Trophy tales: Applying new lessons lands a smallmouth bass

  • Updated: June 4, 2014 - 7:18 AM

On Memorial Day, and our last day camping at Mille Lacs, I caught this 20-inch smallmouth bass. It was a perfectly calm morning, something unusual on Mille Lacs, which made us rethink our strategy since we could see them, yet they were not biting. My Dad only had one topwater lure and was the only who had caught a fish that morning. After teaching me how to work the Skitter Pop lure, he let me use it. On my fourth cast with my new lure and with the new technique I had just learned, I hooked this fish!
