Just a heads up, the wisconsin river from lake wisconsin to portage is no wake due to high water.  The flow at dells dam as of monday morning is just over 40000 cfs. It will be awhile till the water gets back to normal.

Any tips for bass fishing? Looking for anything from good areas to what baits work best. Lots of experience on the lake, so I know areas, just not for bass. Thanks for any help. Tight lines!

Wallize...I noticed you mentioned the creek survey person was doing a week long creel census.

On my small 3 lake chain up north the dnr person who did creel and fisherman survey was on our system and a few close lakes for 2 years.  I would see him frequently and made a point of stopping by and giving him my report.  At the end of the survey he handed me some copies of the concluded report.  

I was wondering if that one week survey is just a step in a more complete survey over a longer time period.  The survey person up on my system Marty K was super nice and very informative.  I must have giving him info over the 2 years at least 20 different times.  Many times all i could give him was the number of hours fished with no fish to show but that also was important information.   

Have a great day.

I went fishing yesterday at okee bay. Fished in the bay for all reasons related to the wind blowing strong from the north.

Caught one small largemough bass, one sheepshead and one bluegill in the little time I was able to invest. Nightcrawler caught all three fish, I did try plastics but no luck on them.

SV- the small fish are in the lake like your video shows, but the lake really doesn't have quality fish with quantity in the 18-22" range like it used to. The lake is nothing like it used to be. Increased pressure and harvest have really caused a decline on the lake. I do salute you on your C&R though as this lake needs more of that going on. Especially in the spring where I would really like to see a 1 fish bag limit.

I personally have caught a 24" Sauger that was pushing 6lbs a few years ago night fishing. We have also caught some massive crappies to contribute to the conversation. Walleye population is fine. Last fall I made a video trolling  and we absolutely whacked them. You just need to spend some time on the water looking for out of the way spots. I caught some nice fish this weekend on a spot where very few people fish. Crappie fishing this year hasn't been terrible. Same thing, just need to put your time in and find them.   

Good luck for those fishing this weekend. SV

SBJ no I'm sorry we did not weight it. I've been searching for the pics of this fish but I've now been through a couple phones and I'm bad about backing stuff up. I do know there's a couple pics on face book but can't seem to find the post from that day. I know that old saying no pics never happened!

River is currently around 14ft on the portage guage, which is high for this time of year. Will be up to 18+ by Sunday morning. At that level, you will have 38000 cfs of water flowing through your tent. Most of the sandbars will not be visible. I suggest a hotel or a campsite at smokey hollow.

Does anyone have any insight to the condition of the first sandbar up from tipperary?  Some buddies and i are supposed to be braving the crummy weather this weekend to camp and fish.  Tiy.
