Look Beyond the Red-winged Blackbird

red wing blackbird

See that current’s edge. I’ve been fishing that my whole life. First hauling perch on a Zebco with worms impaled on Eagle Claw hooks. Then pike with spinning gear and a Heddon Midget River Runt . And finally a nine foot six weight and a baitfish pattern on a size two hook. When I’m there and the boats aren’t in and I need to steal a moment I can wade the shoal in the frigid water and cast along the dropoff for northerns or along the edge for lingering smallmouth. It’s my spot; it’s only right they would oblige.
