Took the family out on Saturday. Fished from noon until 230 and didnt expect to catch much but just wanted to get the kids on the water. We started trolling and wow the fish were hot. Ended up boating 6 walleyes over 20 with biggest being 25 and one 18 incher that my 2 year old reeled in. Also caught a dozen short ones and a few white bass. I could hardly believe this with all the boat traffic. What a great day. The kids had a blast reeling in fish and my wife learned how to run the net. Pulled boards with shad raps and flicker shads. Hoping to get back out there this week. Good luck to all.

Struggled trying to find any crappie today. Catfish are everywhere. Can't even guess how many of those I caught today on crappie minnows. Beautiful day out there. Will hit it again tomorrow

From Saturday. On by 7am but only lasted until 2pm. Winds were rough and rain continued to pick up. Would have stayed out if I was catching stuff. Did manage two keeper eyes and two cats mid-morning jigging with fatheads in the main river channel, 10-15FOW.

If your looking for a nice and quiet campground very close to "The Pete" here is a good one. I have a seasonal site at Moonlite Campground on the west side. Just north of Necedah. 608-656-6936 Richard has overnight tent sites, daily camper sites and of course seasonal. Very good rates. It's located about 1 mile from Papas Bait and Wilderness campground that is state owned and has a nice launch with a dock.

Josh booked a full day guide trip with me on Friday. We started out the day fishing the "rock" We took a brake mid day and headed back out on "Pete" 

We launched the boat from the Petenwell county park hoping to get out of the north/east winds some. But still ended up fishing the west shore a few hours before dark.

We fished slip-bobbers, Jigs tipped with fatheads in 10 fow. Wind was blowing good from the north/east,Fish were up tight to the west shore.

Ended the evening with 20 plus short eye's,few white bass, couple crappies and 4 perch.

Anyone looking to get out this week, I have 22nd,23rd,24th,25th,26th and 28th still open.

Good luck,Be safe!

Lance from Rome, Wi booked another morning trip on "Pete" for today. He again wanted to find some GPS locations so when he goes out on his pontoon he some knowledge of where to start. The last time he was out with me we marked spots near Monroe Park. Today we spent the first two hours marking some humps on the main lake and submerged wood on the west side. After getting about 75 more spots we got out the dead rods and jig rods tipped with minnows and worked slowly along the west shore channel edge. The "shorties" were everywhere, and hungry! In three hours we boated at least 40-50, along with 1 in the slot just shy of 28 inches. Many times we had 2 or three on at a once, and lost a bunch. We also had 1 lower 20's channel cat. 

Keep a tight line!!!
