I have fished with Don—— many years ago.
You are right, he was a desciple of Buck perry.
I used to own a marina at Lake Pomme de Terrence in Missouri.
We formed a Muskie club, and stocked the lake with pure tiger muskies——then invited a Minnesotan Muskie club to our first tournament. About 20 of their boats came down.
Don and his partner used all of Periry’s tactics and lures(spoonplugs) and caught more fish than all the locals combined——and in waters none of them had been fishing. Amazing,
Then, they bass fished for only a few hours, using the same tactics and lures, but different water——and all related to “structure.”
Get a copy of Perry’s small book set of eight, called “spoonplugging” and you’ll get all your questions answered.
