Wisconsin Opener

I got out with the fishers of men club for some walleye and bass action. Bass pundit dave Maas brought my little bass boat down for some bassin' he has the full report HERE
I had guessed the fishin would be tough with the cold clear water. I thought finesse tactics like 4 pound mono, and light weights with small plastics would be the ticket. I was partly right. I got a few smaller fish on that and pike, but my only two keeper bass gave in to a 64th ounce plastic jig with 2 pount test!
No one in our group got any walleyes.
My trip was saved by old reliable panfish! I got plenty of good keeper crappies and bluegills up to almost 10 inches.

nice sunset on the cruise up friday night

First pike, I thought it was a walleye when it stayed deep but no dice..
