Had a great day fishing today. Trolled number 3 and 4 salmos with chrome colors being the best. We caught 23 walleyes in two and half hours biggest being just shy of 28 inches trolling. Had to stop because construction crews were floating pipes. Majority were spawned out females smallest being 20 inches. The big walleye was my wife's personal best in De Pere. Ended up also with a huge whitebass and a musky. Musky was on the same time with the big eye. Then we switched to jigging and caught 31 more walleye. All were males caught jigging and some were milking yet. 3/8 oz jig with stinger hooks in slack 10 to 14 fow was the key. Still lots of walleye to be caught and the run is not over. You just need to change your tactics to get them to bite. Will be out all day tomorrow.

4 gates are open. Fishing report. Got skunked the last couple nights. Only getting a couple each time. Seeing a lot of carp and with the action getting lower I think the walleye run on the Fox is pretty much done.

Musky stocking did stop a few years ago BUT it is back in action not big numbers but sticking is going on all threw the bay. With only natural reproduction proof in menominee and sturgeon bay. But few. Its all on the papers.

WOOOOW !!! the spawn is IN PROGRESS !! well what's left of it anyway.. fish are up in the shallows rolling in small groups all over the spawning areas. the fish caught are ALL being snagged.. no bitters.. in a day or so the bite is going to be great, but for a bit the spawnning will keep them from hitting.

It sounds like muskies are being caught inadvertently. As and FYI, muskies are not being stocked due to VHS issues. Hence, only natural reproduction can keep this fishery going. Here are some suggestions to take care of any fish you are going to release. Remove the hook in the net, not on the bottom of the boat. Keep a bolt cutters handy if the hook is deeply embedded. It is easy to replace a hook on a lure. Protect the fish's eyes and gills. When handling the fish for your picture, be sure to support its belly. The fishes cheeks are strong, but not designed to support a 20 lb or greater fish. Let it recover by facing the fish into the current so that water passes over the gills, not forward and backward which is unnatural. Heck just putting it into the net, if big enough, is a good way to allow the fish to safely recover.

We all need to do our part to protect this fishery. It is a shame that all people don't care about its longevity. The earlier comment about the father teaching his son how to care for the fishery is what is greatly needed.

After being skunked on Friday, we headed back out Saturday morning. Fished till about 7pm. Ended up with 5 eyes, 1 whitefish, and about a 45" musky we couldn't get in the net before she spit it. Nice striped tiger tho!! Saw a guy in the next boat fight a monster for about 10 min before it jumped out of the water 10ft in front of my boat. Nice sturgeon!! Anyways, biggest eye was about 23-25" hard belly female. Rest were males and all were milking yet. All caught in the mouth on jig and minnow in about 10 fow at the mouth by Voyager park. Saw maybe 20 other walleye caught amongst the other boats and on shore. Many were snags on shore. See you all next year!

Was up last week and fished a couple days in the wind and snow. Caught a bunch of nice fish on cranks. We worked for every fish caught..lol I would like to say to the scum bags on shore snaging and kicking eyes on shore that was me yelling at you! Also throwing rocks at the geese...Really????? I wish i had rocks to throw at you! You are the trash that give the rest of us bad names! Go back to your shanty! On a positive note i did see a father/son out on shore. That young man caught a nice fish. The father came over unhooked it and they let it go. Its good to see real sportsman passing the torch on..

fished last week in the snow in wind a cpl of days and managed 40 eyes in two full days in the rapids. 26" was the biggest. water was high and fast, made cranking tough. in the two days we fished it was unbelievable how many ppl mistreat snagged fish, we all know it happens but keep them in water pull hook and let them go. pathetic how many ppl take pics of snagged fish like they actually caught them. guess most ppl sont care. and there was a family on shore that almost got the dnr called on them. the "bigger" kid in the red that was throwing rocks at that goose was not cool. be a sportsman and let nature be. and to the same family you dont kick walleyes onto the rocks after you snag them and take 25 picks before releasing them. to all the actual sportsman good luck fising. put your time in casting stick baits you will get eyes. make sure your bouncing the bottom. you'll lose baits but worth it.

Crushing fish every night!!! The run isnt nearly over in the river. few empty girls but plenty more coming up to replace them. 10% of fisherman catch the most fish because they go more often than you. If you see gyys crushing them be respectful aned have a chat on what technique/baits they are using. Dont just elbow in next to them and cast over there line because the have "the spot" you can cast/jig just about anywhere right now and catch walleyes. some of them are staging, some are spawing, and some are done. filling every depth of water with walleyes. the guy with the muskie in the bottom of the boat- NOT SMART. those fish and there eggs are extremely fragile this time of year. if you catch one unhook it take a pic and let it go. dont lay the damn thing on your carpet removing all of its protective slime it needs for swimming through the rocks and spawning. those big girls have a hard enough time and get beat up enough just spawning.
