Jason Dudek is now a Minnesota-based bass angler but grew up fishing for salmon and trout on Lake Ontario in New York. He competed in his first bass tournament in 1991 as a senior in high school on Lake Champlain. After graduating from college, he continued his journey of competitive fishing, starting in what is now the BFL before moving to Minnesota in 2000. Since that time, his career has continued to build, and he has competed at the Pro/Am and national professional levels.
Jason was in our office recently so we took a few minutes to learn more about his approach to bass fishing. Read on to learn more, and be sure to check out Jason’s tips for his favorite lake here!
