I fished this weekend in northern Wisconsin. It was cold. Each week that passes destroys my spirit a little more. Oh well, Spring has to come (I think) and will just be that much sweeter!

I managed to catch a couple nice browns. I fished alone on Saturday. Got one fish around 16". I fished with a friend Sunday morning and got this fish:

A nice 15" brown. With the cold weather and spooky fish, I think the camo is key to hide me from the fish :)

My friend went off to work and I kept fishing. I got one more of similar size. All three fish came on an emerald shiner pattern fished slow and deep.

As I was waiting for my friend to get off work so we could meet back up and fish the evening, this is what I was looking at:

Weather was garbage, but you can't change that. It was still nice to be on the water and get a few fish.

Pure awesomeness. Glad to see you are making lemonade.

Winter won't give up here either. The "big one" has just arrived, expecting over 20". We got about a foot last week, which melted off fast. It's back to back cold fronts with significant snow.

Way to go Kyle, it's good to see that fish are being caught in places other than PA.:)
When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."
