My daughter loves to fish Banks Lake. I introduced her to walleye and bass fishing here years ago, and she hasn’t missed a trip to Banks since. It was really fun watching her learning to tie on her own hook and thread a lizard on it to fish for smallmouth. It took her a while to get the hang of setting the hook, but she caught on and catches lots of smallmouth when she fishes Banks. This past Saturday she was determined to get some walleye. On her first morning of fishing for walleye years ago, she got a 26-incher before I got a second rod out and got a 24-inch fish a little later. The following year she landed a 30-inch walleye, a mark I have yet to beat on Banks. Fishing was tough on Saturday, and although I tried to talk her into switching to bass fishing, but she wanted to stick with trying to get walleye. We got a small fish on Barker Flats in the morning, but only two more, while missing a bunch of hits and me pulling the hooks out of a fish, at Million Dollar Mile. She did get the biggest smallmouth ever, though, and we had a wonderful day together.
