Launched out of Happy Hollow Sunday with MrTipDown to explore an area we heard was good but neither had ever fished. Headed south toward the power plant and down to the RR bridge. We both threw cranks and had a couple lines dead sticking down off the bottom with crawler chucks but we didn't find any eyes. I threw about a dozen different colors and sizes at um but they didn't move. Was marking a ton of fish but we just could not figure out what they wanted. Worked the shoreline on the way back up for smallies but couldn't latch on to any of them either. Was able to boat one small Northern which went back, at least we were not totally skunked for the day. High north wind, sudden temperature drop and a Saturday full of rain must have shut them down again.

You're most likely right. I don't troll much. I do know that trolling on the "nog" is productive though. I'm usually chunkin' rapala's along the river banks lookin' for smallies or a hungry cat (catfish that is). And there's mornings that the channel cat is mightier than the smallie on rapala's. Later.....

That's because in the regulations book it has trolling is permitted on the nog. That is the only water body in Rock County that is troll-able.

Trolling on the Rock River in Rock county is illegal, check your fishing regulations.

I was out on the Rock River Thursday May 19, I had a Musky on a smaller swimbait while trolling. I lost him near the boat Tounge Out , but it was still fun. I love the amount of Musky in the Rock now. I casted the shallows and got nothing the first half of the afternoon, then trolled over deeper water. I picked up a lot of fish on the fish finder, all sizes, all suspended about 2 to 3 feet down over 7 to 10 feet of water. Water temps were 60 degrees. Catfishing is still slow.

I was out today, monday, Catfishing and had no luck at all. The wind and this cold snap has really shut the fishing off. I was out about a week or so ago ( during the warmer weather) and the Catfish were hitting like crazy. Hoping for warmer weather soon. Blush

On April 17 the Rockford Hawg Hunters held a bass tourney out of Wooton Park. 12 teams went out on the Rock River river after the elusive SM Bass. at the end of the day no team brought back a legal fish to the scale for weigh-in. water temps had dropped 10 to 15 degrees by the day of the event. 3 teams received cash awards for putting in the effort to try. hopefully better fishing days are coming soon.

Sorry, not a report, just a question: I'm new to the area and living near Beloit. Looking for some help on where to start in the area. Not looking for the "family secret" honey-hole, just a general idea. I usually target walleye and crappie, some catfish/bass fishing as well.

Unfortunately I'm stuck fishing from the shore for the next few months until I get my boat down here, so some foot-accessible spots would be appreciated!

Thanks and if you don't want to share to the whole group an Instant Message would do just as well!
