Fished yesterday and the day before mid-afternoon from shore along Monona Bay. Monday was pretty cloudy with intermittent rain showers, but luckily I stayed dry the whole time. Caught one 13 in. or so LMB on a white buzzbait, chartreuse trailer. Caught a nice 17 inch LMB and another 13 or 14 inch LMB on a chartreuse spnnerbait, with a chartreuse trailer. Tuesday was a bit different. It was pretty sunny and I went a little earlier than usual, probably from 2 until 330 pm. Caught one 13 or 14 in. LMB on the same spinnerbait as the day before. After that, nothing. I even worked a lot of the shoreline by the piers along Brittingham. There was a lot of action on the surface, but mostly small panfish eating bugs. Either way, all fish released safely.

Fished Monona Bay from shore last night from about 7-9. Caught one decent LMB on a chartreuse spinnerbait. Missed one on buzzbait. Slower day but couldve been worse.

Olbrich boat launch will be closed this Sunday (24th) due to construction on Atwood Ave (which will also be closed, as is part of Fair Oaks). On Monona this morning (surface temp @ 74°F), as many have reported many schools of panfish seen at various depths. Surprisingly saw more sheephead then carp with the camera today. Rick

Tried for gills this morning. Fished some weed edges, the mid depths (16-22 fow) and drifted the deep part of the lake for suspended fish, which worked the best. Still, they ran small today for me, with a bunch of them in the 6-8 inch range. I got one 9-plus incher out there in the middle and ended up keeping 5. Wished I had let them go but they were already on ice. Used waxies and little Gulp minnows. Before I left around noon I tossed a small crankbait for about 45 minutes and in one particular spot caught a largemouth, lost a keeper size smallie, missed a little pike and had a large muskie take a couple slashes at the lure.

Thinking of going out tomorrow afternoon for muskies but will not go out if water temperatures are too high. No point in endangering those beauties. Please advise.

I was the only one by "The Rock" from 10-12 yesterday...I'm guessing b1ak was referring to the area marked with buoys further east. Using the same topo map, look for the two circles with X in the middle, over by Tonyawatha boat launch and just before Squaw Bay.

There were 3-4 boats out straight off of Olin around 10 when I launched, but they weren't far enough west to be at The Rock.

Password, I'm just guessing (never been on this lake), but if you click on topo map tab at the top of the page and move your cursor to zoom in, you'll see "the rock" and 10' for the depth at the west end of the lake.
