Fished Saturday with Denis and his mother and sons. 8 hour trip with his other sons following in a second boat. We switched the boys after 4 hours to let everyone fish with me. Wind blew hard most of the day , making for rough travel. Dead sticked the first half catching 6 from 21 to 25 inches along with alot of shorts. Second half we pulled cranks, and flys. Went south to do so because of the wind. Ended the day with 2 keepers , some perch ,white bass and crappie.

Fished yesterday morning. Got a late start but was on the water about 745 until 130. The white caps were present in the morning with water temps around 55 degrees. Went on the north end and soaked dead rods with jigs tipped with minnows. Managed a dozen short walleyes and one channel cat. Seemed the walleye bite was slow. There was about a half dozen boats out and all were moving trying different water. Was going to pull out the trolling gear but my brand new Mercury kicker motor decided to break the pull cord so I just called it a day. The algae is still thick depending on wind direction. Yesterday Wilderness boat landing was a gathering place and I spent about another 45 minutes when I got home washing the junk off with the hose. Wilderness park is all closed up but the dock will remain all winter. The river bite should be picking up with the cooler temps in the upcoming forecast. I will be taking a break from fishing here in the next week to see if I can fill my freezer with venison but until next time, good luck to all.

Jim and his son Jason from Fort Atkinson, WI booked a morning trip on "Pete" for today. They have fished the lake many times in the past with limited success, and were interested in learning how to select areas to try and presentations to use. They like to go after pan fish so we concentrated the first 2 1/2 hours on finding gills and perch. We boated 15 blue gill, kept 13, and 2 perch. To end the trip we jigged and soaked dead rods for walleyes and boated over 3 dozen "shorties, 1 "keeper", and one more perch. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Dennis from New Glarus,along with his sons Kevin and Dale finished their 2 day trip on "Pete" today. They usually go up-north for the father-son get together but wanted to stay closer to home, and have never fished "Pete" before. The day started out with a pretty stiff wind from the southwest with white caps and good size swells. We headed south again to find a little calmer water and soaked dead rods with minnows and crawlers again. The wind died to almost nothing around noon and the algae got to thick to handle, so we headed north. Fished channel edges between Longview Point and Monroe Park and finished the day with well over 50 walleyes, 2 "keepers", 4 in the slot, 1 at 25", 1 at 22", and 2 at 22 1/2", 2 crappies, 8 white bass, and two sheep's head.

A late report from Friday the 13th. I must say it wasn't a bad luck day for Chief and Mike. The water is starting to cool down and the fall bite is in motion. We jigged and soaked dead rods tipped with fat-heads and a chunk of crawler along the buoy line all morning. We went through 7 dozen minnows, and 2 dozen crawlers broken into thirds and ran out of bait by noon. We boated between 50-75 walleyes, with 1 being a "keeper", and many 14 3/4 - 14 7/8, 2 crappies, 1 was 14 1/2, 2 blue gill, 1 perch, and 6 nice big white bass.

Did some casting today from shore up river. Caught a big white bass right away on a fire-tiger Ripple Shad. Not another bump. Casted some cranks with a couple short bumps. Picked up one eye about 18 inches on an orange ring worm. Went back down tonight and the only fish active were the carp. And they were everywhere! Took a ride up to Wisconsin Rapids and casted cranks up below the dam. Managed one eye at 19 inches on a purple shadow rap. 


I talked to a couple guys earlier on in Nekoosa that said it was a pretty slow day in the boat. Water temp was around 57 degrees.
