Fun day fishing the KBS Classic Qualifier on Lake Sakatah this past Saturday, May 26th! Tough bite it was, had to finesse and coax the bass with a wacky worm or Texas-rigged craw. Only caught four measurable fish but I really like the lake very much. Also got to try out my buddy Grant’s Old Town Predator. It was very comfortable!
Buzzbait early, wacky and Ned rigs when the sun came up. Bass seemed to be everywhere! Below is a big bass that inhaled a 3” Ned Zone in the dirty shad color on a 1/16 oz. mushroom jighead. The subtle action of the True Center Stick was too much for the toad (on the right) to handle. Fun day on the water!
With only a week away from the 2018 Fishing Opener, the countdown begins and excitement builds. From waking up at the crack of dawn to spooling fresh new line the night before, looking over lake maps, and deciding what lures to throw, it is all in the planning process leading up to the first cast. Enjoy this video entitled “The Rise of the Fisherman.”
Stacey, JT, and I attended the annual Northwest Sportshow to meet up with our good friends of Spring Bay Resort, catching up with my kayak fishing friends from the Minnesota Kayak Fishing Association, and checking out the latest tackle & boats/pontoons. JT also caught his first trout at the kids trout pond!
With warming temps the week ahead and the snow melting, only one thing comes to mind… Fishing! Join me this season as I take you on an adventure to catch some tackle bustin’ bass, muskies, big pike, crappies, and other species. We will also share with you some tips along the way. I am excited for the upcoming season and looking forward to seeing you on the water.
