BIG RAPIDS – The transition from July to August fishing is expected to be a good one.
In Mecosta County, “I ran a couple of trips here the last few days,” Tom Vernon of Frank’s Sporting Goods in Morley, said. “We were fishing the lower stretches of the Muskegon River and doing really well on smallmouth, walleyes and some rainbows. I know some of the inland lakes, they’re catching some bluegills out deep. The bait is going to be redworms or crickets. Bass fishing is still holding up pretty good.”
