I've never caught a stickleback in my minnow seine on the Lower Dells in over 50 years on the river.  I used to get them with purchased minnows, but never put them on a hook.

Hey, bit of off topic question here:  

Are Sticklebacks good bait?  I put out a minnow trap and wound up with 4 or 5 dozen in a 2 hours.  Nothing but sticklebacks in the trap.

If you're coming from the milw area I have 2 open seats in the boat for Friday morning if you're willing to pay for gas. I have a few areas in mind to fish Butte morts thru rainbow park area, or WI Dells or ??

Been up there 2 of the last 3 weekends without much success. A few shorts that's all. Do you think it's worth another try this weekend or is the run over?

thx

Fished down river of the dam on shore both Saturday and Sunday. Only caught 12 shorts. Just dragging a minnow and a floating? jig on bottom seem to work. Tried some crankbaits and some plastics with no hits. Oh well it was nice to be out to enjoy the weather.

I was out below the dam tonight until dark.  I saw a 3-4 lb Northern caught as well as a few shorts.  A couple might have been legal.  All I caught was an "Eelpout".  Yah, just one of those goofy looking fish/eel things that prowl the rivers.  Kid next to me caught a Mud Puppy.  

With the lack of boats and shore fishermen below the dam on such a nice weekend day, it is clear that there is no real walleye bite going on.  At this point, I am beginning to wonder if we will have one this spring or not.

My brother-in-law and I caught 55 walleyes and saugers this morning with seven on the stringer.  Water temp is 47.  If you don't come up Monday and Tuesday, you may miss things entirely.

Also, had a bonus of two saugers on one lure.  A first for us.
