Quote: I am a hit-and-run style fisherman who throws crankbaits and spinnerbaits from sunup to sundown, spring to fall, always moving—only slowing down during lake sturgeon season in September. I do a lot of shore fishing in rivers for all gamefish but mostly smallmouth bass, northern pike and muskies here in Illinois, and also in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Canada.
