First Quarter

County line is closed. Most bogs got pretty strict on trespassing because people ruined it for others by leaving trash all over and not respecting the land. There are a few that have access from the road legally but all fished out. Just like lake tomah people gotta keep everything they catch no matter the size. Even the bogs on McCoy are over fished now due to how easy getting a McCoy pass is.

In the 80s my wife and I walked back into some back water ponds in the warrens area. Don’t remember the road but it was spelled something like “Oatman?”any way we came upon what looked like an old trapper or hunters shack. The pond was only about 20 acres and connected to a creek. The crappie fishing was phenomenal! Up to around 15”. And yes we did keep our limit. This lasted for 3 years.Bass and gills too. We thought this would never end.   WRONG!   This is an example why we need stricter limits.  And also I’m not ashamed of what we kept. This was common practice at this time. You want a great burger? Stop in at the COUNTY LINE tavern if they’re still there.  CARPIO

Got on the water later in the morning...just in time for the wind to pick up. Ended up only boating 3 smaller crappies and one 12" or so largemouth.  All fish released.  Not sure if it was the wind, the rain last night, or that this lil pond has been fished a bit too hard.  20 years ago was a much different story.  Only using an electric motor, glad the battery is newer.  Thanks to the guys who offered us a tow, although we made it out ok.  Still beats a day at work!!

Have not fished this area ever and will be visiting family this weekend. Would like to get out if someone can point me in the right direction. I want to respect the lakes and landowners. Public or private doesn't matter to me. Hoping to take my brother in law who never fishes out and have him catch a few fish. (He is not a fan of the cold so we probably won't be out long just AM Saturday). PM me if you'd like. Much appreciated.

Fished a flowage in the Warrens area. No breeze, very few bugs. The panfish were aggressively hitting Mitimites, no bait required. Caught many dozens of bluegills, crappies, perch, a few bass. Threw all fish back today, but there was definitely a nice catch for the frying pan if that's what we wanted. A gorgeous day to be out there. On another flowage earlier in the day, the fishing was not good and the black flies were taking charge. Good luck comes to those who don't give up.

I have been fishing this area for years and it is the worst I have ever seen it. Not even worth trying this summer. I think the heat last year did a number on the ponds combined with the ice this winter. It may be a few years before we see anything come back.

I fished the Olson flowage on HH this past weekend, caught a decent number of gills but the size of them was really small compaired to years past. I guess all the fishing pressure is taking its toll. Didnt really feel like cleaning fish anyway. Does anyone know how the fishing is on lake Wazeda at McMullen county park??

My brother and I fished a cranberry flowage in the Warrens area yesterday. A substantial number of norhterns have dies off and are sitting on the bank making for a feast for the eagles and racoons. Caught some crappies, perch, bluegills, bullheads, but no game fish. A wonderful day to be out. Never saw another fisherman in the 90 degree heat.
