Meat and Cheese

Here is a solid bass from the Menominee River in Wisconsin that ate my old reliable Meat Wagon streamer. A good portion of the Menominee forms the border between Wisconson and the UP of Michigan. It is a beautiful river, tea colored with plenty of fast water and pools begging to be fished. On this Sunday in August we floated 5 miles and didn't see another angler. The M is loaded with smallmouth and has plenty of toothy critters, i.e., muskies mixed in. These are the hardest fighting smallmouth bass I have encountered. Tight Lines Fly Shop out of DePere, WI, specializes in floating the Menominee- check them out!
