Out Monday night for the last open water fishing of the year. Kept thinking as time went on "it was gonna happen" this fall. It never did. Worst walleye fishing since the fall of 2010. Did not catch many legal fish. 20" was my biggest. Did not see many legal fish caught. Most guy's I talked to said it was an off fall for them also. Did not hook up with a muskie this fall for the first time since 2010. Caught one big pike at the end of October. That was one highlight. Caught more perch than usual. Another highlight was no mud puppies caught this fall . "Aha moment". That's my excuse. No mud puppies no big walleye or muskie.
Hope to do a little more ice fishing for panfish this winter. I do know that if you need action go to Wingra. That's the beauty when you don't keep anything. Size doesn't matter. Good luck out there this winter. Rat.
