  1. Wisconsin Summertime Bassin'

    Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!
  2. Pulling big bass out of the weeds

    This was the third morning of my trip up to Northern Wisconsin out of my Feelfree Lure 11.5 kayak over the 4th of July. Had great conditions on a small lake and ended up hooking into a few good big bass on spinnerbaits and topwater frogs. The last bass I caught demolished my frog and I ended up pulling in a ton of weeds with it!
  3. Great wi bass and pike in Northern WI! Kicked off a 5 day trip to Northern Wisconsin around the 4th of July in my Feelfree Lure 11.5 fishing kayak on a small lake and had an amazing morning! Tossed a spinnerbait the whole morning and had great action around weedline edges and the shore line. This small lake didn't disappoint, I caught a lot of big bass and even hooked into two really nice pike. It was a great morning and weekend overall!
  4. Topwater Bass and Pike in Northern WI! Made a trip to Northern Wisconsin and got out in my Feelfree Lure 11.5 kayak for some great topwater fishing action! The bass and pike were hungry, ending up catching over 20 pike and 4 bass. I started out tossing a topwater frog and after catching one pike and missing a few, a bigger pike decided to bite through my line. I switched over to a buzzbait and it was game on the rest of the morning! The wind started really picking up and I ended up running out of bays and protected areas to fish so I had to call it quits for the day. Please hit subscribe!
  5. Buzzbait and Spinnerbait Action!

    Yep, I have a difficult time going for any other species just because any time I try I start seeing good bass spots. Lilly pads are my favorite!
  6. Buzzbait and Spinnerbait Action!

    Hit up one of my favorite lakes in central WI to do some kayak bass fishing. It was a nice calm morning and had some decent action on buzzbaits and spinnerbaits. Saw some signs of spawning bass and unfortunately it was tough to catch any of the bigger females, but managed quite a few decent sized males. Catching bass on topwater is a blast. I also managed to catch my first couple fish standing up in my new Feelfree Lure 11.5. The surface water temp ranged from 79-82 degrees. Most of the bass I caught on a booyah buzzbait. I also caught a few on a Nichols Lures spinnerbait and a Nichols Lures swim jig. Overall it was a fun morning. Stay tuned for more videos! Please hit subscribe!
  7. Kayak Bass Fishing in Brutal Winds

    thanks guys! I agree about the wind blown side of the lake, especially in a kayak. This lake is great, it's a flooded cranberry reservoir so that's the reason for all the flooded timber. I've caught some absolute pigs out of here, unfortunately nothing huge yet this year!
  8. Kayak Bass Fishing in Brutal Winds

    Hit up one of my favorite local lakes in central Wisconsin in Mid may to try for some bass in my kayak. It was tough fishing because of the brutal wind and this lake is wide open. Found all of the bass really shallow and near weeds or wood. I ended up catching four within about a half an hour all on the wind blown side of the lake. Unfortunately, it was pretty tough to fish on that side because of the wind and with storms approaching I figured I should head back closer to the launch.
  9. Last Ice | First Fish(Northern wi Slabs)

    Today my brother Josh and I hit up Solberg Lake in northern Wisconsin. Little backstory -- I had taken Josh ice fishing probably 4-5 times this winter and we hadn't had much success together. I think it was a combination of the wrong timing, bad conditions, and just plain bad luck. There's a reason they call it fishing and not catching. Today was a different story and I was finally able to get Josh on a decent school of bluegills and crappies. If you can't tell, we were both pretty excited when Josh finally iced his first fish! We only fished for about an hour and a half and caught some pretty nice slabs. Didn't seem to matter too much what we used this day, but I caught all my fish on a small tungsten jig with a pink plastic. Hoping to get on the ice at least a couple more times this winter. Please like, comment, and subscribe! Stay tuned for more and check out my other videos.
  10. This place is absolutely awesome. We had a blast catching beautiful trout in anywhere from 60-160 feet of water. Unreal how clear the water is, you could literally see your jig 30' down the hole. Check this out, hope you guys enjoy! Drop a like and hit subscribe if you enjoyed the video!
  11. Share your Favorite Ice fishing Photos

    This was a nice surprise on to catch this on a tip-up. Had a huge sucker minnow on and moved the tip-up about 3 times before I ended up settling on a spot. If anyone is interested in seeing the video of catching it you can find it here:
  12. Catching Slab Crappies Below a dam!

    Had a couple hours to fish for an afternoon and ended up finding a little patch of ice below a dam that was holding lots of nice crappie. Most of the time I couldn't even mark my jig on my flasher. I ended up catching all of them on a medium sized tungsten jig with a small pink plastic. Good day for catch and release!
