A trip to Pool 4

I headed north this past weekend with friends, Dave Jordan, Rick Fisher, Brian Bowles, and Ken Lunsford.  Our goal was to catch as many bass as we could in the two days we had to fish.

Saturday was a beautiful day, light wind, sunny and the temps hung around 60 degrees most of the day, after sub freezing weather in the morning.  We caught a lot of bass that day, capped off by Brian's big smallie.  It weighed in at 3# and 10oz, a true beauty!  We caught bass, mostly smallmouth this day, on tubes, jerkbaits, crankbaits, and finesse tactics.  At one point that day, all three of us in the boat had out spinning gear with finesse tactics around a harbor that was receiving high pressure form anglers.  We caught about 10 largemouth doing this in a short amount of time too, it was great.

Sunday was almost a day to forget, the wind blew terribly and forced us to areas of the river that were not productive.  We manage to squeeze out a few bass Sunday, including a nice largemouth on a spinnerbait.  A spinnerbait was  the key on Sunday, as the wind told me to start throwing it.  We also discovered a few new fishing areas on pool 4, that might come in handy on a return trip.  It is always fun to explore new water and catch a few fish.

All in all, a very nice trip with some good buddies, that included some great breakfast items and some awesome pizza in Pepin, Wisconsin.
