MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

Crappieslayerz,

Your best bet is to download Navionics USA to a phone or tablet that has gps. Costs about ten bucks for Android users. Not sure about Apple's price. The map covers the entire lake and the river up to just upriver of the second boat launch above plank hill. I use this app a lot and it's pretty accurate.

Bob joined me for a half day guide trip on saturday!

We launched the boat @ 6 am and fished till around 11 am

Water temp was in the upper 70s with no wind the entire trip.

There was a lot of green all over the lake, We had to jump around to find cleaner water to fish. We started trolling the river and later moved out on the main lake.

Saturday we pulled cranks and boards all morning, # 7 flicker shads worked the best for us.

Sunday

Jeff booked a full day guide trip with me on "Petenwell".

We launched the boat @ 6 am and fished till 2 pm. Just after we launched, A storm came in and we had to sit the storm out at the launch.

Storm passed and we headed out to the main lake. Wind was blowing good out of the south east. Later in the trip the wind switched to the west.

 We pulled cranks and boards for about 6 passes and only boated 1 eye, I told bob we need to get the jig sticks out that the trolling bite mite of shut off with the storms.

We put the trolling gear away,Got out the crawlers and headed north, There we jigged along the main river channel and fished a couple deep holes in the river.

Anyone looking to get out this week, I have 3 openings.

Good luck, Be safe

Mostly crawlers! It seems towork best dragging down channel edges rather than along them or up them leeches have worked well minnows to depends on the day and what they want and leader length from weight to floating jig differs day to day depends where in the water the fish are some times 16" leader and some times I've gone up to a 5' leader but purple or orange floating jigs produce the best.

definately want to stay away from the crawlers the sheephead will find it before the cats.I have been doing awesome on fatheads on floating jigs. That way you don't have to deal with the mess and stink from stink bait. Its been a cat frenzy

Catfish can be caught just about on any given spot on "Petenwell Flowage"

Guys catch catfish from shore and out in the boat. You can fish from shore in the park in Nekoosa,Plank hill,yellow banks and catch cats. Out on the lake guys fish off shore from long view point,wilderness park,10th street boat launch. East side they fish from shore At petenwell county park,chesters creek and a couple spots up by devils elbow.

For the channel cats use stink bait,For flatheads use live suckers. You can use crawlers for the channels but the sheepsheads will drive you nuts! They also work great as cut bait for cats. Another thing would be is just troll crank baits on the lake or river.

With all the rain yesterday and the warmer water temps the cats will be hot on both the lake and river.If you fishing in a boat fish the bends in the river, both shallow and deep. you also will want to fish the deep holes along the main river channel. If your fishing out on the lake fish shallow water they are thick when the water temp are warm like they are now.

Go out from the Lure Bar launch, then fish the nearest drop off with a jig and a nightcrawler and you will catch all the channels youll ever want.
