Water temp 78° Carp were in the cattails, but not spawning yet. I'd call them staging. Caught the usual handfull of snake northerns and one lmb. Looking forwards to shooting some Carp.

Over fishing is an issue. Don't forget about the spraying for milfoil last couple of years. I saw lots of dead fish and I know others did also.

I have to agree that overfishing the last few years has finally taken it's toll.Fished today and into the evening and was a dead sea. Didn't see any fish or catch anyfish. Used to be awesome bluegill and bass lake. Threw everything in the tackle box at the bass and skunked. Tried bluegills with bobber and crawlers and never had a bite. To many people filling freezers the last few years has finally done damage. Try a different lake next time.

that's what overfishing and over bagging will do to a good lake! I hope the new panfish rules go into effect when passed!! Sweating

Fished the cabbage beds and only got 2 little northers casting. Then went in by the reeds to fish for pan fish and got nothing. Northerns were caught on a cabelas swim bait and a Mepps Cyclops in blaze orange. I think I'm finished with this lake for a while. I was expecting to do well and was very disappointed. It's not that I didn't catch fish it was the total lack of even seeing any fish. I did not even see a bluegill. Not even by all the docks.

Took the wife out today before it started raining. I was surprised at home many boats were out on a thursday morning, around 10. Wanted to get her some panfish, but we could only come up with 1 keeper... my first time fishing on the lake. I did catch 1 18 inch bass and 4 "hammer handles". We were using a bobber and worm to bluegills, we did see some older gentlemen fishing the reeds and they were catching them left and right, it didn't look like they were using bobbers. Any ideas of what they were using? Maybe try that. Hangloose

How many young fish. Do all those Cranes eat that land on Partridge lake and White lake and many other lakes around the State. Those Birds eat way to many young fish. I am 54 and I never seen so many of them. But some guys catch too many limits in a year. So what. As long as the do not go to waste. 25 is a good limit.

Does anyone know of any vacation rentals on the lake? There were at least 2 a few years ago that I have rented but can't find them online anymore? If anyone is renting for a fishing vacation please let me know. I'd love to come back for some bass and pike.

Fished for the opener. Weeds are nice and green. Hope the lake gets choked off of weeds so the fish don't get as much pressure. People complain about the weeds but its mostly cabbage, the best cover a fish can get is from cabbage not to mention the oxygen it pumps the lake full of. We only had 6 pike and two 18 inch bass. People take so many blue gills out and don't understand what catch and release is. My dad doesn't even let me keep fish out here, some idiot can take my limit. I will have the fun of catching and releasing! Goodluck

Could I get a water temperature so I can start planning a trip? Has anyone been fishing lately?

Went out bow fishing this past weekend and saw a lot of bass and northern, mostly on the smaller side but a few that were pretty decent. Also saw a lot of nice sized bluegill and one walleye. The fish seem to be pretty scattered.

Hi. I'm new to Wisconsin (Appleton area) and just recently acquired my Dad's extremely wide canoe. Could anyone reply or message me (new to this board as well, trying to find lake info in Wi rather than MN) if this would be a good lake for just going out for a pleasant day paddling? And maybe some light panfish catch and release? Possibly having a 3 and 5 year old with me in the future, but for this weekend (May 2nd or 3rd) just the girl. May troll a rap or spoon off the back and see if any entertaining action from a Northern breaks up the day.

Also, if anyone knows of a good lake to take a canoe nearer Appleton a message would be much appreciated. Lake Winnebago is a bit intimidating with the size, and I'd rather put in and take out at the same spot as opposed to organizing two cars for a little down the river trip.

Thanks guys

There is a small "dam" on the east side where the creek exits the lake. The water is very clear and lots of big carp. I posted about this a year ago. Look back a few pages and the details of the weather and such should be there. Shoot all you can ! The average gill size is down from years ago. That said I think a lot of people wouldn't believe a 10" gill unless they held it in their own hands with their own ruler. My younger brother was kinda bummed last year after I convinced him the throw back a bluegill that was 12.25". Caught it in the channel from the weed harvest going out from the point on the south shore. He still gives me crap about that. Anyway I hope we can get fishing and some reports soon. I got the ok to fish from the doctor so I will be up this next Tuesday. Reports to follow!
