Winner Mark Koehn and H2O Adventures Trip Recap!

Well, where to start?

First off, I never win anything, so imagine my shock and excitement waking to an email saying i won a trip to fish with an FLW pro, on lake Champlain, compliments of Dr.Chris Smith at Everything Smallmouth! Which, by the way, is a GREAT website!!

Bit of a long flight coming all the way from California, but the amount and size of Smallies we caught made it all worth it! The first day was blowin 25mph with 35mph gusts, white caps occasionally rolling over the bow of the boat! 21ft Ranger Challenger, Evinrude 250 H.O…flat out gettin it even across the rough water…Did that stop us? Absolutely not! Fish On after Fish On!

Upstate New York on Lake Champlain with a great guide and great all around individual, Howard Hammonds! It was a treat to fish with someone of his caliber. He was very knowledgeable and informative about any questions I had. Even gave me some insider info!! We all know how guarded us fishermen are of our successful techniques! Any of us die-hard fishermen would’ve found this trip exceptionally gratifying and definitely was a game changer for my semi advanced skill level.

I arrived on a Sunday, we fished Monday and Tuesday. I had a flight out on Wednesday evening so he took me out for an extra day before driving me back to the airport in Burlington Vermont. We had no wind, warm weather, and blue bird skies. Once again, we laid them to waste!

I feel blessed to have won this trip, courtesy of Dr.Chris Smith and Everything Smallmouth!

Thank you so very much to Howard Hammonds, his better half Joan for awesome cooking and hospitality, and Dr. Chris Smith at everything Smallmouth! Tight lines everyone, Fish On!!!!

Thanks for the kind words Mark and I’m glad you had a blast! Thanks also to Howard who donated his time for this great promotion!
