Took advantage of a trip to the in-laws in Menasha and fished this morning from 7-noon.  Hot and calm made it real tough but we managed 3 bites and landed 3 nice keepers. All fish came out of 14-16 FOW, 1 one a RipShad 200 80ft back, the other 2 on a crawler harness.  Planning on hitting it again tomorrow morning.

Bigfoot5,

The floating fish you saw appeared to have "rounded" tail points. This is typical of northern pike.  I can't say for sure,  but that would be my guess. Muskies have more pointy tail points.  But that being said,  there are muskies in Winnebago.....

Got out about 9:30 Thursday morning in search of schools in the mud. Picked up a couple of 19" walleyes by noon trolling Hot-N-Tots 2.3 to 2.6 mph. Ran across a large predator floating. Faded markings lead me to believe it was a musky. Fish was about 40 inches long. Wind direction was switching from South to East and back, which didn't help let alone the bugs were a pain when the wind would calm down. Surface temp was near 75 when I left. The water will warm even more with the high temps this weekend which should put the fish on the feed.

The flies have really decreased in the last couple days but there are still a lot of them around.  Wednesday I noticed three distinct types of flies in quantity.

I think the weekend should be a lot better.

i caught a few white bass around the mouth but I wouldn’t say they’re staging.  (More goats than white bass)

Has any body noticed if there is a school of White Bass staging at the entrance to the  Fox at Oshkosh or have they already gone through?  Thanks for the information and be careful out there.

Went out on Tuesday looking for crappie by southeast corner near pebbles. No takers? Used to get limit there. So tried trolling with shad raps. Got 2 nice ones! 22 inch eye and 18 inch sauger. About 8 ft water.

If the wind is blowing you shouldn’t have any issues with bugs. If it’s calm, it’s probably going to be bad.

Hey Guys and Gals,


Are the bugs still bad? Want to hit it this weekend with the kids but I dont think they will last long if the bugs are heavy and sheeps are floating.
