Carl Albert High School football coach Gary Rose shared some photos of his summer fishing trip to Canada.
Rose and his fishing partner, Matt Evans of Midwest City, pounded the smallmouth bass for nearly a week on the Seine River Chain near Atikokan, Ontario.
The anglers caught about 350 smallmouths in 5 1/2 days of fishing, many of them 3-pound plus bronzebacks, Rose reports.
Banning Lake, Perch Lake, and Calm Lake were the best waters on the Seine River Chain, Rose said.
