Thank you to Scott and Mr. Compiani for bustin balls upon our arrival. Haha, thanks for letting me and my bum friend Reese stick around and fish. The day started off great. Left work at 11sh arrived to the lake around 115. Thats when things got a little dicey. As we approached the waters edge we noticed the ol Scout was filled with water and the batteries have not been maitained in quite some time. They were completely submerged in water and the positive cable was ripped clean away from the Minn Kota. Thanks Scott!...but we were determined to get on the lake this day. With a couple hand tools and some electrical tape we somehow Mcguyvered our way to electrical power. The two batteries in boat were close to dead, so we borrowed one from the pontoon(it was put back in pontoon) hooked it up and were off. Sunny and 70's all day. The fish were active, but also very small. I attached a couple pics of decent ones. I believe we will be back Sunday. We will have to try some new techniques, maybe fish the open water more, or do some jigging to find the big ones! Scottland might want to test the batteries, Danny said they may be fried from being under water! Enjoy!

I haven't been on here in awhile. I got a new job where I'm working 60 plus hours a week. I had to make a big change in my life style in what I'm doing in this world. Gotta grow up a bit. I will be posting more often though. I had a chance to do a little fishing with my son. He is getting getting crazy about getting out on the boat and catching fish. That is all he wants to do. And go to the bass pro shop! Haha Anyways, he are a few pics of him. I will have some fattys to post later on!

The day started at about 4:15 A.M. Ricky Dance and myself ( Dan Van Dam) headed over to pick up our good friend Chris (SKEET) Reese. After waking young Chris with a phone call we got rollin northbound. We were headed to Deep Lake with a quick stop at Scotty Saasage's place to pick up a much needed trolling motor. We get to Scotty's, Lake Fairfield itself, and upon entering the yard we instantly notice the beautiful lake staring us right in the face. Its now about 6:15, theres no way Scotty will be up at this hour right... As we make our way thru the yard we see him walking out with coffee. We tell him the plan and to our surprise he says, "why dont ya guys just fish here?" At Lake Fairfield! You dont have to ask us twice. Needless to say we were on the water fast. We were floatin around in what we call the "Cove" and Ricky hits one on a deep drop so we switch to open water fishing. Now we are in the exact opposite cove of Scotty's and Ricky, using his Oakley Structure Scan, spots some submerged x-mas trees. We start fishin them hard and the results can be seen in the pictures above. All in all we caught around 25-30 fish in a 20ft by 20ft radius near these trees. Skeet was catchin em so fast we thought he was mannin' two poles. Another great day on the lake and I cant wait to go again as always.

SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG TO POST, I KNOW YOU HAVE ALL BEEN HANGING OFF THE EDGE OF YOUR SEATS TO SEE THIS BEAST. WELL HERE IT IS. THANKS TO DAN AND STEVE FOR THE ASSISTANCE. THIS WAS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST NORTH AMERICAN SPORT FISH I HAVE EVER CAUGHT-SHOUT OUT TO LAKE FAIRFIELD! DANNY DID A LITTLE RESEARCH AND THE LENGHT OF THIS FISH I WOULD SAY 24-26INCHES SHOULD WEIGH AROUND 6-7LBS. WHICH MEANS FUCKIN HUGE, HAHA! THE SHOE IS 12 IINCHES SO ITS GOOD BAROMETER. ANYWAYS PEEP THE PICS, AND WE HAVE NOW OPENED A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF SPECIES TO ATTACK AT LAKE FAIRFIELD. THE ASSOCIATION SHOULD BE HAPPY TO KNOW THE WALLEYE MADE IT BACK IN TO THE LAKE SAFE AND SOUND.

Took out the youth today for a little bassin. We hit up one of the ponds in Aurora. I brought my littler brother, and Desiree's son Julian. We got up early, well for a Saturday on Memorial Day weekend. We were parked and set up by 9:15 I would say. The landscapers were finishing up the lawn as we walked down to the water. Pretty windy at first, and fairly slow. I caught one, then Julian got one a bobber and nightcrawler. I'm sure it was the biggest fish he's ever caught. Austin got one a little bit later. We walked around the pond hitting all the spots. Finally hit a good 3o to 4o minute stretch were 6-7 fish were probably caught. At one point they each had a nice one at the same time. Austin was the big winner with 8 fish and a nice prob 2 1/2 LB'er. Overall morning worked out!

Nice little Monday night you fellas had, keep it up. Checkin in real quick with a LB Bass post. I do have to say the week has been active. I can only imagine what Fairfield is like right now. Not sure if these smaller ponds have different patterns than the larger areas of water. Last weeek the bass around the banks basically looked at me like a fool and wanted nothing to do with my offering. You can see a lot of fish in the water at this spot. This week the action was back. Each day I have caught a handful of fish with little more than 25 minutes water time. I HATE GOING BACK TO WORK! I attached some of the bass, and a couple pictures of "Phil's" Pond. This little bastard is from the terrible Smith Road spot, Danny and Reese know about this. That's the old Quantum Escalade 11 bearing spinning reel, and a Bass Pro Shops medium heaby action, IM6 rod.
