Fished squaw bay this morning with a couple friends. Fishing was really  slow managed between the 8 of us we probably caught 25 bluegills and perch maybe only 5 were keepers. Also caught one 25 inch Northern and had 3 other flags. We fished from 630 to 1130.

You could access Monona from Captain Bills but there are much easier ways on than across Mendota!

Started out chasing perch with no success. Moved in to look for some gills and did alright caught lots of little guys and kept enough decent ones for a meal.

Thank you for the help. I wasn't sure if some of the launches on Google maps were private or if the city had an ordinance against launching outside of actual boat launches.

Amarathlost,

There are tons of places to launch a kayak on Monona Bay. Any beach or park will be fine, there's also a nice launch on the north triangle which is near the intersection of Proudfit and John Nolen Drive. There's even a small parking lot. Olin Park is also nearby and has a parking lot and boat ramp if you want to access the main lake. Law Park north of Monona Terrace would be an option.
