Man, oh man! I love it when a plan comes together! I will admit I was a little concerned when I hooked up my boat this morning at 5 AM in a pouring rain and the exterior temp gauge on my truck reading 38 degrees. The itinerary for the day was pretty simple: pick up my camera man, Jim Kramer, and drive 3 hours over to Martinsville, IN to shoot an episode of Stihl's Reel in the Outdoors with my buddy, Nick Teeter of Ranger Nick's Guide Service. Nick had offered to take us out on a large lake in a rural housing development.
Well, the rain did give way to partly cloudy skies by the time we got on the water but it stayed very cold with winds near 25 MPH. In spite of the cold front conditions and high winds, we absolutely crushed the bass. We used Nick's homemade spinnerbaits and Lucky Craft Staysee 90's to boat 15 bass between 3 and 6 pounds! That is why I always say in fishing , "You won't know if you don't go!"
