Day 2 on the Chippewa and Flambeau Rivers with Greg and Milo. Today was different because we had some extra competition due to a local bass tournament. Usually at this time of the year you will see very few boats on the river even on the weekends. But there was a bass tournament that consisted of thirty boats that blasted off from a popular resort down on Lake Holcombe and many of them were fishing the same water that I intended to fish with Greg and Milo. We were not deterred by the additional boats that were fishing the same water that I planned to fish. Even though both rivers were still running high the smallies had pulled back off the bank for some reason. It could be due to the added pressure from the tournament fishermen, but who really knows. They were now catching the majority of the fish twenty to forty feet from the bank. Greg had mentioned that he would like to catch another one of those “pineapples” like he did yesterday. He did just that by landing another one of those 19 in. 3 lb. 13 oz. footballs that the Flambeau is famous for producing at this time of year. By the end of the trip Greg and Milo had another productive day on the water landing 28 smallies in six hours of fishing. Tomorrow they will spend the day with Joe Flater on the upper Flambeau in pursuit of those monster muskies that lurk in that particular stretch of water.
