Randy W- Yes it helps thanks much. Seems everyone is Gaga about WB, so I might have to give it a try. I know all I've had to do in the past is fish hard for Walleye and it's a guarantee I'll get nothing but WB.

SanderMan, I've been running most of my spots from poygan to Galas about every tree days. This year there just isn't a good concentration of fish down river. I've been hoping a wave of big females would show...but looks like they are spawning in the lake. I'm not saying there is no fish down there, because we have run into isolated pods and the Chico hole holds fish well in cold.spells.

With the early push of fish well before most anglers anticipated them, we have had more small waves dumping in and running up to the fremont/red banks area. Historically, after the bio mass of fish hit ftemont, they start dispersing into spawning habitat as well as others continuing up river. Hope that helps

Not a WB expert so I have a question. Most reports I see on here talk about getting them from Fremont up but not a lot of reports from say, Chico's down to Poygan. Am I just missing those reports or do most folks favor the upriver section for another reason? Maybe the river being wider there so they are less funneled? Just something I've noticed and wondered about. Thanks and be safe this weekend, good fishing.

Alright fisherman and women, here's my day on the wonderful wolf. Got out later than I would have liked. However did manage to get some white bass and walleye. white bass can be found anywhere from the new bridge all the way up to just past RedBanks ( Puke). With the cooler weather fish are rather tight lipped. I was marking fish everywhere and seen almost everyone catching them if they simply sloooooowed dooooowwwn there presentation. what worked best for me was the simple yet so effected wolf river rig with bare hook (#4 gold eagle claw) and minnow. Anchored in about 10 feet of water cast, pull the slack out, give it a couple short pops, and wait a few seconds to repeat. The bite is super light, so pay close attention and keep a tight line. Any slack will result in missed fish. The fish are still here. Look for the deeper areas as well as the shallow areas with sand and grass. For deeper areas use the good ole river rig up shallow try the river rig, a simple bobber and small jig head or the demon spinners if you find them more aggressive. Now the walleye I caught came in water 10-12 feet deep on the bottom. Wolf river rig again with plain hook and minnow as listed above. However I opted to replace the weight with a 1/4oz jig head (pink) also tipped with a minnow. The walleye were taking both the plane hook and the jig. BTW if anyone wants to know the eyes were up to 20". Not hot and heavy but still decent numbers in the main channel. Just have to find them... Now seeing previous posts about the local establishments, Here's what I gather. JUST GO TO FREMONT BAIT and TACKLE for all your fishing needs. Chris and his wife are the two nicest people, with all the information and reports you may need. And unlike even this site which does have many many great people and reports, they will give you the best and most current information. And with without the O'So Wonderful Red Bank's ATTITUDE If your not a regular or personal friend of there's also there food isn't much better or their jacked up prices on EVERYTHING. Fremont B&T also has about anything you may need for fishing the wolf, Including football inspired anchors and fly's. (Very cool IMO...) Currently I noticed a great Big map of the wolf being painted on the wall which is very nice to be shown where the best current fishing is being done if you are not familiar with this body of water. And people please support your local business and Buy from a Bait shop not a corporate gas station. I hope at least some of this was helpful to some of you out there.

Tight Lines,

PS: If you stop in at Fremont B&T Tell'em Mark sent you

Are the bayous starting to weed up yet? - Yes, but at a slow rate and they have less water than typical. Weeds are not emerging much yet.

Quick report on white bass Versatility is the game plan. This spring is unlike others and really hard to remember back to a similar year. Super low flow compounded with very frequent stiff south winds often will make it more like lake fishing than river fishing.

Like everyone else, numbers in my boat are WAY down compared to any other year. Few reasons - instable weather, fluctuating water temps, and much clearer water than usual. I'm finding a crap load of fish, watching thousands in shallow spawning, and most are pretty tight lipped.

Last week was all steady action with a small minnow drifting down current under slip floats. So far this week it has been more like considering dynamite. But, grinding out some fish has been very doable.

If your not on/marking fish - MOVE

Run/gun spawning habitat - sand flats, eel grass, timber, and rip/rap shores. Cast multiple presentations. Various colors in spinners, small cranks, jig/minnow....

Not all fish are against the shore; just like not all fish are in the channel. Work it all. We're getting WB in 2fow with spinners and having WB slam cranks as your lifting it out of the water over 12'.

Its a tough year and not all the WB ran up the river. Guys are catching them out in Poygan, so that proves we don't have the largest possible concentration of fish in the river. Additionally, they are nearing the peak of the spawn and have spread out from shallow to deep. If your watching the water closely, for the last week and a half, the spawning activity is huge. Add in the cold fronts and those temperamental fish have mostly been in a neutral mood.

