Went scouting for the Sanstorm walleye tournament today got four legal walleyes, and some bass and gills. How many fish do you guys think you will need to take 10th place next weekend.

Well it was a 17" smallmouth. She also landed 5 others. Not bad for hour and a half of fishing.

Took 6 year old out. Didn't care what we caught. Just wanted to catch something. She was awesome. She was casting and retrieving on her own, then......hooked and landed this nice smallmouth all by herself! Wish I could figure out how to post pictures.

Can anyone give me some hot spots on good cat fishing spots on the river in the point/plover area? I just moved to the Amherst area from new London and the mighty wolf river. And I'm having a hard time finding a spot that isn't full of rocks or snags. I'm looking for any land or boat spots. I've been asking around and most people use the local names for spots. Like on the wolf we call one "the big eddy" lol and its making hard for me to get into numbers of fish. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! Happy fishing

The 'True' clears are often a variation of and/or a product of environment, especially in the river here. In terms of naturals, there really are precious few around here, as the Musky population was completely decimated by pollution from Wausau south beginning in the middle 1800's until the Clean Water Act of 1972. Once the treatment plants started up for both municipalities and especially the paper industry, making the paper industry in WI the cleanest anywhere in the world, a lot of the indicator species started showing up again(smallies, muskies, catfish), mostly through stocking. Again, the fish possess a lot more markings when small, and will tend to 'clear' out as they grow in the river. It does seem though, that the naturals up around Wausau and to the north do possess that 'clear/mottled phasing and a lot of entrainment(moving through the systems downstream) is taking place so I'd expect some of those fish to be seen in the Point Flowage.

It would be nice if we could gather some eggs from some of the big fish in Dubay/Lake Wausau and raise them locally. If only our club still had the ability to raise our own fish(cannot afford to with VHS regs on bait gathering).

There are no spotted Muskies in Point flowage. Our club(Consolidated Musky Club Inc.) stocks some of the spotteds on an every other year basis in Petenwell flowage only(we did stock Castle Rock once with them 5 years ago). We are not permitted to stock the spotteds anywhere else. It is exciting to think we can possibly develop a self sustaining population, which is not the case now. Yes, they are spawning, but there is precious little natural reproduction being found on most of the area flowages, and none in many of the local bodies. With better weed growth, water quality, less level flux, we hope this improves.

I wouldn't expect any of the fish stocked locally to have origins in Ohio. I know the fish we stocked/stocked do not and can follow the lineage to a degree, and the Point club has gotten their fish from the same hatcheries we have for the most part over the past several years. The Kalepps fish that Point stocked for years are some of the most notable trophy potential bearing fish in the country. They are some of the WI strain fish that were stocked in Mill Lacs in the 80's that grew to immense proportions, and are gone now for the most part(the WI strain didn't reproduce in Mill Lacs as far as anyone can tell). 12 Apostles in Point gets almost all of their fish from Gollons as mentioned in another post. They are admittedly very spotted/barred looking when young, but seem to 'wash' out as they grow in the river. The point is, the clubs really need to be commended for resurrecting a population over the past 30 years, creating a fishable population that simply wasn't here when I was a kid growing up in the late 70's/80's. The DNR has been stocking a ton of fish as well over the past few years, which has also helped boost this still recovering population.

Good luck!

Hit my favorite little fishing hole near the Point Dam this afternoon looking for a few catfish to tussle. Threw Sonny's dip bait at em... got Lotta "short hits" with no fish. Switched to nightcrawlers and cut bait. Got four 20-24 inch channel cats in a half hour. Way too much fun! Moved down river and got another kitty cat on Sonny's dip bait. Nice little afternoon of "cattin'!" :-)

Happy Fishing!

Ralph :-)

Jason, wow, such an informative post. Thank you for the stocking explanation. You answered a lot of my questions. Don't get me wrong, these more recently stocked fish are beautiful and I do like the barred markings, I just don't want to see the true clears disappear. I've witnessed them spawning on the biron, at what success/survival rate I do not know... I've only caught a few true clears in the point flowage, but I haven't been fishing there long. I did catch my first keeper there on Sunday, a fat, heavy 46". Cpr'd of course... I was unaware that there were spotteds in the point flowage! If so, pretty cool... Still looking to find out if the ohio river strain has ever been stocked in/above point.
