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!

Summer Bass Bite is Slow in Developing

Water temps are just starting to climb into the 60's and as a result the bass bite in southern Wisconsin is starting out a little slower. Weed growth on the Madison chain is minimal to this point. I'm hoping to spend the majority of the Memorial Day weekend on the water.

New Rig!

Big day for me today. I picked up a new fishing rig. Now I get to deck it out with all of the fun stuff!

Done Intentionally Catching Cats

The pre-spawn cat bite is finally slowing down. Most of the fish that are left are smaller males (5-6 lbs.). Last few times out were pretty decent. Got my personal best about a week ago ... 37.5" and 26.5 lb channel with an enormous head!

Monster Cat Bite Continues

Fought the wind last night and found a ton of cats stacked up on the wind blown shoreline. Caught about 15, of which only 3 were smaller than 30". I caught my personal best about 2:00 pm ... a 35" and 22 lb beast!
