1. Day 2 - NNY Bassmasters Team Championship - Black Lake. Had just under 21lbs of smalmouth on day 1 (which had us overall at 3rd place heading into day 2). Complete ...more switch of fishing style to weedy shallow largemouth lake. We knew we were going to need a good anchor fish on this body of water. Luckily she came pretty early. We had a solid limit and actually moved up a spot and finished 2nd for the 2017 Championship.

    Almost all my fish were caught on Gajo Sticks and Gary Yamamoto senkos. I was alternating between the two brands for color choices depending on the water clarity at the spots I was at. I also caught a few pitching a (clearwater craw) bayou bug jig into shallow brush. Great way to wrap up the 2017 team trail season.

    1. awesome job bud

      Dave the walleyes are hitting good. The reason I know this...I don't walleye fish at all and I am all of sudden catching them consistently by accident while ...more smallmouth fishing. So they must be biting well! haha.
    2. Eddie Goode
    3. Nice work Brad! Be up in a few days. How are the Walleyes hitting? Keep up the fun!
