Hereâ€™s a late one I forgot to post. Got an invite to fish 3 oaks with one of the local young guns Erik Brztowski. Woo, Phil and Urb are familiar with his big catfish and sturgeon posts on Facebook but he also loves bass fishing and giant carp. His PBâ€™s in just about all species can make grown men cry. Heâ€™s a good stick with whatever species he puts his mind to. Heâ€™s also a cocky little shit but in a humorous way to me. Next year heâ€™ll be old enough to get his Wisconsin guiding license and will start guiding for flat heads and Sturgeon. Also look for his Sun-Times Fox River catfish reports included in the Wednesday fishing report article (those weeks heâ€™s able to fish)
So we got to Oaks on a rainy Sunday morning and it just screamed â€˜good fishingâ€™ but for some idiotic reason they werenâ€™t renting boats. Yeah it was raining, the water was high and it was semi-windy but no way unfishable. We were rigged for boat fishing not shore fishing and i certainly didnâ€™t have my waders with but we had to make the best of it. We really didnâ€™t catch that much but it sure was memorable wading in sweat pants or rain pants, in pouring rain. Air temps 58/59. I found a mini pattern, fishing a Chug Bug in flooded brush and grass or if I played the wind and could get the Bug close to one of the islands. Which is how I caught our lone Smallie. Erikâ€™s friend caught a rare Tiger that had some weird markings. Woo named it the Cheetah Musky. Thatâ€™s it, no big fish. Not many fish to speak of but the conditions made it a fun memorable day
