Bass fishing and shooting photos in my own slice of heaven, by John Fabina

I took my camera and fishing rods and headed to the Fox river, again.

I had some good action today. A couple of small pike where the Mukwonago River joins the Fox River.

It is a challenge to land Largemouth bass when using a frog. These fish know how to use the river current, weeds, and submerged branches to escape your hooks.
I lost so many nice fish today but it is still such an exciting way to fish.

Had the whole place to myself today. Peacefulness so close to an urban area. My own slice of heaven. Having a Wavewalk makes it so easy to enjoy. Less then five minutes of load time and you can hit the road and find your relaxing journey.
