FISHING REPORT

Another great weekend on the lake. Boated over 30 legals for the weekend and no, we did not keep them all. Out Saturday morning with three pretty darn good fishing ladies. They finished off a 3 person limit by 9:30am which may very well be the fastest 3-person limit ever in my boat. Saturday afternoon was much slower but we still caught 8 more keepers. Just had to move around more and work harder for them. Sunday mornings crew didn't care about catching keepers, they wanted a crack at some big fish. First three hours with little to no wind and not very many fish either. Last hour of the morning, we landed a 23 & 27" walleye and a bonus 20lb Flathead. All on a jig & moxi from B'Fish'N Tackle. Sunday afternoon fished with locals who I would describe as total newbies to walleye fishing. Despite the wind, trip started out good with 5 keepers in the first hour but kids started getting a little cold fishing in that wind so decided to move some place more comfortable. Maybe should have stayed where we were as we didn't get any more keepers, just shorts. One of the youngsters did manage to land a nice flathead catfish which was no doubt the highlight of the trip. Nothing like hearing a couple of young kids squealing with delight over a fish they caught. That was fun to see!

Deadsexy - you were on a roll man. Congrats on some beautiful fish! Bergy definitely knows how to put his boat and fellow fishing partners on fish.

Met a lot of nice people out on the lake this weekend and several great up and coming young fishing lads. Thats great to see!

Will post some pictures asap.

Out yesterday, confined to fishing northern shorelines near the moon valley area due to my small boat and the winds. Started off pretty good catching a few crappies and loosing a walleye but then hit a looong dry spell until afternoon when the fishing conditions improved.

All and all caught 6 crappie, 2 sauger, a walleye, a smallie, a white bass and a drum. Once again the only real consistent action I could fine were on steep drops with wood in about the 15ft range. Deep blade bait jigging resulted in the white bass and two crappies(oddly the smallest crappies I caught all day)

One of the hardest things I find about this body of water is that I can never decide how or where I want to fish. It's like I'll be fishing a certain way... let's say working shorelines.. and then I'll notice something interesting on the depth locator and pull back and try that for awhile and so on. Just always feels like I'm leaving fish on the table and I don't want to miss anything.

Fished 7:30 till noon. I think the duck hunters had better luck. About a dozen boats around the tressele . Did not see much action. Talk to couple of boats very slow. Got 1white bass. Boat control was hard with the wind. Trolled spinner rigs, slow death rigs, and shad raps. Be out next Friday. Good luck and CPR.

Was out last Saturday for the afternoon. Fished several locations containing wood. 1/4 oz orange jig and fathead was the ticket. Tried boards for a while, with not much luck. Ended up with over 20 legals and many shorts with all still swimming. On another note, it was nice to see the DNR out checking boats. Had to laugh that "some fisherman" around us "didn't know there was a slot." Warden said he issued several tickets to boats for short fish also. Hope he is out more often!

Out today from 9am to 1pm. Two crappies and 1 13 inch sauger on chartreuse jig heads with medium fat heads, in 12 to 18 feet. Lots of boats in Weigands Bay, so we decided to avoid the crowd and fished across the bay from them. We had many hits, just couldn't seem to hook them. Couldn't ask for much better weather, it was beautiful.

I would like to change the discussion . The current discussion is going no where and not help folks. I will be out early tomorrow. Try jig and minnow with Moix plastic. Purple and minnow work for me last weekend . I'm thinking maybe zip blades may start producing. Any thoughts. Also I wonder if walleye may be staging up the river system and start going deeper. May try up north. I will let everyone know how I do. I suggest CPR. For the future. I have grand kids I want to leave a good fishing experience for them.

Fished both Sat and Sun. last weekend and had a great time on the water.Jig and minnow in various locations some were better than others it seemed like the more boats that were there the more fish we caught except for a couple of early spots Big Smile.As far as all those comments we were skunked last year in the last tourney Crying.Hope everyone enjoys the great weather and fall fishing.First and last post of the year! Cool

We had a great time Tuesday with the fish shocking demonstration. Approximately 40 people showed up despite the weather. Thanks to Nate and Dan from the DNR, your time was greatly appreciated and the presentation was very informative and fun!!!

Thanks to everyone who showed up, the Lake Wisconsin Alliance appreciates your support.

Lake Wisconsin has an unbelievable way of reproducing and growing all types of fish, if it would be any other body of water it could very well be the dead sea, the lake does see a fair amount of open water fishing pressure.

So, it’s a minimum of a 3 yr turn around before a new reg becomes law. You’re dealing with a fish species that has has an average 5 yr life span (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_crappie), ( http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/fishing/species/bcrappie.html) so a regulation change will NOT deal with a SHORT-TERM phenomenon... There are NO scientific studies that show that SPORT harvest has any effect on panfish populations, other than change in size structure in some confined populations... Dave_I_WI
