Vacation time

Patty Kehde with one of the many Minnesota smallmouth bass she has shown me how to catch across the decades that we have fished together in the Northwoods.

Patty, my wife, is taking me fishing in the Northwoods of Minnesota during the last week of July.

She will show me how she wields a 2 1/2-inch ZinkerZ on a 1/16-ounce Gopher jig and executes a retrieve that she calls a slow-roll-and-deadstick presentation and catches largemouth bass and smallmouth bass.

Therefore, there will be no Midwest Finesse columns published until August 1.
