FISHING REPORT
10/22/14 2:31 PM CST
Foggy as all heck this morning. Didn't lift till 8:30 or so. Man, that was nuts & dangerous-couldn't see 20 ft. in front of the boat. Had to move @ 2mph. Gotta love GPS in those conditions. Water was gin clear. Anyway, Tried Heidel Bar, Dartford Bay, Outside Dartford Bay cribs, Shale bar drifting with Lindy/minnows. Waxworms, redworms, fatheads, Lg. chubs, casted spinners and cranks, etc. Not one bite. Not even a 6" perch. Saw a few other boats fishing-didn't see a fish caught. Worried

I would agree with Cold Front. Puckaway is a good bet. I would try fishing the river, there are pike holding out in the river.

Hittin' BG tomorrow (Wed.) Targeting: Anything that's biting! Bringing along assortment of live bait including lg. chubs. Plan on starting in Dartford Bay, working out to cribs and then the Shale Bar and Heidel Bar. Any BG tips this time of year appreciated (PM) otherwise I'll report afterwards.

Big Pike are tough to come by in Central Wisconsin. The hot summer of 2012 resulted in a die off of big pike on the shallower lakes. Poygan got drilled especially hard. You may consider Puckaway. It has been a good pike lake for years and there are a few decent sized ones to be had. Fox Lake could be a sleeper too. Mrt.

Ok thanks. He said they caught a a lot in the 28-35in range on perch. If there are a quantity of those 8-12lbers, there definitely have to be some trophies in there. So there are not true weedbeds full of catalpa weeds in this lake? The floating weeds keep getting mentioned, typically the green slimy weeds that the power boats chew up. Looking for a good pike lake in central/ south wisconsin to meet my dad at for a weekend. Have not found one yet.......

BBB- I saw the show, and those were not big northern by any means...maybe 30" at best. I wouldn't get too excited about that.

My dad said he saw a fishing show on tv where they were catching big pike on Green Lake? Does anyone know if that is true, and any information on fall pike fishing would be appreciated. Some of the posts said this is a weedy lake, is it still that weedy this late in the fall? Just wondering if the pike fishing is in the weeds or the deeper structure that was mentioned. Any info would be great.

Got a limit of gills and perch today, lots of small perch to get thru to get some decent fish. Fished in 8 - 10 feet of water with plastics. Didn't seem to matter where you stopped the fish were there.

Fished this lake for the first time Saturday and Sunday hoping for a good smallmouth bite. Only caught a few and had a few others follow to the boat. Was tough fishing for those of us not using live bait. Threw everything including the kitchen sink at em. The smallies definitely won this time.

FYI, Water temp was around 57 degrees.

Cooler weather has me thinking about ice fishing. I've only been on Big Green a couple times, but I've seen some guys pulling in Lake Trout on jig rods and it's something I want to get into.

One really nice guy showed me exactly what he was using and even gave me a jig and plastic like he was using. But so far I haven't had any luck.

One question I have for you guys is what electronics are you using? My ICE35 won't pick up that lure and plastic combination. I'm thinking about an upgrade but want to make sure I can pick up everything all the way to the bottom.
