Guys are still catching a few white bass below the nekoosa dam. For the most part the white bass are just about done spawning. Water temp in the river has been in the lower 60s early morning. upper 60s to lower 70s late afternoon.

Water temp on the main lake has been in the lower 60s early morning and upper 60s late afternoon. 

Trolling bite has been good with the warmer temps.Most of our fish are being caught in 8 to 10 fow. we have been trolling # 5 flicker shads on the main lake. blue/crome worked the best on sunny days. cloudy days fire tiger,purple worked the best.

Crappies are being caught early morning and late evening up shallow. Slip bobber tipped with fatheads plain hook,Small bright colored jig worked the best. 

Anyone looking to get out this summer? I have a few dates open each month.

Good luck this holiday weekend

Be safe

Dave from La Crosse booked a morning trip for today. He purchased a lot near Long View Point and wanted to look around the lake and get some ideas of presentations and locations. We started on the south end near the dike and ended up in the river by Plank Hill. We did get in some jigging and trolling and finished with 15 "shorties", 1 in the slot, 2 northerns, 3 sheep head, and 3 catfish.


Keep a tight line!!!

I was out on "Pete" this morning with Chad from Wisconsin Rapids, and Dennis from Pittsville. We worked jigs and soaked dead rods along the south buoy line to start the trip, then pulled planer boards and cranks for a while. A really tough bite this morning. Everyone I talked to at the ramp said the same thing , really slow with some "shorties" and I only heard of 1 "keeper" being caught. We had 1 18" "keeper", a hand full of "shorties", 1 northern, 1 small mouth bass, and 1 white bass. There is a big lake fly hatch happening on the south end so there is plenty of food in the system right now so I think that is why the bite is so slow. Water temperatures were in the upper 60's.

Fished Friday trolling spots from the south end of the lake all the way to Devil's  elbow. Quite a few fish with most small. The lake is full of 10 inches. Did get a keeper live bait rigging.  Then Fished Saturday rigging a few spots on the lake and ended up with 8 keepers 15.5 to 17 inches. 7 slots 22.5 to 26.75 inches. Had a lot of short fish too. Fish were not very  aggressive as we lost quite a few heavy fish half way to the boat.

Fished with Joe Jochman on Sunday, you may have seen my son's post (So wis). Joe is an awesome guide. I've never seen anybody work harder to put us on fish. I'm so thankful to have found him. We caught a bunch of fish today but even if the fishing sucked it would have been worth every penny for the knowledge he shared. Thank you Joe, The mighty Petenwell is becoming more understandable thanks to you

Went out this past weekend with Fishing Guide Joe Jochman with Advantage Guide Service. I've fished this water with my father a number of times with limited success. On a day where we thought they were going to be flying in the boat we really had to work for them (Joe did) and he was fast, efficient and patient.

With the wind we trolled the river and caught close to 60 fish. 5 keeper walleyes, a lot of white bass, a few cat fish, and sheepshead. We hooked into a big muskie but she got off right at the boat. The fish seemed to be biting both with and against the current on different colors.

Joe finished off the day fileting our fish for us and taking pictures as well. He was a very helpful and kind guide even speaking highly of a few other local guide services in the area -  which speaks volumes to his character and business (in my opinion).

If you've never had a guide before or just want to learn some really amazing tips and catch some fish I'd recommend him to anyone.

A good friend of mine left two tackle bags at the 10th St. landing (Juneau County) on Saturday and he just happened to mentioned it to me.  I said I would put something out here to see if any honest person picked them and would like to return them.  I'm sure there would be a token of appreciation if returned.

Thanks and my appreciation.

Was a great day to be out after all the wind Saturday. Launched from Petenwell Park at 6am. Was a little slow for us today but did manage a couple of keepers at 17 inch each and a 21 inch slot. The normal short fish although not very aggressive.  Quite a few short hits with fish coming loose half way up. All fish rigging in 16 to 22 ft of water.

Fished Monday night and Tuesday around the mouth area.  Half a dozen walleyes (1 keeper) and just a couple white bass.  Was nice fishing as long as out of the wind.  Should only pick up later in the week.  Lots of debris in the water on Tuesday.  Channel markers were not out yet on Tuesday.

Good luck.
