Maple bass

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.

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.
