Julys of the Past

Julys of the Past

For anglers who want to get a historical perspective of  how, when, and where Midwest finesse anglers caught largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass in Julys of the past, we have assembled a short bibliography (with Internet links) to our July guides to Midwest finesse fishing for 2012, 2013,  2014, and 2015.

We have also included a link to our column entitled "Month-by-Month Guide to Midwest Finesse for Bass."  Within this 8,809-word column, there is a 780-word synopsis about fishing in July in northeastern Kansas before 2012.

Our July guides feature logs by anglers who employ Midwest finesse tactics in Arkansas, Canada, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Texas, and West Virginia.

Here are the links to four monthly guides that focus on July and two links to other Midwest Finesse columns that focus on July:
