    Hi Anglers I hope you and your family are doing fine and hopefully back to fishing the lakes you enjoy. The summer fishing season is finally here – something many of us have been excitedly waiting for during the forced hiatus. It is very nice to see some normalcy returning to our fishing industry. Thanks to all of our readers for sharing their fishing adventures in the forums. To kick off the season, our summer issue features one of the many anglers that contributes to essential workers in these challenging times. WesternBass wants to thank Clara as well as the many, many others. Please keep your local mom and pop businesses and the people and places that support them, in mind for your needs. We are all on the road to recovery together! Good luck on the water! Wayne
