  1. floating downstream vertical jigging

    Walleye with a jigging

  2. Water real murky today due to heavy rain and high winds the last two days. Was getting skunked on tubes and top waters before I switched to Ned Rig... then bam, ...more bam, bam, bam! For fish on five casts tossing it in right next to shore and bumping it down the gravel embankment.

    16 in. Largemouth Bass with a Ned Rig, Coppertreuse ZMan TRD Worm

  3. Good day out with my dad, netted 8 smallies ranging 17-19". A couple boats of "bass holes" came up on us and positioned their fu*king boats right ...more where we were casting. They weren't catching sh*t either! Before me and my dad left our spot we pulled four fish out of my live well and held them up to take this pic as the "bass holes" looked on! They were in a tournament, we told them that a couple amateur angler just kicked their ass and then sped off in my boat... I made sure the bass went back in the live well before we sped off!

  4. Attacked my crankbait with blood on his mind. Thought it was a pike at first

    3 lb. 12 oz. Smallmouth Bass with a chartreuse square bill

  5. Another Sugar Island beast... lower Detroit River is producing good numbers of fish as well as good size. Any gravel or rock structure in 6 to 12 fow will do. ...more They're on the live crayfish or Ned rig. Surprisingly tubes aren't getting bites though. This one here hit the 21" mark, 5lbs 4oz.

  6. Not what you want to catch on an Ultra light rod and Perch Rig but still a lot of fun

    Flathead Catfish with a Perch Rig

    1. Brian Herrin
      That is not a blue, not a flathead either. That is a channel catfish. I fish for catfish all the time and I can tell it definitely is 100% a channel catfish. Some ...more are just darker in color then others
    2. Jimbo Harwood
      Lol I bet that guy did.. they do put up a descent fight..
    3. ray canterbury
      Could be a blue, I'm sure it's not a Channel Cat, but I'm not an expert on Cat Fish. He did pull out all of my line on the little reel!
    4. Jimbo Harwood
      Nice ray. bet that was a good fight.. but I don't think that's a flathead, maybe a blue or channel cat. but I could be wrong tho. 😊

Icing on the cake ...more was I got her during one of my local fishing league events on Grosse Ile πŸ‘ŠπŸ» Helluva fight, kept diving under the boat and also gave me a Polaris-like leap where I thought I lost her.
