FISHING REPORT
1/28/15 9:34 PM CST
We fished the channel edges on Thunder yesterday. The crappies were spread out but we drilled a bunch of holes and just kept moving and picking them up one or two at a time. Most of the crappies were caught in 8 to 11 FOW. Size was on the small size, from 3" up to 10". Lots of small gills as well. They were up in the shallower water from 6 to 8 feet. Crappies were caught on jig/plastic. Gills on jig/plastic or spikes. We kept a few crappies for dinner last night and they fried up excellent!

Does anyone have an ice report? We are heading up to our cabin on Thunder and curious if I should bring the wheeler and sled or if ice conditions are good enough to take the truck out.

I moved away a year and half ago and want to come back and fish next week. Just wondering what the ice conditions are and how the bite on Peggy's slough? Thanks

Greetings my fellow fishermen. It's that time of year again. Time to get your ice fishing equipment out and go fishing. I just got done checking the ice on Peggy Slough. I drilled 7 holes and there was 3-3.5 inches of ice from the snowmobile trail all the way to the big bog. Walking out wasn't bad because there was about 2 inches of snow on top of the ice. I may try fishing tomorrow before the storm rolls in. Stay safe out there.

Hello, we live on Okauchee lake by Milwaukee and are heading up in September for a long weekend. Are there walleyes to be caught in boom or on the river somewhere? Thanks for any insight.

There will always be fish that do not make it through the winter. Some will also be fish that die after being released while ice fishing. I can assure you that Boom is alive and well this spring season!!

I would say that the dead panfish we've been seeing is a result of the very bad winter we had. I'd imagine that when the ice was 3ft thick that it cut off a lot of the oxygen, especially in the shallower areas of the lake & river.

Also I would say it might have something to do with all the garbage and pollutants that the lazy ice fishermen left behind. I mean what it so hard about picking up your trash from ice fishing, and most of it comes from the guys that have the stupid permanent shacks!

I noticed a few dead bluegill too last weekend when I was putting in my pier. It's not something I'm used to seeing on the lake. Any idea what might have caused it?

FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 66° - 70° F Water Temp: 51° - 55° F
Went out yesterday afternoon trying to find walleye, or any fish for that matter. Started out by the gravel reef by the mouth of Peggy Slough. Then made little jumps from there all the way down to the county w bridge with no fish. Then went down to the paper mill dam with nothing to report. Then went up to the big island on the river and still nothing but a couple dead bluegills and a possible dead pike. Then went back toward Bullhead Slough via the bog and saw some more dead bluegills. Once I got back to the landing, found some dead crappies.

MFAL:

Currently it is not legal to troll anywhere on the Boom Lake Chain, that includes the Wisconsin River. You will be able to troll next year though, with a maximum of 1 line per person.

I am going to suggest not trolling... I know it is legal on the Rainbow... I know it is legal on only the upper parts of Mohawkskin in Tomahawk, not the lower two-thirds. I cannot find anything on Boom or the WI R. in Oneida county, so I don't think I would troll anything but the Rainbow or the Willow based on the regs...

Non-report. I am looking for regulations for the river section north of boom. Or is that considered boom flowage? I checked at rainbow dam, figuring that would be logical place to find em but all that's posted are the fish regs/limits. Guess I'm wondering if it's legal to troll river? I know it's skinny but when moving back up to spots can't hurt to drag a bait during transit, unless of course it's illegal. I believe it's legal on stretches or WI river so just curious. Thanks.
