Best time of year to go Bass Fishing!

Legend and I went on a mission today. We wacked em. Lost count because we caught so many. All on crankbaits. From 8 ft to shore. Awesome day. Waited all winter for days like today. I hope for the same result for my Anglers Unlimited club tourney on Long Lake tomorrow

Most anglers go onto a lake and see what everyone else is doing, not what Alex V is doing!

The pics are from Round Lake. My tournament was on Long Lake. Rainy windy and cold. I sucked. Only brought in 2 fish That's how fishing goes sometimes. I worked my crankbait pattern and it didn't pan out. It was such a good pattern when I pre fished last week. Hard to let go when you have them dialed in that good. I didn't sore mouth a lot of fish. I caught 6 bass. My last 3 bass were from 3 different spots. All over 4 lbs. Fish for today, not yesterday is the lesson I forgot. So far I've come in 1st on Round lake tournament 2 weeks ago. Turn out for that tournament was 39 anglers. No limits. Turn out for Long Lake was 35 anglers. 3 limits. I came in 10th. It's not too late to join Anglers Unlimited. Next stop is Tichigan on opening weekend in Wi on sunday. We've got 4 spots open for our club.

Right on man, it was tough yesterday! I'd join, but my schedule is crazy as is, but it sounds like a blast! I've been wanting to go to Round lake and Long for so long, but I just keep putting it off. Soon, soon.....

I'm heading back to Long Lake this weekend. With air temps supposedly in the 80s I think fishing should be back to normal.
