Fished with Joe Jochman on Sunday, you may have seen my son's post (So wis). Joe is an awesome guide. I've never seen anybody work harder to put us on fish. I'm so thankful to have found him. We caught a bunch of fish today but even if the fishing sucked it would have been worth every penny for the knowledge he shared. Thank you Joe, The mighty Petenwell is becoming more understandable thanks to you

  1. I fished with Nick and Ed from Aurora, IL this morning. The main lake was still rocking and rolling from all the wind Saturday and it wasn't looking much better for today so we opted to launch at Chester's and fish the river to get out of the wind as much as possible. We trolled the river from Chester's to near Skeeba Slough with Shad Raps and Flickers Shads and pulled flies for a while but that wasn't producing much at all. We managed to boat 5 "keepers", 1 19", 1 18", 2 17", and 1 15 1/2", 19 "shorties", 1 in the slot, 3 white bass, 1 musky at 38 inches, 2 pike, and 1 sheep head.

    Keep a tight line!!!

the later it gets into May and the water temps dont get to optimum spawning temps the white bass will spawn down river in some of the warmer pockets they can find with alot spawning in the lake.

I was out wading around the islands below the damn the last two days. Caught a dozen or so WB each day( all males all in deeper water) plus a few nice Smallies, Catfish, very small Walleyes and one small fluke Sturgeon. Everything on silver and red spinners and fire tiger Rapalas.  This morning, nothing

Nice try.

The White Bass are definitely not done. They really haven't started a true "run" yet, according to what I have read and the data I've kept on this river over the last 15 years. They'll be in full swing by this time next week with the stable weather and warmer temps coming.

They're just starting on the Mississippi too...

No way they're done...

Anyone have a report on whites over the last couple days?  I'm curious if the rain has helped with numbers.

Just fished from 7:30 AM to 10:15 AM on Monday.  Got one small walleye, channel cat, and 12 white bass.  The bass were all males and only about 11-12"- expect it to get alot better by the end of the week.  Highlight was seeing an eagle dive bomb (and successfully catch) a white bass.

A bit breezy again today so I decided to pull some cranks in the river. Started out north of Chester's and had 6 "shorties", and 1 "keeper". Then I made the run up to Nekoosa and pulled #7 Shad Raps, & #7 Flicker Shads 25 feet behind the boards in a zig/zag pattern across the current. Finished with 5 more "shorties, 1 more "keeper", 2 white bass, 4 sheep head and 1 big cat.  Found a little critter poking his head out from under the dock at Chester"s, see photo.


Keep a tight line!!!
