FISHING REPORT
7/22/14 5:04 PM CST
Went back out for a couple hours Monday and had a blast with a good friend. Kept fishing simple and went straight to the weeds on the west shore. 4' of water fishing right in the thick weeds. used a regular jig and half crawler. worked it with small hops. When you hook a weed slowly pull it off the weed and let it fall that's when you get most of your hits. Kept 5 for a good family fish fry this week, and through back another dozen fish in the process. All fish that I have been keeping this year have been in that same 14-18" class cant beat those for good eaters.

Waded out on west shore over rocks in Oshkosh. Casting flicker shads #5. Cuaght whitebass, sheephead, walleye and a catfish the past few days. Great day to do while soaking your lower unit. Bring old tennies, a stringer, pliers and extra lures. Keep moving until you find them.

This afternoon and the past week reports have been basically the same. Limits of eyes and a few perch and nice gills in the mix. Jigs and 1/2 crawler in 5-7ft has still been producing the best. Casting has been more challenging due to all the surface weeds. If you drift jig or pitch jig make sure to keep weeds off your bait. One little piece of weed or moss will stop them from biting.

** Mark released this nice walleye in this picture **

I offer a discounted weekday afternoon rate!

Will be fishing perch soon!

Fished 3 hours after work today. Sadly the walleyes could not find my lures. However, the reason was that the lures were constantly in the mouth of a white bass. Probably caught 50+ white bass, which was fun, but not the target species. Depth, speed and type of crankbait did not matter at all.

Caught a goliath sheepshead too. Over 27 inches long and probably weighed 10 pounds. Now that buried the planer board!

Fished from 12pm to 7:30pm on the west side of Bago. Launched out of Black Wolf and hit Abrahams. We ended up drifting with a small hook and two split shot. My wife and I ended up with 34 perch from 9 inches to 12.5 inches. The key was to be in 10 to 11 fow. We then switched up to trolling and picked up 10 nice eater walleyes with number 7 flickers and number 5 salmos. Found a ton of fish right by the hwy N launch by the wayside and trolled the next bay's north. Probably threw back another ten eyes over 19 inches. Lots of weeds but we just ran shallow with the cranks 10 to 15 feet back. Natural perch and the flicker pro series perch were the best colors. Mud bite is pretty dead and ended up trolling all day last week for a catch and keep tourney with harnesses having 5 bites all day. Caught one nice 4 pounder but lost an absolute giant at the boat. On a side note I helped a guy at the launch get a treble hook out of his hand that was buried. The ole string trick works great. Prevented him from going to the hospital. Hope this helps!

Wednesday is going to be excellent conditions for walleye Wednesday July 23rd I will be fishing on Lake Winnebago. The weather will be perfect for Walleye fishing--Cloudy winds at 14 mph. A perfect Walleye chop and clouds!

I have a opening for a all day walleye trip in my boat. $200 8- 9 hours of walleye fishing. I can partner you up with someone on my boat. I usually fish with 2 - 3 people in my boat

I jig for walleyes and cast for them as I really prefer to have fun out there. Catch walleyes and learn a lot spending time out with me on the water. I do a lot of trolling on Green Bay we can do both on Winnebago, but I prefer to feel the fish hit my bait and set the hook.

Check out my reports tab if you want to see how I have been doing on Winnebago and Green Bay. You can scroll back over a year. go to my website Greenandgoldfishing.com

Fished the point between millers bay and asylum bay from shore at a friends house. Saw lots of people Trollin with boards out in front of us, but we stuck to slip bobbers and bouncing jigs with crawlers on small pink jigs. Picked up a lot of small eyes then a few bigger, one was a hump back. Also caught one nice perch and some nice gills. Two walleye were caught on the baitcast throwing pink 1/4 oz jig with a white mister twister. Ended the night with a 27 inch channel cat. Fished 6pm to 10pm.

Thanks to everyone who's posted tips on this lake. Saturday was my first time there. Launched out of asylum bay with the fiance. It's always difficult getting on the fish in a new body of water but after an hour we found a couple eyes on the reef nearest to asylum bay. Seemed to catch them right as I drifted from mud to rock bottom, up to 6fow. Kept 2 around 15" plus threw back a couple smaller ones. Next time I'll have a better idea what to start with. Used both crawlers and leeches on a jig. Bites and fish on both. Of course the fiance outfished me, but ya know as captain its your job to get them on the fish... Two dogs in the boat didn't help either. All well, it was a great time and I'll be back. Thanks to everyone posting tips, I followed the advice and it worked great.

Also, I was surprised by the number of people targeting eyes. Speaks volumes to how good of a fishery it is. At first glance I thought it was a perch fleet like i'm used to on Mendota. Very cool to see everyone catching fish!

Pinion, fished bago for many years. #1 rule I had is more wind hit the shallow reef tops. Overcast, shallow too. The guy a few post back had a great tip. Troll transition bottom structure, muck to gravel. Possibly hire a guide for a day, these guys seem to catch fish in cold fronts with 30mph winds. Yep I'm jealous. Either way, I read your report, your catching some fish. Good luck, I will be posting Monday PM as I am going out Monday AM. Tight lines

Fished the Bago today....picked up a three man limit for the neighbors drifting and tossing jigs and half crawlers on the garlic Island reefs. Caught this odd ball walleye that must have had a birth defect so I saved him another trip up the wolf next year and took the blade to him.

Drifted with Jigs on Haystack - only picked up 2 keepers. Motored over to Mansur and made several drifts using jigs and 1/2 crawler - caught LOTS of sheephead and 7 additional walleyes. Also had 3 nice perch to go along with the walleyes. Fished with 1/8 ounce jig tipped with 1/2 crawler working off the bottow. Green seemed to be the magic color today. Most fish in 6-8 feet of water with the perch of course coming in 10 feet.

My son and I have fished Winnebago now for the past four years with limited success. We would like to target some larger walleyes and were wondering if someone could offer suggestions on where and how. Boat can handle large waves, we can troll, jig, cast, and all sorts of presentations. We would like to see some larger fish if we can. If you are willing to share some suggestions I would welcome a PM. Thanks in advance.
