Was out breaking in the boat on Saturday for little over an hour. Only saw one pan fisherman out the whole time. Water is way down and mostly murky which is unusual fr this time of year isn't it? Played with electronics and marked lots of schools but mostly in the deeper drops but was mostly just running back and forth getting first hour of breakin done. Never saw as many loons ever on that lake as there was on Saturday. Must have been over a hundred swimming about.

Back on Waubesa this morning. Landed at Babcock, if you've got a bigger boat watch when you get out into the lake, I left my motor trimmed down where I normally run it and came it with the trolling motor and hit three rocks. On the south part of the lake, marked many large schools of panfish. Water clarity a little better in 30 FOW. One huge school I dropped down into with the camera and they were Crappies. Didn't look real big. Dropped a little jigging Rapala down but they were on the move and the wind was picking up so I only tried for a minute to see if I could catch and measure one. Did see some white tipped fins of larger fish, but couldn't tell if they were walleyes or suckers (just a glance of the fish, white tips stood out). Beautiful day when I got there, nice and calm. Didn't see any other boats until I was leaving. Almost hate to see opening day of fishing season...

On Waubesa this afternoon. Surface temp was around 37°F, at 18' it was 40°F, and off shore in weedy areas it was 51°F at 3.5'. Water clarity very bad, didn't see any ice but didn't get to the south end. Wind was a real pleasure! Marked some schools of panfish with the side scan. Nice to be back out on the water!

Stopped to check ice at Lake Farm this afternoon, there isn't any! All clear as far as I could see from the launch, don't know if the south end is all jammed up or not.

We took the dog to Lake Farm for a walk after the dog park. Upper Mud is wide open, still a lot of ice on Waubesa but it's not looking too healthy. Water level is down though, don't know if there's enough water to get a bigger boat off a trailer. There were a couple boats out, one in Waubesa cruising by the edge of the ice. Not real pleasant smelling by the shoreline but water was fairly clear (though it's so shallow out to the edge of the ice it isn't an accurate indication). Will be hopefully be getting the rest of the boat setup tomorrow then it's time to hit the water! Big Smile

Hey eyefan I don't think you will want to go out there on Sunday I was out there last Saturday day and the ice is getting real soft and its supposed to be sixty degrees out if you go out from bible there's a big crack that will open up with warm weather . when drilling holes it was pulling big chunks and cubes and you hit water in some spots before hit the bottom of ice but that's just my opinion its up to you

Funny thing about Madison is its kind of a free for all. Found over the years guys fish holes that you drill. I fished Waubesa once drilled 15 holes at dawn and hole hopped. Guys filled in my holes as the morning went and when I tried another guys hole that was not being fished he went crazy. Hollering at the top of his lungs beat red in the face that he was a retired cop and to get outta his hole. So I went and grabbed my power auger barked up the ol' Jiffy and drilled 25 holes in a 5-10 ft radius all around him. Fish etiquette went out the window that day. Lol

Fished Waubesa yesterday,6 tip ups,1 flag, no fish. Ive been fishing this lake a long time, this year was definitely the worst I've had, but probably learned the most about the lake.

The guy looking for a good spot on Waubesa, find out how to get on the upper Mud, lake they're still seems to be a lot of people there. Its right next to it, and must be doing good. And if I was to fish Waubesa like I used to do a lot of, I'd be trying super shallow areas as much as possible to try to find the weeds and where the little guys are hiding.

If you see my one man flip over shack notice the white sign on the back. It says idiot magnet in orange letters. Welcome to Madison bro! It only gets worse every year.
