FISHING REPORT
3/1/15 1:25 PM CST
Ice Depth: 20" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 21° - 25° F
Plenty of ice to drive out, at least 20 inches if not more. Fishing is slow, can catch a few small gills if you keep at it.

There are smallmouth in Ripley but have never caught any through the ice. Catch them quite often during the open water season.

Sorry not a report but was wondering if anyone would be willing to let me know if there are perch in this lake. I have never fished it and was thinking about trying it out this weekend. You can send me a pm if you like. Thanks in advance for any info.

It is not actually a Dane County restriction, but a City of Madison restriction. The only restriction for Waubesa is a weight restriction.

Annual Lake Ripley Lunker's Fisheree this weekend, starts Friday 2/6 at 4 pm and runs thru Saturday 2/7 at 4 pm. $5 per category, 100% pay back and it goes by weight with length as a tie breaker.

I'd like to take a moment to offer my condolences to the Sean Sullivan family, and to thank the folks at the J&T Bait Shanty II for putting this fisheree on. They offer cold beverages, food, and quality baits at a fair price. A nice amount of money was raised through fish category entries, a 50/50 raffle, and raffle ticket prize sales. It's a great feeling to see a community and friends rally like they did to help this family in a time of need.

As far as the fishing goes, it seemed pretty good in most places. No walleyes to speak of but lots of pike, bass, and panfish for some. My oldest son caught a monster just before 12:00. It was awesome to watch and assist him in getting that pike out of the hole. Definitely a moment I'll cherish for a long time to come! Now to decide what to do with it! Any suggestions for a reasonable taxidermist?

Tight lines to all. FD
