Conditions: Cloudy
Slow Slow Slow! Fished Saturday the 29th. Did not see many people catching. We caught 2 eyes trolling. One was 14 inch one was 10 inch. Tried to find crappies with no luck. The rain on Friday night into Saturday messed it up. Trying to get back out in September.

Late report from last Wednesday and Thursday.8/26-27. Figured I would post something since not much activity here recently.

Went looking for crappies, could not really find any schooled biting ones. A stray here and there. White bass biting a bit when you get your bait moving fast enough. Of course lots of sheepshead. A stray shortie walleye or sauger here and there. Overall pretty slow for me,but still enjoyable, pleasant days on Lake Wisconsin. Some areas have very heavy algae. Surface temps high 60s in AM, into 70s by PM.

Boy this is a year I have not contributed to the reports its been a tough one for me I finally had a good week this week with a good B/G catch on Monday so first fry up this week. Tuesday showed how night and day the fishing can be on the lake. AM I got 32 Smallies and all but 5 where great fish. Consistently nice size. Also picked up some average fish at two mayfly hatches again on the lake. Lost a huge fish that broke my line then had the gull to jump in front of the boat and shake the plug out and land by the boat, as to tell Not today pal Not ever." this is the second time this has happened to me with a large Smallie. Most caught on hard baits. Color did not matter some on a pumpkin color plastic jig and Taper. Went back that Evening which was perfect and got 3 B/G and NOT ONE Bass in ll the same areas. Fish are beginning to feed on minnows again. Few of the ones I got. Actually took 12 pictures of nice fish that day.

I haven't seen a Walleye for so long I might have to look at a picture to see what they are. Good Luck and stay safe don't need any more deaths on the lake.

roy2422 Fitz's in Okee, also there is a place in Sunset Bay ( I think it is Bayside). I can recommend those two as I have eaten there. Good food and reasonable prices.

We are going up and camping near by this weekend. I have a 20' skiboat. Looking to take it out sat night for a little supper cruise on Lake Wisconsin. Is there any nice places with boat docks to eat? Also, any tricky areas to watch for? We will not be flying around just on a slow cruise but also would not like to get hung up somewhere. Thanks in advance.

Late report for Sunday, 8/2. Water temp 77.5-78.5 in main lake body. Fishing 6AM-10AM downriver from MV, trolling cranks. Just 5 fish caught; 26" Eye on clown colored DDHJ Rapala, 18" Sauger, 3 short. Other than clown, purple/red hues seemed to work best; tried bunches of colors. All fish swimming (no pics-get em back in the water ASAP)

Haven't been out much this year, so it was great to spend some time on the water.

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.
