FISHING REPORT
8/3/15 12:18 AM CST
The river is getting really low in some places. There's was alot of getting out and dragging the boat around for me today. Took a guy out who doesn't get a chance to get out much other than shore fishing. Picked a few pike on dive and rise baits, all right around the 30in mark and also two lmb caught on one of my custom spinners I threw together before heading out, 15 in and real healthy 18in. Plenty of trailers in the boat landing but never had a boat around us while fishing which is how I like it. There was one real young kid on a wave runner just up from the landing who looked to be no more than 12 years old. He flew by us within 20 feet of the boat and turned around and was even closer the second time so I gave him a holler and motioned to slow down and move out, you could tell he had no idea why I was trying to tell him and he turned around and floored it back down river. I hope he was put with his parents somewhere and I actually was looking for them on my way to fish so that I could ask them if he even should be on that wave runner or if he's had any boater safety classes or training. That kid had no business being on that thing I'll say that much. I just hope when he got back to his parents they took the keys from him.

I've watched guys set up just for carp fishing off shore, these guys have always been fishing at night though. They have huge bait casting reels, radio alarms and the while nine yards. I bbelieve they use corn for bait or something similar. They are always fishing strictly for carp and big carp too. There's nights out there where it's calm and you can just tell there are hundreds of carp everywhere. I think I would much rather fish for them than drive around in a boat with a loud generators and blinding everyone one the shoreline. For people interested in fishing them, on alot of nights they are everywhere.

This was my biggest from last summer. I caught a 25-30 lb. Flathead a couple days before and I can't say I could tell the difference between the two, as far as fighting strength goes.

I've yet to try this, but in the evenings at stoners point the carp gather and munch on the insects and debris that collects on the surface. At some point I'm gonna take a fixed bobber and stick a bug on a hook about 2 inches below it, and toss it in the debris to see if I cant get one to bite.

Just set your filter to fish reports only. One click at the top of the page.

I agree a positive fishing report is always nice to see, but a constructive conversation about keeping our fishers healthy is needed once in awhile. I see you've only posted 18 times since 2011 so doesn't look like you contribute to much yourself for fishing report's.

I thought this page was for actual fishing reports not constant bickering about regs and poaching. If you want to discuss regs I suggest you go to the DNR spring hearings and voice your opinions there. Bickering like this is why I don't get the Wisconsin outdoor news anymore! Go fish legally and report what you caught or didn't catch and stop at the bar on the way home if you want to complain!

I lived on Tipperary just down from the Grade. Saw poaching often. I would call them out on it when I could. Over limits, keeping small pike, or slot walleye - happened a lot.

I've fished the bridges and dam now for a long time and you would be amazed at how many people claim to not know the regs and are always trying to keep illegal fish. I've watched people run fish to their cars, bury them and get caught by the dnr. You name it I've seen it. Just think of how many days that I'm not out there to see all that. Big saw is probably not far off. I imagine this happens just about everywhere though.

Had a home in Okee for 11 years on Demnyk rd about a mile from what was then the Okee snack bar. And as far as facts on poaching, just go on line and google it for yourself. I have nothing to gain by fabricating.

I'd like to know the FACTUAL source for your poaching data.

Trolled this morning by myself, boy could have used the help. Caught about 15 "lost track" maybe more. Early was small, then about 9:30 the nicer ones bit. Biggest was a little over 22.Had a triple todaySmile Some White bass and Crappie mixed in. Kept 1 Sauger and some Crappie. Threw a couple eaters back because of the crappies. Clown was the best color again. Funny been in my tackle box for years and never used them till the grandson wanted it on. 12 to 15 ft. trolling @2.5mph. Good luck to you all.

bigsaw, you are lumping a lot of info into one thread, and it just got easier with online registration for deer etc......

the dinks aren't hurting the system, the slot is, as it stands, it should allow for the smaller fish to be caught...and the bigger fish.

the only reason I got peeved is because a few down there want to lower the panfish limit....so what are you gonna have then? overpopulated panfish, lower walleye....whatever

and btw, I don't believe you live there....so you are going by hearsay ???
