I don't claim to be an expert fisherman ... just a guy who loves to fish and has been blessed for his efforts. I learned a long time ago that in fishing, and in much of life, you get out of it what you put into it. I work hard when fishing, I study a lot, and always try to learn something on every outing. I hope you can use the information I post on this blog to learn something as well. Thanks for following along!

Another Typical Mendota Day

Got out for the afternoon and evening Saturday. It took a while, but eventually found some smallies and walleyes on the weed edges. Got this guy drop-shotting live leeches.
At sundown my buddy caught this 30.5" channel on a leech under a slip float. It pretty much convinced me to take some bluegill chunks out the next time I go. We also saw a number of cats rolling on the surface.


  1. can't beat live bait in the dog days of summer, nice fish Todd!

  2. Have you been doing any good, Blake?
