June 2017

Recommended Posts

I haven't caught a smallmouth for four years. Come next June, it will be five. However, that will change in a big way as I'll be in Canada for 23 days. I'll be fishing solo from a Kevlar canoe and I just bought a Nissan Xterra Pro4X, which has skid plates, off-road shocks, a locking rear differential, hill assist, and off-road tires. I'll be going down forest service/logging roads and will be fishing lakes where it's unlikely I'll ever see anyone. In my excitement, I keep opening Google Earth to imagine myself casting here and there. I'm going to try to reach one lake that perhaps no one has ever fished. It's too small for a float plane and I'll have to cross swamps and portages that don't even exist to reach it. I doubt it will have smallmouth, but it's likely to have pike and they're fun too. I'll be fishing 12 lakes in total and one river. On the way home, I'm going to try and catch an aurora trout too.

Sounds like a blast!  I'm very lucky that my local river is full of smallmouth and I have to travel to catch largemouth...

Just curious.  You listed your location as "America's Dairyland" which I'm assuming is Wisconsin.  Why haven't you caught a smallmouth in four years?

I bought a half-finished house in Maine that took my time and money to finish. Then my old SUV quit on me and you need an SUV or truck to go where I'm going. Sure, there are many smallmouth in Maine and some right down the road, but I'm so spoiled by fishing wild lakes that teem with fish.
