Catch of the Day

I had a very nice June day to give the fish in Medicine Lake a try. June is still spring in Minnesota and some bass will still be spawning throughout the month of June even though most of the bass will be in the post spawn phase. In Minnesota the post spawn can make for tough fishing conditions because the bass tend to bury up in all the new aquatic vegetation that grows so rapidly at this time of year.
This TV show got off to an amazing start with a very nice bass that I caught on a Zara Spook. The Spook is a topwater bait and topwater baits are my favorite lures to use in bass fishing. This fish had some of those dark spots that I sometimes see on bass. I have heard from knowledgeable people that they are just pigment variations and are nothing to worry about. I could only catch one bass on the Spook but that one bass showed me that there could be more fish in the area.
I continued to fish the area with a Texas rigged worm, working it in all that new weed growth. It was mostly milfoil in this part of the lake. My second bass, which I caught on the Texas rig, was another big fish and there would be many more nice bass to follow.
This was a very fun day of fishing for me. It was a beautiful spring day and the bass were biting. In the video below learn how to catch bass on plastic worms and check out the one I caught on a Zara Spook!