Last year, I averaged having 3 rods out for 2 guys with just blades and maybe a crank or a jig/plastic. Now I'm averaging 6 to 8 rods out; all with different presentations. Much different circumstances and takes some effort this year. Not exactly just jumping into the livewell. But covering the most amount of water with a variety of presentations will put more than "average" results in your favor.

BTW - KUDOS to our Sheriff staff that are patrolling the river way. Often it's a thankless job they do. Their frequent presence does a lot of good to maintain the peace. It's a lot of water to cover and impossible for them to be everywhere at once and see everything. Good people and I appreciate the effort they extend in promoting safety. Saw a few safety checks yesterday and in the long run, that protects us all.

Be safe and good luck

Randy

Using ethier a plan hook and bobber or white n red jig just reeling slow. Help our group out and check some of our pictures.

Late report but a report none the less. Fished Thursday thru Saturday with a total of 80 whitebass, 1small walleye, and a 8lb, carp caught on an ultra lite by my teenage daughter. Baits, presentation, and water depth fished changed daily maybe even a few times a day. Never really hammered them but did better then most. Thurs the best fish came off of dark colored jigs tipped with shinners casted shallow then worked back to the boat. Tried that Fri morning, not a bite. River rigs with dark flies or plain hook took most fish in deeper water most of the day but then in the evening small jig & shinners by the rock wall worked very well. Sat was the worst fishing day for us. Super slow bite and only caught fish using demon spinners and gulp shinners on a small green jig. Wouldn't touch a live shinner but sure loved the gulp. Others I talked to did a little better around red banks but was to many people around to comfortably fish. Bite was super lite every day so you really need to pay attention to any taps you get. I believe the run is winding down. On my way off the river Saturday evening did see a guy fighting something big for quite some time by the rock wall. They didn't have a net on the boat so I offered to net it for him. He said go ahead he was tired of the fight. Turned out to be a 4 ft sturgeon but the fish was lost, way too big for the net plus the line breaking didn't help. Still a cool sight to see a fish that big but to bad the fishermen couldn't snap a pic before it took off. I tried my best. Hope this info helps...Good luck to all!

Alright guys time for me to post my report! Fished Sat with on a pontoon and did ok, the bite was not the hottest but we did manage to catch roughly about 50 +. The hottest bite was around 5pm near the rock wall. All fat females btw. The fish seems to stack up near the grassy shoreline. Fished from shore on Sun under the HWY 10 bridge and actually got skunked lol. No bites to show for. Went to a different area around town and hammer them around 4pm. They bit really good on WFR, jighead minnow combo, and spinners. Caught more on shore this day then with the pontoon. This year has been a weird year but if you know what to use and what to do, you will catch come fish. Tight lines!

Late report for Last weds 13th. We boated 70 WB during a day trip that had a very tough bite. Hardly anyone was catching, and there were a ton of people out.

We targeted structure piers boats moored up and pitched 1/8 oz chartreuse jigs with monofilament( it floats) braided line was not nearly as good. I have both in my boat.

I had 3 people in my boat that have never fished for white bass and they did really well on a slow bite.

All the fish we caught were males. Now the run should be a lot more productive. If you want to get out with me on the wolf or Winnebago give me a call or email me.

Fished from boat north of Red Banks Saturday. From 6:30am to midnight. Day started good till about 10am then shut off. Moved around to couple other places picked up 5-6 WB here & their. About 50 WB during day. We decided to give night fishing a try. Hung Colman lantern from tree & had perfect light. Had 3 boats pass us when it got dark to midnight... Caught 150WB...! Water was calm & almost zero boat traffic...! It was awesome! I'm wondering if all the boat traffic during the day slowed the bite down? Had water temp of 60.4 degrees at night... Females still had eggs in them that we cleaned this morning. Had mix of big & small WB... Used Gulp shiners W/lead head jigs, double setup. Wish we had acouple ore dats up their, it was fun! Hope this helps someone!?!

We decided to try out luck out for the white bass run on Tuesday the 12th through Wednesday night the 13th until 11:30 PM. With the cold front that came in , Tuesday was a rather slow day with catching 3 white bass total. We tried river rigs , Bobber with minnows and flys. The only thing that worked that day was the bobber set up. Wednesday was rather slow as well with a occasional fish here and their until about 8pm we found a spot near the flag pole by Chico's Landing. We ran out of minnows and decided to get another 3 dozen before they closed for the night.We went back to the spot and as soon as you tossed the slip bobber and minnow out the white bass were hitting as soon as the minnow started dropping. Every cast we got one until we ran out of minnows at 11:30PM. The temp was about 51 degrees. Before we got lucky with this run we had about 8 white bass before it hit. We ended up with 59 total white bass. So pretty much from 8PM until the time we ran out of minnows at 11:30 PM we got 50 white bass with out having to move.
