My wife @kaisnow has a talent for both vision and execution in designing things. (Give her a follow!) After a number of people this summer asked for business cards and I had none, she took it upon herself to make some for me...they are professional and eye-catching to say the least! Thank you for supporting me! If you are interested, PM me and she can whip up some for you too! #bestwifeever #teammates #businesscards #fishingguide #marcelsguideservice #ryansaidfishing #smallbusiness

@erice360 joined my for our yearly fall Erie trip. It was a cold, damp, overcast day but we managed to avoid the rain. We went through a lull in the action around mid-day but was able to book-end the day several hours of steady bites from fat fall Lake Erie smallmouth! Our most productive presentation was a dropshot with a Big D in new color from @lurecraft called Smallmouth Snot...they ate it up!
Dropshot tackle: @dobynsrods Sierra Series 702 spinning rod, @lews_fishing Pro Speed Spin reel, and 15lb P-line TCB-8 braid with a 10lb Tactical fluorocarbon leader.

Fun Sunday morning on Lake Charlevoix. We were able to catch fish from 3ft. All the way out to 36. Most of our fish were taken on @strikekinglurecompany Coffee tubes with a few coming on drop shot as well. It was awesome to get out with @lj_bassfishing and my dad for the first time in over a year! ------------------------------------------

Huge thanks to Jennifer Wilbur and her son Jarrod for supporting Lawrence Tech fishing! They won the LTU Fishing Club raffle last year for a free guide trip with me and we were finally able to get them out on the lake after finding spots in our busy schedules. Both showed up to the dock with their Costa sunglasses, ready to fish! The Ned rig dominated! Because of the windy conditions we had to step up to a Dobyns Fury 702 rod with the 3/16 weight. This was the very rod won in the contest! Had a great time guys and thanks for supporting our college team! #dobynsdifference #ltufishing #highschoolfishing #collegebass @dobynsrods @lews_fishing @costabassfishing @costasunglasses @plinefishing @ltufish @lawrencetechu #lawrencetech #lawrencetech

For those of us who need to get the most out of our baitcasters either because we’re on a tight budget (me) or we fish a ton (also me)...if you have never cleaned a baitcaster, it’s pretty easy and here’s the first step. Makes them last much longer and keep them running smoothly! #cleanyourgear #reelcleaning #smoothbearings #longcast #lewsreels #costasunglasses #costabassfishing #dobynsdifference #pline #ltufishing @lews_fishing @dobynsrods @plinefishing @costabassfishing @costasunglasses

Out fishing with some friends tonight, @timmymason97 caught the biggest largemouth I have seen pulled out of the water in Michigan. Congratulations on your new PB!

Finally! Have several long months of post-surgery rehab, my friend @erice360 was finally able to join me for a day on St Clair. The morning started a little slow, but we made a long run mid-morning and proceeded to wail on them with a dropshot the rest of the day! As with many recent outings, critical to our success was being able to distinguish the bottom visually with our Costa’s, and being able to easily see fish on the graph with @humminbirdfishing Mega Imaging. Glad to finally have you back in the boat Eric! - - Tackle: Costa Blackfin & Fantail sunglasses, Dobyns Sierra Series 702 rod, Team Lees Speed Spin reel, 15lb P-line TCB-8 braid with an 8lb Tactical fluorocarbon leader. @costasunglasses @costabassfishing @dobynsrods @plinefishing @lews_fishing #giantsmallmouth #seewhatsoutthere #pline #costasunglasses #marcelsguideservice #lews #dropshot #dobynsdifference #dobynsrods #lewsreels #plinetactical #lakestclair #stclairguide #stclairsmallmouth #fishingguide #guidetrip #humminbird #humminbirdfishing #ryansaidfishing

Cliff & Jill hauled up here all the way from Louisiana for a business trip and decided to sneak in two days on Lake St. Clair. They were rewarded with some giant smallmouth and a few giant waves as well! With all three of us wearing our Costas we were able to see the correct bottom content and capitalize on it. We did equally well on dropshot and tube. Cliff prefered the tube and Jill prefered the dropshot...two great people and two fun days of fishing! •

