Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day...teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. I like to share. It's good to see you out there trying.

Got on the water at 5:30 AM and wasted three hours looking for crappies. As a last ditch effort moved into upper mud drifting with red worms over the deep end. Gills suspending halfway down, the rest is history. Off the lake by 2pm w/two limits of 8" gills.

Tough bite for us again today. Started off the weed edge in about 8 FOW near Hog Island, a past spot for success this year, and only managed a decent sized pumpkinseed on crawler dropshot. After lunch and tubing, tried a bay near Bible Camp and located some potential structure but no fish. Stopped at a weed edge in 7 FOW near piers by Babcock and found a good sized gill but didn't realize we were close to some cribs that will need further exploration down the road. Ended back by Hog Island and went into the shade and shallows for some late day bass but nothing to be found. Marked a ton of baitfish and suspended fish in 25-28 FOW, fish were mainly suspended in the 15-18' range mid afternoon but kids were tubing at the time and only noticed them in a couple rider switches.

fished for crappies/gills from 7am to 11a.m tossing 1/32 oz jig heads tipped with 1" curly tailed grubs with 4 lb test line. 2 crappies in S. end of lake close to the rock pile. Changed to LM bass in upper mud lake with surface-frogs. Caught few each, but sure seemed to have a lot that just totally "missed" the lure or just got ahold of one leg on the frog. One time when my frog hit the water, a bass 4' from it jumped right out of the water like he had attacked my bait. We think maybe that bass needs to be fitted with eyeglasses…. Fun anyway. Quit about 3pm. Boats with corks & worms reported that they couldn't get the bluegills at all today. So it was a slow day I guess.

The Fish Has No Boundaries (FHNB) event is July 11-12, 2015 at Gov. Nelson State Park and we are in need of a few fish cleaners for the participants fish that are brought in. We need a few (3-4) on Sat. from about noon to 5 and followed by our annual fish fry that is done by Yahara Fishing Club and is excellent. Most of the fish cleaned from the event are fried that evening as part of the meal. We also need 3-4 fish cleaners on Sunday from about 10-2 which is also followed by a free meal for all volunteers.

Please contact the FHNB website at http://www.fhnbinc.org/ or email Todd at tts@inspeech.com.

This is a very worthwhile event that takes people with disabilities from all ages out for a day fishing trip with volunteers from FHNB.

Hello folks, I am new to Waubesa, would like to try it out sometimes soon. Any suggestion on where I could start off? Also, is there anywhere that is well-lighted up during the night for catfishing? Either PM or leave a comment here works for me! Big Smile

I personally have many, many things that I've found laying on the bottom that I have no idea what the heck they are. But the car in Waubesa that I found with the two missing men still in it from 45 years earlier was the most satisfying of all my finds. Rick

Late report from last Sunday afternoon/evening. Tried a few spots for crappie but didn't find any. I switched to walleye fishing toward evening and got 4 with one being a 16" keeper. Caught them on leeches and crawlers under a slip bobber in 10 feet of water.

Well. Of all the bizarre crap I've hauled out of this lake over the years, this one takes the taco. For the very briefest of moments I thought I'd snagged a decapitated infant corpse. While reality set in almost immediately, it was still about the most macabre moment of my life. Guess that's why I enjoy fishing so much. You just never know what might happen.

Carp aren't biting. Got a couple Walleye and a Smallmouth on crawlers this morning. Largemouth strangely absent.

Question for rkdiver (or anybody else that does diving/salvage on the Madison Chain), what is the strangest thing you've ever found at the bottom of a Madison lake?

Went out to Waubesa on Friday. Tried fishing in the main part of the lake but ended up in Upper Mud lake. Fished from 4:30 to 7pm. Caught 6 northern (all on mepps) but couldn't catch any LM. 2 of the pike were around 30 in. Happy Fishing!
