Frozen, I sit on channel 68 when on bago, but people tend not to be talkative like those on Lake Michigan.

WATER TEMP
66° - 70° F

***FOUND: Numerous large walleyes floating belly up outside Millers Bay. "Someone poisoned the water hole!" Also, saw some tournament guys throwing fish back from there livewell. I'm sure this will flood the thread with debate, but I found it quite disgusting. Just keep em if they aren't going to survive.

Report: Fished a couple hours before the storm. Just barely made it off the water before it hit. Scary part was seeing a trailer in the lot at Menominee Park, but no boat anywhere in sight. Hopefully, they made it off safely!? Started trolling out from Streich's in 13 fow. Found some walleyes in 16-18 fow including the 25.5" in the attached picture that I let the old man catch. #5 & #7 Purple Flickershads anywhere from 50-65 fbb. Trolled along a reef before the storm hit and picked up a few eaters on #5's. We were originally going to fish the north end but I changed my mind. Glad I did because the waves made for a very wet ride and would have been much worse on the north end. Ended with 6 eaters to contribute to our Memorial Day fish fry. Big girl swam off strong. Hope my son catches that one next year before it hits a weigh-in! ??

Maybe  a stupid question but does anyone run ship to shore radios? If so what channel do you communicate with other fishermen on?

I used to fish tournament's , I have no problem with them. But you guys that fish them need to respect others. I know you all don't go out to be rude. But on Friday had  a torny boat come in and cut me off. Things like this will be the end of tournaments if you keep it up.

Fished near Oshkosh most of the day today. Caught 16 walleyes most of them smaller than 15 inches. Trolled both rigs and cranks, but couldn't boat a decent walleye. The larger fish I caught with leeches and slip bobbers. Caught a 18 and 23 inch and lost a 16 inch trying to heave it over without the net. Also caught numerous channel cats, whitebass, and sheep head. Couldn't put anything consistent together. The walleyes were virtually anywhere and it was one or 2 then wait for an hour or 2. Got off the water about 5 minutes before the hail.

Late/current report. Pulled harnesses the last few days pre-fishing for today.  Caught plenty of walleyes including numerous 23-25" fish   couple 6 pounders and even a 7 pounder per my scale. As im a tournament fishermen, we definitely killed them all because we didnt want the fishery to thrive.  Thursday and friday were a very good bite, today was tough but ended with 3 fish (23,24, 24).  Fishing the mud outside of rocks.

Fished Asylum @ the light house, 1 Thread Fin Shad ready to pop eggs, still swimming.  Moved to Kimberly Park, 1 yellow bull head, 14 inches, still swimming.  Later caught 1 sheepshead, 15 inches, still swimming.  Was checked by 2 DNR Officers today, very friendly and very helpful, give those men a kodo for their work.


Tight lines and fair winds.

I am thinking about doing some night fishing tonight on the south east side of the lake and I am just wondering what the lake conditions are like. I'm coming from an hour away and don't want to make the drive for nothing. Thanks.

Got out for the first time this year. Trolled the west shore in the morning before the waves chased us out. Had best luck using purple cranks in 13 FOW. Caught 5 eyes around 13" all were released. Also brought home 6 white bass.

Frozen you should be fine with a 21' boat. Just keep an eye on the weather.

Hadn't fished for a while so when we saw whitecaps off Stockbridge, we decided to try anyway. Ended up keeping one walleye and releasing three small ones.  Flicker shad got the nice one to bite but, we had bites on the crawlers too. The waves got bigger as the morning wore on. Fished 7:30-11:30.
