Went out Sunday 6-11am. Boat traffic was low  only boat out for the first few hours. Looked for walleye on the east shore with no luck. Made a few moves and found some small eyes at the hump to the north. Jigging fatheads at the weed edges produced bass pike and occasional small walleye. Got about 4 of each but everything pretty small but good fun. Fishing 9-12 feet around weeds. Anyone ever come across decent walleye on ripley? I know it's a bass lake, but wonder if there are any good sized eyes caught . Image is of a 16" white bass I caught last week on ripley

The Thursday night bass league will be on Ripley this week, instead of Rock lake.  We're trying to avoid two nights in a row of having a bass league on the Rock lake.  I'll post a revised schedule in the next week or so.

Hope to see you on the water.

My wife and a friend left Ripley about an hour ago and she left a kayak paddle by the launch.  If whoever picked it could send me a PM to return it, I would be more than grateful!

Got out for the Thursday night tournament with my brother last night.  Wind was brutal but we managed to catch fish... not to mention they were all short of 14" and we had no keepers (biggest was 13 3/4").  He out fished me, but we had fun.  Definitely ready to finish the season out and get to ice fishing this lake.

Not a big bass fisher but just a heads up on the Ripley no wake rules from 7:30 on.   I have been tagged with a nice hefty ticket for making a wake 3 minutes too early.  The lake has eyes too and are happy to report violators.  

Good luck all!

Join us for a Thursday night bass league.  The intent of the league is to have something a little closer than Madison and more importantly, to have FUN!!!


All are welcome!  We will be launching out of the Scout camp this week.

Hope to see you on the water.

Pier is in. Crazy windy on Saturday. Caught 4 decent largemouth, but not worth the trouble. Was out for less than 2 hrs. Wind was 20 mph, launching boat was a joke worthy of Youtube. Weeds and grass just getting started.
