Why Mark Zona makes Michigan his home base
« on: June 15, 2011, 06:48:12 PM »

Z-Train - the slightly high energy TV host of Zona's Awesome Fishing Show says he tolerates Michigan's long winters for one reason and one reason only (well, actually 4 in this picture)!! These guys right here!! The big old slaunch smallies or Northern Michigan... good enough incentive for anyone to choose to live in the Great Lakes state!!

Mark Zona, Z, the Z-Train with friend professional bass angler Byron Velvick (The Bachelor and the 'win big or go down in flames' angler) and 4 of their slauncher buddies TOAD smallmouth bass from Northern Michigan - 5 for 25 says Z!! These were 4 of the 5 they culled up to on an amazingly perfect June day that would make anyone think they can be a famous TV host and angler too.

But then, you don't see all the long, hard work that goes into setting up and making a day like this happen on queue in front of the cameras and everything!! Amazing is all I can say!! Make sure you stay tuned to Zona's Awesome Fishing Show on The Outdoor Channel and follow Z on Facebook too like I do!!

I can't wait until this episode comes out!! Probably January 2012 but plenty to check out until then on www.markzona.com and Zona's Awesome Fishing Show!

You know, after watching other anglers whack TOAD smallie slaunchers for a few day, I just have to sneak over to my favorite lake (Mullett if you haven't been paying attention) and catch a few big Northern Michigan smallies of my own!



I'm with Z!! This is why I live in Michigan too and can last the long, cold winters!!!

Not that it isn't fun watching the Z-Train in action. NEVER a dull moment there!! NEVER!

This almost 5 pound smallie was sitting beside a big boulder in about 9 feet of water and could not resist an Xtreme Bass Tackle X-worm that floated wacky-rigged down upon its head!
