I just realized that it was upside down. Don't know how that happened. It makes the fish look bigger! Lol!

Fished the lower section of the river last night from about 3 to dark. Started out trolling boards and cranks. Picked up a bunch of short walleyes in 7-9 fow with a few legals. After the trolling bite slowed up we anchored in a few spots and pitched 1/8th jigs with 4 inch ring worms. Caught a mixed bag with some nice crappies and a couple white bass. Also got a bunch more short walleyes and a couple more legals. Biggest eye of the night was a 29 incher! Everything was released. And this my friends is why I would rather walleye fish in the fall instead of bow hunt!

The river is not high only one gate was opened half way. Most of the rain was local and very little fell up north so we cleared quickly.

@Jesse Quale

Thank You, Sir, for the permission to tag along for the pre-fishing outing, my 7-year-old nephew Nicholas had a trip of a lifetime and was so excited I wouldn't have been able to stop him talking if he were not so tired he fell asleep within minutes of getting back in the SUV. What a blessing to have such a knowledgeable and informative friend on and off the water. The neatest part of all was catching up with the DNR Survey Crew and learning so much about the science and technology of the data gathering process. They were so eager to educate us (not Jesse, because they were looking up to him for tips and directions where to survey on his homewaters) they had shocked over 50 Flatheads when we talked to them and the biggest was well over 40 lbs (made me gape more than the little guy when I heard that piece of info...) Video:

When Jesse tells you beforehand "let's fish another day I don't like the water" better listen and not insist Wink (but when your Nephew has woken up at 4am to go Fishing, you don't just stop by to play with Jesse's Labs and look at all the Deer in the Wilderness Park - you go fishing, my friend Big Smile ) I tried streamers and nymphs hoping to pull a smallie out of the brush or some of the dandy Slab Crappies Jesse has been putting everyone on throughout the season, but that will come too... Between the Carp spawning and the Eagles soaring, Sturgeon jumping and all the great stories time flew and I am hooked to go again beautiful area, very promising waters, and my Nephew will not leave me be if we do not hit the water again.

Fished the river today for a few hours looking for fish for up coming guide trips.The river is very dirty from the dam to the lake. Lots of trash,weeds,trees floating around on the river. Water looks like chocolate milk. Water temp was 70. I pitched 1/8 oz jigs tipped with crawlers in fallen down trees. 2 bites all morning. 1 big gill,other was a small cat. visibility is less then 3 inches. Talked with the dnr who are schocking for flathead catfish. In the last 4 days they have schocked over 50 flatheads. couple in the 30 to 40 lbs range.We will post a little video lator this week Big Smile Ps dear mother nature please bring the hot sunny days back to wisconsin Wondering

I think I finally figured out how to embed my videos properly. Here is one that was giving me problems from this spring chasing walleyes.

Guys are still catching a few walleyes,white bass but for the most part THE CATS ARE SMOKIN HOT!!!! Lots of guys in the boats and from shore catching catfish. Most guys are fishing from kevins bait shop down along the park from shore. Lots of guys catching cats up by the mill and in the fast water.Water temp on the river is 74 to 75 and warmer on most days. Big Smile Big Smile

For all the guys calling and emailing. Guys are still catching a few small male white bass and spawned out females in the river from the nekoosa dam all the way down to the main lake. Crappies are on the move down river aswell they should be filtering back to there normal areas in the river and on the main lake. They are still catching a few walleyes in the river aswell. (CAT FISH) are on fire!!!! I saw 3 guys catch a limit in less than 20 mins up by the cables by the paper mill yesterday in the evening. orange tubes dipped in stink bait worked the best. Guys are catching a few flatheads,sturgeon in deep holes in the river. Blue gills should be going good soon with all this hot weather...... Be safe,good luck and catch lots of fish Kiss

Fished all day yesterday. Was having trouble getting on the fish so I stopped at Nekoosa Bait for a pep talk, advice and some minnows. Got some pointers from the owner and off I ran. He forgot to charge me for he minnows, and I was stoked a again, so I have to send him a check, with a little gratuity. Anyhow, took his advice and tried trolling. BAM 40 whitebass, 6 nice cats, 1 sheepshead, 6 short eyes - 1 was 14.75 Lost alot of fish too. All from 6:30 till 8:30 1st time Ive ever had boats movin in around me. Felt good to put it together in the last few hours after all day of grumbling..."wheres those darn fish".

Video of filleting whitebass, catfish, walleye, crappie and sheephead. You may find this helpful if you don't fillet a lot of fish.
