GONE FISHING WITH JERRY MILLER
Frank Lusk is one of the most patient and thorough worm fishermen I have fished with. We live in a time when everybody is in a hurry. You’ve probably heard the statement, “Hurry up, I don’t have all minute!” That’s how a lot of fishermen fish – in a hurry.
Personally I like to chunk and wind, throw and go, and burn up the water with my lures. I’m in a hurry to catch bass. When bass are active these methods work.
