Been having a tough year walleye fishing. Not coming as easy as the last few years. Did see some fish caught today. I ended up with 1 male. Fished from 4:30 -7:30pm. 3/8 green with minnow drifting channel edges. Only a couple other bits for me. Good luck out there.

That sure looks like the same picture you posted last year. I really would have to be persuaded to believe that was from 2014.

Yep....I've caught and have eaten both varieties. It's not walleye or white bass by any sort, but not bad. I'm not certain why so many in Wisconsin treat them as garbage? Myself included.... Dull

ive eaten goats before and they are fine, breaded and dipped in tartar sauce like any other fish,,, most clubs or fundraiser fish frys in the wolf river/Winnebago chain almost always serve sheepshead for those events

Yeah....I knew this would happen.

Wini....One is the Atlantic Croaker(salt water species of drum)"Left Image"...... The other is (in Wisconsin) fresh water drum "Sheepshead"

Well..."Nearly" the same exact fish. Look at the photos.

The 'sheepshead" in the ocean on the east coast are totally different than the 'sheepshead" we have in Wisconsin. The only thing they have in common is their nickname.

FISHING REPORT

Went out this morning(6-Noon)Fremont area. I was looking to get into some White Bass.....Still nothing today. Monday, I couldn't keep'em away from my shiner's. No walleye's today, but Sheep's Head are thick everywhere.....I dehydrate these fish for roughly 8-10 hours in my pole barn. Then I bake them in the oven @ 200 degrees for 2-3 hours. After this I grind them in the food processor until mealy. Makes awesome plant food for the tomatoes and eggplant's.

I don't know if anyone else is aware of this, but on the east coast Sheep's Head are salt-water fish. They(easterner's...Maryland to North Carolina)call them Croaker's or Hard-head's and consider them relatively scrumptious table-fare, breaded and fried. Here they are a fresh-water drum.

The guy's on the pier were bouncing them off of the pier today and laughing, calling it a rough release. I don't know...Seem's a little senseless to me. I'm sure they have a purpose in this system. If you're gonna kill something, at least get some sort of use for the life taken. Like I said.... they do make great garden fertilizer.

To each their own.

Fished the river today. Up and down from Red Bank. 7 eyes and 2 white bass. Great size today 6 over 18" and 1 14". Great day but the wind was brutal. current flowing anywhere from 1.5 - 2.2mph on gps. Here is a pic of 2 of them

We plan on coming up may 3rd through the 5th, is this usually to late for white bass?

skeet skeet...It was the wind today. it blew all of the marsh grass and bottom muck into the river. Made fishing tough today. There a lot of debris floating and hanging up in lines.

I'm thinking that's why the WB weren't hitting today....Not one. White bass like clean fresh water. That's usually what gets them running....Good amounts of rain early starts the season early.

I was watching the wolf river Fremont cam this morning at it was very visible. Since about 1-2 hrs ago it now has very low visibility. I am thinking the river became dirty from the rain over the weekend and higher waters.
