Rain? What rain? Marty Magone goes fishing no matter what

From the shores of Virginia's Lake Gaston comes word that my friend Marty Magone decided to go bass fishing in the middle of a monsoon-like rain Tuesday morning. The man doesn't know when to say "I quit" no matter what the weather is like.

"I had a decent day, considering the skies dumped more than a few inches of water on me.," he said. "The pattern seems to be crankbaits in the Baby Bass color, worked in and around small coves in Great Creek. This 5-pound, 2-ounce Gaston bass made my morning. The water temperature was 50 degrees." One thing is for sure, we could use a prolonged warm spell that would bust open the bass fishing for everybody.

Fishing in the rain. Marty doesn't mind it one bit.

That's what is so good about Marty.  When I said, "Brother, I need a bass picture for the web site," he went to work and delivered the goods.
