My wife Barbara, our pup Mulligan and I had the pleasure of treating Howyn Tank, the winner of the 13th MNR & F Kids Fish Art Contest and her father Pierre, to a day of “catching” on Lake Erie.
We had excellent conditions and fish a shallow bay where we could see lot’s of big carp cruising around and many large sheepshead. Barb, above, shows-off one of the sheepshead she landed using a 4″ tube.
Howyn also had her hands full landing some nice smallmouth bass using the Lunker City SwimFish with a 1/4 oz jighead in 10-12′ of water.
I even had a chance to hook some fish in-between netting and taking photos. We had excellent weather, we spent quality time on the water, enjoyed a great meal at Happy Jacks Chinese Restaurant in Fort Erie, and as a bonus we caught fish!!
