Jimmy Brown and William Reynolds teamed up to win the Michiana Fishing League tournament last weekend on the St. Joseph River in South Bend.
A lot of smallmouth were caught on a variety of lures and techniques with Ned rigs and crankbaits among the top producers.
Sure that expensive bass boat looks good and carries all of your sophisticated equipment.
There’s no question that the electronics unlock secrets of a lake and those premium rods, reels and line make you a more resolute angler.
But is all of that necessary to catch a state record bass?
A traditional exposed-hook mushroom jig excels where little to no cover carpets the lake floor.
Yet it’s often in those underwater jungles — grass, brush, rock and boat docks— where bass like to live and lash out at unsuspecting prey. That’s why Z-Man designed the definitive weedless Ned Rig tool, the NedlockZ™ EWG Jighead.

Thats something thats said often around my household this summer.
Merrick Powell shows off a nice Michiana bluegill he caught while fishing with his dad last week. Bluegill fishing remains good through late summer.
It doesnt take a lot of coaxing for me to want to go. Besides, what better way to keep kids occupied and out of trouble than spending a day bluegill fishing with them?
Im amazed at how many anglers stop panfishing during the dog days of the summer. The fish still have to eat and will if you spend time looking for them.
