Another year, and with much thanks to Mark Nibbelin, another trip to Nicolet Shores up in Eagle River, Wisconsin.
This series is from days before the guide trip. The nice thing about Nicolet Shores is that there are small rowboats and canoes available to take out on to Spectacle Lake. Last year we didn’t catch a thing in Spectacle but small Bluegill. Much better this year. We couldn’t take the Bass we caught, but Chris and I were catching them from the rowboat and then releasing them. (We alternated rowing, and even did some trolling by rowing which worked pretty well!)
It rained a lot this week, but we were able to get out… this particular series ended with us rowing like hell to get back before a thunderstorm rolled in.
