img_0555.jpgI have been meaning for the longest time to get this story posted, and since i didn't get out on the water last night, i feel that this is the perfect time to share the trip that Tim, Brett and myself had.  It was a few days back when we hit the water with the intentions of catching walleyes early then switching to bass later in the day.  The fish pretty much cooperated as planned and we boated 7 or 8 walleyes quick, then switched to bass.  Both Tim and Brett have fished bass plenty in the past, but have always had trouble catching the big ones.  The bass were in the post spawn period but still hanging around the same areas.  We targeted them with pearl white Zoom Super Flukes.  These two gentlemen loved everything about their new favorite lure and enticed many bass into striking.  By the end of the trip, we boated close to 40 bass with some lunkers in the 20" range.  Thanks for the fun trip guys, it was a pleasure to take the both of you out.  Hope to see ya again when Muskie time rolls around!
