MOON PHASE
New Moon

Fished this past week out on "The rock"

Trolling bite has been good for the first couple hours in the morning, Best for us is from 6 am till around 9 am and shuts right down from there! With the warmer water temps, We have been catching more fish deep in 15 to 20 f.o.w. a lot of the fish are suspended around 16 to 18 feet.

"Live bait" bite has been good mid day throughout the afternoon and in the evening. We have been using bottom bouncers and slow death rigs tipped with half crawler, Worked up and down the break in 16 to 20 f.o.w We also have been jigging weedless jigs tipped with half crawler or leeches, Crawler working the best.

I still have a these dates open for July-26th,27th,29th,30th and 31st

Good luck,be safe!

Find the channel and work the edges. Timber is your friend. Drift anywhere with slip bobbers and bait on the buckhorn side and you'll catch fish. Get some minnows and leeches.

I understand out is a broad question but never having been on the lake was looking for any advice at all. Thanks!

Bob and Bob from Racine booked a morning trip on "The Rock for today. they have fished the lake for many years with mixed results, so they wanted to learn some new locations and some different presentations to use. Bob has a Humminbird locator with gps installed, but he does not have a map chip for it. By the end of the trip he realized how invaluable a Lake Master chip can be in locating channel edges and cover. We jigged and soaked dead rods almost the entire trip, and trolled for a shot time to end the morning before the rain started. We ended with 1 "keeper", 2 big crappies, a catfish, and a bunch of "shorties".  

Keep a tight line!!!

Jerry  27th thru the 30th are still available.

Carrie,

Good advice from Fishez2. But a few extra thoughts.

Probably too late for this weekend, but consider a guide.

Get a lake map, I have a Fishing Hotspots but other ones are good too.

My story - this is my 1st year fishing the Rock in at least 40 years. 1st trip, we had a plan based on the map, but we noticed a fleet of boats fishing, we joined in working around the outside.  We figured out what was working and made a short move away from them, and ended with 3 in the slot and many shorts.  Best day in Wisconsin in years. 2 more trips and we caught fish, but not in the same numbers.

If I went today, I would pick some spots on the map around the point of the Buckhorn up to the railroad bridge to try.  If you are not catching fish, move.

Good luck,

Fritz

CarrieH, that is a large question given all of the conditions that may exist. I am not trying to be a smarty pants but read the posts for several pages.

My husband and I are coming for the weekend from La Crosse.  We would like to do some fishing.  We are mainly looking for pan fish, crappies, walleyes. We have never been on the lake, so any help in where to go would be helpful.

Thanks!

Monday Ray and I had our 3rd day 8 hour day with with the group from West Bend, but we were down to 4 people. We fished "The Rock" this time for a little change. Pete, and Bill were with Ray, and Paul and his son Beau were in my boat. We started jigging and soaking dead rods in 17-18 fow with minnows and crawlers, but they did not want much to do with the worms. The bite was very fast with fish on both rods many times, I almost lost a jig rod while handling the dead rod with a fish on. We boated 3 "keepers", 2 catfish,, and more "shorties" than you could shake a rod tip at. Ray's group had 1 slot fish and a bunch of "shorties" as well. Our boat ran out of minnows so we went back in by Buckhorn and set up trolling, and Ray set up on the main lake in front of Dellwood to troll the main lake. They boated 2 "keepers", 2 more in the slot, and 2 white bass. We only added 1 crappie to the live well and had some more shorts. The trolling bite was really slow, to say the least. Back on "Pete" for Tuesday. 

Keep a tight Line!!!
