I’ll be keeping an eye on the Open at Table Rock – I’ve probably spent more time on that lake than any other that the Bassmaster Elite series visits.
I’ve fished for Great Lakes smallmouth most of my life, but those Sturgeon Bay fish just weren’t doing what I thought they would.
Aside from the fact that there is a lot of water to cover here at Sturgeon Bay, another big challenge we face in the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of Year Championship is figuring out the bass’ diet.
I truly love fishing the Great Lakes for smallmouth, and this tournament has the potential of producing some eye-popping smallmouth catches.
A bigger clue – one that other anglers should take notice – is that the bait is starting to move even though it may feel like summer is still in full swing.
Just when you think you have these darn smallmouth figured out, they throw you a big, sweeping curve ball.
The Bassmaster Elites wrap up the 2015 regular season at one of KVD's favorite places on earth – Lake St. Clair.
It’s a big place with a lot of options, but they’re spread out with a lot of dead water in-between spots. The fact it’s a tidal fishery makes it even more perplexing.
An angler can never stop learning, especially in this era when fisheries are ever-changing.
Nothing is more rewarding than to have someone tell me they had their best day of fishing using a lure or rod and reel I helped design.
