Fishing Break

August 16, 2023  |  Scott M. Lepak

Scott Lepak’s mother regularly viewed approaching rainstorms as opportunities to do a little quick fishing before the storm hit because, according to her, that was when the fish were really biting.  In a continued shout out to mothers who love to fish and are enthusiastic pressure system weather prognosticators, Bill Huefner and Scott Lepak hit the Mississippi River Sunday afternoon, August 13th, with a huge rain system headed their way.  Led by trusty fishing guide Tommy Steffen, Bill and Scott got in on a hot bite for smallmouth bass.  While Scott got the coveted first fish award, Bill came on strong with the biggest and last fish.  After catching and releasing 41 smallmouth in 4 hours, Scott and Bill are planning their next fishing adventure for September.
