Huge Smallmouth Bass and Nice Muskie
Monday evening I went out fishing with Cheff Todd and Mike Steffa. I was throwing a number 3 mepps with brown hair and caught this 21 inch smallmouth bass in 6 feet of water on the edge of a big drop off. It is our biggest smallmouth of the year and actually one of the biggest smallmouth bass I have ever caught.
Chef Todd and Mike Steffa were fishing with me and actually caught nothing in our little 45 minute mini fishing trip. It was great, normally I try my best to make sure the people I am fishing with catch fish, but on an occasion such as this and after 30 minutes of them not catching anything I almost was rooting for the total skunk. It was great.....Nate 13 bass, Chef and Steffa 0! I offered to let them both real a fish in, but they graciously deferred. (normally I dont write about this sort of thing, but I just had to put this one down into the archives).
Anyhow, Chef redeemed himself and his ugly pink lure with these muskie from Banner Marsh:
