Fishing with Gussy!

I was out on Lake of the Woods today with one of the best bass anglers in Canada and in North America. Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson took time out of his busy schedule to take Hooked Magazine owner and publisher Kevin Stobbe and myself out for a day on the water. Jeff is a busy guy, so his commitment to a day in the boat was much appreciated. It was a beautiful morning as we launched the boat at Pye’s landing on the northeast end of the lake.
Certainly way out of line for this time of the year. Jeff was determined to try and catch a largemouth, his favourite fish, but as is fate, this was not the day to catch them. Try as Jeff did, not one came to the boat. Having said that, the smallmouth kept saying to Jeff, catch me please.
And catch some jumbos we did. Most were caught on small jigging spoons in 23 feet of water…and they were large!

Jeff now has some time to recuperate before he starts planning another FLW tour and his many other time commitments. Thanks again Jeff for taking us out, much appreciated.
