A half-hour or so into our watery jaunt, and we had already caught and released a dozen bass, the biggest of which pushed 3 pounds.
Another half-hour produced another dozen fish, and soon a dozen more.
As the evening coalesced, finally, in darkness and rain, a deep chill infusing both, we had caught and released close to 50 bass.
All without launching a boat or starting an outboard.
Or worrying about competition from other anglers.
Lakes that offer similar wading opportunities abound in and around the Twin Cities, as well as elsewhere in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
A little scouting might be necessary, and the quarry on some waters often includes not only bass, but crappies and sunnies.
“Wade fishing is about as fun as fishing gets,” Bill said.
I agreed, and launched a final cast, watching in the distant twilight as my bait plopped onto the lake surface, tempting, I hoped, a bass lying below.
