Report from last weekend:

Saturday mid/late morning fished from shore downstream between County O & Hwy 16 bend and the County O boat launch.  Caught 2 sheephead on river rig with crawlers and a beautiful smallie on a river rig with a shiner.  Nothing on a variety of lures (cranks, spinners, jigs).

Saturday evening same section of river from boat, made a huge mistake.  Forgot my net, which normally is not an issue.  Of course, something took my crankbait and, as I pulled it alongside the boat, I saw it was the largest walleye I (would have) ever caught.  I reached down to grab him and wound up with a sliced thumb and a snapped line.  Guys wading nearby commented on how large it was.  Thanks, guys - you're not helping!  Sulking, caught a sheephead on rig/crawler and a couple of tiny smallies on a crankbait.  For good measure on the way back to the boat launch, lost a decent smallie boatside while trolling.  Ugh.  That walleye incident will haunt me.

Sunday evening same section of river from boat nearly got skunked, save for a sheephead on rig/crawler.  I figured there would be plenty of action in the shallows.  There was plenty of splashing/jumping in the middle of the river, whereas I was fishing closer to shore with jigs.

Monday late morning from Newport Park on County A from shore caught a baby sturgeon on rig/crawler, but it was slow otherwise.  Nothing on a variety of lures.  Very windy and too late in the morning.

Overall, fair at best.  Would use a different word if I got that walleye aboard.

I'll be in the Dells next week for a week.  Anything going on down river from the dam.  I fish for everything so any info would be helpful.

Waded up river from the Hwy O parking early Wed. morning. Caught several smallies on a torpedo. I also used my go to lure to catch a a mixed bag of smallie, northern and drum. It is fun to not know what will hit a lure. Saw a huge sturgeon jump. Perfect morning.
