I work at a gas station near this lake and have heard that there is gills at 8-10 feet on weed lines and have heard of people catcching a lot of small perch. So maybe chartreuse if you're looking for muski/northern.

I thought that was Minnesota. Florida has a lot as well. Did we overtake them?

Wisconsin has the largest population of nesting bald eagles in the lower 48 now.

I fished with friend from 9AM to 1PM today. We caught a few nice gills using pieces of night crawlers on 1/64 oz jigs under rocket bobbers. Fish were in 6 to 8 fow both in the weeds and on the edges.

fished upper mud lake weed-line from 10-2pm today. 5 bluegills. lots of boats, not many fish biting, although the ones we caught were all over 8". put them back in. Worms. We did hear that folks were catching some limits of bluegills on lake Monona drifting at 25' with grubs in 50 feet of water. The report was from someone using a drift sock, although the wind was very light.

Did it dive, or dip?

If it dove in, that would be an Osprey. If it dipped its talons, probably an eagle. My Dad and I had the boat out on Sunday and we spotted a mature eagle. The weekend before that we saw an Osprey plunge straight in and come up with some kind of fish. That's fun to watch.

I love that we see Eagles as often as we do around here. Growing up it was a really special thing to see a Bald Eagle. My folks NEVER saw them when they were younger. When I was 8 I was fishing gills off a pier on Lake Mercer. I turned around to fish the other side and a huge eagle came down not 20 feet from me and grabbed a fish.

They've rebounded well. We see a lot of them around Waubesa in the winter, and more often than we used to throughout the Summer.

There have been a pair of eagles on the lake for about 2 years now... The nest they have is on Lower Mud lake...

Late report from Saturday (August 16).

Started out on the North side out in front of Green Lantern looking for walleye on that rock bar. Not much going on - caught a few nice gills there on big reds. Water clarity seemed a little better there than other parts of the lake.

Moved to the South rock piles and fished weed edges. The wind completely died and the bite was tough. Caught a few short walleye on fatheads and managed two more gills with the big reds. Water temp was 78F.

Right at sun down, I saw a large bird (significantly bigger than a seagull, aka "sky carp") drop down and grab what must have been a fish on the water. The bird looked to be a bald eagle. I was close enough to see the feathers on its legs and saw the talons extended as it dropped down. Has anyone else seen it?

Nope. Babcock. If you are launching, the slip farthest to the left.

herbsuperb, was it at Lake Farm Park launch, lane furthest to the right? I lost my transom saver there a couple months ago. I tried and tried to get it back, but just couldn't get it. I figured someone would eventually come across it.

Got 4 carp this morning. A fifth spit the hook out and it got snagged in a Transom Saver somebody lost down the launch. Largest man made object I've hauled out of there yet. Looked like it had been in the water quite a while.

No smallies this morning, but got a couple walleye, some yellow bass and a 16" LMB. As always, plenty of drum around to pass the time.

Didn't go catfishing last night so I finally got a chance to come out for some early morning fishing. Wasn't expecting much being the middle of August and all. Ended up with 3 smallies (1 keeper), 3 walleyes (2 keepers), half a dozen drum, a 10.3 LB carp and a couple yellow bass.

Hoping to pick up a few more to break my single day multispecies record. Was using a half crawler on a circle hook/carolina rig. Decided to tie an ice jig on an ultra light with a small split shot to try for bluegill, perch, rock bass and the like. Hoped to avoid Drum, Walleye and Smallmouth that way, and in short order I caught a drum, a walleye and a smallmouth. Angry

Can't complain though. I didn't think much would be biting at all. Interesting morning.

If you are looking for pannies (my guess, anyway), head out to 30 FOW +/- 2', out in the middle. I've never seen my FF light up and beep like that...I wasn't fishing at the time, kids were tubing and stopped over that depth more than once to switch kids, and they were marking suspended in all depths. Hope this helps someone.

Set out Carp lines at Babcock for the first time in a few weeks. Only one, but was just shy of 15 LB. Not a bad fish. Plenty of drum biting on crawlers, but not much else. Yesterday was a decent mixed bag with white bass, yellow bass, rock bass, perch, bluegill and walleye. Today was pretty much just drum.

Tried for cats up at the Tenney breakwater Friday night. No hits. Probably won't pick up again until into September.
