Summer largemouth bass fishing comes with it’s fair share of challenges. Take sloppy, disgusting algae blooms for example. They’re gross. Now reduce the amount of water in a lake because of the heat, and that thick snot on top becomes a disgusting green blanket of dead bugs and line-discoloring stink.
The good news though, it it provides a lot of overhead cover for largemouth bass that are sitting up shallow… and it also hides YOU, as you approach them. This sloppy bass was caught on a simple jigworm 2 or 3 feet off the bank. I was using 8lb fluorocarbon but my entire spool was colored green after just a few casts, and this was on a spinning reel combo. Actually, it was the BBFF pole that we fixed in a previous video.
I can’t wait for summer.

Some days… it all comes together…
Fishing is always fun – especially in Wisconsin – but it isn’t always as exciting as we’d like it to be. However, the slow days are what makes us appreciate the days when everything seems to come together, and you find loads of fish… like on this awesome morning.
