With surface water temperatures approaching the low 80 degree mark the larger gamefish have seemed to move their deeper haunts near schools of suspended baitfish and the kids have targeted Northern Pike and Largemouth Bass by using both live bait rigs as well as finesse dropshot rigs respectively to pursue these species.
While air temperatures hovered around the low to mid-80’s, the fishing action remained hot as well as Colton, Travis, Solomon, Madison, Ryan, Joe, and Aditya all boated some great fish and shared a bunch of laughs while enjoying the great outdoors on their home body of water!
Groups of up to 3 anglers are embarking on two 3-hour trips to learn the basics on how to enjoy fishing on Pewaukee Lake.
Tuesday June 20th saw 3 groups go out and become proficient at identifying at least 3 different freshwater fish species, utilizing a spinning rod/reel combo, applying a variety of
artificial and live bait presentations.
The kids are also interpreting down and side imaging sonar as well as GPS and lake counter mapping.
In addition, each participant will receive their very own Shakespeare rod/reel combo with a line, a tack pack sampler and a Hooked Up 101 Fishing Academy t-shirt following their last session.
The following video highlights the 3 groups who took part in the fishing action on Day 1 of these trips! Enjoy!
HookedUp101 ice anglers, Mason, Spencer, Shaan, and Bonde enjoyed some panfishing while waiting for tip-ups on Big Cedar Lake in West Bend, Wisconsin.
The boys have been enjoying their friendship since the age of 3! Now they have another winter adventure to add to their list as they executed the basics of ice fishing to perfection while the Green Bay Packers were beating the Dallas Cowboys (26-21!)
Here’s a video recap of their Sunday afternoon spent catching bluegills, crappie, and northern pike!
As a team they iced 1- 23″ Northern Pike on a jig pole and over 20 panfish!