Had the pleasure of guiding Tony and Gary from Little Rock… They made the trip all the way up here just to fish St Clair! The singular reason we caught fish this day was @humminbirdfishing Mega Imaging... fishing started out a little bit slow but I was able to scan areas and find the schools., even pinpoint the size of the fish. We put a hurting on them with over 23 pounds of fish in our best five!  We had both the tube and dropshot working. Tackle Selection — Dropshot: Dobyns Fury 702 spinning rod; Lews Mach II spinning reel; 15lb P-line TCB-8 braid with an 8lb P-line Tactical fluorocarbon leader — Tube: Dobyns Colt 702 spinning rod; Lews Mach Speed Spin reel; 15lb P-line TCB-8 braid with an 10lb P-line Tactical fluorocarbon leader. #humminbird #humminbirdfishing #megaimaging #dobynsfury #dobynscolt #dobynsrods #dobynsdifference @dobynsrods #lews #lewsreels #lewsmach2 @lews_fishing #pline #plinebraid #plinetactical @plinefishing #seewhatsoutthere #costasunglasses #costabassfishing @costasunglasses @costabassfishing #stclairguide #stclairsmallmouth #smallmouthbass #smallmouthguide #giantsmallmouth #ryansaidfishing #marcelsguideservice

Todd and Derek came up from Indiana to gain some insight on summertime smallmouth fishing. We caught over 30 fish and our best five weighed an amazing 26 lbs. 7 oz.! The @lurecraft Big D was the key tool today, fished on both dropshot and on a jighead. We caught a flurry of fish early and then steadily worked on them the rest of the day, picking up quality fish at each stop.

#whereveryougogoblue @uofmichigan dentistry school Alum Joe Cutrona brought his wife Ashley up from St. Louis to fish with this U of M School of Education Alum on Lake St Clair! We all caught some great fish and swapped tails of times and memories of Ann Arbor. We caught fish on a variety of baits, but the crankbait seemed most productive. Going to post some more info next week on some crankbait setups (and maybe videos eventually??) but I have started using the Colt Series 734 for some deep crank duties and it bagged a whole bunch of fish today! Thanks for coming up Joe and Ashley and forever GO BLUE!

Finally, something besides a dropshot got it done! A solo trip with Chad Carlson from Missouri resulted in his personal best smallmouth, a 5lb 1oz beast! The Ned Rig was the deal...not sure if it was the weekend fishing pressure or what, and although we did catch some on dropshot, the Ned was our primary producer. Thanks for coming out Chad!  Tackle: Dobyns Sierra Series 701 spinning rod, Lews Team Pro Speed Spin, P-line 15lb TCB 8-carrier braid with a 6lb Tactical fluorocarbon leader.  @dobynsrods @lews_fishing @plinefishing @costasunglasses @costabassfishing #dobynsrods #dobynsdifference #lews #lewsreels #pline #plinetactical #costagear #costasunglasses #costabassfishing #seewhatsoutthere #nedrig #finessefishing #dropshot #guidetrip #stclairguide #stclairsmallmouth #lakestclair #giantsmallmouth #personalbest #dobynssierra #lightlinefishing #marcelsguideservice #ryansaidfishing

Rough waters with rain made for a tough day on Lake Saint Clair but it didn’t stop us from catching a good bag!

Dave and Paul came up from Ohio for their first time in the big pond. Even though quantities of large fish eluded us that day, both avid anglers were able to catch a couple wall hangers, as well as average size fish all day long....not to mention several dinners worth of perch and walleye. Both said they would be back for a return trip!

Want to #seewhatsoutthere on Lake St Clair? How about this Kaiju from the breach! #pacificrim . Caught this 6lb 1oz beast a couple days ago...6-pounders are special fish! Caught him on a tube. In 2010 I ordered a @dobynsrods Champion Extreme 743 spinning rod for my tube fishing. The same week I received it I used it to finish third at a Bassmaster Northern Open on Erie. Eight years later it is still bringing in giants! Paired it with a @lews_fishing Mach Crush 400 (for the faster gear ratio), 15lb @plinefishing TCB braid and a 10lb Tactical fluorocarbon leader....what a fish!! #costasunglasses #costabassfishing #dobynsrods #dobynsdifference #lews #lewsreels #pline #plinetactical #stclairsmallmouth #guidetrip #stclairguide #giantsmallmouth #marcelsguideservice #ryansaidfishing

