I know you asked how to do it without, but unless you're fishing where you can see bottom pretty clearly (2-7 ft or so), fishing anywhere over any kind of deeper water (8+) will be very difficult. Can it be done? Absolutely. People have been doing it for years. But I can tell you, and I speak from experience, that having a flasher (even a base model...or a very old one like Jzzzz mentioned) will exponentially increase your catch. Will it make them bite? Of course not. But knowing instantly how deep you are and more importantly if there are fish below you (and even more importantly where in the water column they are) is one of the greatest advantages a fisherman can have. So, save your $$ and try to get one. Much more important than a camera, at least starting out. Check Craigslist or the trading post on here to start. I got my VX1 3-4 years ago brand new off CL and paid like $225 or so.

Until then, if you insist on fishing deeper water without one, it's going to be a lot of trial and error. Start out near the bottom, and gradually try higher and higher. Then drop it back down and repeat. If you start getting them higher in the column, figure out a way to mark your line so you can get back to the same depth.

Good luck!

unfortunately aside from maybe just tip up fishing off bottom, tip numb 1 get a vexilar, used they can be rather cheap even an old green box will work too, be very hard to locate and catch most fish without a graph.. goodluck

DIEHARDFISHING,

I am leaving from Noffke's landing Saturday morning at 6:10 A.M.

Will be walking out towards the Hole. You are welcome to come along. Me and maybe another guy. I will be the guy with black bibs, grey hood and camo hat, and very anxious look on his face. Bring creepers... We can spread out and then group up if someone finds them.

Hi all, I was wondering if anybody could give me any information on where to catch some walleye once the ice gets thick enough to drive out. I don't have a snowmobile or an atv so going way out onto the mud before the ice gets thick enough isn't really an option for me. I can only seem to get white bass out on the ice so any information for some walleye would be extremely appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Brando79 I checked blackwolf landing today about 30 yards off the point there were 4" with a really wet crack enclosing the area about 30 yards out pretty sketchy about a ten foot puddle to cross the crack

Hi I am planing on fishing Black Wolf Point with my Grandfather and was wondering if someone could give me some tips. I have never fished Bago and was wondering what I can catch and how far will we need to travel to the main basin? Would I be able to get some perch and Walleyes or aren't they in this area? Thanks for any help you can PM me if you want.

I am looking to team up with somebody to fish poygan this Friday or Saturday if the ice is safe enough. I live 15 mins away from winnebago on the east side. Just looking to get out and do some fishing for the first time this year. PM me if somebody is interested.

FISHING REPORT
12/15/14 6:33 PM CST
Conditions: Foggy Air Temp: 41° - 45° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
started out in some channels by Lakeside Park .. marked some fish , caught a few smaller perch, couple 7 inch bluegill, all released. Then went up west shore , out Subway rd, to south a bit , couldn't mark a fish. Went up to Nagy Point landing, went out to 8' water and couldn't mark a fish , drilled a line of holes toward shore, about 15 holes , every 15'. Never marked a fish on locator. Spent 4 hours in the last two places . These are places I have had very good luck at in the past. tried waxies , spikes , 4 color of plastics,at least 6 different jigs , using the combos listed. NADA.. Ice was still 4" in last two spots and at least 7" in channels in Fond du Lac.. Then it started raining . Don't know what that is going to do to ice . So I'm moving down to Long Lake tommorow or the Kettle , depending where I find fishable ice

Bryan currently they are catching walleye and some perch on Poygan in and around the Horseshoe which is the deepest part of Poyagn. Fish are coming on jigs, jigging spoons and jigging rapalas tipped with minnow heads or waxies. Perch are also being taken in the bays on Lake Winnebago. Once we get more ice perch and walleye will relate to the mud and reefs. Good fishing is always had out a couple miles from Oshkosh on the same baits I listed for Poygan. If not marking fish, you will need to keep moving until you do find them. Then have fun catching them!!!
