First time out this year: Fished Monday and Tuesday 5/23 5/24. 

Monday fished 11AM to 5:30pm  About a dozen shorts,mix of Walleye and Sauger, 1- 17" keeper Sauger, 1- 24" Walleye (released) , couple of Crappies a few Whitebass  and of course plenty sheeps. All came on jig/minnow,jig/crawler. both produced about the same.

Tuesday fished 2pm to 6:30pm. Tried trolling various cranks for a couple hours. (Just flat -lining, no boards ,I don't troll much. ) Not even a bite.Went back to jig and crawler , about half dozen shorts, but boated a bonus 26" Walleye (released of course.)  just before I called it quits for the day.  By late Tuesday ,water temp was right about 70 pretty much everywhere.

Very pleasant couple of days, weather could not have been better. Always love being out on Lake Wisconsin. A few fish just icing on the cake. Back in a couple of weeks.

Fished this past weekend (5/20-5/22) Never tried for walleyes because I knew I was going to be wasting my time. Instead I tried a few things. 1. hammered the crappies in and around docks. 2. Caught some nice bass on wacky worms and fishing for crappies. 3. Caught some 15-20 pound carp on corn and groundbait. I made a video of carp fishing and I hope everybody enjoys this. Good Luck. S.V.

Got out fish quit a few days over the past 6 days. report is lots of small fish. I got a few keepers sauger and walleye. trolling 8 to 14 ft of water covering lots of water. nothing consistent. slip bobber with leeches, nites, and minnows with small colored jig head worked good too. the crappie and whitebass are a mystery. did get a 2 to 3 lb flathead lindy rigging full nite on a channel edge south of the ferry. marking lots of fish in the 16 to 22 fow. getting bit is a second thing. well with the crazies coming out, just try being thoughtful of others. had a guy 10 ft behind my boards the other night then swing around at 3/4 plane to check out what I was doing. be safe out there green princecraft out.

Been pretty slow for me so far this year, the few times I've been out. Plenty of shorts and goats on pretty much anything I put in the water. Was out last this past Monday night. Thought the wind might get something going but no such luck. Ended the outing heading over to the shorty hole and put a few in the boat.

Safe and happy holiday weekend to all. Good Luck!

Fished 5/20 from 8-noon.  Very Hard walleye bite today.  Guessing there was a Tournament or something going on as there were about 25 boats around Tipperary.  Caught 1 keeper Sauger and only a handful of shorts.  Numerous Sheephead and a bonus Northern.  Crawlers out-fished minnows.

Was out the past two days(Tuesday & Wednesday) for a couple hours each time. Caught 2 sheephead, 1 largemouth, 1 smallmouth and 2 sauger (shorts) on Tuesday. Wednesday managed only 3 walleyes, biggest being 14in. 

Things haven't been as productive this year as years past for me. That's okay though because if I'm fishing that means I'm not working. Good luck

I was back in the Grade swamp sunday and only saw 2 carp. Normally they would be there in good numbers this time of the year, but with the cold water temps right now, the carp are still on the main lake side of the grade

Try the back(swamp) side of the grade for your carp fix.

We fished on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday i got one smallie from shore, and another one same size on Sunday.  Both came on a ghost shad jerkbait. Had some minnows on lindy's and got nothing.  Sunday we took the new boat out and had one fish rocket down with my bobber but missed it. had another bite similar in another bay.  Tried rigging in front of our cabin and marked them good in 11-13 fow but couldn't get them to commit. I will hit crappies hard this weekend and should have a video made.  Good luck. S.V.

Sorry, this isn't a report.  Has anybody seen the carp splashing in the bays or sloughs yet?  Hoping to take my son for his first carp shooting experience and I haven't had the time to get out there and check.

Thanks in advance and tight lines.

We were on the water. Jigging and trolling. Also was out Saturday (can we say COLD) It actually snowed for a short time. We fished up from the 39 bridge Saturday. All we caught was 1 catfish, 4 sheepshead, couple small white bass. Crawlers worked better than minnows.

What part of the lake were you fishing? On or off shore?
