Don gets a big smallmouth bass while taping an Illinois Outdoors TV Show

Let me tell you a little bit about a recent trip I had up north.  While fishing in Boulder Junction Wisconsin, I stay at the Wildcat Lodge.  The lodge is located on 3 Class A Musky lakes, Big Kitten, Little Kitten and adjoining Wildcat Lakes.  But I wanted to do a TV show on catching smallmouth bass.

While taping an Illinois Outdoors  TV show, I fished with Fishing and Outdoor Radio pro-staffer Jeff Novak.   We got our fish using wacky worms.  Specifically, we were using Strike King Shim E Stick worms and now are you ready for this?  The color was Sweet Tater Pie.

From the show I grabbed a short segment showing once of the nice sized smallmouth bass  that we got on camera.

Quite a few fish were caught and it's days like this that keep us going back.  Taping of this TV show was easy.

The show will air on July 27 at 8 AM, channel 138 on Comcast Cable in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.

Enjoy this brief clip from the TV show.
