This may sound like a dumb question, and I'm sure I won't receive much of an answer, but I figured I would try anyway. Where in the river is a good place to target the crappies this time of year? I've always heard about them, but have never figured it out. Are they in backwater areas or near downed timber in the main river? Not trying to sound like an idiot, but I could never find them. I'd like to get out and try for a meal as I'm out of fish. Maybe I was just trying at the wrong time of year. I don't have much time to get out and fish, so literally, just getting a few for the pan is my intention. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to share information freely. Thank you in advance to anyone that is willing to help.

Kids got ot of school early wednsday so we took advantage and chased crappies. Water is quite high for september. Had lots of bites on minnows and jig with minnow, very lite bite and we lost more than we caught. Ended up with enough for one meal, not much.

Fishcraft, I often mark schools of fish in the Wolf and will note dozens upon dozens on my screen and never get a bite. I wonder if these are actually fish and maybe its debris in the water. In the case of eddy edges, where the currents are moving counter to each other, wondering if these counter currents are being shown as fish on the screen. Kind of like when I start up my outboard and suddenly the sonar shows I have a bunch of fish 3 feet under my boat, due to the water disturbance of the motor.

I was out last night for a couple hours. I was jigging riprap for some smallys, had a bunch of fish under 10" but only one nicer one. Was marking big schools of suspended fish between 23-12 FOW in the edge of edys;nothing would hit a crawler or minnow on a jig in the schools

What a morning! 46 inch, 23 lb. caught in New London on Mepps "5 on 10 lb test. What a fight. This is my 15 year old nephew...he did great fighting the fish. 20 minutes of agonizing fun! Not to mention he caught a 27" pike right befor it! What a fisherman

~Fishing The river around New London is dark stained, and this time of year has a fair amount of algae. Also the water level is approaching the lowest you will see all year. I just took a ride today and the river bottom is showing below the rocks on the shore line. As far as I know, bass (large and small mouth) are biting on worms and top water (buzz, poppers, frogs), and cats on bottom with stink bait, worms, and frogs. I haven't heard of much else being caught.

Curious what the water clarity is around here most times? Fishing for the first time north of new london and I want to make sure I bring the right stuff. Any tips greatly appreciated. The girlfriend is going to be with me so i'll be after anything that bites.

Been doing good on LM and decent size pike in the area on larger in line spinner baits. Anyone catching crappie or walleye?

Wisconsin Hunter/Fisher.. I have been out around the New London area just about every day this past week. Have been using minnows, crawlers, leeches, chubs/suckers, along with artificial baits (cranks, plastics, spinners, top water) and only catching goats and dink cats. We need some wind to get the fish biting!
