This was one of the first times I fished with MT out of his boat. It was at the Fishers of Men Club Fall Outing in 1999. We fished a small lake named Silver. Mike got the big one which was probably pushing 5lbs and I got the smaller one which was a solid 3lber if not 4lbs. We got these fish right away in the morning and thought it was going to be game on. It wasn't, we ended up struggling.
Another Solid 3lber
I think this was the only other bass we caught. I think we may have gotten a few Pike and we got followed around for a while by a juvenile loon. Eventually we gave up on the lake and went to Horseshoe.
Here is me with the fish we got right away in the morning.
I was born a fisherman on 1/3/1970. My fondest early memories are of waking up before day break to go fishing for Largemouth Bass with my Dad on Sylvia/Twin Lake in Wright County MN. Fishing has always been in my blood and the older I got the more fishing and bass fishing has become a passion.
I am blessed to currently live on a lake in Central Minnesota where the weeds grow thick and the Lgmth Bass grow big (well, big for MN anyway). There are few things in life like a big ole toad smacking a weedless frog through the wild rice, reeds, pads, or other slop. My favorite techniques are slopping weedless frogs, Zoom Super Flukes, & Topwater esp. for Smallies; I am also starting to really get into pitching.
I do fish for more than bass as this weblog will show. I love catching Pike, Salmon, Trout, and Crappie which are my other favorite freshwater species. Ohh and I can't forget Dogfish as that I am the 2004 & 2006 Minnesota Bowfin Grand Champion.
