  1. Pike and Bass Strikes from the Drone!

    Hooked up with Kyle AKA Wisconsin Fisherman to do some pike and bass fishing in northern WI. Caught a few snakes and some decent bass and Kyle ended up hooking into and catching a nice, thick 30" pike. Had a great time out in the boat and got some awesome drone footage!
  2. Big Bass Starting to put on the Feed Sac!

    Fall bass are just about getting ready to start putting on the feed sac! Hit up a local lake to do some kayak fishing the last two weekends and had some good success. First day I caught a variety of sizes of bass on jigs, frogs, and spinnerbaits including one pig and even a bluegill on a spinnerbait! The next weekend was a bit tougher conditions. Followed a cold front, wind picked up, and overall water temp was down about 12 degrees. Managed a few small bass early, and ended up catching a slob on a spinnerbait right before I was going to leave. The bass only get bigger from here on out. Get out and chase some big fall bass. What's the weirdest thing you've ever caught on a spinnerbait? Drop a comment below.
  3. Devil's Lake North Dakota Trip Day Two

    Footage from our second day at Devils Lake North Dakota. Conditions were a bit tougher than the day before. Cooled down quite a bit and the wind picked up more. Unfortunately after the first hour or so, we ended up breaking off the trolling motor on a rock pile, but have to give a lot of credit to our guide Pete Harsh for still getting us on some nice walleye while trolling with crankbaits instead. Overall it was a great trip and everyone had a great time! Check out footage from the first day if you haven't!
  4. Devil's Lake North Dakota Trip Day one

    Traveled to Devil's Lake North Dakota from Central Wisconsin with the group of guys I work with. We stayed at Woodland Resort and hooked up with Mitchell's Guide Service. The first day I had Steve Dahl aka Zippy as my guide and he was excellent! The fishing conditions were a bit tough but we managed to get our limit of walleye and one giant pike trolling bottom bouncers with spinners and crawlers. Stay tuned for footage from the second day where Legendary Walleye Tournament angler Pete Harsh is my guide! I would highly recommend Mitchell's Guide Service and Woodland Resort.
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
