   I had the day off, so I made a trip over on such a beautiful day. I marked a lot of fish and I ended up putting one in the boat. I had plenty of hits, but i was using a rod with mono and the hook sets are just not good enough to stick a fish in 120 fow. Several just fell off on the way up. I should have switched over to my lake trout rig, but I was just out goofin' around. 

 The fish were suspended in 120 fow, 40 to 90 feet down. I played "keep away", just like lake trout, and they would chase it down. Good practice for lakers on Big Green this winter.

Cafe_Racer, there are no catfish in the lake. Went out with the kayaks about a week ago and caught some nice rainbows about 35-40 feet down. Make sure you take your time to reel them in since they are pretty deep. Also the pan fish are everywhere in the shallows, no big ones but some to keep the kids entertained. Could not locate bass or walleye though, I think the population is dwindling for them.

Any cats in wazee? We're camping down there this weekend, and I'm trying to get an idea of what to target. Never been there before.

Thanks in advance!

Get out there now guys.  Big gills and bass are on beds and trout are cruising around in 4-8 feet of water.  Biggest one I saw was about 14 inches.  They were being picky but everything else ate a lime green bead head bugger

Haven't been out in a while - but, sure saw a lot of garbage out on the ice the last time I was out. Pretty disappointing. We've got a great, pristine resource at Wazee. If you see other guys making a mess, remind them to clean up after themselves. I enjoy snacks and beverages while fishing as much as the next guy, but it's not hard to bring a bag with you and toss it in the trash on the way out. Anyway, good luck out there fellas.

Gobbler, State annual passes do not work at Wazee since it is a county park. Either a $3.00 daily or a $25.00 annual pass, which is good for all Jackson county parks.

if you go off the furthest boat launch, go off the right point down about 100 yards and give the ice a good stomp. you'll find it. and if you want i little less walking, there is another spot right in the bay! its a patch of clear ice about 2x2 feet walk on that and im sure you'll know what im talking about! I just dont want to hear on the news that a guy went through on wazee, when i could have prevented it. good luck and be safe guys!
