I caught some big fish on Fox yesterday. The bass moved back under the docks so that was awesome! Caught 3-4 big bass under docks and then went pike fishing and caught a couple of good ones. Youtube would only let me upload a 15 min video so this vid is missing some fish that I had to edit out. I know its hunting season but the fish are still biting!
Justin, this is the video you are looking for. Nice YouTube series, highly recommend everyone subscribes. The main host is Lee Tauchen, who was co host of the popular Bigfish365 YouTube show from a few years ago.
You actually don't know how many times I go to set the hook and then I turn the GoPro on and I lose the fish LOL! I have also set the hook and bumped my GoPro on my chest and then I lose the fish. The thing is I have met some of my best friends, learned new fishing spots and made some of the best memories I will ever have because of my little fishing channel. I might be a small channel now but I have the most amazing subscribers and a small loyal following and I believe it's going to keep growing. The memories and the friendships are more important to me than a few fish.
I got out for a couple of hours yesterday and flipped jigs and senkos under docks. The fish have moved out from the docks but I had such a short time to fish I couldn't really switch up my game plan. We still caught a couple. I noticed a person filming a video and it looked like a super legit video. They looked to be in a Tuffy boat and I would LOVE to see the vid. If anyone knows who it was please message me. The video shows a few fish caught and the giveaway is for comments on Youtube just so there is no confusion.

Water clarity is fine by Fox Lake standards. Report: got to Blackhawk @ 7:11 and we were the first rig there, what a shocker. Why aren't people fishing this lake? The gils were very hungry, we were perch fishing with bugs and minnows and caught tons of gils on those baits, another shocker. Managed to find a spot with less gils and more perch and ended up taking 8 perch home to eat, threw back at least that many that were too small to eat. Both species also liked worms as well. We started in 12 fow and ended up in 11 fow around an island dead sticking. A beautiful morning on the lake and pretty much non-stop action, can't ask for much more.

I spent a few hours chasing muskies on Little Green and never saw a fish so I went to Fox and went 0-4 on big fish but I don't know if they were pike or musky. Finally gave up on the muskies and caught some big bass. Its hard for me to throw those giant musky baits all day but I am not giving up hope yet :)
