A Mesan & Three Fishermen

Bill Warman

I am truly grateful for the many accomplishments of my fishing life. I owe my basic knowledge of fishing to my grandfather, my Uncle Fritz, and Chief Smokin' Joe an Indian guide from Toronto, Canada.

I received my first fishing pole at Christmas at grandpa’s house when I was four years old. I was very excited about my new gift. When I was young I would go to church with my grandparents. After church, I would go to my grandma’s home and she would give us chores to do. I would help Grandpa cut the grass and load the car with fishing gear. In the meantime, grandma would make us sandwiches for our lunch. Every Sunday grandpa and I would go fishing. I remember many times being on our favorite lake which was WingFoot. The one story that stands out was Grandpa and I went into the boathouse. We were catching fish on every cast that day. A local newspaper man was interviewing fisherman for The Akron Beacon Journal. He asked me how many fish did we catch? I said too many to count. As the interview finished my grandpa told me you are going to be in the paper. The following weeks fishing report had our story in it.

Every year, my Grandpa would take me fishing at Rice Lake in Canada. We fished for bass, walleye, muskies, and northern s. Every time we would arrive at our cabin in Canada, a fishing guide by the name of Chief Smokin' Joe would meet us. The next morning we would all go fishing. Grandpa, Chief Smokin', and Uncle Fritz. These three fisherman would teach me about fishing.

1. Uncle Fritz would teach me about making lures, the lure movements, and the colors the fish see the easiest.

2. Chief Smokin' Joe taught me how to read the weather and water conditions on a regular basis. He would point out things like the wave movement, the wind direction etc.

3. Grandpa taught me to be persistent and have patience on the water.

I would not have learned what I know without these three fisherman. These were the building blocks I received when I was young which allowed me to catch these trophy bass. As life progressed, I built on these blocks. Fishing today at the age of 46 has become easy. It is a natural thing, a root of my up bringing. I understand the fishing industry, methods, politics, and life stories. I am truly grateful to these great fisherman. They took the time to teach me about an exciting sport.

To catch a Trophy bass you must have sound basic principals of fishing. You must also study the movement and patterns of these bass. The knowledge of these patterns can be found within this Hall Of Fame with the greatest big bass anglers of all, and the rising stars of tomorrow. You will get information from "Fish Chris" Wolfgram, Bob Crupi, Cody Pierce(an amAZing rising star!), Doug Hannon "The Bass Professor," Bobbie & Butch Gayle, Javad "J.T." Trew, John Deckard, Paul Duclos and Mike Long.

This is a trophy hunters paradise for information. I am grateful to my peers for this induction into the Hall Of Fame. I am looking forward to teaching you and your children how to catch these trophy bass on a regular basis.
