Went out last night. It was a little choppy but did alright. Caught about a dozen crappie and a mixed bag of other species. Fish were located in the warmer water temp zones, and near structure. Only saw one other boat out.

Tight lines and harvest selectively. Let the females swim another day!

SPEARING....I've been on this lake for years, and I wanted to let you all know about a disturbing fact. It was either last spring or the spring before, but I talked to a dnr guy at the boat launch. And he showed me a breakdown of the spearing reports of each lake around the area. WOW, what a shock. No wonder we can't hardly catch many walleyes of decent size. Lake Nokomis was the 2nd highest speared lake in the area. There were over 25 lakes on This chart. Nokomis had over 2,300 walleyes speared that year. To me that is disgusting and something needs to change. I don't care if this is their "right". They are decimating the walleye population and it shows. No wonder the Minaqua Chain has a 0 bag limit for 5 years. If your gonna spear fish, make your own spear and don't use huge spotlights at night. WHAT A JOKE!!!

Fished all weekend. Saturday seemed really slow, only 4 walleyes caught in our group. Sunday a few more early morning, went after panfish. Nice bluegills seem to be tight in the flooded brush/trees right next to uslands. Found a hole with 14" crappies also , but every island was hit or miss.

Ok. I know I have seen this issue before. Can someone help me out with the rotated pictures? I tried rotating them before uploading but that didn't help. Thanks.

I can't speak to the amount of spearing done but I can tell you we caught one 14" walleye that appeared to be hit with a spear. It had a large gash on one side and a hole in the top of it's back on the other side. I was surprised it was still going. Got into some great action Sunday morning with non stop walleye and crappies. Had my limit of 3 eyes in about an hour and a half with one slot fish at 21" released. Also caught another one at 21" Saturday evening. Jig and minnow was the ticket while crawlers caught a few fish also. Got one walleye on a twister tail as well. All caught on steep drops with structure.

Dances With Eyes,

It's possible,but I really never heard anything nor did I see any spearing happening. Spearing is such a hot topic that I'm sure one of my neighbors would have had a comment or two if the lake was speared.

i heard this lake got hit pretty hard by spearing this year because of not being able to spear on other flowages... Is there any truth to this or just bar banter?

Sorry, missed your post. I'm on the North east side of the lake. Across the bay from Fishing hot spot #40. Hope to get to meet a few of you at some point this spring/summer!!

Mornings are slow as always on Nokomis as far as I'm concerned. Bascially ZIP, but my main objective was to replace a toilet Saturday morning (Objective complete!).

As the water heated up yesterday afternoon we got into fish! About 4pm I pulled my first Walleye on a Crappie Minnow and slip rig. Few minutes later my son pulled a 16" walleye on a J11 Rapala - Pike pattern. The "Walleye mix" from Aquatic Arts was the hot ticket for myself, my father, my son and his girl friend. We pulled Large mouth, pike, 1 crappie (14.5"), & about 4 walleye from 4-8:30. That included a bunch of time from Snags, broken lines, etc. All in all it was a excellent late afternoon fishing trip and we'll be packing up soon and making our way back to SE Wisconsin.

I'll be up next Thursday Evening - Tuesday Morning!

Nokomis was a dead sea for me the weekend but only fished a few spots from shore. Did well below the Bradley dam but the walleyes weren't open obviously. 10 or so keeper perch but threw them back. Will be back up in 2 weeks, missing the opener to fish Green Bay. Good luck fellas

Panfish look to be a week out. We need some sustained warm weather. Went out with Crappie minnows, Worms, and my all time crappie slayer (Rooster tail) and nothing yesterday. Looking forward to next weekend! I believe the entire week should be 60+ degrees and sunny.

Enjoy the cam - Use it as much as you want :0...Lake-Link-Stalkers! Stop by and introduce yourself if you see me on the pier. I'm always up for a beer.
