2 of us got on the lake for about 8 hours yesterday.  We chased everything but found the bit very fickle.   6 fish all day  2 small walleyes, a perch, 2 bass and 1 sunny.  Given the amount of time and low amout of fish, can't say any spot was good.  Water was super clear.  Water Temp was 67 or 69, depending where we were.  Don't know if I ever seen so much pre-Memorial day boating on the lake, but it was a picture perfect day.  75 and light breezes.

Was wondering what the ice / shoreline conditions were like on Wapo. Anyone know what the landing is like by Waterside ? Thanks!

Lots of full size trucks on the ice. North end loaded with shacks. 13" ice by the sunrise ramp island area. Good ice.

Fished sat for gills and eyes. Fishing was brutally tough. Fished out from sunrise. In the deep flats se of the island we got into dinky perch that were aggressive. Marked a million lookers near the island and in the cluster of shacks near the boat ramp but they were not in the mood for any color jig. No flags on tip ups in the area. Tough day with nasty wind. Had fun with good friends and learned a little. First time on this lake. Gorgeous lake with pine trees and a neat park at the dam too.

I've been hearing from several people the fishing has really picked up on wapo but have not gotten any specifics. Anyone out there have an update?

Fished a few hours yesterday before it got too hot. Panfish relating to weed edges and over the weeds. And the ever present bass. Very small jig/crawler or slip bobber with crawler was best. I only kept about a 10 or so nice perch for a meal but if you move around you can catch sunnies, too. Not every weed patch has fish, though. I was near the bible camp's west side.

Fished for two hours last Saturday (6/6). Anchored near the island in about 10 feet. Steady, but not fast and furious, action. Some nice sunnies (one or two still had spawn!) two nice perch, a few bass and one really nice striper (or are they white bass?) were the highlights. Slip bobbers and jigging with a leech were the approaches of choice. Water temp was 67 and the water clarity is starting to fade.

Lots of panfish on the weedlines off the bible camp by the narrows. I got into the crappies with plastics. Did not keep fish but caught about 30 or so. Lots of sunnies and the usual bass, too. Nice day. Windy in the morning.

Friend and I fished a ton yesterday. Cold Front had come through, and the wind was blowing pretty consistently. Overcast morning produced 1 keeper crappie and 1 small bass. Mid-afternoon, sun came out and fishing improved dramatically. Keeper sunnies and some nice bass were abundant, especially on our time on Bear Trap (fishing the bay). Leeches were the order of the day, easily out producing both crawlers and fatheads. All fish were caught on slip bobbers and jigs. Most came in 7-10 feet of water. Find a weed bed and then fish the perimeters. The island on Wapo, typically a dependable spot, produced nothing. Clear water and a strong cold front has em hiding elsewhere. Water temp was 63, and the clarity is still really good.

Yesterday (Thur.) report. Ditto the day before. Kept 15 perch same size. Small jig/crawler and some slip bobber. Big problem, 1) muskies wanted my fish and kept cruising around and that shut things down. 2) wind. Lots of crappies yet, and sunnies including lots with eggs. Bass everywhere. Carp bow guys, now is the time! Lots in the shallows.

Fished yesterday. Went after perch and found enough for a meal, some very nice, scattered along deeper weed edges. Jig/crawler. But this lake is really going right now. Lots of bass, some very nice. Lots of nice sunnies (yes, they have black spots) and some crappies. Even got a decent northern jigging. Not every weed line has fish but when you find them its almost every cast.

Finally got the boat out this weekend. Saturday night, fished for about 90 minutes near the island...a few small bass and one nice sunny. Sunday the rains came and were steady all day long. We were bored so we beared the weather and went out for about 2 hours. 4 of us fishing (2 kids, 2 adults) and we caught over a dozen fish. All 7 sunnies were keeper size (and all were post spawn). The bass were mostly modest, except the stripper...biggest one I have seen from the lake. It was over 2 lbs. My 10 year old daughter hooked it so she was elated. Fished all along the east shoreline. Water temp was 61...the water is VERY clear right now, so all of our success came from casting away from the boat and most of it in 8-10 feet of water. No pike or walleyes to speak of. Used jigs tipped with leeches and crawlers. I hope to spend some considerable time on the water this coming weekend.

Drove out at sunrise landing and headed north within a 100 yards of racetrack and fished on 12 fow and did pretty well until the wind blew us off the lake. Caught some very nice perch mixed in with sunfish. No crappies.
