Go as far west as you can, troll east until you catch fish and then circle on them or run back and set back in.  Pearl sides with purple top have been hot, 20-25-30 feet back.

No report but a request for a staring point on Poygan. It has been a lean year for me thus far. Thanks for any info anyone would like to share. PM me.

Saturday, you could see about 18" down. Sunday after high winds & rain, you could see about 6" down at most.

Out today from 11 to 2 with the same great results with the same setup and same spot, just with bigger waves. Biggest was 19". Putting the boat on the trailer was the most exciting part of the day. I used the County landing on the south side with the waves and wind quartering in at it. Live and learn.

Anyone trying for perch or crappies? I'd like to take the kids out next weekend and find some.

Fishing report! 

Had an amazing two days of trolling! Had a limit each day but Friday was definitely better since we had more wind. Trolling motor batteries took a dump so could only go 2.4 2.6 MPH with the big motor with the wind and 2 MPH into the wind. I would pull cranks at 2.2 or 2.3. Cousin went wed and Thur and said once you find the school switch to harnesses and catch bigger fish around 20 inches. Hot colors were black gold, purple tiger and some custom #5 flicker shads 20 feet back when we get under 5.5 fow and 28 feet back everywhere else. Salmos worked today but not yesterday only color that worked was yellow dace at 18, 25 and 30 feet back. As long as your running 5 to 6 feet down. If you get goats raise baits up if you get a lot of whites drop your baits down. Flickers at 28 feet back worked the best.

Dogbyte-

Since Poygan is a shallow lake, long lining doesn't work as well as using planer boards to get your baits away from the boat. Put some #5 Flickers or Shad Raps back 20-30' to start with, and you'll be on your way to catching fish on this lake. Troll from 1.5-2.3 MPH and vary your leads and colors until you find a combo that works. Good luck next time out!
