It was only couple of years ago when Lake Webster gamefish had plenty of habitat.
Today, about the only fish cover in the lake are 11 manmade fish attractors purchased, built and installed by a group of concerned anglers and citizens with help from local businesses.
The fish attractors were necessary because all of the weeds are gone in the 774-acre Kosciusko County lake.
Thats what happens when residents get aggressive with weed killing chemicals to make the lake more boater-friendly.
Bass tournament fishing and NASCAR go together like beer and hot wings.
I get that, since both sports grew out of the south.
But NFL and bass fishing?
I didnt see it coming, but that bond was definitely there during the first-ever KVD/Lions Charity Bass Tournament near Detroit last week.
It was born a year ago out of a conversation between Kalamazoos Kevin VanDam, arguably the best pro bass angler on the planet, and Lions head coach Jim Schwartz, who has turned the NFL doormat into a pillar of super bowl hope and promise.
