Dan from Madison booked a mid-day trip with his grandson Lev on "Pete" for today. It was a beautiful day to be on the water for sure. Almost clear blue skies, and no wind. We don't get to see a day like this on Pete very often. For the most part we vertical jigged the timber along the channel edges with 1/4 ounce brush jigs tipped with small fatheads, and leeches. Most of our fish were on the 12 -16 foot contour. Orange, and pink produced most of the action. We boated 24 walleyes in the 13-15 inch range and lost many more. All fish were returned to fight another day. We did have one cat as well. Trolled cranks for about an hour and never had a fish, not even a white bass! We are no longer allowed to give any information other than I have posted, so you will have to follow my parner link to get more information. Sad

Keep a tight line!!!

Just a quick note to say "Thank You to Jesse Quale, Green Water Walleyes for an outstanding day on the water." I had never met Jesse Quales prior to this past Monday 6am scheduled outing. Jesse arrived professionally early, boat was launched and ready to run. We immediately efficiently began to target Eyeballs as we trolled and jigged for then through the entire 8 hours. I asked many questions & learned quite a bit about the Flowage, what turns the walleyes on, depth, structure, fishing strategies different times of year, types of baits, using boards etc. etc.

We hooked many walleyes and many other species. We had a terrific, informative, educational day on the water. I would use this service again and recommend Jesse Quales highly.

Not only that but I'm sure you agree, he also has a very cool name and lives up to it! Kinda reminds me of the coolest, fastest draw, outlaw ever... Clint's... Jesse Whales hahahaha SmileSmile Kidding aside.

You are a true Professional Guide. Thank you JQ.

Five Stars ***** Props out to ya Brotha!

PeterB.

Made it out on the water at about 8:30 this morning and fished until about 1. Very, very slow day. Launched by the Lure and headed to the west side. Then south. Then back east and then to the north side of the flowage. Working small humps and breaks in 7-20 fow. We varied the baits in size, color, and running depth, and brand. Only managed about five whitebass and one crappie. No walleyes or cats. The algae is VERY thick. The wind was working it south. North of the Lure wasn't horrible but the further south you went the thicker it got. Water temp was 74 when I got on the water and was 78 when I left. Usually I mark a lot of fish in the ares I run but today I hardly marked anything. Even in the channel. I'm guessing the algae bloom and "cold" front/high pressure system is the culprit. Will be back again soon! Good luck!

Kind of a fishing report – I’ve been fishing the river above Biron for too many years to count but after catching 79 “shorties” without a legal one this spring I decided to try something different. Since I live only ten minutes from Nekoosa and never fished Petenwell (hard to believe) I started reading the posts on this site going back to spring fishing and into last year and decided to try trolling with planer boards. This past Friday was the accumulation of everything I learned with the help of all your knowledge. With a friend from out of town along we started out at Long View Point and headed to the Lure, the first ½ hour 45 minutes was pretty comical trying to get set up but after we settled down the fishing began and the first fish I caught was a 19” keeper walleye on a flicker shad “bloody froggy”, after that we caught one shortie, one slot 21”, a few white bass, and two cats. We had a great time and just want to say thanks to all of you that put in the time, especially the guides, and still give out great information for other people to have it a little easier and make it enjoyable.

HUBIE What i do to find crappies is troll small cranks on the main lake. #4 hornets work the best. you will have to go threw alot of white bass. Once you catch a crappie run over that spot a few times to locate them. Out infront of the lure on the east side. long view on the west side has had some nice crappies all summer.Also another way would be to slip bobber fish the main channel. there is alot of wood there and it holds alot of fish. If you head to the river you can fish trees that have fallen in the river. Weedless jigs tipped with half crawler works the best Wink Wink Guys if you launch your boat on the west shore of petenwell. Long view boat launch is all good to go. the power company Cleaned all the sand out from the ramp. For more pictures and videos check out my facebook page. Green water walleyes guide service Also you can follow us on twitter. If you looking to book a guide trip? I have these dates open in august 4th,5th,6th,7th,9th,10th and a few days lator in the month Big Smile

Anyone fishing besides the fishing guides? Catching any crappies. If so are you catching them in the channel or what depths? Any info would be great, thanks.

Hit the water today at 6am for a full day guide trip. I fished with 2 really nice guys who didnt want to go shopping with there wives today. Water temp is finally on the rise with today heat wave. At 6am water temp was 70 and when we left around 3pm water temp was 75.8 It was kind of a brutal day with all the wind blowing from the south. We trolled cranks and board from 6am till noon. Afternoon we ran to the river and jigged for the last few hours of the trip. Big Smile Big Smile

Work the flats and channel edges. Run fit 10 to 30 feet of line out and just go. I don't catch a ton of walleyes but I get a few and always manage more wb than anyone could ever want. Wb are everywhere. You can be over 30 fow or digging your baits into the mud in 3 fow and you can bet you're going to catch wb. The only crappies I seen to find are near or on the channel. Walleyes for me while trolling are a little mystery. But those are normally in the 6 to 16 fow range.
