season.
