Was out sat jigging the reefs off black wolf.  Caught eight species on 1/32 oz jigs tipped with a crawler.  (2 15" Walleyes)  I caught 0 with bigger jigs.

im assuming the pic is a yellow bass.  Otherwise it was 7 species. :-)

I have not fished this lake since June. I didn't do very well at that time. So, I think the fishing is really poor right now.

This report is as worthless as all of the other non-fishing reports for the last week.

Give it a break and take these conversations to the forum discussions.

Why don't you guys take this debate to the Forums? Although it's funny to read all the expertise floating around, this is a Fishing Reports Thread.

Anyone have a recent non sheephead or whitebass fishing report? If so, please PM me. I don't want to clog the debate thread with fishing reports. Thanks.

Nobait - I don't think you are hearing me.  Even if there are 25 tourney's a year all around WInnebago,  do you really think the percentage of walleye's killed in those days amounts to much more than 1%?  Come on now,   use your head.  I know one guy that caught 102 walleye this year by himself that he kept.  that's ONE dude.   Now if you said tourney's that are held kill 100 walleye's a tourney and say 25 tourney's a year,  that's 2500.  OK,  so if one guy on the east side can keep 100 plus walleye's in a 3 months....I think you get my point.  Have you ever been to the parking lot's in May and june and have to park on the road or overflow lot's?  there are 100's of thousands of walleye's taken by the non tourney guys....which would make the killed tourney fish a miniscule percentage if one actually knew the total fish harvested a year.  

Tourney's are far less of a problem than whiners make them out to be.  7" walleye's on BOB,  big deal.  There is a reason why there is a 14 inch size limit on the BOB,  maybe when they are selling tickets there needs to be more communication.  BOB...come on man,  let it go.  you are still whining about all the 20 + inchers that were killed.  let it go pal.  Everyone beat the crap out of the eye's all winter, spring and summer...that's why the ages classes this year are so out of whack.  Not worth the breathe on people like you,  i'm done,  I think the majority will agree with me anyway...

Well your argument is going to be rather useless as more and more tournaments are going to a photo and release format with cameras and new technologies coming catch and keep tourneys will be a thing of the past.So those tournament guys must be killing far more fish than they are bringing to the scales.If your so concerned about fish kill the limits would be the place to start.Not targeting one segment of the users of the resource.No I'm not a tournament fisherman.You might want to look at the DNR creel data for the lake as well.

Kool aid must have been on sale lately. Please let me know where your pulling the data of .5% from?

Did you include the 7" walleyes or the lawyers registered at the winter BOB., in your calculations.

Most of the tourney guys are local anyway. The fish they get on tourney days are usually released. Probably LESS impact than a normal day. Mrt.
