Was out Sunday 10am-12 , trolled the shoreline between 4 - 10 FOW didn't catch anything there, went out and trolled around the humps picked up a couple huge stripers . then drifted over same spots jigged with minnows and picked up a couple really small walleye, three keepers and one 21" then it got a little to windy for comfort and we went in. Threw everything back as I didn't feel like cleaning fish. all in all was a great couple of hours glad to be on the lake again.

Spent much of Saturday on the lake. We did not find the water to be too high for fishing. Hooked into 1 short walleye, 1 short sauger, many stripers, a huge crappie and a couple of sheep head. Fished with jigs and minnows most of the time. Had a monster fish of some sort on... bent pole in half and took the line under the boat. A few huge yanks and off it came. We had hits all day. Water was incredibly calm. All action in 10-15 feet of water. On a side note, we learned our lesson about staying close to the buoys. We tried to cut a corner thinking we'd be fine and beached ourselves between the islands and the grade about 50 yards shy of the buoys coming back from the north side of the lake to the public landing.. Still learning this lake. I guess "stay close to the buoys" really applies to this area.

Oxman where are the strippers!? I have never found any that would fit in my hand, but I am still curious. How much money did you have to shell out to get them? Tounge Out

A friend of mine was fishing at the Dekorra Boat launch by the rock wall on Saturday with his Family when some Low life stole all his tackle,rods and wallet. He had left them on the little cliff that he often fishes from when he had caught a fish and went down to the landing a couple hundred feet away to show his wife and kids. When he went back his tackle box and both rods were gone and no they didnt fall into the water. He had his wallet in the tackle box along with a lot of lures his grandpa had given him and are irreplaceable!! Please if anyone knows anything about this please let me know or send me a message. Who ever did this could cleary see that they were down by the boat launch and it would be obvious that his stuff was not left behind. People like this make me sick to my stomach and with that being said i would like to see him get his stuff back please. Thank you.

Go to Burhop's Resort next to Fitz's. Russ has good minnows, leaches and crawlers- also a lot of tackle if you need anything. I have been finding crappie in 10 ft of water on a steep drop right next to shore with bushes. Slip bobbers with minnow or chunk of crawler. Good luck

Haven't been to Lake Wisconsin in a few years. Hopefully will make it up there this weekend. We usually put in at the ramp by the Okee bridge. Wondering if there are still any bait shops near there. Also wondering if anyone has had any success with crappies lately. Thanks for any help.

Nessy - I would use a tipped jig if there is a good wind to drift with. If not, try trolling with perch or yellow lures. They always seem to do the trick if the fish are out there. If you are looking for somewhere to start try around the mouth of the river. Usually you can pick some up there.

I like to use glow in the dark jigs come sunset on a nice ledge with large minnows.

Good luck!

I thought I would share my experience from last weekend as the white bass were in a frenzy. We came up Friday night and fished through Sunday night. Caught well over 150 and brought a large number home. We picked up about 10 walleye in between the white bass also, but only 3 in the slot.

I was casting first with large minnows, but then we ran out and used a small silver minnow lure, that worked well until something big broke my line with it. Then I started vertical jigging and picked up more white bass just so. There must have been thousands around the boat.

Was a great weekend of fishing and I wish I could make it up there again before the month is up.

Good luck all!

Kory

Been an up and down Summer for Bass I can go two days with nothing to speak about and tough fishing for them. Next day a bonanza like last night . Fish where going with Stripers and hearding minnows in shallows. Got 3 nice Large mouths and 4 Smallies going a little under 4 to 3 lbs like these. I fished surface baits all night and it was a ball. Got a number of good fish also on pumpkin Taper 6 in. Went out this AM early started good and then went south water in most areas was all algaed up. Got small to med W/B and a couple nice B/G.

Best to All.

Heading out on Saturday for walleye...I don't need spots or anything I can figure all that out as every fisherman should be able to do. I am just wondering is a tipped jig an effective method on this lake or am I better off trolling or casting. Just moved to the area and any info would be greatly appreciated. Willing to trade info with other lakes in the area as well.
