Number 57
Lake Michigan,Indiana
43 miles of shoreline
Indiana has the smallest share of this lake compared to any other U.S. state that borders it. That said, the state’s recent shoreline development (riprap and breakwaters) has launched great smallie fishing.

                With unpredictable weather forecasts, there were twelve fishermen who mustered up the courage to head out to the lake.  Wind, down pouring rain and cold didn’t stop fish from being caught.  This tournament proved that quality rather than quantity was the key for many of the anglers.  The first place team of Joe Chiarella and Rich Hulen brought in five fish weighing 17.69 lbs.  The second place team of Zack Seyller and Kevin Seyller brought back three fish that weighed 10.31 lbs.  The winners of the big bass award for the tournament, weighing 4.52 lbs., went to the team of Scott Stutler and John Blunk.

We also want to thank Solar Bat Sunglasses and Windy City ThunderBolts for donating to our raffles.  We had two drawings for Solar Bat Sunglasses and one drawing for ThunderBolts tickets.  Our winners of the Solar Bat Sunglasses went to Sam Beck and John Blunk.  The winner of the ThunderBolts tickets went to Ed Czerwinski.
