Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 46° - 50° F Water Temp: 51° - 55° F
Had to break out the winter gear the past few days but it hasnt stopped the fish from biting. Lots of whitebass and walleyes throughout the river. Some days we get nice fish other just eaters...has been strange that way. Dragging crawlers and leeches along with pulling 3 way rigs is all we have been doing this week. The warmer weather coming this weekend is something all of us are looking forward to I'm sure. If anyone is looking to get out this weekend I still have an opening. Good numbers of either species should be very obtainable! Good Luck and tight lines! Troy

Just posting a couple fish from this week. Most everyone is still limiting out despite the weather. This picture was from Tuesday but he duplicated this morning in 3 hours. Warmer weather coming!

We always offer free maps and locations including shore spots. Just stop in and let us know where you want to go and what you want to catch.

The catfish was guessed over 30 pounds and released.

It's been a lot of fun on the water lately. Plenty of fish and tons of action with cats, walleyes, and whites.

Whites - flies, blades, paddle tails, spoons, spinners. Everything is having its moment. Water temps are moving fish back and forth from deep to shallow. Use your electronics to find a school and fish'm.

Walleyes- about as simple as it gets. 1/8 or 1/4 Oz CJS Dragging jigs with half a crawler or leech. Drift just about any run and use the lightest jig you can. Remember for dragging, you don't want your lines vertical. Cast up river and drag down as you drift.

The CJS Draggin Jigs are about the best snag proof jig I have found. Well worth the little extra in cost as I loose very few of them.

Cats- getting incidentals while fishing eyes on crawlers.

Big shot out to Chris at Fremont B/T. Been open on time, bait in Stock, and most of the key essentials always on hand. He has the dragging jigs now in stock is all colors. It's been a pain in the rear to find stocking dealers and Chris listened to us on having an assortment of relatively snag proof jigs. Thanks Chris for listening to your customers!

I posted my message with the expectation that someone wouldn't like it but with the hope that someone would open their eyes a little wider. Glad I could make some sense and that others feel the same. Good fishing to all that don't violate!(it is never necessary and karma is for real)

Another good point. Just because other people keep more than one limit per day doesn't make it all right for you and I to do it. All over bagging does is hurt the fishery and make other people angry.

I'm posting a link to an article about the Winnebago Pool and walleye written a few years back. The "Good Old Days" weren't that good.

http://dnr.wi.gov/wnrmag/2012/04/walleye.htm

The DNR, overall, does a great job IMO. That said, if you are looking for huge, record setting walleye, you're fishing the wrong lake- hell the wrong state. Try Washington, Oregon, Arkansas and a few other states for trophy fish. Winnebago simply does not have the things needed for huge fish. What it DOES have, is a massive population of walleye that most people like to catch and eat. One of the few places I can think of anywhere in the US where you can fish during the spawn. I'm not a big fan of White Bass, but as said before, they are here to stay. And they taste good. PS- don't rationalize YOU poaching by keeping double limits of walleye by saying "we all" do it. I don't, never have, never will. Most folks I see fishing don't either. Good luck everyone!!!

Ryan Koenigs DNR sends out excellent e-mails regarding the Walleyes and Sturgeon on the Winnebago system. These lakes are in excellent hands.

I recommend everyone who fishes this system ask to be included in the e-mails.

Well said got2catch1..I have used a few for fertilizer and ate plenty. There is definitely an overabundance of the Whities.

Huger and other speculators: Please do some research on the WISCONSIN DNR website! Great information available (actual facts, not speculation). The DNR works hard to maintain and manage our resources. However, like so many employers, they are subject to "budget cuts" and government b.s. They are not a perfect organization but a very necessary one. FACT: Without the DNR, we would have little to no deer population. And, the same would go for fish populations. Generally speaking, give an inch and people will take their mile because they believe it is theirs first and foremost. Imagine that outcome. FACT: The Lake Winnebago system is one of the top walleye and whitebass fisheries IN THE NATION! How do you think it became this good? Can't be because of the DNR, can it? Please have a little faith in their service and enjoy the blessing of the resources that are available. Also, feel free to contribute to the sustainability of the resources whether that means reporting violators, volunteering or donating to conservation efforts, keeping or releasing any size fish (within the regulations), or picking up garbage on and off the water. These are a few ways to assist the DNR in maintaining and managing the resources.

Regarding the number of whitebass that should be kept... it is clear to me that there is absolutely no need to put a limit on whitebass. I personally view whitebass as a plague on the system, as they become annoying to me in the summer and I personally do not enjoy eating them. They can be fun to catch though (especially through the ice). Our high whitebass populations are excellent for the local economies, as many anglers enjoy catching them and eating them. Whitebass are a necessary evil in my opinion; however, as a walleye angler primarily, I have a theory (or speculation if you will Big Smile) that after the walleyes spawn and their fry hatch what species follows... those minnow eating machines... whitebass. The whitebass population is here to stay. You can try to put a dent in the population but you won't. No limit necessary. As a matter of fact, I have been considering keeping them for fertilizing the garden but I would be condemned so I won't.

Walleyes are very plentiful in the system, too. Many walleyes have been harvested year after year and guess what... they are still thriving and will continue to do so. Thank you DNR and others who contribute! I keep a lot of fish and eat a lot of fish. I have a large family. I keep several limits of walleyes throughout the year (never more than I need), and my family and I enjoy these rewards. I have heavily invested time, effort, and money into my passion for fishing (and so do many others), and I take great pride in the end result. What a process: Purchase necessary (or in my case excessive) equipment and supplies to catch fish, then I find fish (not always easy), then I have to catch them (not always easy), then I fillet the fish, then I prepare, cook and serve the fish to family and friends, and the best part of all... seeing the enjoyment on their faces and feeling that sense of pride in the investments I made.

Everything is going to be ok with regards to our local fishery! Take a deep breath and enjoy. Take a kid or ten (yikes) fishing and teach them some tricks and good conservation habits.

I personally do not know anyone (out of friends and family) who have kept more than their daily bag limit. If you know someone who is breaking the law, tell them to stop or report them. If you don't know them, don't confront them, just report them. I have reported a few people for double-dipping on the Fox in Appleton. I do agree that we could use more enforcement out there, but we gotta watch our budgets. Big Smile Go Fish!

A concerned angler.

Any good shore fishing? If so, where? New to the area and want to get out fishing. Any advice would help. Thanks in advance.

fished Tuesday-- water temp 52.5 when started and 53 when we left and it was cold. fish are in shallows now in alot of spots (wb that is) got some big ole females and some dandy males. fish will be there all of may into June its just getting good. 1.5 hour drive for me coming from Brown Deer and always worth fishing instead of doing house chores Wink or sitting on the couch. same program casting flys and they are biting with or without tipping your fly. Fremont bait has flys tied and ready to fish. red/white & purples doin the trick!
