Last two days in De Pere have been humbling. Yesterday we fished from 6:30am to 6:30pm. We jigged with a minnow all over and had two hits which we thought we either carp or musky. Then we trolled for 6 hours north of the 172 bridge and caught a 23" and a 19". That is it. Water clarity was like chocolate milk. Today we fished from 7:00am to 6:00pm. Clarity is a little better. But jig and a minnow was awful. Then we tried trolling again. Nothing at all. Then for a last ditch effort we went up close to the damn and pitched cranks. Jackpot! We caught a ton of walleye. Biggest was 26" which we threw back in without a picture since it was spilling eggs. All the walleyes were full of eggs and ready to spawn. We did snag a lot of whitefish. Boats right next to us were catching some big fish up close on the left side of the damn. What worked best for us was a Hollywood color number 7 smash shad. We only lost two cranks. If you reeled it and a moderate pace the fish would nail it. We lost a lot of walleye. Only one we lost was really nice. We had a blast. Still lots of nice walleye being caught. I would skip the trolling gear and minnows. Go right up to the damn and find a spot up close. We will be out all day tommorow again. Hopefully the wind and rain are bearable! Picture is one of the smaller females that wanted to cooperate getting in on a photo op;)

Well folks from what I read and what I have experienced over the last 2 weeks fishing from shore in Voyager park are 2 different things. I have had the best night on Thursday during the rain "15 fish smallest fiah was 22 biggest was 29". And last night was slower but I still caught legal 28 inch fish which were all released. As of color and kinds of baits. I caught fish on everything from walleye divers, husky jerks, flickershad, countdowns, etc. Color I found best to be fire tiger or any thing with an orange belly. Over the last few days I have caught more smaller males or post spawn females. Good luck and tight lines.

Planned to launch at the mouth tonight after reading posts about the mud. Got there and talked with a guy getting off that caught none. Still muddy around mouth in the bay. So went up to Suamico and trolled cranks up to Gaeno reef. Got spawned out 26" female half way and 19" milking male right at Gaenos. Both on fire engine red Smithwick Rogue. Not good for fishing 10:30-1 am. But better than zero in the mud.

Fished from 6:00 am to 11:00 am this morning. Figured it was going to be tough since there were only 25 or so rigs at fox point launch. Started by the dam tossing noisy cranks in 4 to 6 fow. no fished boated,1 hit, 2 lost cranks. Water temp was 40-41 degrees and visibility was about 3 inches. Fished the shallows downstream between the park and the launch. Still no fish. moved north of 172 and began to troll the shallows. Pulled rogues in 5 to 7 fow. still nothing...pulled plug went home and took a nap.

Beautiful day out there today!

Fished 8:30 to 3pm - Zilch! Jig/minnow fished slowly; pitching and vertical. I brought trolling rods, but with muddy water, I didn't think it would pay off. I went down below the 172 bridge to check out a few trollers. One guy caught a 23"er, around 2pm. He'd been there since 6:30 this am.

I marked fish today, but you'd need to drop a jig in their mouth in order for them to find your bait. Didn't even see a fish caught today.

Water has 6" of visibility. Although there are 2 gates PARTIALLY open, there is very little current. Most water is still coming over the spillways - never a good sign.

There were probably 1/3 of the boats there than you'd normally expect for a Saturday.

The Coast Guard was doing safety checks at the launch.

Fished this morning from 2 a.m. to 12 noon. Caught a few whitefish up by the dam. Also caught a few 20" walleyes near the island by the dam. They were caught in the slow water on the breaks. I also caught my largest walleye to date a beautiful 29 inch. This is my first Walleye over 28" and I've been trying for years now, near home and here on the Fox. I did release the fish and thinking about getting a replica done. Water was very muddy so not many were caught other than those few. But the trip was well worth it catching the big one.

Nivek. When the run is on and the river has little current it causes less fish to move upriver. There will still be fish during the run and those conditions. But their will be less of them and they will be more spread out and not as concentrated to certain area's. When the run is going on and you all of a sudden get high dirty water fish will still be around but its alot harder for them to find your bait. Thus making for hard fishing.
