John Miller and Dan Rowell won the Tuesday Night Tackle Shack Fall League tournament on Diamond Lake this week with 9.55 pounds.
The winners had four largemouth, two of which they caught off the same dock. They fished shallow all evening.
Paying for college this academic year became a bit easier for the just-announced 12 winners of the Shimano ‘Varsity Program’ scholarship program.
Developed in conjunction with B.A.S.S. Conservation, this key initiative of Shimano’s program to assist high school and college students with their career goals includes six recent high school graduates, a current undergrad and five post-graduate students, all pursuing degrees in various conservation, fisheries and wildlife sciences and management fields.
Shimano’s Digital Control (DC) braking system is now within reach of all anglers and budgets with the new ICAST award-winning SLX DC 150 series that are now available at tackle shops for under $200.

Randy Whiteman loves a challenge.
That’s why he loves fishing muskies and has devoted his time collecting antique fishing tackle produced by the former South Bend Bait Company.
“Muskies and antique South Bend Baits share something in common – they are both hard to find,” joked the Wakarusa angler. “If something is easy, I tend to lose interest.”
He’s had quite a bit of success at both. He’s caught several 50-inch muskies from Indiana waters and has one of the rarest, if not most extensive South Bend Bait collections in the country.
From the early 1900s until the early 60s, South Bend Baits were among the most coveted by anglers. The company was best known for its Bass-Oreno, but other popular items include the South Bend Minnow, Fish-Oreno, Pike-Oreno, to name a few.
