I don't claim to be an expert fisherman ... just a guy who loves to fish and has been blessed for his efforts. I learned a long time ago that in fishing, and in much of life, you get out of it what you put into it. I work hard when fishing, I study a lot, and always try to learn something on every outing. I hope you can use the information I post on this blog to learn something as well. Thanks for following along!

Got out early today and caught a 37" muskie at 6:45. Then got this 22" largemouth at 7:45. Ended up with about 15 bass, a northern and a muskie. Also lost another muskie and a big bass that broke me off on a post. All were caught on a Berkley Hollow Belly Swin Bait in bluegill color.

Lake Waubesa - September 22, 2009

Got out tonight for a few hours. Caught a nice 18" on a jig, but the action was very slow. We got over 3" of rain today. Had a monster follow a DT-1 after dark. It saw me and spooked as the bait approached me. BIG fish!

September 4, 2009 - Lake Waubesa

Fished about 3 hours tonight after work. Only caught 3 bass but the 21" in the pic made it worthwhile. Made 5 casts with a banjo under one particular dock that has produced before and never had a tick. Changed to a swim jig with a Sabertube tail and had a hit in the first cast in the same spot. I didn't get the hook in so I threw it right back in there and the fish just exploded on it. He got rapped around 2 different posts but I was able to pull him.
