Water temp last night on south side of Monona along the weeds was 65.

Had a follow from a small (20-25") musky on a bucktail, picked up a few bass here and there (biggest was about 16"). We caught a few little pike (12") as well on bucktails.

There is lots of that crappy slimy stuff out there so if you're fishing closer to shore be ready to constantly clean off your lure.

Weeds are about perfect right now and water clarity is still really good.

Muskie have been on fire on Monona to start the season. In 3 trips have gotten a 38" and 39" casting, and last saturday had a trolling triple of 32", 45" and 36" in a little over an hour. Follows have been abundant as well.

Fish have all come in 4-7 feet over the tops of weeds.

-----------

Largemouth are up to their usual spring behavior and biting consistently. Senkos on structure and beds and swim jigs on weed flats; should be able to boat at least 20 regardless of conditions this time of year.

Strike King King-Shads have been good for roaming females as well.

Using small baits for muskies. Had one follow on a homemade #8 colorado double, brass and natural. Right on the edge of a shallow flats weedline right by quick drop. Did bring 2 largemouth, 16", into the boat and had a few light hits on a homemade inline. No action on firetiger or bright colors, everything on natural colors.

Fished Monona Bay for a little bit from shore at Brittingham today. Girlfriend and I threw chartreuse spinner baits, hers a little smaller than mine. We got 5 nice fish in about 45 minutes. All from 14 to 16 inches. Girlfriend got the bigger fish with smaller spinner bait, and logged her biggest fish yet. (Just started bass fishing this year) Im a lucky guy.

Cold and wet on the lake this evening. Managed to catch a couple of Northens (15 and 22 inch) around the Schluter Beach area from my kayak. Keep calm and fish on!

Excellent bass bite this afternoon after the rains. At least where I was. Caught an over 20-incher largemouth that was shaped like a bowling ball and a few other keepers in a couple hours of fishin’. Plenty of shorts, too. Looked like the gill fishers caught a few but the shallows were pretty quiet – again, talking about where I fished. The bass and panfish seemed to be off shore. My advice, find some weeds a couple hundred yards from the shoreline and fish there.

Fished Muskie in the triangles and caught one 27 inch and then another about the same size lost while netting. Also had a 16 inch bass. Was hoping for more action for 4 guys in 2 boats that covered alot of water.

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.
