The Top 5 Update streak stays alive with a catch that boosts my total by an entire ounce. Hey, I’ll take ones like this one all day, every day, whether they boost my creel or not.
Angler: Troy Jackson
Date: May 27
Location: Hennepin Canal
Lure: Special K Spinnerbait (bold bluegill) with Zoom Creepy Crawler trailer (root beer/pepper/green)
Angler Comments: Bass Fishing 101 for this catch on a stretch of The Canal with sparse structure. Find some wood and hit it from multiple angles, keeping your lure as tight to the structure as possible. Not every such spot holds an interested fish, but keep after it and you’ll be rewarded.
Top 5 Weight: 14-10 (3-5,3-2,2-12,2-12,2-11) culls a 2-11
I hit The Canal on many occasions during the month of May and wound up with some solid catches besides today’s submission. Stay tuned for the monthly “Prowl the Canal” wrap-up covering stats, lessons and perhaps some video. And May ain’t done yet. Talk to you later. Troy