More first time smallmouth anglers! Brian started the day with a 5lb 8oz beast! Had a great time out there with Brian, Jim, and Brandon who all said they would definitely be back! Using our @costasunglasses and @humminbirdfishing Mega Imaging we were able to dial in on schools of fish holding in the right mixes of sand and grass. Our best 5 fish went well over 25lbs including a 6-1 that I was lucky enough to bag (more on that fish in a future post). Most of our fish again fell victim to the dropshot.  Tackle: Dobyns 702 Fury, Lews Mach II spinning reel, 15lb P-line TCB 8 carrier braid with an 8lb P-line Tactical fluorocarbon leader, Costa Blackfin sunglasses with the copper green mirror finish.

Is your first ever smallmouth bass supposed to be 4.5lbs? St. Clair spoiled Kansas boys Mike and Devin rotten! The father and son team both got their first smallmouths ever (Mike's was 4.5lbs) and bagged lots of good fish on our trip...and gave each other lots quality trash talk along the way! Every fish came on a dropshot with a @dobynsrods Fury 702 rod, @lews_fishing Mach II spinning reel, and 15lb @plinefishing TCB-8 braid with an 8lb P-line Tactical fluorocarbon leader.

Wrapped up three days of fishing with college anglers Branson and Lenny from Georgia. Covered a lot of water, caught a pile of fish, and did battle with St Clair rollers! The dropshot was by far and away the deal this week. Went through several bags of Lurecraft Big D's. Also bagged a few on a crankbait with the Dobyns Colt Series 705 CB. (Full tackle selection is below). Good luck with your studies the rest of the way gentlemen! Crankbait: @dobynsrods Colt Series 705 CB, @lews_fishing Tournament MB, @plinefishing Tactical fluorocarbon 12lb - - Dropshot: Dobyns Fury 702, Lews Mach II, P-line TCB-8 15lb braid with an 8lb fluorocarbon leader #stclairsmallmouth #lakestclair #seewhatsoutthere #costasunglasses #costabassfishing #dobynsrods #dobynsdifference #lews #lewsreels #pline #plinetactical #guidetrip #stclairguide #smallmouthbass #marcelsguideservice #ryansaidfishing

Pair of twin 5.5 lbers from today’s tournament, BUT mistakes were made! Most kids my age are making their mistakes at parties. I make mine on the water, lost at least one good one today that would’ve helped out big time. Either way finished up with 21.14lbs. and a fifth place check, hell of a day thank you @jt_fishingg ------------------------------------------

Sun was HOT! As you can see the lake was slick and you especially have to protect your eyes under those conditions...dad grabbed my @costasunglasses Salt Breaks with the copper green mirror 580 lenses and I had my Costa Blackfins...together with a serious application of SPF 50 and some giant smallies, we had a great day on the water! Have a bunch of guide trips coming up so was able to do some good scouting. Almost every fish we caught came on dropshot:
@dobynsrods 702 Sierra, @lews Team Pro Speed Spin, @plinefishing TCB-8 15lb braid with an 8lb Tactical fluorocarbon leader.

What a weekend! Had the chance to fish with friends and clients Ronnie Bradley and Jeff Hughs, and they brought a bunch of their buddies up as well, Trey, Willie, and Mike. Fishing was fantastic! Had to work hard with our @costasunglasses to see the beds in a lot of low light, slightly off water, but our largest fish came off beds. That was not the only thing working though...the swimbait was the weekend heavy hitter under cloudy skies. Conditions did not seem to matter though, the fish were eating! For the swimbait, we threw it on an @dobynsrods 1/4oz swimbait jighead, with a Dobyns Colt series 702 spinning rod, and @lews_fishing Mach Crush spinning reel. @plinefishing TCB 8 braid allowed us to make long casts and the 8lb Tactical fluorocarbon leader kept our baits inconspicuous on these heavily pressured fish.

