Wisconsin bass fishing can be fun… and it can also be extremely challenging. This year when we went “up nort”, we were greeted with extremely hot temperatures – and 80 degree water. That was followed by storms, cool mornings, and a drop of about 10 degrees, all within 3 days.
Couple that with the fact that we were fishing an extremely clear, spring fed lake with extremely clear water… and you’ve got a recipe for one heck of a challenging trip.
But, we did what we had to do, put our heads down and kept grinding.
As you can see here, a handful of techniques worked, and we were able to make contact in areas that were similar to where we caught just a few good fish the 3 or 4 days prior.
Hard work makes victory so much sweeter!
