My brother in law Tom Verschuren and I headed up to Banks Lake on Friday. We launched at Northrup and drove the boat over to Barker Flats. When we arrived, I discovered that I had left my walleye box at home. I always bring some bass rods and tackle along when we fish Banks, so no problem. We ran over the far shore and went to work. We started off casting three- and four-inch Senkos and were catching fish right away. I decided to switch to lizards in the same size and had even better success. We like to fish for bass off the shoreline opposite the boat launch at Million Dollar Mile, but as we saw that the wind had kicked and wanted to stay in the calmer water. I ran the boat further up to an area that we hadn’t tried before and was glad we did. Smallmouth were abundant here and eager to hit our lizards. I had a counter along and decided to keep track of the number of fish we caught and released. When the counter hit 50 we packed it in and headed for home. What a fun way to spend a day!