The sun came out and the smalllies were chewing! Mitch and his son Ty joined me for a trip on Sunday. As with Saturday, we caught fish from 14 up to 6 feet. We caught them many different ways, including bed fishing. With the east wind, the water was slightly more stirred up which made our @costasunglasses that much more critical to our success in seeing the fish. Ty was making the two adults look silly in the first couple of hours with several heavy catches. Dad came back though late in the day with some great catches of his own. Always great to have parents taking their kids out! Here was our most productive setup: - @dobynsrods Fury 702 spinning rod
- @lews_fishing Mach II spinning reel
- 15lb @plinefishing TCB-8 braid with an 8lb P-line Tactical fluorocarbon leader
Also picked off a few on a soft jerkbait with a Dobyns Champion 705 casting rod, Team Lews Lite Speed Spool, and 15lb P-line Tacticsl fluorocarbon. There are few more fun ways to fish than with that setup in my humble opinion! #dobynsrods #seewhatsoutthere #guidetrip #lakestclair #dobynsdifference #lews #lewsreels #pline #plinetactical #bedfishing #marcelsguideservice #ryansaidfishing #costasunglasses #costabassfishing #stclairsmallmouth #smallmouthbass #dropshot

Fun times fishing with brother and sister Nan and Chad. Fishing is about many things, not the least of which is quality time with family. Nan had the biggest of the day at 4.5lbs...and made sure to let her brother know it! The fish came on a small swimbait with a @dobynsrods 702 Colt Series rod, @lews_fishing Mach Speed Spin reel, and @plinefishing TCB 8 braid with a Tactical fluorocarbon leader. We caught fish from 6 feet out to 14 and everywhere in between! Even plucked a few off beds using our @costasunglasses 580g lenses! #dobynsrods #dobynscoltseries #dobynsdifference #lews #lewsreels #pline #plinetactical #guidetrip #costabassfishing #costasunglasses #seewhatsoutthere #lakestclair #stclairsmallmouth #marcelsguideservice #ryansaidfishing

For late October there were a ton of boats out on the lake today. Loving that climate change I guess haha! Hit the water with friend and client @erice360 . Smallmouth never cease to amaze. We caught the bulk of our fish in a 200 foot span...in the middle of a 40+ square mile lake in 3 foot waves. We tried expanding on our area, but that 200 feet was key. I found the area yesterday with my dad (bonus shot of Fred included) and all they seemed to want was a tube, but Sunday it was all about the dropshot with a few on a swimbait. I got it handed to me by Eric with the dropshot! Dropshot was fished on a @dobynsrods Fury 702 spinning rod with a @lews_fishing Mach II spinning reel and 15lb @plinefishing TCB 8-carrier braid with an 8lb Tactical fluorocarbon leader. Every time we would make a pass we would get one or two. Took persistence on our part fishing rocky waters in a small area but we made it work and were rewarded with some beautiful fish! More to come on the swimbait setup in the off season....stay tuned! #lews #pline #lewsreels #dobynsdifference #dobynsrods #pline #stclairsmallmouth #ryansaidfishing #marcelsguideservice

St Clair has been a little stingy with numbers lately (at least where I have been fishing) but the size is definitely not lacking! The fish looked like they've been on a steady diet of beer and pizza! Spike and Leslie traveled from Texas to Detroit for a work event and decided to book a trip. Spike is an accomplished angler from Texas, recently having some very high finishes on the Bass Champs tour including an angler of the year title. Most of our fish were caught on a @dobynsrods Champion series 764 CB crank bait rod…the very best deep crankbait rod out there in my humble opinion. We paired it with a @lews_fishing Tournament MB 5.4:1  gear ratio reel and 15lb @plinefishing Tactical fluorocarbon. With the slightly stained water, we could throw the 15lb line with no problem it was nice to have that added extra assurance. We also added a few fish by throwing a drop shot in the direction where we missed a crank bait bite, including our biggest of the day. The drop shot fish came on a Dobyns Fury Series 702 spinning rod with a Lews Mach II spinning reel. It was also a multi species day… we caught large walleye, pike, sheephead, and catfish. #lews #pline #lewsreels #dobynsdifference #dobynsrods #ryansaidfishing #stclairsmallmouth #marcelsguideservice

Keepin my baits sacked up while in the locker means more time fishing and less time untangling. Thankfully the @calcoastfishing Bait Sack comes in sizes large enough to accommodate those pesky A-Rigs as well!

