I am fresh off a trip to our neighboring state of Wisconsin where I was fishing bass with Jimmy Bell on Lake Superior. That just doesn't sound right does it? But it is right. We were on Chequamegon Bay near Ashland, Wis., and absolutely hammered the monster smallmouth bass. And as exciting as it was, I have even more exciting news! You will have to tune into that show, because it's going to be a "laugher". I'm not kidding, you will definitely know what I am talking about after this show airs! But what's more exciting than bass you say? I say deer.
I just stepped inside after almost being carried away by some jumbo mosquitoes. They are bad! If you want to try something to keep them away, try a Thermacell! No they are not a sponsor of mine, I am just trying to help you out and they really do work. I guess you could call Buzz too (he is the owner of the Mosquito Squad). So, it's Independence Day weekend. Happy birthday to the good ole U.S.A.. The Freedom Day Parade is Nisswa was once again an awesome success. What a cool town, what a cool parade and what a cool batch of people that occupy this area.
I am not really a big-time tournament fisherman, but I do like supporting charities and every year I fish some of these events. This past weekend I fished the Camp Confidence Fishing Classic with my parents (Barb and Ike). This turned out to be "one of those days", and in a really good way! If you recall, the wind was blowing and it was "moist." After takeoff at Madden's Resort around 8 a.m., we headed north and settled into an area along Grassy Point where the wind was ripping pretty good.
