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.

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.
