Angler Lands Bass

Largemouth bass famously cruise inside weedlines, slop, and thick salad for quick and easy meals. They also lurk deeper in cabbage, coontail, and milfoil beds and depth breaks doing the same thing. Bass are eating machines, no bones about it. Find a way to penetrate the jungle and the days can be rod-bendingly epic. Of course, this can make our job as bass anglers difficult.

Crappie Ice Fishing

North Dakota-based Northland Fishing Tackle pro staffer Chad Malloy is a big fan of numerous lakes in North Dakota, Jamestown Reservoir being one of his favorites, especially during early- to mid-ice. “They have excellent crappies, big perch, and lots of walleyes. It’s a reservoir system and there’s current that runs down the middle, so we’re careful when we go, always checking ice conditions. We also use GPS mapping on our phones and Humminbird units to make sure we’re off the…