A trio of mountaineers came up from West Virginia to try their hand at Great Lakes smallmouth fishing. Brett, Matthew, and Josh have a lot of experience fishing for smallmouth in the rivers of West Virginia but had heard about our fat little meatball smallmouth up here and wanted to give it a shot. Aside from one near (hilarious) "man overboard" incident we had a good day! The morning started off pretty quickly with several good smallmouth, a good musky, and a 5lb catfish. Things slowed down for a couple of hours but picked back up in the afternoon. We ended in an area that I had not fished in two months but suspected it might be good with the cooling water and it was...while we did not catch as many numbers as I would've liked our best five top 23 pounds! There was lots of trash talking but all three guys managed to catch their personal best smallmouth. Thanks for coming up guys! Almost all of our fish were caught on drop shot with a @dobynsrods Fury 702 spinning rod and a @lews_fishing Mach II spinning reel. We spooled up with 15lb @plinefishing 8-carrier TCB with a 10lb leader of P-line Tactical fluorocarbon.  Like the tournament I fished yesterday though, our biggest fish came on a crankbait (love it!). I was using a Dobyn Fury 705 CB with my favorite crank (more info coming on that when it gets too cold to fish). The Dobyns Champion 764 CB and the Fury 705 CB handle 95% of my crankbaiting duties.
Looking forward to getting back out there soon! #stclairsmallmouth #ryansaidfishing #marcelsguideservice #dobynsrods #dobynsdifference #lews #lewsreels #pline #puremichigan #crankbaitaddiction

Typical calculations for a 19" smallmouth bass with a 14" girth put them at about 3.5lbs...but on St Clair the rules do not hold! Kevin caught us a 4lb 5oz beast with these dimensions....a full 3/4lb bigger than normal. On St Clair the combination of current and an abundant food source produces thick fish! Dan, Kevin, Ben, and Jake came all the way from Missouri to sample St Clair smallmouth fishing in a two boat trip with @m_fischer916. Dan and Kevin have been friends since high school which is super cool to see. The weather threatened at the beginning of the day but then treated us to a nice time on the water. The dropshot accounted for nearly every fish we caught. Caught them all on a @dobynsrods Fury Series 702 spinning rod, a @lews_fishing Mach II spinning reel, and 15lb @plinefishing 8-carrier TCB braid with an 8lb Tactical fluorocarbon leader. A @lurecraft Big D was on the business end...in the off season I will talk more about my dropshot setup and an important lesson I learned this year from @chad_pipkens ...never get to the point where you have it all figured out! Great job today guys! #stclairsmallmouth #pline #lews #dobynsrods #dobynsdifference #marcelsguideservice #ryansaidfishing #lurecraft

Great job today guys! #stclairsmallmouth  #pline  #lews  #dobynsrods  #dobynsdifference  #marcelsguideservice  #ryansaidfishing  #lurecraft 
Some pretty cool parents got Mason and Will a guided trip out on St. Clair today! These two young men are avid fisherman and did a great job out on the lake reeling in chunky smallmouth! We started the day in relatively shallow water, 10 to 11 feet, and ended the day out in deeper water, 16 to 18 feet. We had faster action in the shallower water with current related fish, but some of our better fish came a little bit deeper. It seemed like the swim bait was better up shallow, but the dropshot and crankbait shined out deep. We used the usual spinning rod combination for both drop shot and small swimbait, but I tried a slightly larger swim bait with my @dobynsrods champion 764C Rod, @lews_fishing SLP casting reel, and 15 pound @plinefishing tactical fluorocarbon. As I mentioned last time I'll talk more about my swim bait set ups in the fall but that Rod gets a great hook into those fish even on a really long cast. Our biggest fish of the day was a 4-10 caught on that set up with only five minutes to go! Thanks for sharing the boat today Mason and Will… You guys did a great job and never stop fishing! #marcelsguideservice #ryansaidfishing #dobynsdifference #dobynsrods #lews #lewsreels #pline #stclairsmallmouth
