that all she wrote, oh & game wardens were out got checked,

all you boater that use Galecke landing Beware! major change June 1st Time to PAY!

Boaters at Galecke and DuBay parks will now have to pay a fee to utilize the boat launches there.

The fee — $5 per day or $25 per season — goes into effect June 1. Seasonal passes are available to out-of-county residents for $35. Season passes are good for either park.

The new fee was approved last month by the Portage County Park Commission. Revenue generated from the boat launch fee will be used for future boat launch improvements, according to County Parks Director Gary Speckmann.

“There is no fee for other county park boat landings,” Speckmann wrote in an email to the media.

For more information contact the Portage County Parks Department at (715) 346-1433.

Stay closer to Stevens point if you want to fish this stretch. Isn't Burhops by Lodi/Okee?

Put the boat in yesterday at west river and drove up to the point dam. Fished south of the train bridge with one 12 inch walleye to show for it. A few people on shore fishing saw one catfish caught.

Does anyone know of any good backwaters in the Stevens point area to try for crappie? Shore spots preferably because I don't have a boat. Thanks in advance

I have had similar experiences as those that have already posted. One day in early April this year a buddy and I fished below Dubay dam from shore. I fished a jig and plastic while he fished a jig and minnow. I had 9 fish total, 4 legals and one slot 26.5", while he had 13 fish, but only 1 legal.

Some good information being given. A guy I worked with once told me that he used a jig, twister tail and minnow all the time during the spring and got his limit many times. I tried it and I started to get more legals. I probably should use bigger plastics. May try that next time out.

I'd agree, there are some days on the river where every fish is legal. Sat was almost one of those days. 7 eyes total, three legal, and one slot. Legals came trolling cranks, then switched to jigging after the bite died down. Larger baits do keep the small ones away, unless you like to catch 14 inchers all day.

Ok depends on how many fish you caught that day. By your post saying that you had steady action, I'm assuming you caught 20+ fish all over 15 which is highly unlikely. Yeah if you went out and caught 5 or 6 walleyes and they were all over 15, that'd be more realistic. I've had days like that. This year, probly caught over 100 walleyes with 4 keepers and 2 slot fish. Those 4 keepers and 2 slot fish all came in the same day though.
