Fished Saturday evening and had a great time.  About 15 eyes, 1 legal and 1 slot, 4 white bass, couple big crappie, and too many sheep.  One guy in the boat next to us Earned the nickname "goat herder".  He couldn't miss with the goats and then stuck a 24 inch eye.  Isn't there some sort of a saying about blind squirrels and nuts?  Lol.  

Anyway algae was bad.  Even worse when wind died at dusk. Will be spending lots of time cleaning reels and putting new line on.  Fished 10-16fow in the stumps.  

Good luck out there.

Mike and April from Marshfield booked a morning trip on "Pete" with me today. They have had a seasonal site at Wilderness County Park for a few years and wanted me to show them how to figure out how to choose locations to try. They have a Helix with a Lake-Master data card , so it was easy to show them what to look for to find some productive locations, and how to interpret what is on the display. After yesterdays thunderstorms the bite started a bit slow, but we fished four location so they could get some coordinates to enter into the Helix, so now they have a few places to start. We ended the morning with over 25 "shorties", 3 nice big perch, 9 white bass, kept 6, 9 blue gills, kept 4. 

Keep a tight line!!!

I have the 25th, 26th, 27th, and 28th open next week if anyone want to go out.

Weekend Reports

Friday:

Danny from Albany, WI booked a surprise trip for himself and high school buddies Scott and Todd. They have fished "Pete' many times, but with spotty results. Danny wanted to know where to look and what to look for as far as cover that the fish use. He has a Lake Master data card in his Humminbird, so I showed him how to identify areas to to check out just by looking at the map. We jigged and soaked dead rods again along mid-lake humps, and the buoy line in and around submerged timber. They also never used planer boards much before, so we spent a short time pulling them so I could show them how to set their baits by let-back and bait size so they don't cross lines. We ended the day boating well over 30 "shorties", 1 "Keeper", 2 perch, and 2 white bass.

Saturday:

Diane from New Berlin booked a trip for here husband Dave and son Charley. We trolled the entire trip with Shad Raps and Flicker Shads and finished with 2 "keepers", 38 "shorties", 1 in the slot, 1 crappie, 1 perch, 3 white bass, 1 northern, 1 musky, 2 catfish, and 2 sheep's head. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Tim and Roy from the Rockford, IL area booked a morning trip on "Pete" for today. Tim purchased a weekend place near Cottonville and he wanted to learn a little about the Lake. We jigged and soaked dead rods tipped with fat-heads for the entire trip on channel edges around submerged wood. We boated over 25 "shorties, 1 "keeper", 1 white bass, 6 blue gills, kept 3, and 1 sheep's head. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Chuck from Rome booked a morning trip on "Pete" for today along with his friend Chuck. I guess the boat was chuck-full of fishermen this morning. We started the day jigging and soaking dead rods tipped with minnows and crawlers in 15-18 feet of water. Boated more than 20 "shorties", and 1 "keeper". They wanted to try for some pan fish so we concentrated on some shallower water with ice jigs and red worms and boated 16 blue gills, and kept 11 between 7 and 10 1/2 inches, one 11 " perch, and more short walleyes. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Fished from 7 until 230 today. Boated quite a few shorts but only one over 15 that got off next to the boat. Pulled cranks most of the time and tried jigging a few spots. This was officially the worst day for me this year on Petenwell. Then the icing on the cake was the green slime that had blown into the Wilderness boat landing. Absolutely gross. The smell was enough to make a guy sick. I ended up using the water for campers to flush their septics at the campground to take the first layer off then spent another hour at home spraying the remaining portion off. Water temps seem to be holding steady in the upper 60's. I will be taking my boys out tomorrow and trying the afternoon bite. Will give an update afterwards.
