Too much of a good thing

Jul 31, 2015

As you can see from the accompanying video, the wind is blowing right down the chute that is the St. Lawrence River, at an estimated 10 to 15 miles-per-hour, although everyone on the water today says it feels more like 25 mph.   The anglers wanted some wind today, as wind and sunshine make for ideal smallmouth bass fishing conditions. But this is a lesson in "be careful what you wish for." It's hard to catch anything when it's an adventure to remain standing in your boat.

Critical day for Angler of the Year

Jul 31, 2015

This is a make-or-break day for the AOY fortunes of Dean Rojas, Justin Lucas and Greg Vinson, especially Lucas and Vinson. After Day 1, Rojas was 49th, Lucas 84th and Vinson 98th. Rojas has been flirting with disaster on Day 1 a couple of times this season, but he's managed to pull it out.
