Just a bit of information for the Up River Lakes Spearing. The registration station on the east shore of Lake Poygan has been moved to Boom Bar Bay and Grill.

The DNR sturgeon biologist just reported that Lake Winnebago visibility is 5-7 feet, depending on what part of the lake you are fishing. Warm December and late freeze-up are to blame. Good luck and be careful out there.

Typically on high shad years more sturgeon can be found in shallower bay areas feeding on dead or dying shad. deffinily not a 100% but it may lead a few to more success assuming poor clarity this season. I am personally throwing in the towel on Winnebago this year and will settle for sitting with my father on lake poygan. there is a lot of very clear water out there. gin clear on far west end...not sure if the fish are in that spot thou. good luck out there. remember we will see very little new ice formed from hear on out what we have now will be what we have for the spearing season. im out. silverfish.

Switching between Weather.com and Lake-Link is driving me nuts, I want to spear the beast this year. Will it happen?

Nature Boy all depends on the year... dip dip and dip some more and see what you get. I have gone to a spot one year and dipped as many as 75 worms then came back to the some spot next year for find nothing but leaves and bits of clam shells. Some years after dipping a hundred or more holes scouting before a season the best we found might have been 10. and that's going from one end of the lake to the other and side to side. Let you scouting guide you.

gotacarp--Here you go. Very basic construction actually. Simply duct or electrical tape a standard ice skimmer onto the butt section of a rod you broke while fighting a big fish during open water season, or as in my case, slammed the matched pair of $300 apiece gloomis rods in the truck door by accident. It's an excellent way to repurpose expensive broken equipment.

Cover the skimmer with an old nylon stocking that most everbuddy has lying around. Be sure to wear a shoulder length rubber trapping or deer gutting glove so your arm stays dry when you reach down into the hole to get as much extension to the lake bottom as possible.

I've done pretty well dipping redworms with this set-up. Hope this helps.

Seriously though. Bloodworms are a very big part of the diets of dino-fish & perch as well. Find the food you find the fish.

Anywhere between 974 and 1337 is considered a successful dip.

I have a question about dipping for red worms. We have a 6 inch diameter dipper. What would be considered a good dip count?
