Ted pulled him out of the water at Lake Adirondack in upstate NY where he was also catching large and small mouth bass the same evening. They all went back into the Lake,Continue reading “Rock Bass”
The internet says that this fishing lure was ‘created by Rene Harrop in the 1980’s.’ It’s used in the summer when insects are hatching and fish are eatin’ ’em. I prefer chips and salsa…

Yeah, I’d stay warmer if I paddled, too, but I’m not a paddler. I’m aContinue reading “Lake Frances, Adirondacks, Upstate New York”
