Junes of the Past

Junes of the Past

Since 2012, we have published 136,951 words that describe how, when, and where Midwest finesse anglers have caught largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass during the month of June at various types of waterways across the United States and Canada.

Rick Allen of Dallas; Yahel Anderson of Shawnee, Kansas; Tom Bett of Oshkosh, Wisconsin; Burton Bosley of Sutton, West Virginia; Norman Brown of Lewisville, Texas; Terry Claudell of Overland Park, Kansas; Charlie Croom of Fayetteville, Arkansas; Roger Farish of Highland Village, Texas; Jim Farrow of Lenexa, Kansas; Brent Frazee of Parkville, Missouri; Merit Goodman of Eudora, Kansas; Bob Hardy of St. Paul, Minnesota; Matt Hardy of St. Paul, Minnesota; Rick Hebenstreit of Shawnee, Kansas; Clyde Holscher of Topeka, Kansas; Bob Gum of Kansas City, Kansas; Gary Johnson of Claremont, California; Dwight Keefer of Phoenix, Arizona; Lakin Kehde of Sedalia, Missouri; Ned Kehde of Lawrence, Kansas; Casey Kidder of Topeka, Kansas; Dave Mull of Paw Paw, Michigan; Travis Myers of Paw Paw, West Virginia; Daniel Nussbaum of Charleston, South Carolina; Nathan Parker of Tulsa, Oklahoma; Travis Perret of Overland Park, Kansas; Dave Petro of Lecompton, Kansas; Mike Poe of Siler City, North Carolina; John Redding of Lawrence, Kansas; Drew Reese of Rantoul, Kansas; Steve Reideler of Denton, Texas; Walt Tegtmeier of Lenexa, Kansas; John Thomas of Denton, Texas; Andrew Trembath of Parkville, Missouri; Camille Trinidad of Kansas City, Kansas; Brian Waldman of Indianapolis, Indiana; and Bill Ward of Warsaw, Missouri, have contributed their insights to how, when, and where they caught largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass since June of 2012.

We have noted in years past that our monthly guides to Midwest fishing can provide anglers with a historical perspective that they have never had before. To help anglers to garner this historical perspective, we began compiling these guides to the months of the past in 2015 at the behest of some members of the Finesse News Network who wanted to know if there have been any noticeable and noteworthy changes in the fishing that we write about in our monthly guides to Midwest finesse fishing.

As anglers examine these many words about Junes of the past, they should be mindful that the locations where anglers caught black bass and the presentations that they employed can be similar from June to June, but they can also be slightly different and even radically disparate. As we have explained several times in the past, Mother Nature and mankind can create havoc with how, when, and where Midwest finesse anglers catch their quarries during the 30 days of June.


Anglers can read these 136,951 words by employing the links to the eight Midwest finesse columns below. And below those links, there are some photographs that feature a few of the black bass that Midwest finesse anglers caught during Junes of the past.
