I agree and I live on the lake and from Fri. night to Monday morning my boat stays in the hoist.  Too many inconsiderate boaters and jet skier's on the weekends and even though I'm 290Lbs I must be invisible since they come so close.  So I will give you visitors the weekends

A lot of learning today.  New to me boat last year, new trolling motor and electronics this spring.  Now learning how to run boards.  Caught two shorts (10-14") didn't measure.  Marked fish in some deeper water 14-18' but only got the tattle flags to drop in less that 10'.  A lot of water out there and marked some structure for later dates.  Would love to get to know this lake, as its about an hour away.

Swede....

I am fortunate to be retired and can come up during the week when it's quieter,so that's what I would recommend also,.... to those that can.

..But don't let people talk you out of it. Despite a holiday weekend, go for it. Yes the lake will be busy, usually in the afternoon. If can get out early, you should be able to get some hours in. Also there are plenty places to fish out of the main traffic lanes. If it were me, I would just go !  Your biggest challenge will be getting out early enough to get a parking space at whatever boat launch you are using.    If you can make the effort, would likely be be worth it.

Thanks for the replies.  I think I'll leave the boat in the garage and bring the golf clubs........though tying into some crappies would be a blast for the kids.  I just hate fighting the waves, or having my lines run over by jetskiers wanting me to watch them.

I was out with my son's  Friday through Monday  and were targeting walleye with not much luck  got a couple legals  and maybe 20-25  small ones I mean real small maybe 5-6"  walleye,  what we did catch were  at least  15-20  nice sized crappie  each day  while jigging  with a 1/4 oz jighead and a 3" ring worm i don't keep crappie so an exact count I don't know  but it was at least 15 a day  and we weren't trying for them  most of the fish were caught  in 8-10' on the steep drop off 


What I do have to note is that I haven't caught 1 single sheep head  this year  and Ive been out at least once a week since early  April  and usually by this time of the year I have caught at least 50 of them Im not complaining though  just making the note

Anyone getting anything out here or having any luck? I have been out a couple times and it has been really slow and small fish. Still too many takers on the lake and very few CPR. The crappie population and size is about at an all time worst over the last ten years. Lets be a little less greedy and let more fish go so we have a sustainable fishery for future generations!

I fish lake wiscinsin several days each week from April-November, and run anywhere from past the I-90 bridge to down to the sauk dam. I fish some weekends too, usually mornings or late afternoon/evenings. Boat traffic is bad enough on a regular weekend IMHO. I fished one time on a holdiday weekend, fishing was great, but you couldn't pay me enough to put my boat in the water there on a holiday weekend ever again.....just my opinion though.

Main lake may get a little rough, but down towards the river should be less traffic.
