Grosse Savanne Toads

At Grosse Savanne Lodge in Louisiana, the surrounding marshy waters are so plentiful, and so eager to inhale a toad worked enticingly along the surface, that Shaw and his guest Dennis Tietje can experiment with different techniques, particularly with he delayed hooksets so necessary for successful fishing with toad lures. It's like batting practice for tournament anglers -- and Grosse Savanne's weedy, bass-filled bayous are the pitching machine.
