Melvern Madness!

Well we filmed Sunday the 27th with Brian Ondrejka and Kansas Angling Experience Guide Service on Lake Melvern.  What a trip it was!  I came in thinking that we would be catching them on swimbaits, crankbaits, and maybe even some topwater. 12072578_10153613094475782_2680171434277764266_n Boy was I wrong!  Frank Snagger and I stayed at the Wyatt Earp Inn in Lebo, KS and what a pleasant stay that was.  We woke up about 5:45 AM and met our cameraman Caleb Spangler at the truck stop and headed for Melvern State Park.  We met Brian
and DJ and got on the water around 6:30 to a beautiful sunrise.  We started out fishing a point early in the morning with schools of shad everywhere.  Seems like a perfect topwater or swimbait opportunity right?  That’s what I thought.  Nothing really happened.

As the day went on it became clear that it was going to be a bluebird sky day with little to no wind at all.  That meant it was time to start finesse fishing for these bronzebacks.  I picked up my “Ned Rig” and began throwing it along the gravel and chunk rock points.  I hadn’t heard of the “Ned Rig” and when I saw it I thought it was kind of a joke.  It is basically a jighead with half a senko on it.  hqdefaultHowever with the 10x material that Z-Man makes the bait is more buoyant and stands completely vertical in the water.  I became a believer fast!  I started getting a lot of bites on this rig and didn’t put it down the rest of the day.  I caught one smallmouth that was around 3 lbs and the other over 2 lbs.  Frank caught one over 2 lbs on the Ned Rig as well.

We had a great day learning about a new lake and a new finesse tactic.  Make sure you give Brian Ondrejka (913) 484-9055 to set up a guide trip with him!
It is going to be a blast going through this footage and turning it into an awesome episode! Lester signing off. Thanks!



Smallmouth Fishing with Kansas Angling Experience Guide Service

Hey guys, I know it’s been awhile since our last action!  We are back and pumped to announce that we will be filming September 27th with Brian Ondrejka on Lake 10511150_10100645883896115_8043304203158074587_nMelvern in Melvern, KS.  This is going to be an awesome show because we are going to be catching Smallmouth Bass.  Known as one of the most prolific fighting fish that you can catch; it is really going to be a great time catching these fish.
Myself (Lester) & Frank Snagger will be the main cast for this episode with the cameraman being Caleb Spangler.  Caleb is a friend of mine from high school and I’m pumped to have his knowledge of film and video on board with our show.

For this episode we may be catching these Smallmouth in a variety of ways.  There may be a topwater bite early in the morning or even all day if there is cloud cover. There will probably be a finesse bite where we use lighter line and catch them on a tube!  Either way, it is going to be a blast filming with Brian and his crew and 10649540_10100441574264255_4379824385283564795_ncatching these awesome Smallmouth!  If you are ever looking for a great guide service to go fish with in the Kansas Area then check out Kansas Angling Experience Guide Service!  Tell them That’s A Good Fish sent you!
