Fished last night from 7 to midnight, casting both deep and shallow dive crank baits. Caught three nice eater size walleyes and a 30" northern. Just before I decided to hang it up I got a nice 19" smalley. I took a picture and let it go and a couple cast later I got another one that was pushing 21"s. Nice way to end the night.

Just over three weeks ago the limit was one fish and the launch parking lots were packed and trailers even parked on the street. Now the limit is five and when I pulled my boat out last night there were three trailers in the lot? Works for me, got a 16,17,20 and 2 21's great night.

Fished last Sunday morning for little less than an hour from shore off of Stephenson Island. Caught a bunch of suckers, but did end up getting one nice walleye. If you are wanting to go there for the "run", then I would say you shouldn't because you'll be disappointed. If you wanted to go and catch some fish with the possibility of catching a couple of walleye, then you should go for it.

Is that bay on the WI side of the river open right now or is it buoyed off like it was at the end of last year?

you missed it by a couple of the weeks for shorefishing, fish are back out in the bay for the trollers. Suckers took the place of the eyes.

Wondering how the river conditions look for opening weekend. Would like to get out and catch LMB, SMB, pike or walleye. Not too picky!

Hey lockjaw the little I've fished there has been from shore but another great jig is a walleye killer tipped with a fathead it has worked well for me on quite a few other rivers and lakes size depends on current generally 5/8 oz with normal flow brighter colors work great not sure how they would be on the Menominee probably depends on snags and rocks good luck Cool

Lockjaw, I've used 1/8 - 3/8 depending on depth and current. If bottom contact is difficult, go heavier, or lighter if too many snags. Good luck. Take that kid fishing again, he'll never forget it. Nothing better than seeing these young ones out there. Good luck.

I'm glad someone else saw it so I know I'm not crazy, kinda. I almost seemed like it wasn't just a case of not getting along, it was an "adult" getting mad cause a kid caught a fish before he did! What kind of looser does it take to do that? Sorry I don't normally vent like this on here but that was probably the most disgusting thing I've seen on the water. Sad thing is, he probably calls himself a sportsman. Hopefully I just interpreted the whole scenario wrong but I don't think so.

I think I met them crossing the trestle, there was a kid with me as well that got pretty frustrated until he landed his first walleye lifetime. A side note, does nybody know what some commonly used jig weights are when fishing frkm a boat, I suppose it varies from year to year or even a weekly basis. Wanted to have an idea what size jigs I should be molding.

Conditions: Night Time
late report from last weekend. Fished Saturday night on the island. Fish were biting husky jerks in various sizes an colors. No big fish, all but 1 spawned out. Anyway, I decided to take a break from the wind and move to south side of island, noticed a father and young son fishing so I decided to just sit back by the tree and watch for a while. They were shortly joined by 3 more. While the father and his buddy stood by chatting over a couple fish, the young kid hooked up, the buddy netted it for him. That kid was sooo excited I couldn't help but be excited too. About that time the 3rd guy with them through in the towel out of frustration and I thought, what a great couple guys taking their kids and a special needs person, but within a few minutes of whining the older kid called him dad and began arguing about not catching fish! I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Obviously everyone had enough of that and they packed up to leave, the 2 of them arguing all the way to their truck. How can anyone act like that? Got to hand it to the father and his buddy for keeping their composure with him. Definitely would be the last time fishing with me. Anyway, had to get that off my chest. Did anyone else see this? Good luck all. Big Smile Angry Puke
