Went cat fishing at Bukholt Park in Stevens Point on Wednesday night. We caught 7 channel catfish. We kept 3 to eat. Three keepers were 6 to 8 lbs. Let the other fish go they were a little smaller 3 to 4 lbs. Caught on fresh cut bait and sonny's dip bait. Best bite is right at dark.

On river, South of Stevens Point between dams between 9pm-11pm. Landed 4 (18"-20")Channel Cats & 2 got away - with swivel/hook etc. Bobber fishing with minnows on #6 snells - no dip etc.

Not sure what the first one that got away was but it put up 2-4 times ++ the fight anything else did. It got down behind a partially exposed rock and before I could get downstream to pull it back out of the 'hole', the fish had rubbed my line back and forth on the edge of the rock enough to cut the line. Almost like it had done that a few times before. Great fight though on a med-light wt. rod with 20 lb test spiderwire, no leader.

Couple of guys fishing upstream of me were catch & release C-Cats faster then I could keep track. Not sure what they were using but they had a minnow bucket with them also. Could have been anything in there though.

More action in two hours then we saw all morning-miday 5-6 hrs ++ down on the Pete. Them Channel cats are fun fish to catch!!! Left with a big grin.

Was out fishing at bukholt park for cat fish last night 5pm to dark. Managed to cstch 4 cHannel cat fish and a small walleye. Kept 2 fish that were 5 and 6 pounds. Those seem to be the best eating size to us. Caught all the fish on cut bait.

We buy all our live bait at northern tackle next to kwik trip on Maria Ave. Very nice guy always has a little info for you. We found that sonny's dip bait is the best out of all the dip bait sold at fleet farm. We have tried it all. Rotten shad is the best flavor.

@ crawdaddy - too true! We thought it would get better when they added on to the building, but now they just have room for more empty spaces where products would go. Next time I head over to the river to fish cats I'll stop in the SS FF to see if they have any in stock. Thanks for the help!

Waupaca Fleet is not as well stocked in things as Point. It is better after the remodel though.

Northern bait on Maria near pacelli high school. Gollons on old wausau has 24 hour self service. Can get walleyes in low light hours. Small jigs and worms or waxies for panfish. Had 2 OK evenings casting shallow running cranks for smallmouth in fast water.

Sorry for the non-report!

My dad and I are looking to come to Wisconsin River tomorrow in SP.

From all the recent reports, it sounds like only cats are biting, is this true or can other fish be caught from shore? Looking for bass, walleye, northern, or panfish.

Also, can anyone recommend a good local bait shop for some minnows?

Thanks so much! PM is on if you want to share any tips so we can have a successful day!

Fleet farm bottom shelf in catfish area. There are other dip baits there too. Sonny's looks like peanut butter.

Would anyone be willing to tell me where a person can find Sonny's or the secret 7 dip locally? I've done a bit of looking but no luck yet. Or must it be ordered?

Thanks!!
