Episode 341: Tubes for Bass & Weedless Solutions

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us up to Georgian Bay, then further up north to Cochrane Ontario.

Smallmouth Bass is the target today, and while big open waters can be hard to tackle, keeping it simple is a good way to start. Tubes are incredibly productive for Bass and with a good selection, success is only a cast away.

Then later in the show, weeds can be a friend or enemy, and with fish buried deep, a weed free rig might be your only chance when nothing else is working.  Wind can make casting tough in any situation,  but ground breaking features on your equipment can make things easier than your ever thought.
