Several of us from WCF hooked up at the Busse Lake warm water discharge for some largemouth bass action. We all caught between 1 and 2 dozen fish using large fathead minnows. Most of the bass were small. I caught one that was about 11" and really fat, that seemed to be the biggest.

Good time by all!

It was indeed a good time. We saw some bigger fish but they weren't interested in biting. I think that I caught 14 bass and probably lost atleast twice that many. :lol:

They may have been small, but like Augy said, if somebody asks you how many fish you caught, you can say I caught 14 bass! 8)

It was fun, and yes 14 bass (no matter how big) is still 14 bass... :wink:

Bigrain, it is possible to be successful fishing there anyday. Just use minnows and don't bother with a bobber. The water is shallow and pretty clear so it's mostly sight fishing. Polarized glasses help. Good luck.

satisfied a much needed fix. after the skunkfest the past couple of weeks and hardly getting out, it didn't matter how big the fish were, it was still fishing and a good time.

still amazes me how much more fun it is when a few of us from wcf get together to fish. i'm so lucky to have so many good fishing pals these days. til next time! :mrgreen:

The old rattle trap didn't work today Frank? This time of year is really tough to catch bass, especially from shore. The WWD is pretty much a sure thing. I'll probably head back out again this week on Wednesday.

I didn't even bother with the rat-l-trap today. I mostly just used the senko and just played around with the lures i got from the 5 dollar bass pro online deal i recieved this week. Thanksgiving break starts wednesday so maybe i'll see you there.
