On the Minnesota Bass Opener, I headed for Wisconsin with my brother Josh. We stumbled across some nice shallow spots in a couple different lakes that put out a lot of fish. Nothing too huge, but we put plenty of fish in the boat, still we couldn't get that big picture fish that we were hoping for, so we settled for these two. I really love fishing shallow water. You can see in the background that there is a nice spread of emergent vegetation that made for a nice bass playground. The fish were done spawning, with the water temperature ranging from 60 to 69 degrees, and bass were just hanging out shallow, while there was a break in all the bad weather. Always more fun to put fish in the boat with someone else to enjoy it with you.
