Cherry catches them on a swimbait

8:08 am EDT, Sep 29, 2013 | By Steve Wright

Hank Cherry has moved down the bank and offshore from where he started, and he has switched to a swimbait. That's what produced bass No. 2 for him just now - a 2 1/4-pound smallmouth.

He's fishing a big flat that has a sharp drop on the edge - "kind of like a Kentucky Lake ledge," says Mike Elkins, our boat driver and local angling expert.

It's been fun hanging out with Elkins this week. He knows all the underwater structure in both Muskegon and White lakes. He's able to add some insight to what every angler is doing, which is always helpful to a hillbilly like me.
