Dave5555, I do know that there was a shad die off over winter as I seen it firsthand after the ice went out north of stockbridge. I seen a bunch of dead shad on the shoreline. I don't know how much of the lake was affected if at all. I do know the mud bite has been slow recently as the walleye are being caught in the 6-12 foot range still. I am sure some guys are getting fish in the mud though. Walleye follow the food sources. There are a ton of other food sources in the lake such as emerald shiners, sheepshead, whitebass, perch, etc. My first guess would be the DNR should know something more about the shad and if anything is affected. It was a LONG, COLD, winter!

I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed far fewer shad in the lake this year, and I'm wondering if it's due to the cool weather this year and they are simply not in the same places, or was there a big die off during last winter (which I've heard but not sure if reliable)? If there was a big die off, I presume that will have a major impact on the mid lake mud flat fishing at some point. Does anyone have any solid info? thx.

Looking for largemouth and smallies. Would you suggest the east side or west side to start my search. Thanks.

Had a couple more trips to Lady Bago recently. Last Friday and yesterday. Last Friday even with the south wind blowing it was tough to get bit. I believe we missed 2 fish at the boat and only had 4 fish for my 2 clients to take home. Yesterday did some more reef hopping and found Eyes in several areas both rock and rock weed areas on the West side. I believe we ended up with 13 Eyes and one Whitebass kept and threw back a bunch of sub 14" Eyes. All fish kept were nice 16" to 17" eater fish. I had a rock star young lady in the boat yesterday that showed even a first time Walleye angler at 13 years old can whup up on us adults. She had her 5 fish easy yesterday, while the rest of us hunted and pecked our way around Sheephead.

I am hitting the Big pond the next several days along with a trip to Green Bay. With the water temps so mild it looks like the shallow bit on Bago should remain good for a while and maybe the rest of the season. Cool

Fished east side today only could pickup 4 walleyes and a few white bass. I really had to work for those today. 2 other boats each had 4 walleyes also that we knew.

The parking lot was really empty this morning I see why. Last few trips out have been meh.

Now is not a good time to be on the lake. Looks pretty ominous.

Fished solo this morning east side, pretty slow for me. Only 2 eyes and a bunch of white bass and sheephead, one was huge. Trolling flickershads. Water was really cloudy and the launch was a mess, a floating mass of green algae and debris.

The bugs have not been bad unless the lake is calm. The occasional biting black fly is buzzin around, take a pair of high socks to stop them from biting your ankles. Good Luck!

Can anyone tell me if that insect problem is still an issue out on the lake? Tried fishing last Wed. and lasted less than a half hour out there because of the bugs, in your eyes,in the nose, down the throat etc....just insane with them. Never seen it that bad. I would like to get out the 30th or 31st this week, any information would be much appreciated, Thanks

Fished Saturday on East side. Only 5 perch to show betw 3 of us. 7-12. Trolled mud...more successful, flicker shads and shad raps. No one said the fish jump into boats out here. Night crawlers were not the ticket. Thank goodness the sun stayed under cause it was hot when sun peeked through clouds.

Last night the channel cats were snapping along Ames Point, Menominee Park, Oshkosh. I was actually targeting white crappie because I caught several nice 11" - 12" ones there last week. Spooled up 8 pound test Berkley X-tra Tough to avoid another break off if my drag stuck again on my old Mitchell 308 (other rod had something bite off ten pound test Stren). Used a 1/8 oz. chartreuse jig with a custom orange stripe painted along the bottom and a white Gulp 2" minnow threaded on the hook. Set my casting bobber to fish 4 feet deep. Threw it out as far as I could along the lakeside breakwater rocks. Fished a few hours before dusk. Caught 5 nice eating size catfish 15", 16", 17", 17 1/2" and 23". 4 walters 10" (fair hooked and back swimming) No crappies, though. Couldn't get back at them tonight 'cause had to fix a radiator hose. Love the fishing here, for me its been "like a box of chocolates".

Launched at Asylum Bay noon sunday and fished west side reefs for three hours the wind made for a wild ride. One 15" walleye one sheep on slip bobber with leaches. One 15" walleye two 16" smallmouth on slip bobber with crawlers. One 20" walleye on orange jig with another guy artificial leach. Also missed three during the hookset (I believe operator error). Thanks to TRS for the fishing info and directions to the launch .
