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.

People who use Indiana's lakes and reservoirs for recreation should be aware that blue-green algae blooms have the potential to cause health problems in humans and animals.
Blue-green algae blooms are a seasonal occurrence in some Indiana waters, fueled by summer heat, sunlight and fertilizer runoff from lawns and farms. Drought and low water levels in lakes and reservoirs can increase blue-green algae quantities and/or toxins.
