Fished this morning from 6:30 am until 11. Had a pretty good day. My friend and I caught 4 walleyes, 3 were legal size and biggest was 18.5 inches long. Also got 5 nice bluegills, biggest was 9 1/4 inches long. The usual Kegonsa mixed bag of yellow bass and sheepshead as well, but those went back into the water. We had our best luck drifting from 10' to 18' and with that depth the best was 10'.

During one of our drifts my boat got a little close to another fisherman that was anchored. I tried getting around them in what was what I thought was a respectable distance away for a drift fisherman (about 50 feet and only that close for about 30 seconds while the boat continued to drift), but that guy was not happy with us getting too close to his boat. Some people just don't like sharing the water at all! Sorry if I got too close to your boat. I thought I was a respectable distance away!

I only saw a few other fish caught in the area we were fishing, but they were all anchored and we were drifting. Attached is a picture of the fish my friend wanted to take home for a fish fry. All fish were caught on redworms.

Fished yesterday and today for pan fish. Big reds was the ticket from Lunatics Bait Shop in Stoughton. Got 15 large gills yesterday and 20 today. Fish fry tomorrow night! Lunatics ran out of 40 doz. hellgrammites in one day as I wanted to go for perch. BUMMER. More coming in tomorrow. The perch are really hitting if you can find hellgrammites. You can always catch some on big reds though. I have not posted much for quite awhile as I have been after the largest musky I have ever seen. I was crappie fishing this spring when the water was clear and saw this monster swim by, I have fished for this beast at least 2 days a week, or whenever the weather permits. I have been throwing the largest bulldogs from Gander Mtn. and everything in between. She has only followed 4 times in the last 4 weeks, and bulldogs in the largest double tail is all she will now look at. And I have every musky bait made. I will not use a sucker. Fair chase only. So far she wins. Over the last 50 years of musky fishing would you believe I have only caught 5 over 50", and this one far surpasses that! She took a swipe at two 8's and almost had her. If I catch her I will not take here out of the water, but get a picture in my special musky net, and let her go as fast as possible. I will only fish for her this next week only as water temps. will start to be to warm to revive any large fish.

No Wake is lifted. Water was somewhat clean and not green. Wind finally not from N-NE and gills were on fire when you found them.

Talking to myself as usual, guess most people would rather read than post. Water levels are starting to stabilize, still a good 2 ft. high, see some pier decking floating most people have taken there decking up. Saw a couple of boats that had no clue about no wake. High water hasn't hurt the fishing too much, but nasty north wind didn't help any. Anchors wouldn't hold Monday morning, we just slowly skidded into the weeds, was much better early this morning until about 10, so got smart and just left. After my fishing lesson from Straightliner yesterday, might have figured something out. Here's what worked for us, anchor deep fish into weeds about a foot off the bottom. Half a crawler or gob of red worms on #6 red hook under float or tight line. You got to figure out where not giving that away. Haven't had perch yet this year so kept 8 dandy's today, everything else released. Good Luck All

Very nice day except for the nasty north wind, then toss in no wake made an interesting day on the water. Launching from pier on south side didn't help any either. Decided since I had to go slow might as well troll. Picked up 4 whites all on the small side. Anchors wouldn't hold me where I wanted to fish, so had to hide around the corner nothing much going on tried several places got a perch & a sheep for my efforts. Better days ahead .......... Water still rising, highest I've seen it since 08, piers under water some people have just pulled there's.

Just a joke musky. The last time we had a no wake I did get busted. I was out of town the day it went into effect and did not know it because I keep my boat on the lake and didn't use a launch where it was posted. Got busted the next day.

Bluegillkid, SLOW no wake, perhaps you missed the first word of the ban. Not a very smart post. But go ahead, go fast and enjoy your fine.

Have watched lake rise over past 5 days, some piers under water other close, no wake not declared yet but it can't be far off. This is the highest I've seen the lake since 08, when we had no wake over the 4th of July. Front moving in from the NW shut the fish down this morning, after two good days, won't have to clean fish today, two gills and two sheep. Good Luck All

Kegonsa is about 2 feet over summer minimum target level. In two past years I have seen it about a foot higher. Got a few gills yesterday. Today only 3 perch and two short eyes.
