Late report fished mon from 10am till 2pm I was solo and started with the c-rig and fathead in the 23 to 35ft had three pickups no hookups after two moves I went to bobber and minnow in 7 to 12 ft caught a few gills and a couple crappie went back to c-rig in 16 to 22 ft. all perch. Went back out and trolled on Monday night from 11pm till 3am I was solo and it was wild as the steam and fog I followed my map to know where I was and when I was trolling it was in 8 to 16 ft with nothing hitting. Went back at it Tuesday night from 11pm till 2am the waves were rolling and we stuck it out till the floor of the boat was all ice. While this cold has me wanting ice setting up the booth at the ice show got me going come on down lake linkers and say hello. I am at booth 123 and will be talking ice.

Started at noon and I am glad there was someone as goofy as me. We started with c-rig with fathead in the 26 to 36 ft did not mark as many and fished two areas with no bites at third spot I hooked up and landed a nice smallmouth after a pic and release we started drift over and Jeff hooked up had her on but she shook him off. We did a redrift and nothing so off we go switching to the bobber and little fathead in 12ft and we found a couple of crappie before dark. Thanks Jeff it was one heck of a day and I had a blast look forward to seeing you for some trout.

When I hit the lake on sat there was a small tournament so when I went out I fished plastics from 7am till 10:30am I started deep 20 to 40 feet with drop shot and I missed one (false hope) then I moved and switched to the c-rig and tube same depth nope went to the texas rig and went into 10 to 18 ft had one tap went back to drop shot and moved twice took my cold hands and feet home to return soon. Getting back to the lake at 2pm and fishing till 5pm we had to get on it with three guys we had the drop shot, c-rig and I'm not sure what to call it well anyway we were in 14 to 22 ft catching perch mostly small move out and I catch a 15 inch largemouth then nothing. We take a ride and fish two spots but no bites move in get bobbers and find the gills and crappie in 8 to 14 feet with weeds. I marked fish all day but was to bullheaded to switch to live bait. Way to go guys what a great day on those awesome smallmouth and to the night trollers be safe and rockem the best is coming. Will be up at ice fishing show this weekend booth 123

Out today chasing Smallies again. Kind of bittersweet for sure. I would imagine it's our last trip of the year looking at the extended forecast. It's ok I guess, if you can still be catching meaningful bass in December you're doing alright. And of course today was pretty darn good. Carolina rig and large fatheads, no messing with anything larger today. The fish were in 25-35 FOW for us today. We tend to favor really steep breaks. Probably had 16 solid fish on, we landed 11. I think 7 were over 19" with two solid 20+". One of our better if not best trips this particular late fall. We saw one other dude doing pretty good as well. Saw nightprowler too, hopefully he'll chime in. Water was 47ish and Williams Bay piers were still in.

Thanks for reports William, I envy you for getting to fish so often.  I look forward to the future when I plan on fishing more than working.

Fished solo today from 11am till 2:30pm started with a few perch to dangle for smallmouth in 18ft with drop shot and little fathead moved in and bobber fished in 8 to12ft plenty of gills a few nice but the hands got cold. Went out and casted c-rig and plastic in 20 to 36 ft. did not mark did not get bit, Moved and switched to the lindy rig and perch on one rod and a c-rig and large fathead on the other after a short drift I started marking and the perch started jumping but the fathead caught the first smallie and I missed 3 more the perch would get jumpy but no hits. I found fish in 23 to 40 foot but getting them to bite was tough finished day with more gills. The weather is going to drop next week the bite will be on day and night. The pier is still in.
