Does anyone actively target smallies in the river? If so any tips would be appreciated

Still strong. With this cold front slowed down a bit but there are plenty fish available. Just follow the crowd. Good luck!

Hows the shore fishing at the park been? Looking to take the brother in law out for a couple hours. He hasnt fished in years and looking for a fun/good place to catch some fish. Any species will do. Any info would be great. Thanks in advance

As for fishing report. I caught pretty much the same amount of white bass than the previous report using minnows plus a bonus huge carp that swallowed my minnow. Ran out minnows as always and try gulp and other plastics with minimal results. Still fun day to be out. Love the Fox River I believe that offers a great fishery. I just follow all the runs for the several species the inhabit the river. I love FISHING keeping is a different story but Im nobody to judge other people. We must be aware of the river situation period. Good luck all!

So for a real report. The white bass are still biting pretty good. I fished down by title town brewery and caught about 40 white bass in a couple hours. Gulp minnows seemed to work the best.

"No one cares" was posted earlier. It's all fun and games 'till someone gets hurt, would be more accurate. Don't be the someone keeping 28 inch walleyes that you chop into pieces to give to the pregnant neighbor or her breast feeding daughter and kids. Lake Baikal in Russia, Hudson River in New York, and the Fox River in Green Bay and the Fox valley were some of the most polluted fresh water systems in the world. I like to think the lower Bay is turning a corner and kids and grandkids will not have any "advisories" to think about in the future.

What I find interesting is that people do not apply the same logic to the lower bay or green bay water system in general.  In a college study it was simply amazing how penetrated this water system is with PCBs.  They lowered the standards on the fish consumption on the Bay to build the fishery.

I would not do it myself but I don’t have a problem at all with folks keeping fish from contaminated waterways. PCB’s and mercury persist in the environment for a very, very long time and just get recycled back into the system when an organism that has accumulated them dies. Harvesting and consuming those fish helps remove those contaminants from the river. Bon appetite and thank you for your efforts in cleaning up the Fox!

Oh, so if you clean your fish like you said you don't have to worry about the fish consumption advisories? Yeah, I don't think that's how it works. If that was the case then there wouldn't be fish consumption advisories and they would tell you to just clean your fish "properly". Toxins such as mercury, pcb's, etc. not only build up in the belly fat and mudline but the fishes meat as well. I'm not trying to troll just educate. Go ahead and eat what you want I just think it's stupid to not follow guidelines that are in place to protect you and your health. You probably will be fine as long as you don't eat those fish very often but why take the chance? Also, I fish 4-5 days a week idk what you were trying to accomplish calling people out about not fishing lol

Good mix of stuff being caught to bend the pole. White bass, goats, carp, buffalo, smallies, walleye, cats. Twisters/jig is all you need. Sturgeon are up at the dam(spawing, I assume?). Be careful with them.
