Got on at 6:00 a.m. right after the big storm.  Didn't seem to bother the LMB's.  Caught a dozen in about 4 hours.  One fatty the rest 15-18".  All hits pretty aggressive. Half on drop shots and half on the Senko. Pumpkin and dark brown colors were working.   Stayed in 8-16'.  Swung out to 20-25' to look for smallies, nada. Tried top water, also nada.  Nothing on lip less cranks either.... Tight lines

Fished with Kevin, and Cody last night, started at 5, out front of the pillars, with a few bass boated by all of us, just average size. Fishing slowed, so we started a trolling pass, over by maytag. A few average bass came to boat, but decided to move to the north shore, where we picked up a few smallies, and largies, Kevin boated a 3lb lm bass, for big fish of the night. Cody had school today, so we finished up early around 11:50 pm. 13 total bass, mostly caught by Kevin and Cody, as I only bagged 2. Good luck, good fishing, Woody!

Used to work in Law Enforcement in the 90's had same thing happen to us numerous times spoke complained  to DNR they did two weekends wrote numerous violations all seemed good. Then unofficial word/rumor was they received orders from Madison to not do it again so here we are. Maybe a call to Walker would do it Ha Ha!!!!!

First time out here.  Intimidating lake to fish due to size and depth.  Figured I'd try to find some Bass around weeds.  Didn't find many weeds in Williams Bay out from launch.  Found some weeds in Trinke's so decided to fish there.  Few bass on plastics.  Biggest about 16.  Can anyone help with where the best weeds are out there?  And yes, the wakesurfers were out last night.

Operating a vessel in a manner that creates hazardous wave or

wake conditions while approaching or passing another vessel 

Thats right from the DNR handbook you would think local law enforcement would have some Idea this is not OK 

The law is clear who can we get to enforce it ?????  Clearly Wake surfing is not legal 75 feet from my boat or running a 30ft boat stepped but not on plane right pas me 100 ft away   are the laws just for fishermen or dose everyone have to obey them  Take a video with your phone and get the WS # in it email to the warden and they will get a citation If the water patrol and local police will NOT do there JOBS the DNR will

Was at it at 5am till 10:30am with a three man crew and we stayed on the drop shot and fished the 12ft. in and out with great results as the largemouth were eating and smallmouth while not a numerous were very large (ok most of them) and the rock bass and seeds were keeping us jumping. The key was to keep moving and work the bait and set when you feel weight. The sunrise was way awesome. Was back at 3pm till 8pm and we stayed in 16 to 26ft and did the c-rig for me and drop shot in back the largemouth came on drop shot and one big smallmouth along with rock bass and the c-rig caught the smallmouth when the wind was blowing for a good drift but struggled when casting and retrieving. It was a tough eve with a very good angler but we keep moving and found one or two in many places. To learn is to get better and the guys today are all better tonight thank you.

Started Tuesday morning at 5am till 10:00am it was one on one as we went after smallmouth and today was a day where I learned and taught as the gentleman I was with had twice my skills and we started with the drop shot and c-rig and the dropshot won out. We bounced around and fished 13ft. to 26ft. with one spot holding them on the shallow side and other spots they were on the deep side but the males are showing up 2.5lbs and long but we did find a few fat feed up females. I was back at 4pm and fished till 8:30pm with a grandfather, son and son we stuck to the dropshot and had boat in 12ft. casting in and out and behind boat with largemouth casting in smallmouth casting out and both with a giant bullhead behind boat oh ya rock bass all around boat. we also had a muskie follow in a little bass. we found that a slow drag and stop did the trick. Thanks guys what a day.
