Chilly (32 degrees!) AM on the WI River South of Stevens Point, WI.  Started at 7am... still on the breezy, chilly water. Downsized with hooks and bait (diced sucker minnows) and missed 3 cat bites early... then boated 6 in a row! ( I'M ON A BUN... no wait... I'M ON A ROLL!!!) ;-p

Still can ALMOST feel my fingers so I'll be out here awhile longer... Yes... I AM NUTS!!!

Tight (FROZEN) Lines, ALL!

Fished from shore, just a guess on water temp.  Have never caught a catfish before, having only tried once before.  Surprise!  caught a 17 1/2 inch and a 19 inch.  Also one small walleye.  Cold temps., but wanted to use some leftover minnows from a fruitless trip up north.  Used a floating jig with 3" minnows.  For a short 90 minutes fishing from shore, I was happy.  BTW I was south of the Stevens Point dam on the Wis. river.

Well... On a drizzly, chilly wedding anniversary AM on the WI River south of Stevens Point, WI, I notched catfish #400 on the open water season! Not a comfortable nor gangbusters fishing session, but any day being on the water is a good day! Got 1 solid channel cat, a shorty walleye, and a goofy looking little mudpuppy! ;-p

 Might give it a try again tomorrow AM (weather permitting!)...Fall fishing is FUN but it's too darn short!

Tight Lines, All!

Well... a day off of school means... CATTIN' on the chilly WI River south of Stevens Point, WI! Throwin' live/ diced sucker minnows, fiber bait, and crawlers at 'em... One sluggish 24" cat to show for my efforts... #399 on the season! :-/

Hopefully have a few more chances at #400 this weekend!

FISH ONNNNNNN!!

The fish I actually caught was on a rattler sante rig using fiber bait .. besides the cut bait that’s all the hit rattler
