Was out yesterday from 9-4, what a gorgeous day for November. Started off in the flats across from voyager Park looking for schools of white bass with little luck, caught 98 over there last Sunday. Then moved over by the dam casting cranks to see if we could luck into some walleyes seeing it was pretty much high noon. I hooked into this sweet 24.5", personal best, within 10 min of being over there then nothing for the following hour. Then to just get some action on the lines we drifted the deep channel of the river and caught a lot of 13-16" channel cats, was a fun day over all.

Well I have been on the River a TON the last couple weeks and here is my report.... summary. Up through last Sunday Oct. 16th the bite was good, finding fish jigging most areas was good both plastics and crawlers. Casting Cranks at the Dam was good boating anywhere between 4-12 Eyes in a couple hours was common, trolling cranks down in the open areas like north of 172 was also good catching a mix of fish. Last week through Saturday Oct 22nd the bite took a turn for the worse.... My summations is the water temps rose up a bit and hit just over 61 from around 55-56 the week before and that along with some big fluctuations in water levels with the winds (both N and S) had the Walleye off balance and the "Other Fish" more active. I was only able to literally scrounge up about 6 Walleye last week.... no matter what I did. Of course I caught Dozens of Catfish and White Bass which are fun but not what I was looking for.

Sunday Oct 23rd brought a nice drop in water temps to around 54 Deg and that triggered some better biting Walleye and less "Other Fish". I fished the SWC Fall CPR Trny out of DePere on Sunday and my partner and I took 1st. Casting cranks was our choice of tactic but the jig bite and trolling bite all seemed to improve with the water temp drop. We did not get into them hot and heavy but managed to land 7 total Walleye and a couple over 20".

The Take away here is the water temps are now sliding back down closer to 50 and that should get the Walleye more cranked up to feed in all areas of the Fox that you would expect once again.

It looks like we have several nice fall days ahead of us still so get that boat out for a run yet and enjoy!

I am still running my Fall "River Only" Special 3-4 hours $100/person give me a shout to go run and gun some spots to chase Walleye.

Very late report. Was out last Tuesday almost all day. Tried from the dam and all the way out a few miles into the lake. Trolling and jigging. Marked a lot of fish from just below the 172 bridge up to the dam but nothing really interested except a few wb and three flatheads. Water temp was 59 degrees in the river. The wb were caught on lindy rigs with fatheads. The cats were caught in 30 fow behind a pile of debri on the channel edge or Rapala flat jigs and ripn raps.

Couldn't keep the whitebass and channel cats off the hook tonight. Released one 15" eye. No other takers.

Did anyone find a yellow Bass Pro bag at the launch last evening?  It was placed on the docks inadvertently and hence left there.  When I returned 20 minutes later, someone had grabbed it.  It contained a rain jacket, a couple hats, and some odds and ends.

By the way, the bag leaks............

Just reply please, and we can arrange for me to get it back.  

Thanks

Casted cranks this afternoon for an hour and a half in the rapids. Had multiple fish on the line but only managed to land one: a ~23" eye. Lots of shad and diving seagulls.

Well it is that time of the season...... Leaves falling and fish moving.  I have had a couple chances to go play on the river in the last week and have had good sucess.  Even though the bite should continue to improve the fall fishing is underway on the Fox.  We had good sucess with jigs/plastic and Jigs/Crawlers and Casting Cranks.  I did not pull out the boards at all but my suspicion is working the channel edges and mud flats will find some sucess also.  Get out and enjoy the fall and some fall fishing.  I am running fall "River Only" specials for Walleye fishing on the Fox again this year.  Call or e:mail me for details.  I am still poking around on Green Bay also and hoping that bite will improve as it should with the coming weeks.
