Fishing For Listeners! (PHOTOS)
Hi my name is Rick Rider (Rockin' Rick) and I have a fishing problem. Whenever I'm not fishing I have a problem! I'm the new voice on these airwaves and seriously I'm thrilled to be here and I wanted to share some of my recent vacation pictures with you. My 4th of July got off to a Red, White and Bang with a South Dakota Whopper Catch & Release Walleye. The funny thing is... We weren't even fishing for Walleyes. You see we have a cabin in the glacial lakes in North East South Dakota. Over 40 lakes are within a 10 mile radius of our lake place and most are very good Walleye lakes. However, my family and I have always been drawn to Smallmouth Bass. In fact, the South Dakota state Smallmouth record was caught within 20 minutes of our place.
Anyway, back to my Walleye story...I was fishing with my son and we were using a technique called "drop shotting", which can and occasionally does catch Walleyes, and BIG ones too. As I set the hook, I was thinking whopper bass but was pleasantly surprised to see a nice 27-inch Walleye coming up from the green soup. Took a couple of pictures and let her back to swim another day.
My son Hunter...Who I should've named "Fisher" wants to be a pro bass fisherman someday. Smallmouth, White & Largemouth...You name it. If it's a bass he wants to catch it. He'll be a sophomore at BHS this fall. He's also a very good athlete. Hockey, baseball & football.
I'm looking forward to sharing our fishing & hunting stories and pictures in my blog, so be sure to stop by a LOT! Until next time tight lines and keep your radio's locked.
