BIG Trophy Smallmouth Bass at Common Fishing at Fireside Lodge in Canada
Jim Stark from Mission Viejo, CA met up with good friend Dave Powell from Springfield, IL for their 5th visit with us at Fireside Lodge. DOA Jim said they broke the ice and got the pressure off of being skunked for the whole trip. In character Jim said this jokingly and with a great big smile he always carries around with him. 1st day the ticket for Jim a was a double bladed Mepps catching 4 fish in a row after having to straighten his lure time and time again because the Northern Pike were beating it up. 2nd day was another very good day of fishing as Jim phrased it, they caught a bunch of Northern Pike, and Dave also caught Smallmouth bass and while doing so Dave said he hooked into the biggest fish he had ever seen taking his surface lure with lite line and no leader. Well it was a win-win situation as the big fish jumped clear out of the water throwing Dave’s lure right back at him. Win for the fish that it got away and win for Dave that he got his lure back and his equipment survived.
