Out On "The Rock" Thursday morning with 2 guys from Madison Wisconsin. We jumped around a couple spots before we started marking active fish. Fishing on Thursday was on the slow side. We managed to get 1 perch few nice crappies and some short walleyes. Wind,snow and sleet maid it brutal to fish.

Friday I fished with 3 guys from Wisconsin and 2 from Illinois. Cold start to the morning. Truck said -5 below when we hit the ice. We caught a bunch of short walleyes and a few crappies.

Saturday I Fished with 8 guys from the Milwaukee area. Finally we had sunshine,Warmer temps and light winds. Fishing was good. We caught a bunch of crappies, 5 big gills, 1 pike. 1 cat and a lot of walleyes.

Some days the jigging bite is good. Other days the minnow bite is good on tip-downs and tip-ups. We have been running med walleyes shinners for the walleyes on tip-ups. Tip-downs we have been running rosies.

Jigging we have been catching most of our fish on slender spoons loaded up with spikes or waxies. Few fish on smaller jigs.

Anyone looking to book a trip? i have a few openings for feb/mar Big Smile Big Smile

Good luck,Be safe Smile

been a busy week on the ice again! been fishing castle rock and a section of the lemonwier just a few minutes down the road from castle rock. there have been good days and slow days as well. tip downs with rosies or crappie minnows with gold and a shot or size 12 treble and a shot have been the top producers this week. the fish have been fairly negative with all these changing weather patterns lately. the ones we have caught jigging have mostly been on tungsten and a few on slender spoons. forage minnows havent done as well this week. the slender spoons have a slower lazier flutter to them than the forage minnows and with the fish being a little slow lately they have preferred the slow flutter. weve been fishing 8-20 fow searching for the most active fish. the fishing will get better and better heading into february and hopefully the ice will continue to hold up. we have a couple openings this week so give us a call!

CoreyButch, That was me in the Eskimo with the quad on Wednesday. I was hoping you would stop by for a chat and beverage. That is a hit or miss spot on that drop off. I know of brush piles and trees a bit north of there that I found in summer but did not mark coordinates. That stretch this year has only produced small walleyes and a lot of curious fish who only like to look. I will be moving to open water once the draw down happens in February, those flats get exposed and damage the auger blades if not careful. Going back up soon, I have a house down the street from there. Send me a pm and maybe we can discuss lake strategy and what we experience. Enjoy the warm weather and be safe. LL

Hey Battalion38, was that you with the red Eskimo and the quad North of Carlson's? If so sorry about the drive around Wednesday. Wasn't sure if you were right on the brush piles I was looking for or not. I was in the Blue GMC with the topper. Any luck there if that was you???) I do good there in open water.

Out on "The Rock" Friday for a couple hours with Paul and Sean. Had a lot of "shorties", and one crappie. Had a lot of fish on the flasher but no takers. Maybe today will be better if the sun comes out. The water in Buckhorn Bay is a little foggy so sunshine will help.

Keep a tight line!!!

Fished last 3 days off Carlsons in river channel. Small walleyes and a bunch of curious red lines. Confirming 5 or so inches of snow on lake, light snow, tires still spinning on Quad. Many trucks drove out from Carlsons beach area and headed west. Wind has blown allot of snow around and almost took my ice shelter down the lake. Hope this helps. Stay smart...

Petenwell and Castle Rock Flowages Begin Annual Drawdowns in Advance of Spring Runoff

Necedah, Wis. – Wisconsin River Power Company (WRPC) will begin drawing down the Petenwell and Castle Rock flowages on the Wisconsin River starting in February to prepare for the spring runoff of melting snow in Northern Wisconsin. Drawdowns will be gradual and minimized as much as possible. Drawdown levels up to (5.5) five and one half feet at Petenwell and (6.5) six and one half feet at Castle Rock flowages could occur if predictions from the National Weather Service indicate a need to.

The Castle Rock reservoir drawdown will begin on February 1, 2016 and the Petenwell reservoir drawdown will begin February 10, 2016. Both drawdowns are anticipated to be completed sometime in March 2016 when the snow melt typically begins to refill the reservoirs.

WRPC urges recreational enthusiasts to beware of the dangers of shifting and unstable ice due to any type of flowage drawdowns.

Current river flow and reservoir elevations can be found on the WRPC Web site: www.wisconsinriverpower.com for up-to-date information.

Keep a tight line!!!

How much snow is on the ice and are trucks still able to travel through the snow? Thanks for your response, I appreciate it and good luck fishing. Big Smile
