Once we got into Kentucky, Drew made the recommendation to stop at a little taco stand. Boy was he right! Either, we have been on the road too long, or these were the best tacos of Alex’s and I’s life. I bet the latter. We pulled into the red roof inn, uploaded footage from the day, and passed out to wake up to fish the next morning with Drew.
Just in time for the Laurel vs. Yanny Debate
The next day we met Drew at Laurel River Lake. Timing was quite perfect since “Laurel” and “Yanny” video was going viral. You can see what I am talking about here.
We got to Laurel River Lake about an hour early, so of course we did some bank fishing with the cameras off. It felt odd not having a camera on me. Must be getting use to this. Alex and I missed a few bedded smallmouths, but still great to disconnect for a little and just focus about fishing.
A Beautiful Place to Catch Some Bass
Around 9:30am Drew met us at the boat ramp and we put his new Triton Bass Boat to work. The fishing “catching” started almost immediately once we got into the first cut of standing timber. Alex and I are from Ohio. There are not many lakes that have this type of standing timber near us. It was quite cool fishing between these aging dead trees with such crystal-clear waters. We continued to move in and out of Laurel River Lake’s fingers catching more and more decent sized largemouth and smallmouth Bass.
The weather parameters lined up perfectly and I got my first bedding Bass of the year on Drews favorite lure. Drew was so impactful for this leg of the journey. He is by far the most knowledgeable bass angler I know with great tips and tricks for catching Bass. Thank you again Drew.
Make sure you catch Drew breaking down his setup in detail on the video.
Shout-out to Alex for starting to take the grind to a hold new level. “Gotta get those shots man!”
