I grew up pounding the lakes and ponds of New Jersey for largemouth. By watching Bill Dance on T.V. and passing a ton of time on water, I learned a thing or two about bass fishing, but there’s no comparison to spending a few days on a boat with a pro. And on a trip to Mississippi with Cabela’s last fall, that’s exactly what I got to do. We fished Pickwick Lake with legendary angler and guide Roger Stegall. Few people know Pickwick better than Stegall does. He taught me about the lake and the fishery, and I picked up a few bass-fishing tricks from him, too.
