Episode #395 A Trick or Two for Bass

Today the Destination takes us over to the Land O’Lakes area in Eastern Ontario.

Charlie once again joins up with Buddy Chris McMillan for a fun day on the water.  Smallmouth Bass on a deep - clear water lake is the challenge today, and so is deciding on what the preferred approach maybe?  Always best to let the fish decide, so throw a variety of presentations at them and adjust from there. Wacky rigged worms are always a favourite, and so is one of Charlie’s highly guarded secrets…that was until now!!  A trick or two for Bass, this week on …Fishful Thinking
