Host Mike D of Lunkerville has been ice fishing on Lake Champlain a couple of times, but this is his first Bass fishing trip. He's joining Rich Zaleski or Rich Z who posts regular fishing reports on the Lunkerville website. Lake Champlain sits on the border of Vermont and New York State and Rich fishes it regularly, he's marqued of likely spots, where there are hidden abutments in about 18' of water. This is a bit too shallow for Smallmouth Bass at any time other than early morning, so he's expecting they will find their Largemouth cousins. The conditions aren't in their favour, with clear blue skies and a rising barometer the Bass might not be too keen. But Rich is using a creature bait, the Lunker City Ozmo in his favourite Green Pumpkin colour. Rich obviously knows what he's doing and between landing plenty of Largemouth he's got a few tips to try and help Mike, who as usual is making things look difficult.
