We always did good along the rocks at the dams, or in the back waters just down from dams!

Where did you have the most luck for panfish?

Panfish trip with Mike, Conner, and uncle Pat.  They had a very good day, almost non-stop action.  They kept anough big bluegills for a few meals and released probably 20 eight inchers and a ton of small ones.  Conner is pictured with a 10 incher and a very nice smallmouth.  After the early morning thunderstorm, it turned out to be a beautiful day!

Thanks for reading my reports, and have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

Are they all channels Ted, or are you getting some flatheads?

After 1.2 " of rain this morning, high humidity and cotton coming off the cottonwood trees, figured the cats would be bitin'. THEY ARE!

got out this morning ahead of the rain on a glassy calm River with essentially no boat traffic on a fun fishin' mission. Few things compare with big white bass on light tackle if you're in need of a grin. Found the mother lode the second place i stopped.  Once the ideal angle was figured out they were hitting that mini-Echotail lemonhead about every 3rd cast, putting a substantial bend in my Croix 6 1/2' ultralight. Stopped at 25. Fished about 2.5 hrs. Still grinnin'

Got out at first light down around Lansing, casting cranks on the rocks.  picked up a couple of SMB, WB and three almost-legal eyes in about 90 mins. fishing.  Tried that Berkley Digger 8.5 crank in brown/yellow. Maybe my new fave.

Runnin'and gunnin' this morning looking for active SMB with the Oxbow Trap again the most productive weapon. Targeted sandbar breaks and narrows. Baitfish a major key to SMB location. Where ever a cloud of minnows left the water when the lure entered there were several willing SMB nearby. Nothing big today, just fun. Barely skinnied through the cut by Goose Lake on my way to the main river.I'm done taking this significant short cut until the River comes up a little. Right now, extremely clear. This should change as rain upriver brings us color here by about thursday.

Fishing report for the weekend past. Saturday fished with Jack & Beth, parents of the young fellas Ted had out. They like walleyes so we targeted them. Caught fish casting cranks, trolling, and drifting crawlers. Boated 17 walleyes, problem was, only 2 legals in the mix. Great day on the river with a great family.

Sunday had a walleye/perch trip with Jeff & Jeff. Started out casting cranks, had one legal eye doing that. Switched over to perch fishing. On our second spot we hit the mother lode. Perch, walleyes, & bass, all in shallow water in the weeds. These guys are great hooks, pitching 1/16oz jigs w/half crawler they caught 16 perch,  some nice bass, and 4 more legal walleyes along with a bunch of shorts. Highlight of the day was Jeff's 27" beauty, which was quickly released after a photos. Big walleyes up in the weeds in 2FOW, this river never ceases to amaze.

See ya on the river

Fishing has been pretty good the last couple of days.  Friday I fished with Scott and Mike again.  About the same bite as the day before, with the guys catching a mixed bag of walleye, sauger, smallmouth and white bass.  Yesterday I fished with Mike and his friends Bill and Gary. We targeted bluegills for the first part of the trip.  They are spawning for sure.  The big females they caught had eggs running out of them.  Spent the last hour of our half day trip trolling crankbaits, with the guys boating a couple of nice white bass and a northern.  

Great weather the last few days!  Lots of people on the river yesterday.  Thanks for reading my reports, and hope you have a good week!

Worked with Capn. Dick yesterday. He took the parents and I took their adult kids Casey & Miles.  Folks were after eyes, Casey & Miles just wanted to rip lips. Casey caught 6 different species in the first 15 minutes! Miles had considerable skills, but a lot of his fish came unbuttoned before he could bring them to the net.  Casey is a former Wis. champion caster, earning this honor at age 10.  He is also the older brother...so when the fraternal chop-busting started I just stood back and watched the show. Bite was steady for the first several hours, slowed at mid-day then picked up again later in the afternoon, just as you would expect under a deep blue sky in the middle of a full moon period. The brothers hooked up with about 40 fish in the full-day trip. 7 total species--and not one was a sauger or walleye. Caught several nice bass. The biggest fish was a whopping big SMB hooked by Miles which shook free in a magnificent leap, throwing the Trap right back at the boat. This prompted another round of fraternal chop-busting. Tried keeping the peace by explaining there are 'offensive' and 'defensive' anglers--and that Miles was somewhere between Reggie White and Jared Allen. Game on.Guys said they had a great trip. Me too, but after working my butt off all day i felt like an old muffler;exhausted.

Fished with Mike and Scott yesterday afternoon.   Had a good day.  The guys caught walleye ( 3 legals), several nice white bass and a couple bonus fish.  (Flathead and channel cats)   Caught fish both trolling and casting crankbaits.  Beautiful day!  The water temp is back in the low 60's and bass are on beds.  Bluegills should be any day now. Thanks for reading my reports and have a good weekend!

Half day trip with Kirk & Joe. WB were EVERYWHERE! Caught shorts, sauger and pike, too. One 18" snot rocket shared a crankbait with Kirk, then started to dance. Quite a bloody, animated passe doobla.  Noticably absent from our catch were LMB & SMB. Methinks their on the beds.
