FISHING REPORT
9/1/15 3:08 PM CST
Conditions: Sunny
My wife and I fished from 9:30 AM To 12:30 PM today. Tried a number of different areas and methods for pan fish. All we had to show for our effort was an undersized, but energetic small mouth bass and a very large perch that fell off at the boat. A number of other bites, but very slow. Still A great day to test the new towing vehicle and do some sight seeing with my sweet heart. By the way she caught both fish Smile

Forgot I had taken a side scan snapshot of one of the weed beds with Bluegills hanging on it. I've attached it here now though. The white arrows points to the fish, which can be difficult to distinguish if you're not familiar with side scan images. The blue arrows point to the thick clump of weeds that are common. This one is in 21 FOW. Rick

Duke - shoot me a PM if you have questions about your setup. I've got the same setup but with the Terrova (and a 997 that I use mostly for mapping and AutoChart, LakeMaster & Contour Elite). Rick

No, the gills are still out there. I've been on Monona a few times this week with the side scan and am seeing them over all depths suspended in the 15 to 20 FOW range. Also seeing large schools hanging over large weed beds in deeper water and over structure. Dropped the camera down into a large school over a weed bed and hit a pike hiding in the weeds two days ago. Just got home from there and taped two large schools hanging over weed beds. So this info is current!

To echo what rk_diver said, go the the Lake Monona page (http://www.lake-link.com/Wisconsin-Lake-Finder/lake.cfm/1109/740/Monona-Lake-Dane-County-Wisconsin/), click the "Topographic Lake Map" button and you'll see that there are a lot of areas from 50 to 70 feet deep.

Chief, check that your internet map isn't showing meters instead of feet. Monona has some 70' deep areas. Rick

First time ever on lake Monona. Kept 6 gills released 6 small perch. Great afternoon to fish, but wasn't very confident with my depth finder, had a hard time reading depth with the weeds and also I was getting readings of 60' deep the map I was using (got off the internet) showed the deepest was 25' deep. Can anyone tell me which one is right or if both are wrong. Any suggestions on a good easy to use depth finder to buy? Going to try it again next week.

FISHING REPORT
8/24/15 10:20 AM CST
Conditions: Partly Sunny
Late report, but went out on the Kayak last Thursday. Due to the wind we decided to fish the river channel between Squaw Bay and down toward Mud Lake for a little wind-break.

Caught 8 smallish Largemouth in about 2-3 hours. Most bites were on a Swim Jig with a Chartreuse/White twin-tail trailer, pitched up to shore and between/under docks and slowly retrieved. Caught a few more on a weightless fluke as well (watermelon/black). Had one small Northern on but it shook off before I got it in the boat.

Not much size, but a fun day out on the water.

Water temp this morning was 72°F at 3' and 57°F at 39'. Water temp down to the thermocline has been around 76°F but I only made note of it was at in 3 & 39 FOW today. Clarity has improved a bit. If you put in at Olbrich be prepared to pull a lot of weeds off your trailer. Rick
