Late report from Tuesday.

Kevin from Wautoma was spending a few days on "The Rock with family and friends and booked a morning trip for his son Cody, along with Mary Jane, Austin, and Alexy. We started working jigs and dead rods along channel edges in timber, but the bite was really slow. We moved to a 10-12 foot area and dabbled some light rods with 1/32 ounce jigs and red worms. Blue gills and crappies were active there. Finished with some nice sized of both.

Fished Early Tuesday morning with a great father and son team who book a morning guide trip with me on Castle Rock.

Guys are up for a few days staying at "Northern Bay" for a little family vacation. I launched the boat at 6 am and picked the guys up from the doc at 6:15. water was like glass for just about the entire trip!

We started the morning trolling cranks on the east side in  12 to 15 f.o.w. Mid morning we jumped over to the Buckhorn side and trolled in few spots in 12 to 18 f.o.w.. Last hour we jigged a few spots, 1/8 oz weedless jig tipped with half crawler, worked the best.

Guys ended the day with a few short Walleyes, keepers, 1 Crappie,1 Perch, 1 cat, 1 Pike and Sheepshead, everything went back to fight another day!

Good luck be, be safe!

Ralf from central Iowa, booked a half day guide trip Monday morning, for 3 people with me out on Castle Rock!

We launched the boat from the Buckhorn Bridge launch at 6 am, water temp was 76.7 and by the time we left the lake the water temp was just under 80, lake was like glass the entire trip very little wind.

Monday morning we trolled cranks and boards in 12 to 17 f.o.w. 1.9 to 2.1 worked the best for us.  Mid morning we jigged a few spots boating fish in every spot we fished! Guys ended the day with 3 "Keepers" 1 slot, bunch of short walleyes,1, crappie, everything went back to fight another day.

Monday afternoon trip with Tom and his wife. Tom just wanted to catch a few Panfish/Walleyes and have a good time since they are up at there cabin enjoying a few days off before heading back to the grind. I have fished with Tom and his wife a few times in the past!

Monday afternoon we pitched weedless jigs in heavy wood cover and jigged the main river channel, Half crawler worked the best for Walleyes/Smallies, Panfish "Big Red" worms worked the best .

Guys took home a few nice gills/crappies for dinner, everything else went back to fight another day!

Anyone looking to book a guide trip, I have August-24th,25th,26,28th,30th and 31st still open.

Good luck,be safe!

Cranks run at 2.2 to 2.8 mph, harness at 1.2 to 1.5 works good.

Lake king, I agree with Bob. I grew up on the rock fishing it weekly for 10+ yrs. I’ve lived on Bago for less than a year and can tell you that fish size is much better here. 12-14in crappie are the norm eyes consistently have more size to them as well. I mean if those bodies of water have such great fish as you say why did they move the MWC tourney to Bago and not the Rock or Pete. It’s fine to be loyal to a body of water and I’m sure there are good fish there but not in numbers like bago. Every guide post I’ve read is consistent with “shorties” read the bago guides they max out regularly.

No the muskies would not be considered trophies, they need to be 50" and only one fish.

if one would catch a 40 inch plus musky every 100 casts would it be called a trophy fish?

Blkhwkbob, you don’t spend enough time or fish the right areas then.  Petenewell, Castlerock, and Lake Wisconsin are all great waters for trophy fish.  They have a bunch of big eyes and a many huge Muskies swimming.  Not nearly as easy a trolling a mud flat like the Lower bay of GreenBay.  But there are plenty there.  Put your time in and you’ll succeed.

To the guy talking about the Wisconsin River basin fishing maybe you should spend some time on Petenwell. Other than Green Bay you will be hard pressed to find better and bigger walleyes anywhere in the state. I don’t fish for Muskie but have caught some “trophies” while targeting walleye. The rest of the Wisconsin River may not be what would be expected but Petenwell is definitely right up there with the best. I would spend my time learning on that huge body of water and you won’t be disappointed. Good luck and tight lines
