MASON, MOLLY, & ALEX ARE READY TO HEAD OUT FROM THE POPPLE LAKE RAMP AND GET FISHING!!!
ALEX'S FISHING SHOW - 2017
We finally finished up Alex's Fishing Show for 2017. We improved very little on camera stability, its hard to keep it steady when watching the kids and keeping close to keep them from getting hooked or falling in the water. Also jumping bench seats for nets, etc makes it difficult at times. I am really happy with the background music I used this year, and I worked on doing a better job fading videos out for the next scene. We started out really struggling this spring, water temps were stuck and the post spawn was the toughest I ever faced, drawn out and brutally tough fishing.
When the summer water temps finally hit, fishing became fantastic! We didn't have one single disappointing trip this summer whatsoever.
We started with Great Grandma Shirley Squirrely. We had a blast with her and saw more wildlife on the drive home than ever before. We then got out on the river bank night fishing, then got up north with Sam, and finished up on Popple lake this weekend with the twins. Every trip was fun and every guest caught good fish by the time our trip was over.
A SPECIAL Thank You goes out to KEVIN VANDAM, AARON MARTENS, MIKE IACONELLI, & BRANDON PALANIUK for the intros to the Alex Fishing Show!!!!!

ALEX IS THE CHAMP!
2017 Sarona Cup Champion - 18.5" Largemouth Bass - 3 lbs 9 oz
We have had great lure sales in July, our best month ever. We are on track to double our sales from 2016! Thank you to all of our awesome customers and continue to send us your fish catch pictures on our lures! We still have a small number of James Gang Flexfit hats remaining in both L/XL and S/M sizes. Our Dunkin Frogs completely sold out in Bass Size, and it is appearing that we may be out for the year! Stanley Jigs has completely ran out of their 4/0 Double Take Frog Hooks. We are still building the larger Musky/Pike/Giant Largemouth Dunkin Frog with the 5/0 Double Take hook, in fact Ross's Sport Shop in Phillips just placed another order of them and our skirted Bee Whacker LM and will be stocking them in a few weeks. We have a decent amount of Lovertail 2's still in stock, and have the parts to build about 4 more custom Lovertail 2 Musky Waakers. We have a lot of parts to make several BABY SQUID BAITS, and tis lure was by far our #1 lure of 2017 for catching fish. Also, the biggest fish of the year, no question. I think this lure will be absolutely incredible in the fall months.

2017 JAMES GANG FALL FLAMBEAU CLASSIC
Major League Fishing - CATCH - PHOTO- WEIGH - IMMEDIATE RELEASE TOURNAMENT
We are holding a fall tournament on the Dairyland Flowage near Ladysmith, WI on October 14, 2017. Entry fee is $20. This is an invitational event. For more information, click on our "EVENTS" menu and fill out the RSVP if you are interested in competing in this event. This is a "fun" event, so we expect honesty from all anglers chosen to compete. 100% of the entry fees will be paid out to the angler with the most weight, and the angler with the heaviest bass of the tournament. This will be unique being that it is based on an afternoon/evening bite and has a late start time. As of today we have 13 anglers very interested.
FALL FLAMBEAU BEAUTIES - 16.75" @ 3 lb 13 oz & 16.5" @ 3 lb 14 oz!
We have parked the GENERAL LEE boat until Labor Day weekend. We will fish hard in the early to mid fall period and take a break during the month of August. Have a fun summer fishing, and check out 11-year-old Sariah Maylee below. She competed in the MIDWEST HMONG OUTDOORS Junior Tournament on Bald Eagle Lake, MN this past weekend, with no experience on this body of water. Sariah managed to boat a full 4 bass limit with off shore deep water tactics on her dad's secret finesse lures. Way to go Sariah!!
