Had trips over the weekend on bago and she treated us well. We caught a bunch of sheep but managed limits of some nice walleyes and a few bonus perch.  Was nice for some newbies to catch their first walleyes.

Jigging, slip bobbers, casting plastics, casting  crank baits and some long lining all worked pretty well. The wind was brutal but I think it helped our bite.  Everything was by areas that had a lot of gravel and not so much rock. The crayfish seem to be what the eyes are chasing.  I was finding chunks of craws in the live well.

1/16 oz jigs slowly crawling o n the bottom with a half crawler. Blue and orange or orange and yellow jigs worked best. (Replicating craw colors)  the  it's is very soft so patience is key.

July has a bunch of openings. The perch and walleye should continue well through the month. 

Cheers!

For the guys that messaged me to see the video I posted showing the amount of shad in the lake, I added it to YouTube so it is easier to view.

 There are plenty of walleye to be caught, you just need to find the ones that are not full from shad.   The walleye action has been steady, and the perch bite has been great when the weather cooperates.

Made it out on Saturday --  Windy means Walleyes !  Fish were aggressive and hammering the baits.  Only had to visit one reef to catch my limit. They ran a bit larger than previous outings ..   Threw back many smaller ones .

Quick question. There was a sport shop on Algoma Blvd in Oshkosh a couple years back, and they had a second store in Appleton I think and closed the Oshkosh store but I can't remember the name. Does anyone know if they are still in business? Any contact info would be appreciated. They used to have a great selection of Salmo Hornets.

Keep a tight line!!!

i go out and catch 3 but don't want to clean them i throw them back. Legal.

I catch 4,  throw all in the livewell,  catch the 5th and keep it.  then catch 6 and cull one out, that's illegal on two infractions.  Over bagging and culling since the cull counted as your limit you have 6.  

if you are fishing for fun,  you should only have 4 walleye in the livewell to be legal.  when you intend on leaving,  catch the 5th and put it in and your good.  

If you are fishing with 5 and a DNR comes up to you...you're fishing Whitebass.  Not that I want to aid to illegal activity,  but some don't intend on catching more and culling.  To be legal with 5 in the livewell,  you can't continue to fish walleye's.

Group bagging is illegal too.  Your not supposed to fill your buddies limit because he can't catch a cold.  You will get a ticket if you caught 7 and your buddy 3 if a warden is scoping you with bino's.  Everyone does it,  but i know many that were caught,  not on Winnebago though.  

Unfortunately we only have 1 or 2 wardens per county.

Son wanted to bass fish, so we fished some channels on the west side out of Oshkosh. Wacky rigged Senkos and Yum worms did the job. Too bad the wind was terribly strong like it usually is everytime I've had time to get out this year. Time for a trolling motor repair or replacement. Was using my loud main motor to move along shore. Lol. We still caught em. Bass fishing is easy.

It is illegal... (see attached photo). You can release fish that have been in your livewell, but you are playing with fire.

Money is the root of all evil! I often wonder why the Coast Guard, Sheriffs Dept., or DNR don't bust all those huge boats that drive full throttle dangerously close to much smaller boats. I see this almost every time out, as I am one of the much smaller boats and have experienced being capsized by a recreational boater on Bago. Thanks to the sail boat team that rescued us by the mouth of the river. I was 9 at that time. It must be about the money. All that money and they can't afford to swing out a little wider.

Yay fishing reports and less angry fisher folks! 

Hit it Friday after work with my brother and boy did he have his game face on. 6 fish in the first 30 min! Of course one found a hole in the net.... There after we grudged it out until dark taking one here and there. 

Dumped in midday Saturday hit two immediately in the first 20 minutes. Lost one at the boat and then... it shut off (the winds may also have played into this with terrible boat control) Guess I should have drove up earlier rather than sleep in and have breakfast. 

Solid weekend of Warrior winds fishing the east side. Nice change of pace to Lake Michigan.
