I Do Love Those Fiesty Bass

Thu Apr 28 15:03:00 MDT 2011

It is true, I do love bass! I think it stems from the feisty attitude they have. I enjoy the many techniques you can use to fish for bass, from one exploding on a topwater bait, to hammering a crankbait in 20’ of water. They are such a unique species—depending on the day, or even within the same day, they can be caught about a million different ways. When it comes to fish, I am always drawn to bass.

The fish species I cherish the most is the Eastern brook trout. Some of my fondest memories of childhood fishing took place on my great uncle Bill’s property just outside of Polson. As a kid my family would take trips to the Flathead in the summer. I still remember being able to take a pole with about three feet of fishing line and a bare hook to the creek that ran behind my great uncle's house. We would catch brook trout for what seemed like hours.

What About The Sturgeon Chub

Thu Apr 28 14:01:00 MDT 2011

We had dragged nets through numerous reaches of the Powder River, a tributary of the Yellowstone in southeastern Montana, capturing an incredible diversity of fishes, yet the sturgeon chub eluded us where a decade earlier they had been abundant.
