Was out earlier from 10:30 - 1:30 targeting perch. Caught three dozen sheeps and nothing else. We returned to four productive perch spots from earlier this Summer in the 17-18 foot range, but there was nothing but sheeps. Action was good at least. We tried two shallower rock spots in the 13-15 foot range, but didn't get any bites, not even from sheeps. The wind started to pick up around 1:15 and white caps started to appear, so we got off before taking further risks. Steady wind out of the west all day, and conditions were borderline to becoming rough. Will hopefully be back out tomorrow.

only issue w end of summer/fall perch is finding flat enough day to fish them effectively.   We have had very few days in the last two weeks that a guy can fish perch.  If you don't choose to follow the wind,  fishing opportunities have been VERY limited recently.

yes,  the lake eventually gets cleaner or should I say less algae.

Does the algae on Winnebago clear up in September or October?

Nick , perch fishing can be fantastic all the way through the end of October . They switch to minnows when the water cools and school better . You will have the lake to yourself for an added bonus

Tried to go out yesterday and today to go perch fishing, but was turned away again by the wind and the waves. This has happened the past several times we wanted to go fishing. Very frustrating. Haven't been out perch fishing in over three weeks now. When I get back out I'll post reports again.

Question: How many of you perch fish later into the Fall season? How well do you do?

Trolled for 2 hours this afternoon, caught dozen or so whitebass, one being 15",  1 15" walleye and lost another walleye. Whitebass were 10-12 fow and the walleyes were in 5 fow. Fished from the mouth in Oshkosh to  South Asylum bay. Caught on Flickershads.

Walleye were not cooperating and didn't have a ton of time to fish .....wanted to go north east...so called up brother to meet me at asylum to put a smack down on the whitties as the gulls were active.  Didn't take long and we were using the spot lock and filling up the live wells.  

To the south west of garlic and North asylum were good areas.

You can troll both together if you use willow leaf blades . I do it with lead core all the time but that certainly isn't the way it has to be  . What every your comfortable with.

Usually you either fish cranks or harness, it don't mean it won't work! As a rule a harness speed is 1 mph where a crank can go up to 2.5. For its optimum wobble which trigger bites. Fish don't want to expell any more energy than they need to eat. If a 5 inch perch is available he will eat several of those rather than chase 2 dozen minnows around for a hour b-4 they are full. Soring is generally better fishing because the young of the yr fry is not yet available when they get to fry size or larger later (June) there meals are easier to get because there is more food! A fisherman pulls a worm thru the water with a thousand minnows in the same area fish WILL target the easier meal.right now on bago fish are really tight schooled find one of the new art reefs that walleyes for tomorrow are building ( hard to troll they are to small) fish at times are stacked on and around these! Fish fish fish learn learn learn anyone can catch fish when the bites on fire try different options you will be surprised at your success! 90  percent of fish are in 10 percent of the lake 5 percent of the day.
