i love fishing in the wisconsin river. i really do love it. the fishing is consistently good on it around point. this afternoon i went fishing with bart, an old friend from missouri, on the wisconsin and witnessed him make one of the strangest catches i have ever seen.
we were fishing in an eddy along some pretty swift current when he hooked onto something and said he wasn’t sure if it was a fish or a stick. he thought it was just a stick but it just didn’t quite feel like a stick normally does. when he pulled up his lure he discovered that he had just caught a working gander mountain guide series im7 graphite spinning rod and reel combo (worth about $60). the above photo is the rod he caught. first fishing trip i’ve ever been a part of that paid for itself in something other than meat.
btw, he caught fish too.
