I took a guy from Peoria IL to try some Walleye fishing on Canyon.
He was out here giving a training session for Caterpillar. As others said it was a slow day. I picked a small LMB and a yellow bass on a white Model A Bomber and another dink on a Kastmaster. Steve missed a couple on a minnow tipped jig, but no Walleye. We decided to troll the walls as we came in. Steve had a Fat Rap on and as we came around the point he said "Hey, I've got something". When he got it to the boat, we looked down and he had not one, but a pair of 16" SMB, one on each hook. I stumbled to get the net, but one got off before I could try to net them. A fun end to a beautiful day. Got an invite to do some Sauger fishing on the Illinois River the next time I get back there.

Bass Doubleheaders on Crankbaits

Hey AZwalleye, that reminds me of an October afternoon I took my son out on Lake Okeechobee. (We lived on the water and had 1 minute boat access to Lake Okeechobee). The skies were threatening rain and the wind was blowing into our faces. 3-4 foot waves had built up from traveling 30-40 miles of open lake. Fortunately the LMB were up on the flats facing into the wind and they were very active. We put up with the waves and caught 13 bass weighing 35 pounds in about an hour. We had 3 doubles, chunky 2-4 lb. bass on each treble hook. Twice one of the bass came off (it was tough to net them both) but my son did boat one double. He was only about 13-14 years old at the time but he still outfished me 7 to 6. It was getting even rougher so we headed on home, but it was a great time on the water however short.
