1. Details: Northern Pike

    New species/PB. 40 inch pike smashed the whopper plopper right on the bank. Scared me to death. A friend I was with had a bigger one spool him as well. Really fun ...more trip.

      Bucket list fish for sure! How was the fight compared to a bass? @TRafferty
  2. Details: Smallmouth Bass

    Went on a trip to the boundary waters of Minnesota (2000 lakes and 1000 islands) and caught some decent fish. We canoed several miles and hiked from lake to lake ...more catching pike, smallmouth, and largemouth camping along the way. Caught my PB smallmouth and added some new species to the growing list.

  4. Details: Largemouth Bass

    Caught her right before light rain today slow rolling the chatterbait parallel to the reeds in the mouth of the discharge. Right after losing two consecutive giants. ...more Decent day overall. Decker never disappoints.

  5. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Zoom ***** Toad Color: Green Pumpkin

    Had the opportunity to fish a few lakes and ponds on my friends deer lease in South Texas. I was casting over a spawning flat in about three feet of water. I wasn't ...more sight fishing but I assume she came off a bed. Between six of us, we caught 167 in about 8 hours. The majority of our fish were in the 3 pound range. Wasn't expecting it to be so loaded! This one weighed 4 lbs 3oz.

  6. Pretty nice fish on LBJ. She helped me a lot in this tournament. Caught her casting up onto a submerged grass bed on a point and dragging the fluke off the edge ...more and letting it fall to the bottom and then dead sticking it back to the boat. She hit it on the fall. Finished second in this tournament.

      Hey man, I don't have very many offshore summer spots on LBJ, but during the summer you can always catch a few skipping docks with senkos, flukes, and even frogs. ...more @jackmawer
