Dennis Ansell

Member since February 2016 Sturgeon Bay, United States
Background
My father taught me how to fish for largemouth bass with plastic worms and I became interested in tournament fishing. As I fished more tournaments for different species I became a consistent multi species angler.
Techniques
My preferred method is using artificials for all species including perch,walleye, largemouth and smallmouth bass, Northern pike and Musky on Green Bay and trout and salmon on Lake Michigan. Both trolling and casting methods are used.

The fish weren’t biting.  I’m convinced if anybody could get the fish to bite, it was Dennis.  He tried everything. ...
