We're on Lake Superior, home to more than 20 million surface acres of water! We're here to catch fish without any outside help. How do we find bass in such a vast environment? Where do we start looking? Come along for an amazing journey as we explore the largest freshwater lake in the world in search of Smallmouth bass.
The key to breaking down such a massive lake is to forget how big it really is. Start with a map of the entire lake, pretend the lake is only 500 acres, and pick your key spots. No matter how big a pond, lake, or ocean is, they all have the same key "spots". Once you've selected points or coves that look good, its time to zoom in. Its at this point that you begin to see how giant the lake really is. Take each key spot you identified and break it down into smaller and smaller key spots. Now its time to begin fishing! Remember that in a lake this big not every spot will be a home run, stick to your pattern until you find the fish you're searching for.
In today's video the guys fished for 3 days. They found fish each day and were able to dial in the pattern a little better at each stop. While they never found the "motherlode" of big bass spots, they found some awesome fishing and had a great time on a fishery neither angler will ever forget.
