Let's see.....fish or deer hunt on opening weekend?? Perhaps both while in the boat. Anyone know if that's legal? Can you shoot from a boat? Like a drive by??? Lol.

Out last week for 1 day. Tried fishing in the shallows with bobbers, not a bite. Finally moved to Indian Bay and fished with half a crawler on the bottom. Caught 5 very nice crappie and 1 huge gill. Wind was blowing hard and we were drifting a little too fast or we may have done better. All of our bites were in 13-15 ft. of water. Best of luck to you fishnfanatic.

Can anyone share any info on the current crappie bite?  Going to make one last trip to the Willow and didn't do well last time out 2 weeks ago.  Marked lots of fish, but couldn't get many bites.  Thanks!

Tuesday began with a light rain and then tapered off. I fished with Greg Naze of Wisconsin Rapids.. We caught 19 walleyes and kept 6.  We drifted a  flat  channel edge with large rocks.. Fathead minnows on jigs was our only presentation. We caught fish on every drift.

Yes indeed Chad, we still love the Willow!  Ran over to Willow Haven to see the Badgers hold tight for the first half, then listened on radio for the disappointing if not wholly unexpected finish.

Water temps started around 61 and dropped to 60 by Sunday.  While I'm certain you have your spots, if you'd like more info from our trip, PM me. We had plenty of fish for a last night fish fry and left a hot crappie bite after boating a double hook-up.

Good going PRJ, good to see you still making the trip. Me and the crew will be crappie fishing Thur. through Sunday this weekend. Hopefully water cools down some this week.

A  couple buddies and I spent a spectacular long weekend camping and fishing on the Willow, arriving Thursday and departing Sunday.  Weather was stunning, clear blue skies and warm during the day, upper 60s, with cold nights and mornings, into the middle 40s.  Just like October should be.

Stable weather, despite the mild NE wind, set up the fish in a repeatable pattern over the 3 days fished.  Jigs and crawlers bounced tight to the river channel, mainly 15-16', produced a mixed bag of walleye and sunfish with a massive 10.5" bluegill thrown in for sport.  Crappies were caught in a shallower drift pattern primarily, though micro-jig fishing buddy would pull an occasional suspended fish out during deeper drifts.  Of course, a giant bullhead was a highlight, my heavy chicken was definitely on the bottom.

Following my rant regarding Heineken drinking slobs on Group Site G3 from August, its only fair that I rave here.

We camped on Site 7, an individual site in the Four Islands area.  It was absolutely impeccable, maybe one twist tie, no cig butts, just perfectly kept and policed after the previous campers.  Kudos to whoever has camped on and cleaned up Site 7, and we endeavored to leave it better than we found it, though the bar was set high.
