I don't think the fish have started to really put fall feed bags on yet. When water temp hits high 60's I would say things will get really good. I feel like the bass fishing can basically be good anytime from 55 degree water in spring till mid 40's in fall/early winter. There are lakes I would never fish once water gets below 55, I stick to shallower lakes in late fall (Lazy, Big Muskego, and a couple Waukesha lakes that will go unnamed.
Fishing report from today, fished some of same areas as yesterday, had a close to 5 lb smallie hit on first cast, didn't get a good latch on it. 2nd cast Pike about 28 inches. Made a few more casts and nothing. 2nd spot smallies were biting decent, caught various sizes, no real big fish. Switched it up and fished chatterbait today hoping for big fish, will probably just stay with twisters and swim jigs tomorrow. Water warmed up 2 degrees to almost 75.
Couple pics to get jacked up for fall fishing, if you guys know of a good smallmouth lake or river fish the breaks with spinnerbaits or shallow cranks when water cools to 68 or so, bite can be insane on a windy day.
