1. Big jump and then went for a ride into some stumps. Had to untangle him off the log and then reel in some more while the boat rammed into another stump. Classic ...more Smallie mess hahaha.

      Nice fish man. I haven't been up to Lake Wisconsin in many years, but I spent about 30 weeks of my life there over the course of my life. I've caught more ...more than a few smallmouth there myself, along with many walleye, crappie, and tons of white bass, and my first and only muskie. What a fantastic place to enjoy the outdoors. That's where I learned many of the lessons about fishing and how to be a better human being from my Uncle's Jim and Ray, along with my father. All of them are pushing up daisies at this point, but one year I'll make it back to there to add more memories. Enjoy the New Year and good fishing to you and yours.
  2. Got my cousin Matt on some river Smallies! Nice to actually have some success when you bring someone out- usually bad luck with me hahaha...

  3. Details: 15 in. Walleye with a jig and minnows

  4. First walleye on a jigging rap for me... Awesome battle on the St Croix Eyecon and was able to detect the subtle bite on the erratic drop action in some current. ...more Not sure I’d have felt the hit in that scenario without a good walleye rod hahaha. I don’t walleye fish a ton so this was my best in quite a few years!

      I love those jigging raps!
  5. Fall Smallie feeding frenzy is on. This fish had a big ol’belly. Looked like me after Sunday football snacking hahaha. Typical fall pattern- found Smallies stacked ...more on shallow sunbathed flats adjacent to deep holes with current. Did some working from the “boat office” so look’n good with my headset on oh yeah...

      The Wisconsin river systems is just packed full of foo right now. The little walleye on Castle Rock and Petenwell Lake just puke out the minnows when you catch them

  8. Topwater season started this morning for me! This chunk fully cleared the water on the hit. Love it. Found fish in 4-9’ depths with best top water fishing at ...more dawn and then got a couple more mid morning on jointed off set spinners.
