Yes the white bass are on the rock wall and at the mouth of Poygan. It has been an early and late bite but the fish seem to be getting more aggressive. Been some big walleye caught and released also dragging jigs and crawlers

Went out all weekend every morning and evening. Jigged minnows and crawlers at the mouth, at the rat, and at all the usual bends. Tried different jig sizes as well as colors. Even threw some spinners. Caught 2 small cats one whitebass two smallies and a bunch of sheepshead...is it too early? What do you guys think? I know fall is typically slower than spring. Just wondering if other guys had luck...thanks for the tips. Have a great week. Also, I wanted to get into some gills or panfish . Tried pumpkinseed earlier in summer. Any tips?
Yea bigkeith29. Like Chris said, you pretty much need a boat to have the best success in the fall run. It's a lot different than the spring spawn run when the fish move as far up as they can go and giving you more options to catch them from shore. In the fall though, I have my best success from Chico's and different spots going all the way down to Poygan. I have done exceptionally well in the fall but it takes a little bit of hunting them down. I wait till about the 18 of Sept and do really good through oct as well for Whites and Eyes. Now if you are in need of a boat, there are a number of boat rental places. You can do some online or google research. Or Chris at F.B.T is a local guy who will always point you in the right direction. Good luck and much fun!
Fall is a lot harder. Last year the walleye only made it to the first few miles. If you can find a boat or rent one, it will be the best fishing. If not, we can point you to where the fish are once the major run starts
