Fun fishing over the weekend, finally!

Recommended Posts

Two weeks ago I was up in Minocqua prefishing for the WI Bass Nation state tournament. I ground it out all week catching dinky bass. They actually took the size limit off for the tournament to match the lake, and thank god they did. My weight for the 10 bass I weighed in over 2 days was 10.20 lbs. That left me in 53rd out of 82. Sad thing was a solid 3 pounder would have moved me up into the teens, it was just brutal. Anyway, after dealing with that for 7 days straight, it was nice to come home and fish for some normal sized fish again. I was busy the first part of the week catching up on work that I missed, but I finally had a chance to get out at least a little bit Thursday through Sunday.  I made up for lost time catching some nice fish. Thursday I caught a super chunky 17 1/2", Friday 6 of my 11 bass were over 17" with 2 over 18 and a few other 16's mixed in. Best 5 would have been pushing 17 lbs. Saturday I had 1 over 18" and one just a hair under 18". Sunday I only got to fish a few hours on a lake that's not a very good bass lake, but I managed to catch 5 with a really nice 16 1/2" but it wasn't quite photo worthy. Man am I glad to be back!

Nice catches! Glad someone is enjoying the fun!! :) 

Can't wait to break the drought of no bass fishing
for me. But alas, so much soccer travel, mountain
bike travel, every. single. weekend. makes it tough.

Thanks, they don't make for as good of fish porn as what you catch down there, but they just don't grow as big up here!

I hope you get out soon. It sounds like you're a really busy guy. Hopefully there's a break in there somewhere for some time for fishing!
