Fished the bass opener in a tournament in Windsor Ontario.
Water was a little rough saturday. (1-2 foot waves). Broke a bone in my hand a week ago so thank goodness for the mirage drive.

Here are some pics.

Doing what I love to do.

Thanks to the hobie, and the ability to troll in the rough water, I managed to pull of a first place finish.

Nice work de-tension! It looks like you have trolling down to a science! I am just now getting into trolling from the PA and I'm looking forward to opening a new avenue for me to catch big fish!!!

Congrats on the 1st place finish!

Is that a white bass? Nice one. We used to get that size routinely around here but so many guys took 50 to 100 per day that most of the rivers and lakes have very few left now.

White bass, pound for pound, are extremely tough customers.

All Hobies do have the best design for trolling. I always troll with mine while moving, with a hobie you are always fishing and barely paddling.

Looked back at my post and pics, the pics are from Sunday, the day after the tourny when the conditions were perfect. Saturday was rough, only took pics of the fish on the measuring board.

The PA just has so many fishing options. This was pretty comfy.

We call them silver bass here. They are usually in schools and are a blast to catch on the fly rod. I throw them back.
