Well the bite on Hamlin lake is on in a big way. Spent a day and Hamlin lake with a good friend from Captain Chuck's bait shop, and really got into the nice bluegills and bass. The lake is in full blown bite mode as bass and all species of panfish are now jumping in the boat. We located the pan fish in 5 to 7 feet of water on shallow shorelines and breaks. The fish seem to be relating to cabbage weed as they get ready to spawn. The bass are mixed it right in with the bluegills, which is typical at this time of year. We caught most of our Fish on simple bobber, split shot and hook rigs. Good old reliable earthworms where our bait of choice. Wax worms and small spinners like beetle spins also work great at this time of the year. If you're going to Fish specifically for bass, I would suggest throwing rubber worms. Sinking worms with very little or no weight would be my suggestion, the bass are in the shallows in the same area as the blue gills, and they should be getting to spawn soon. Get out on Hamlin lake in Ludington and enjoy an awesome weekend on the water it's that time of year
