Maple bass

Postby ccfish » Jun Sun 11, 2017 5:03 pm

I've been fishing the back side of maple the last couple of weekends without anything to show for. Too many weeds on that side. I went out yesterday morning figured i'd try the peninsula as it wasn't to crowded. I was throwing a silver rattle trap and to my surprise the bass thought it looked pretty tasty. I ended up landing 3 for the day. With the first being the biggest and then they got smaller from there.

Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

Pike are hard to find in the summer shore bound. Late October, early November with a black/blue chatterbait is
when I catch a few. Nothing big, but a nice surprise.
