CRAZY Early Spring Smallmouth River Fishing Adventure!

In this crazy early spring smallmouth fishing adventure, I take on the high and fast water of the Milwaukee River with my kayak. I didn't expect to catch so many smallmouth in these conditions, but the topwater bite was on fire! Using my trusty Whopper Plopper, I managed to hook ten smallmouth in no time.

Kayak fishing in high and fast water can be tricky, and I had some tough moments, but I managed to navigate through still catching ten smallmouth. The water was moving so fast that it became difficult to use finesse fishing techniques like the Ned rig, so the topwater bite became the go-to tactic.

In this video, I share some valuable tips on early spring bass fishing, including the baits that work for me in April and May. If you're looking to catch smallmouth bass in early spring, this video is a must-watch!

And if you're in the Milwaukee area, you'll definitely want to check out the Milwaukee River for some prime smallmouth fishing action. Trust me, it's a game-changer.
