Mike Wentz
Location: Lemmon, South Dakota
Member Since: 2008
Favorite Lake: Nelson Lake, New Johns, Fish Creek, Sheep Creek, Tshida, and any other lake in North & South Dakota & Minnesota that has mass quantities of Large and/or Small Mouth Bass waiting to be caught
Favorite Technique: Soft baits (ie senkos, tubes, crack craws, brush hogs and tube darts), top water (ie Hulla Poppers, Scum Frogs, and Big Foot Scum Frogs), Rattle Traps, and Strike King Bleeding CrankBaits. I've tried spinner baits but they become an exercise in casting with little result - someday that may change. 
Favorite Season: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
When Not Fishing: Working on the house fixing & remodeling or in the yard.....that keeps the wife happy so I can go fishing. PLUS Work, it pays the bills.
Goals: To continue to LISTEN, LEARN & REMEMBER all the new things each fishing trip and to cut back on the tackle I drag with each trip (the boat seems to be getting more crowded each year!) Or get a bigger boat!!!!!!
