FISHING REPORT
4/24/15 7:53 PM CST
Conditions: Sunny
Went out after work Thursday for a couple hours with two really nice guys from work. Fished the Monona Bay area targeting Crappies. A little breezy and cool but we ended up with 17 with a few nice gills mixed in. Minnows and Gulp on small jigs under a bobber. 6-8ft of water. Gulp outperformed the minnows. Drifting until we caught fish then anchored. Threw quite a few nice gills back. Look out when the warm weather hits! Nice night on the water. Big shout out to Troll Troll Troll Smile

Good luck all!

Enjoy your time there. Bring a bat to keep your casting spot cleared if you do catch a fish. lol Conceal and carry recommended.

The so called triangle is a geographic phenomenon...draw a line from the Park street Mcdonalds to the East Wash Mcdonalds and a line from West towne mall to East towne mall. Where the two lines intersect you will find the holy grail of fisheries.

I'm trying to fish near the triangle this weekend, but am not totally sure of its exact location. Could someone pm me or let me know? Also is it reachable by shore?

Thanks!

Fabalust,

I believe you are talking about bobbers made by Thill. Farm and Fleet carries them as well as Dorn and Gander

I haven't seen any carp in the river yet. I've seen a few boats going by looking for them but no action. I'm starting to see more minnows and a fair amount of crawdads along the edges but not many panfish hanging around just yet.

Maybe someone with more knowledge than me can speak better to this - but I don't think they're letting much water through the locks yet because the river is very slack with a fair amount of floating algae hanging around. The level is up about 6" after the recent rains but it still looks low. There's not much current that I've noticed, compared to what I normally see.

Not sure how close to the Olbrich shore the carp are at right now. When I get that close I'm shutting down equipment and navigating the boat. Did see a bunch at the locks this morning (part of the river is closed to fishing until the opener). May be some in the Tenney Lagoons or in the river also. Water levels are up a little but clarity is bad...

went out today 6pm - 9pm. caught some 7" gills and one 7" crappie. saw other fish caught, but i was too far away to see if they were of any size. it gets crowded quick, so get there early. i did find something by bernie's beach that i'm sure someone wants back. message me with a description of what you lost and we can make arrangements for it's return. thanks.

Where on Olbrich are the carp. Can you hit them from the pier near the landing?
