Cut the pectoral fins off with a pair of side cutters so they lay flat. Makes it a lot easier.

Keep a tight line!!!

Fished Tues and Wed from 3-6pm both days. Gates wide open. First time ever was only boat on water!  Went down from rollers by dam and had to move a bit to find fish. All the cats you care to clean are there. Anybody know a humane way to kill them before cleaning?  Caught 30 shorts Mon.  On Tues my son and I stopped at 70 shorts. A blast catching fish but no keepers.  Caught 4 WB and all shorts. Shore fishermen are picking up WB too. Should be good  for WB when rain stops in a week. 

Sea Monkey - carp are jumping every 20 seconds by dam.

Went out on Monday morning and fished until noon. Started at the train trussel trolling cranks. Current was moving one way and wind was blowing another. Made for a tough time with boat control. Later moved up river and battled the current. Fished from the 21 bridge back down the river jigging and throwing rat l traps. Ended the morning with only 2 short walleyes and 1 white bass. The current is making fishing tough and is only going to get worse with upcoming rain and snow in the northern part of the state. Good luck to all and be safe in the current.

Plenty of Big Carp in shallows by Buckhorn.  Water has been muddy.

Guessing with the high flows, tough to see, but anyone seeing carp in the shallows or surfacing along the east shoreline?

Thanks!

Fished from mid morning to about 5 on Sunday from shore a little ways down from the dam. Son and I pulled in 64 shorts and one keeper. We need to think like bigger fish I guess. Had fun and enjoyed the outdoors.

 I will be hunting near Mauston this weekend. Would like to fish for some walleys from the bank on the Wisconsin river. I've never fished this area, any suggestions.  THANK YOU
