Can anyone please tell me if the white bass are starting to gather up and hit the surface for minnows yet?  Was out the other night but it was too windy to tell and I didn't see any kind of activity.  


Thanks.

Out in a boat Monday night. Boat owner took me to his hot spot but it was too windy to fish it. Went to a previous hot spot and caught some fish. Twenty five gills and two crappie.  All still swimming.

Launched out of Olbrich with a bunch of BassMasters. Must of had their little week night tourney. They are a very "special" breed of fisherman. 

There was a sunken boat out at the end of the channel. I'm figuring it was the one that went down Saturday night and that's all the further they could get it in. Glad I don't have to pay for that extrication. Rat.

Out on Monona with a friend taking underwater photos of some of the stuff I've found the last couple of days. Water temp at 3' right around 76°, thermocline is around 30'. Water clarity not real bad below the thermocline, about it it depends on where you're at on the lake. Lot of people fishing the weedlines (assume for Gills), but seeing more and more schools suspended out in deeper water now. Will probably hit Mendota tomorrow.

Starting gilling by the flotilla at Hudson Park this am. After a complete lack of action, I located a school and slowly picked away at the gills and left with a nice limit of 8.5 to 9 inchers. Downtown Madison as a backdrop was beautiful today. Tight Lines

Med Bar is straight North of Olin boat launch. Very shallow, rocks and boulders covered in weeds. Between the bar and shore was dredged many years ago and has sharp drop offs to 20+ feet. It's called the "Medical Bar" because it's right in front of the old medical building (large brick building). Rick

Caught a few largemouths near the medical center bar yesterday using leeches under a slip bobber.  Biggest was 19".  Also caught a handful of bluegills and perch in the same spot using red worms and crawler pieces.  Also caught a couple of bluegills off of Turville point.

Did a dive this morning on Monona. Waited until the rain passed through. Overcast and breezy when we got out there, even a little cool. I was down for about an half hour, when I got back to the surface the wind was down to almost nothing and it was a lot warmer. Clarity down deep definitely getting worse. Water temp at 3' was 76.5°F, at 45' it's 53°F. Didn't find what I was looking for this dive, sure I will the next time! Wife and I went for a boat ride afterwards and stopped at Schluter Beach for an ice cream cone (nice pier to tie off on). Cones were small and expensive ($7.80 for two single dips) but tasted good. Nice time spent on the water (very quiet!).
