I went out in the rain and fished a short section of the fever river this afternoon, and caught a couple of tiny smallies. They were both very fat, and healthy looking. One was about 6", the other was about 10".  I just walked the bank because a frigging mouse destroyed my waders, so I guess a trip to Cabela's is in my future.

One small largemouth in a  local pond on a x rap. Love jerkbaits in the spring!

Went out yesterday and tried one of the listed trout streams here in Lafayette County, and ended up catching 8 creek chubs between 6 and 9 inches.

Plenty of water over there, biggest water over here is the Mississippi. I was amazed that those chubs were hitting a 1/4oz Panther Martin. They were whacking it hard.

Pretty much everything but steelhead and salmon, or trout. I don't have a boat, so no structure fishing for me.
I am entertained with the smaller streams around here, smallies, saugers, and hopefully trout.

LOL didn't catch anything but did see some fish in the creek while mowing the lawn today. Looked to be 3-6", never seen anything that big here before. Im half tempted to get a license and see if I can catch one.

What puzzles me is how do they get in the creek?
South of me the creek goes under the railroad and the culvert has a several feet drop, so they aren't coming from that direction which is the only lake or river its connected to.

I got my fishing license this week.  Does that count?

Didn't catch anything but got the new to me 2008 Triton bass boat on the water. Checked the new Garmins and Minnkota out. The ole E-tec ran great.

Snowing this morning so the wait continues.

So trout season opens this weekend, along with most other species I can catch down here. Is trout opening day a shit show where folks line up elbow to elbow next to where the stock trucks empty out?
I am going to have to hit up Grant Co and north for trout it appears. I have caught fish in the streams I have tried down here, but no trout.

Caught my first two WI trout today. Lol, the first one was 5", and the second one maybe 6.5". I missed 3, one was probably 12 or so. They were both brook trout, and I am guessing native and not stocked. I watched several feed in a rapid, they were breaking water feeding. They wouldn't hit the spinners, though. I will hit that place again.

was out last week in April, one little smallmouth about 12" and one Rainbow/steelhead about 28"

Slipped on a large rock climbing out of the river and smacked my knee, its still sore.
