Just to verify...there is no closed season on bass in WI, correct? I know the season closes as far as keeping them but we can catch them all year, to my understanding. If thats not the case, some info would be appreciated. Thanks and tight lines.

I thought the bass fishing before opener was a done deal. Did it go to a vote and if it did not pass why?

I know Winnebago system, parts of Wisconsin river system and Mississippi system are open year round. Just check the lake or river you plan on fishing.

Just looked at regulations and bass season for largemouth starts first sat in may. Certain areas are open year round. Didn't read anything about year round catch and release. Check your regs

It is legal to fish for BASS before opener in 2014 as long as its catch and release!! This was signed into law last year.

Yeah...ive caught pike and bass on beetle spins during the off season. Just frustrating that we cant just bass fish when the ice is out. Id let em go anyways so whats the big deal? Does nothing to help the fisheries by having a closed season on em. I can see it for more sensitive species like muskies, but bass? Common.
