A couple of nice bass
On a Mid April 2012 fishing trip to Arkansas, Beaver Lake area caught these Bass on a Drop-Shot rig with a Baby Bass finese worm. bass were in 30 feet of water about a foot off the bottom feeding on a large school of shad. When there are that many shad in a lake it is a tough bite. thanks to Uncle John Stapleton for being our guide. -fritzthecat

Susan and Macs 20 and 42 pound blue cats
I was watching City Limits Fishing with Mike Laconelli one Saturday afternoon. He was fishing in St. Louis with local cat fishing guide Ryan Casey. They were catching blue cats in the 40 pound range right down by the Arch. I was so impressed that I called Ryan that evening to book a trip. Wow, what a trip. 25 fish in 4 hours. -mac6260

Musky fishing in Paradise, MI
I’m 12 years old and have been fishing for my whole life. My goal this summer was to catch a legal Musky. We loaded the boat at the mouth. We fished for a whole day and towards dusk I cast a chartruese daredevil by a log on the side of the river. I caught this 42.5″ Clear Musky! What excitement in the boat! We participated in CPR and hope the fish grows even bigger. Joe -kellyhealy
