Hey all! Headed to Petenwell for the first time this weekend. Camping out at the park on the east side of the lake. 

Looks like a lot of eyes being caught this time of year trolling with cranks. What depth are you guys targeting? Any parts of the lake that are more successful than others?

I have been told the water is very stained, any colors you guys recommend using? 

Would appreciate any info! Thanks in advance!

Was out Saturday for a full day guide trip with 4 guys, 2 guys are from Wisconsin and the other 2 guys are from Indiana. Both groups of guys have booked with me in the past on open water and hard water.

We launched the boat from wilderness park @ 7 am and fished till 3 pm. Wind was blowing good out of the north east and later switched to the east.

Water temp was around 64 when we launched the boat. Late in the day water temp was around 67. Not much for warmer temps on Saturday with the overcast skies and cold rain for a couple hours in the morning.

Fishing was very good Saturday. We boated over 60 short eyes,10 keeper eyes and lost 1 crappie @ boat side. We also lost a monster Flathead behind the boat!

Saturday we trolled cranks and boards the entire guide trip

Great weekend of fishing. Saturday I boated my limit of walleyes along with 17 whitebass and 2 cats. Caught the walleyes on a Blue Fox spinner. found an active school in some shallow water catching probably 30 in 2 hrs. Best was 5 in 5 casts. Whitebass and cats on fatheads under a bobber. Sunday Not quite as good 2 keeper eye's, 1 in the slot, but as many of the jumbo whitebass as you wanted to clean. All fish were caught before 10:00am. After that they just shut off.

Kevin from Roscoe, IL booked a morning trip on "Pete" for to day. His son purchased a lake home earlier in the year and Kevin wanted to learn a little about locations and presentations to use. We jigged, trolled and soaked dead rods on the south end and along the channel edge near Monroe County Park. Rain moved in again about 10:30 so we opted to call it a day. In 3 1/2 hours we boated over 25 "shorties", 3 "keepers", 1 nice perch, a dozen white bass, and a cat. All fish were returned for the next angler to catch. 


Keep a tight line!!!

Started jigging around humps around the southern end of the lake without much to show. Tried a couple spots by the Lure and over towards Longview. Again, nothing. Talked to Jesse from Greenwater Walleyes and he told me to break out some boards and cranks and gave me a couple spots to try. The first spot way down south was a wash with only one little eye that didn't even pull the flag down. Moved way up north to another area he said to try. Bingo! Clean water and fish! The first pass I had two eyes, two wb, and a goat. Worked the same area for another couple hours landing a bunch more shorts and a few big wb. That bite died completely when the sky broke and the sun peaked through. I headed back south and tried a new spot that I've seen on the map but never fished. I think I found the only rock pile on that lake. Got a bunch more shorts and wb there and lost two really nice eyes at the boat on a #7 jigging rap. Slow start to the day but persistence paid off! Ended with around 20 shorts, one barely legal and a handful of wb and goats. 

Water was very dirty down south and cleared the further north I went. Trolling bite was in 5-8 fow and jigging was 12-18 fow. Water temp rangedanywheree from 65 degrees to 68. 


Thanks for the help this morning Jesse!

John from Hartland, Wi, and his brother-in-law Russ booked a trip for today on "Pete". Cloudy and a bit breezy when we launched , and the weatherman was predicting a 5% chance of rain. Well they missed it again. We weren't out very long when the west shore started to look a little hazy and I lost sight of the big hill in Necedah. The guy's seen the report and left their rain gear in the garage so I broke-out everything I had on hand to a least keep our shoulders dry. The hard rain only lasted about 2 hours, then was on and off drizzle. It didn't seem to bother the fish much, because we ended with about 30 "shorties", 4 "keepers", and a dozen and a half big white bass. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Jerry  I have the 26th, 27th, and 28th, open for the remainder of the month.
