ALEX JAMES FEEDS SOME WILD DUCKS WHILE FISHING THE 2019 RIVERBANK RALLY
MID-SUMMER = RIVERBANK FISHING
When anglers think of mid-summer, they think about fishing deep clear water structure, shallow lily pad froggin' fields, on shore fishing the riverbanks. The James Gang has chosen to spend some time on the banks, and in our limited time of fishing, we found some success with bass, musky, and some accidental baby sturgeons. Our anglers in our 2019 WI Riverbank Rally Tournament are catching a few here and there but have struggled to get time in with the constant storms and high-waters in the rivers. Daniel Easland registered a very nice 24" sucker, and is trailing category leader John Beaudette by only 1.5". Ryan Vreeland is also trailing Beaudette in 2nd place, but in the catfish category with a 29" catfish on the board. James Gang CEO Alex James and I hit up the Chippewa & EC River today but were disappointed when we arrived to a very fast current from the EC River. We didn't manage any fish but were able to feed quite a few ducks to pass the time on a gorgeous evening on the water. The cooler , low-humidity weather was a nice break from the 122 heat index we experienced a few days earlier. Even when the fish aren't hooked up, it is always a relaxing time fishing from a river bank.
