Fish Head - Topwater Bass action

Had John Tom Ed and Ziggy out in the PM. Slow start as we only had 3 fish after about 5hours on the drift with live bait. Stayed with the bait until mayhem broke loose. The last 2 hrs we had fish blowing up on everything. These guys got to do what they do best ....throwing swimmers and topwaters. We had multiple triple headers and fisnished the night with well over 20 fish. All released except 2 for the table. Patience paid and it turned out to be a great night. See pics - triple header and one had a swimming plug wedged in his mouth not even hooked....crazy bite!!

The pressure was off but it was a struggle to find em for a great bunch out here from Michigan. Good luck in AC!! Hope to see you again.

We had the Rodgers Charter out Thursday afternoon with high expectations after a slammer trip last year.After making bait we headed up to fish,and we were crushed by the Blues ...And after hooking up and losing a few bass live lining we put out the spoons.

Fish Head - Sea Bass Opening Day!

Took a break from the striper madness to do some bottom fishing - Made a crew trip for Opening day of Sea Bass fishing season. It was just plain good fun fishing with lots of laughs and bent rods and a nice variety of fish. Many double headers and a nice ratio of keepers. Some ling and blackfish and winter flounder spiced things up. We had about 70 plus sea bass and we were home for lunch. Great day - great fun!!!

LOWRIDER - Tezak Bass Charter

We had Tim and the boys out for an afternoon trip. Got to the grounds and out went the Majas and right after we came tight on a double header. I thought it was game on because both came unglued. We ended up hooking over a dozen fish with alot of short hits. Ended up with 3 in the boat. It was a very fustrating evening for us to say the least. However, we still managed to laugh and bust balls all night, still a good but tough night for us. See you guys soon & Thanks!

LOWRIDER - Just Spoonin Around 5/7

George and I headed out last night to fish around last night to fish for an hour or two before dark. We found em deep with the Maja #4 s in yellow and white. We ended up getting 7 or 8 to the boat and had at least as many hits. Kept two for the table and released the rest. With the fish being spread out last night covering ground was key. Even in snotty conditions last night the Maja spoons perfomed well, fished em slow and deep.

Fish Head - Magic Hours Bass to 38lbs

Had John and his daughters Anna and Caroline out for a Magic Hours trip Sunday evening. All first timers and had steady action on the Maja spoons. They listened, learned, and went to work catching 7 bass. The only thing better than seeing them catch thier first bass was watching them release their first bass as well. Big fish for the day was 38lbs on the boca scale. Congrats and job well done!!

Fish Head - Magic Hours Trip

Monday had Dave, Pete, Walt, and Ryan out for a Magic Hours trip in the evening. What a difference a day makes...We were inundated with bluefish of all sizes. Couldn't find the striped species anywhere!! Good news is the crew had a blast with hours worth of bent rods and tired arms. Tons of bait, birds, and a hard SE blow. Overall still a great night on the water. Sorry no pictures - was to busy with a major blitz going on!!
