A few years ago, Mike McKee and I had an epic day catching smallmouth bass on Moses Lake. We have always talked about trying to have another day like that, so I called him up and asked if he would like it a try on Tuesday. You bet, he said. I also got Tom Verschuren to come along. I had promised Tom, who is a regular fishing companion, that we would do more bass fishing this year. We had great conditions when we arrived at Connelly Park, and I even got a good bite in the bay above the park soon after we launched. We then ran up the lake to the spot where Mike and I had done so well on our epic trip. We were casting tube jigs in shallow water that had a nice rocky bottom. I landed a very nice smallmouth here, but that was it. I could see evidence of bass beds in the shallows, but they had long since been abandoned and the fish had scattered. We tried a couple of other likely spots and finally found some fish on the rocky reef below Cascade Valley. Here Tom landed his personal best smallmouth, so we considered it a successful day.
I got this smallmouth at the upper end of Moses Lake on tube jig.
