Fished abt 7:30/8 - 2:30. Weatherman was off. Froze my butt off this AM at -20. There's a ton of ice, close to bottoming out the auger.

Moved around some but didn't find much beyond wht bass. Didn't mark a lot but they bit good. Minnows were not it. Caught one wht bass, two Walters, and a cat on minnows. Rest on Jigs. Used vertical glow jig, jiggin rap, buckshot, and kast master gold tipped with spikes. Pretty good until abt 11 then started to slow. By 1:30 it was slow. Most fish plastered to the bottom. I think the Walters are starting to move up River...? Finished with 19 white bass, 6 crappie, 5 Walters, a whopper blue gill, and a catfish. Should be good from here on out if you find fish. Couple more weeks and I'm done.

Fished today with 6 great guys who booked a full day guide trip with me on petenwell. We fished today from 7am till 4pm. Travel on the lake is ok in some spots. Most of the drifts are rock hard and you can drive over them.Other areas you will need 4x4 with good tires. We started out catching crappies/White bass right off the bat. Around 10am fish shut down to hardly marking a fish. We picked up shop and moved. Second spot we finished up with 30 white bass 9 crappies.Lots of lookers at second spot.At times this afternoon 2 or 3 fish would chase your bait couple feet off the bottom and drop back down.. Hard to get them to bite at times. As you drive off any of the launches you can see the lake has dropped with the lowering of the water level.Guys are still driving off long view,wilderness,petenwell county park. Both spots we fished i had 24 plus inches of ice. Big Smile Big Smile Anyone looking to book a guide trip? I have a couple openings left in march...... Be safe, Good luck, Stay warm and catch lots of fish. Big Smile Big Smile

As reported by Jesse of Green Water Walleyes, went out all day Saturday for a great trip. Fun group to fish with, my group as well as the others. The pictures speak for themselves. Learned some tricks. Caught some awesome crappies, nice white bass and a couple of short walleyes. Thanks Jesse. Looking forward to a late May or June trip.

Noodlerod, went off Longview this morning and the launch is in great condition. A couple of weeks ago I went way east along the north side of the heave to get to the south side in my jeep. Have to go half way across the lake and keep an eye out to be safe. Good luck.

fmfd57. There is a boat landing at Monroe town park. I am afraid to give directions because after a couple dozen times going there, I miss it and have to look for it myself. Need to find out how the access to the lake is there now. There's been a big heave there all winter. Difficult with a four wheel drive, impossible with out it. Atv's don't have a problem. Any body know how longview is for driving on? I wanna go south of the heave. There was a way around the heave the last time I was up.

Looking forward to it! I'm fishing all of the AIM events this year. I'm hoping Petenwell turns out as good as I think it will!

Fished the channel edge off Monroe today. Slow. Managed 4 whitebass and 1 short walleye. I was the only guy out there until early afternoon when one other guy set up about a quarter mile south of me. There weren't more than a half dozen people anywhere within my vantage point. Its been pretty slow for me all year. Always managed to catch a few crappies and a few whitebass but never really had a "super" day. Also never caught a walleye over 20", only a handful between 15"-20", although quite a few shorts. Don't get me wrong though, I just love to fish and love this lake! That's why I fish it 2-3 times a week. I'll be back next winter with a vengeance. This was my last time out, as Thursday I'm heading to Arizona to hone my golf game, geocache in the backcountry, and basically just soak up the sun! (I know I'm lucky!) Be back in late April to hopefully bump into some of you guys on the soft water. In the mean time fish hard and stay on top . Good luck. P.S. the landing off Monroe is probably in the best shape its been in a couple of weeks. Never even touched the skid plates going out or coming in. Travel anywhere isn't bad at all if you stay in the already made wheeltracks although I wouldn't venture out without 4-wheel drive.

Went out with Jesse on Friday as per his report below. Conditions were pretty rough, but the fishing was solid. This is our second trip with Green River Walleye and I will definitely be booking with Jesse again. I'm really trying to learn this body of water and Jesse has been a great help in showing me the ropes. He's a class act and knows this body of water better than anyone. Thanks again for a great outing!
