Out today on the lake for a few hours. Mostly casting with a few slip bobbers out. Worked a lot of edges. Only a few snakes for northerns, and one nice catfish. Few rock bass and perch in between, overall pretty slow.

Maybe it was a little better over there, as of what i have seen the water is digusting.

Launched the boat out of Warner. Water was pretty clear there.

I don't know where you were seeing down 6 ft of water. The water clarity i have seen has been pretty brutal. Barely seeing ground in 2 ft of water.

Mutiple slip bobbers in about 5 feet of water using plain hooks and night crawlers. As simple as it sounds we are bringing in about 3 the size of the fish in the last picture a trip. Not intentionally even targeting them.

I have not been out for a while. What is water quality/clarity like? Would also be interested in quality/clarity on Monona.

Was out for a few hours yesterday. About a dozen 10-15 inch smallmouth caught on bobbers near picnic point. Moved over to second point and caught a few more cats. Relatively quiet on the lake yesterday. Anyone been catching any pike lately? Only have caught 4 this year, looking to find more.

The Fish Has No Boundaries (FHNB) event is July 11-12, 2015 at Gov. Nelson State Park and we are in need of a few fish cleaners for the participants fish that are brought in. We need a few (3-4) on Sat. from about noon to 5 and followed by our annual fish fry that is done by Yahara Fishing Club and is excellent. Most of the fish cleaned from the event are fried that evening as part of the meal. We also need 3-4 fish cleaners on Sunday from about 10-2 which is also followed by a free meal for all volunteers.

Please contact the FHNB website at http://www.fhnbinc.org/ or email Todd at tts@inspeech.com.

This is a very worthwhile event that takes people with disabilities from all ages out for a day fishing trip with volunteers from FHNB.

Late report from Saturday the 27th. Went out with a few buddies looking for crappie. Found some but not lots...fish were in the 9-11" range and most came on minnows, some on plastics. Turned into a nice night once all the boat traffic cleared out.

Whereabouts in Watertown? I was just over there for the Cash for Carp event at Riverside park. Plenty of Carp around, though few of those caught were very large. I've been thinking about a day trip some weekend to fish there at Riverside. I'd be happy to dispose of the carp as long as I knew it was legal. Are the barrels marked as 'Carp Disposal' or something like that?

Just got me a 14.7 pounder on Waubesa. Since the county expanded the parking lot at babcock that launch area is FAR less productive. Reset my lines on the outside and got a committed hit in under 5 minutes. I guess they're a little more boat shy than I thought they'd be.

If you go to Watertown they have carp barrels along the river to dispose of them. I take my grandkids fishing there for that reason. If there was a place to easily dispose of them at the boat launch: Number 1, a lot more people would fish for them and Number2: there would be far less dead carp floating around.

Carp are fun to catch, but what are you going to do with them? Crying

Was out yesterday bouncing around to keep away from idiots. Nope, got onto a decent perch and crappie bite and some powerboat has to drive over our slip bobbers and where we were casting. Intentionally done and waved at us all the while. On a side note guys take pics and vids of illegal actions as these smart phones are great. The pictures and video I took given to sheriff are enough for a citation. He is mailing a wreckless boating ticket to the boat owner!!! 2 thumbs up to Dane county sheriff who took my call. Fishing sucked after that but my day was made at that point. Tried several other spots and got a few gills, goats, whitebass!!
