What's the word with the catfish right now? Are they spawning? How's the bite?

countryboy123,

Yes, I fish from a boat, but I often target areas that would be easier to target from shore. However, most shore fisherman rarely seem to target these highly productive areas. One of the biggest mistakes I see a lot of shore fisherman making is they think they have to cast out as far as they can from shore when many of the fish are right beneath their feet during key feeding times in the evening. If I was fishing from shore, I would be casting parallel to the shore about in a depth of 2-4 feet, just like I do from my boat. I will often park the boat right off shore and mimick being a shore fisherman in order to cast as parallel to the bank as possible. This way, you are able to target the same depth for an entire cast rather than dragging it upwards from deep to shallow, you can target shallow, or target medium better. You need to pull the lure in the direction of the current flow, not opposite and not from deep to shallow. Bass will rarely be found in stagnant water unless there is cover; however, they do not like fast current, just enough current to keep the water oxygenated and offer a steady food supply. Drum on the other hand will be in fast current and are strong enough to attack lures in fast current. I don't target cats, but catch a good # of them, too. Hope this helps.

Conditions: Raining
Had a hunch fishing would be good tnite with the rain and changing pressure system....and was correct. Fished 6:15 to 8:30 and landed about a dozen smallies ranging from 10" to 17". Lost a pig that that was at least 20", probably over 4#. Got off right next to the boat as I was grabbing it. Caught her buddy right after which was a solid 3 pounder, only 17" but fat and full. The key was finding slack water and they were very shallow for a solid hour but then ventured back out.

The drum bite was not as good, only caught 2 but they were decent size, however, not those 10 pound slobs I had been catching.

Bassstream. What were you catching the sheephead on. I'm bringing a couple of 10 yr olds up for the weekend. If you were catching them on cranks, that would be perfect for these boys. They haven't quite figured out the jiggging thing yet. They don't really care what the catch, they just need to be catching. ??

Thanks

Fished 1 to 5pm Saturday. Water was high and lots of current, but I was finally able to find bass holding tight to cover in extremely shallow water (<2fow). Landed several 13-14" bass and a nice 18" 3 pounder. Caught more drum than I could count, lots of big drum still there. Also got a bonus 20+ pound carp, not foul hooked! Bit a crankbait which was a first for me.

Tried for musky on monday night. casted the east shoreline from the dam to fox point launch with no results, moved out to the bay to try and find something with nothing as well. Water temps were 73-74 degrees in the river.

Fished the last couple afternoons at the Fox and kinda striking out. Ive tried everything from cranks, twisters, worms. Ive tried different techniques and only a couple hits to show for it. Other people who were there were having about the same, with an occasional sheep head pulled up. Hopefully with warmer temps forecast the bite turns on.

Tight lines and stay dry

If anyone finds an Offshore mini planar board floating around, please PM me. A channel cat smacked my Salmo yesterday and knocked the board off in the fight. I was fishing from shore and couldn't reach the board, but sadly watched it float up and away javascript:addEmoticon('Crying')

It looks like the picture here, but mine had a red clip on the back instead of the snap swivel.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Can smallmouth bass be caught just as good on in the Fox river in De Pere and out in Lower Green Bay as in Sturgeon Bay? Ill be heading up that way this weekend, and i was wondering which would be better when it comes to smallmouth.
