I had high hopes for my last trip to Banks Lake. I have had good success this season, and I wanted my brother in law Tom Verschuren to get in on the fun. He joined me on Thursday, and we started our day trolling crank baits from the Million Dollar Mile campground to Rosebush. I put out the Flick Shads and Bandits that were proven to be effective. Conditions were good, but the fishing wasn’t. We didn’t even get a bite. I know Tom loves to fish for bass, so I had him bring his gear. We ran across the lake to the south shore and went to work. What we found worked best was to park in an attractive bay and start casting. The watermelon with red flakes are our favorite Senkos and we both tied those on. We made our retrieves very slow, and this worked the best. We have had better days catching bass on Banks, but the size of the fish we got were above average. We finished our day trolling from Rosebush the campground and got just one walleye. Oh well, we had a great day, and are eager to get back out on Banks.
