I'm turning 40 tomorrow. I figure, I'm not going to get better at anything athletically, but I still want to have some goals in life. I like fishing, but I don't get out there as much as I'd like. To motivate myself and to keep it interesting, I decided to set a goal of catching 50 different species of fish here in my home state of Wisconsin. And to add to the difficulty, I have to catch each as I'm filming it. I'm going to post each video to this thread, and I'm also going to need help as I go. Any tips on how to catch different species of fish would be greatly appreciated. Here's the first fish I caught on video, the Bigmouth Buffalo by the Hustisford Dam.
Quest to catch 50 different fish species in Wisconsin
You win some and lose some. I think you were on the winning side on that trip. You had a bite and you saw a few. That’s pretty damn good for a 1st trip!! Good luck Brother and I know you’re not too far away. I was just Muskie fishing the past weekend and didn’t see one in a lake that has plenty of them. I learned that you have to retrieve both fast and slow to see what’s working that day. My 2 cents. Lol
Any tips or places I should visit are greatly appreciated.
I know a place where you can catch some very nice tigers pretty easily
TIEf. You deserve your 15 minutes of fame! CARPIO
Awesome! I don't press the right buttons or hit the "like", but i been watchin and enjoyin since about fish #9. I went back and watched the rest. This one is fantastic - the river, scenery, love that part of the state. Did you see any eagles? Going back there soon. Campground folks friendly and accommodating? Good luck with the musky, oughta be a hoot! Keep on keepin on - U CAN DO IT
I really hope you get number 50...but on the other hand, the thought of your quest being over makes me a bit sad. It's been fun sharing this adventure and I don't want it to end!!!
Great job Tiefsa!!! One to go!!!! You’ll get a Muskie no problem. You are 1 step away from your goal. You also 3 different ways you can catch a Muskie, so you’re in there!!!!! I’m happy for ya and respect your do-diligence!!!
I thought I posted this, but apparently not... I caught species 49! It was a shovelnose sturgeon, and I caught it while fishing with a writer from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel! Here's the video link. One to go! I've got to buy a few things and then I'm going after the muskellunge!
Great goal and theme to continue working at! Reminds of 39 hours but more involved. Have you caught a largemouth yet? I know where you might find some if you have not yet!
