FISHING REPORT
5/3/15 7:45 AM CST
Conditions: Partly Sunny
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.

Dont want to sound like a stalker but see you had a fire and was watching you wash the pier. Just thought it is nice to see the lake that I am able to there one weekend a year.

Good Morning,

The CAM costs nothing to operate after the intiital $160-$200. Took 5 minutes to hook into my internet connection up here. The $160-$200 is piece of mind since I live in South Eastern WI. I have family from all over the country that logs in to check weather, wildlife, etc. It sends subscribers emails on movements - Tresspassers or wildlife. The cam is awesome. I do pay $8 for it to keep past video streams. Only I have access to that.

Sorry the yard is a mess. I've been remodeling my cottage for the past year. Down to the last 3 bedrooms and I haven't had a chance to burn the trim.

I'll be on the pier around 6 pm tonight for crappie. Picked up the minnows lastnight. i'll post tonight.

Good Luck Everyone!

That feed is neat, makes me more excited about next weekend, at the very least it will be better than the last few years with the ice going out just a few days before the opener. Last year I remember a few bays still had some ice flows in them.

tlzkaasen, that live video feed is awesome. I'm heading up tonight and will post a report some time this weekend or on Monday. I'm guessing I'll be fishing the dams in the area for the most part but I'm planning on trying some of the shallow, dark bottom bays in the afternoons after the water gets a chance to warm up on nokomis. We have a couple that we do well in for panfish this time of year. Good luck everyone.

Lundguy2,

It's currently 27 degrees out! Forecast is calling for 50's next week with a low of 30's. The opener on my weather app says 63.

Water levels - seem high to me. I put the pier in this past weekend and set it at its highest level. I also have a cam at my cottage pointed down toward the lake so I can watch daily water levels, security, etc.

Made the cam "public" - feel free to use it to check water levels, weather, etc. I do generally turn it off when I'm at cottage during the weekend.

we are heading up to my uncles cabin for the opener with the new boat, wondering about conditions...water levels, temps. Any hints would be appreciated.

Hubb:

Thanks for da travel report... Not sure when I'd try to get down there and have never really fished other than trying it opener last year... There's got to be some spots that a guy might run into a perspective panfish on the "N" side anyway... Just don't have good transportation anymore other than the old truck and just like that option when its safe. Know how hard it can be to get unstuck too and have the appropriate tools, like the come along, tire chains, tow straps & wood to stick in a hole ifin I get stuck... But when I fished a little south of the highway 8 corridor the travel was pretty good and only having to go 30 minutes south seems like a pretty good deal... Thanks for now, gotta get home

I was out there on Tuesday when the winds were 20-30mph. Accessed off HWY N boat ramp, and there was a nice road running north/south. When I left the road was drifted over pretty good in spots, but you could still get around fairly easy off the track as well. I went out about a mile on the road, and came back off of it with no trouble. No slush, and not a lot of snow. Not sure about section of flowage between HWY Y & HWY L, but guessing it shouldn't be much different...?...

How's access with a truck these days??? We were over to the Chetek Chain last weekend for the High School Ice Fishing Championships and travel conditions were excellent!!! I don't think the rims of my wheels were in snow except plowing through drifts and there was not slush!!!
