I just moved to Fond Du Lac last summer and I'm trying to find a good place to catch bass,walleye,perch, or crappie from shore due to not having a boat. Any ideas?

1/32 oz. jigs with added split shots a foot above the jig works the best for me. Color helps them find your bait and the jig rarely gets swallowed.

Jig or hook works fine. Don't worry about the bugs just got off the water no bug issues at all

Planning on going out on the lake for the first time this year and I have a couple questions. For slip bobbers do you just use a regular hook or a jig and second how have the bugs been because I know they can get really bad if there isn't a whole lot of wind which looks to be the case for this weekend. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have 2 extra holders in the back of boat that I keep empty just for the reason that I drop back middle board and take the inside board to the opposite side of boat and real it up closer to the boat and just bring the fish up the middle with no problems.Hope this helps but everybody has a different method and it is what your more comfortable with.

the side the wind is blowing too. So if you were on the other side it would be calm. fish like stacking up on wind blown sides and points and reefs Wink

Scrape Iron: I will reel in my inner boards, about half way, THEN open the bails and let them drop back till they are further back than the outside board. Then close those bails. As they move to the outside, I'm reeling in the outside board, which is now ahead of the others. This only works if all your lines are set back about the same. You can have tangles if you have long and short leads.

This works well. but you do need to have good spacing between your boards to begin with.

I hope this helps,

Fishing has been alright lately. Some days they bite and other days it seem they have lock jaw. Lately we have been catching many fish over twenty inches and for me that means back in the water they go. Trolling #7 Flicker Shads in Gold and Firetiger has been the hottest!! Please practice CPR Catch/Photo/Release. Have a great day in the water!!!

Scrap Iron: Simple answer is that no you do not have to reel them all in. Quite a few things come in to play tho, if you are running cranks at longer lengths, that is the safest bet is to reel them in and let them out so that you have plenty of space. Normally I will have me or whoever I am fishing with reel the middle board in and let the inside 1 back 1st and then when the middle board is to the boat let it out, all while having the other person reel the outside board in. If you are running things at shorter lengths or have them spaced out pretty far apart, you can easily just let them both out while reeling in the outside. Biggest problems you will run in to is when you get small fish that just get dragged along, they can easily cross your other lines when reeling them in. Also if you get a big fish on and it takes the board out behind the boat more, then you can cross lines when reeling it in. So in those cases you gotta just play it smart and reel in what is needed to safely clear everything. At times I will even reel a board up and let it out with no clicker on so it goes straight back. It's all a learning experience Wink

Late report for Last Thursday

Fishing has been the best ever and it has been disappointing depending on the day. Great days are there to be had too.

Last thursday we had clouds ALL DAY and wind. My boat only jigs, casts. We had a 27, 25,24,24, 22,22 and others 17-21 (kept 9).

Other days Dinks/ sheep and some nice perch and crappies. Wind or really lack of it; is tough to fish the way I do on lake Winnebago when not trolling.

I have been using crawlers and leeches and some days there is definitely a preference one way or another.

I have been fishing with a lot of the same guys I fished with last year or in previous years! Thanks everyone!

All I can say is try everything, drift, anchor, cast jigs, cranks and use slip bobbers. down size to 6# mono on some rods even. Fish weeds, rocks .

I have a few openings and am also doing very well on Green Bay. Call or email if you want to get with me.

not a report but a question, when using planner boards and you get hit on the out side board. do you have to real in the inside boards first. I spend more time untangling line's then i do fishing. I've watched you tube video's and can't tell how it's done, other than all the fish are netted at the back of the boat.

Thanks

There is a really good school of walleye 3 miles out from faro springs rd , been running crawlers 20 and 25 back on 1 oz . Go south of when you can see faro springs rd and with a south wind go north until you are past faro springs about 1 mile . The fish are all over the water column from 8 down to tight on bottom different schools will feed at different times so stick with it color not as important as speed , 1.4 seems the ticket. When really windy it's hard to hold speed down so a 11/2 oz may work in heavy chop but stay 20 to 25 back , active fish are higher up from my expirience . Line up faro springs rd and the center of the north shore golf club it's a really cut out grassy area you can see from a long way off this will put you in the thick of it , I would give the gps but the fish move a 1/2 mile of this daily and feed at all times of the day . I hope this helps everyone out, perfect wind would be south at 5 to 7 mph. If I have a color preference it would be copper back with tommy Harris in green/ pink / purple / that is my go to pattern! Good luck all ! Tutor
