Smallmouth Bass

Guides Day Out

RiverQuest Captain Don Graham and I hit the Muskegon River today to chase smallmouth bass. Gorgeous weather; no boats; three retired couples in kayaks; and that was it—just us, Mother Nature and the bass. We started with streamers, hooked a couple of fish, and soon...
