Babcock launch has some shallows with rocks as you enter the lake. Follow the markers and you'll be fine.

Looking at expanding my musky "territory" to the madison chain. Ive fished wingra before and will again. Have heard waubesa is a good place to go. Im not looinh for spots or none of that i will find that all on my own, just looking for the best place to launch a boat, and if there are any major navigation hazards or things of that nature before i tear a motor up on a new lake. Thanks in advance. Feel free to pm me to keep the clutter off the thread. Tight lines

Dad asked me for some fish for him and mom on Friday. Started fishing around 9:30pm. First two casts caught the needed two legals so spent the rest of my time looking for new spots. Lots of dinks caught. Cranks.

Besa continues to be a tough bite...lots and lots of little fish around...cranks were the only thing that produced fish...weeds were annoying to say the least...kept one big male (full of milt). Fish was 21 even though the pic looks way bigger...hope to get out this weekend to see if there is a trolling bite

Report for Wed night...fishing has picked up a little...fish were a little more aggressive but still only hitting the back treble...cranks and plastics worked equal...starting to see lots of largemouth and they are big...several appear to be north of 20" (see them with headlamps)...managed a good number of Waldo's but very few legals

FISHING REPORT
5/19/15 10:11 AM CST
Conditions: Sunny
Got a late start with a 7:20 am launch at Lake Park Monday but didn't matter with the lockjaws. Water temp 62 on Waubesa, 66 in the upper Mud channel by the expressway. Heard the flotilla killed the crappies on Friday so for partner & I it was of course the wrong day. Cool and windy and very slow bite but watching the crappie pairs sitting over their nests (we decided to let them alone, they seemed more interested in protecting the nests than feeding anyway), observing our friend from last year, the osprey, power diving for fish, and the tree swallows back in the channel on Upper Mud feed their young more than made up for the measly 5 gills we caught in 5 1\2 hours. Had a vibrant colored box turtle in the channel chew on my slip bobber and then chase it up to the boat when I reeled it in, comical. Partner netted two bass 14 & 13" also. Gills & bass cruising close to the banks. Four big carp also circled around the side of our boat in that channel. Two of the five gills were loaded with eggs and looked like they were very much ready to spawn with one female so huge with eggs couldn't believe it, not sure I believe in catching spawners anymore and now prefer to wait until post spawn. All gills were very lean on the fillets also, probably from coming off of winter I figure, another reason to wait until they fatten up. I think the frontal system that went through Sunday afternoon put the fish down. Only about six trailers in the lot at Lake Park. Good luck.

Well the fishing has been pretty terrible the last few days. Finding the fish has not been a problem. Strikes are lazy at best. Thrown everything except live bait. So I asked my dad if he wanted to go and look for mushrooms today. He has never had any luck finding them so I took him to one of my favorite dead apple trees and they were everywhere. AWSOME. Found enough under one tree to not look anywhere else. Ticks were everywhere. Surf and turf with morels tonight with the fam. Fishing should pick up with cooler temps coming.

So much for ideal conditions (ideal moon phase, pre-front), for musky fishing. Had 2 lazy follows, had 3 weak swipes at surface baits, saw some other fish on the move, but not eating. We even got out early enough to fish moonrise @ 5:10. We fished the se area where we had seen fish the previous 2 weeks. Saw a good crappie bite going on.

Pretty slow night. Baits had to be fished very SLOW. Cranks worked best with no color preference. My buddy and I kept a few for Friday's fish fry.

HELP!! I pulled a huge BRAIN FART and left my Garmin fish locator unit(not the fancy kind with any GPS mapping) laying on the side of the boat rail and headed towards home tonight!! CRAP!! I have an older Sylvan with the wide side rails so I would imagine it is somewhere in the vicinity of the storage facility to the dog park area. I hope it landed off of the road and not ran over or maybe got FOUND by someone who is a LAKELINKER. It is black, approx 7" by 7" in size with a foam protector on the face that has GARMIN in white and a round plug on the back. If anyone finds this and hopefully reads this PLEASE let me know!! Otherwise I will be walking the roadside tomorrow after work I guess!! THANKS in advance for any info!!

Fished from 5pm to just before sundown and managed 22 crappie and one bluegill. Just out from Lake Farm dock. The bite seemed best just before the sun went down with the exception of three or four pesky northerns, but the wind was cold and steady, not the best but certainly not the worst.
