Ronda and Ed McCoy from Wichita, Kansas came on-board for a bass fishing excursion of a life time.
The McCoy’s just wanted to catch one fish and if it weighed 10 pounds they would be satisfied. That’s a request we get a lot, unfortunately the fish don’t always agree with us!
When making there reservation the reservation office told the McCoy’s that a 10 pound bass was a tall order to complete, no matter what time of the year they fished. With the October moon behind us and the record heat index, not to mention the blue bird sky’s it makes for a very large order to fill. Ed said to them, “to catch a trophy, I was willing to take on anything.” We were quick to share with him a few of our secrets to doing so. First, you have to choose the right lake and right now it’s Lake Toho. He responded by saying, “let’s go Toho.”
The second secret was choosing the right fishing guide, there’s a lot of good guides on Lake Toho but only a hand full catch trophy bass consistently all year round and Captain John Leech is one of the best in the business. With out hesitation he responded, “Capt John’s my Man.”
I love trips like these, a great day on the water starts with making friends in the morning which was as easy as shaking hands when I picked them up at the Ramada Inn. We loaded the boat with big wild shiners and off to the BIG BASS waters we went. A little instructions at the beginning and let the fishing begin. They caught the first fish, the second fish, then another and another then the first 5 pounder hit. The next fish was 8 pounds, I think at this point Ed and Ronda were happy with the outcome. The next fish would prove to be the top bass of the day, weighting in at just over 10 pounds. They were no longer just happy, but simply loss for words ecstatic is more like it.
“This made the day for me,” replied Captain John. I also learned a few things, as a avid billiards player. Ed being a pro in the game, he shared a few tidbits to improve my pool game.
Overall a real great day for everyone!
Remember we have great “Specials for all Inclusive Packages” just let us know what you need.
Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
