I would like a report from either O'Learys or the barge that is there.
The bluegill bite has been good in the backwaters for a few weeks. wax worms were good on black jigs near the bottom in Tippy's and the sand pit at the south end of Frentress lake. my buddies did better for the larger gills with nightcrawlers on Saturday in Tippy's. Green Lake in nine mile island is another good spot. Dipping your jigs in the tightest brush yields the biggest.There are always a lot of bluegill back in the marina where the silver eagle use to be. Putting in at Massey Station saves the run down from Dubuque. The marinas around Dubuque should be going also.
Not many crappies being caught in the lakes which tells me they should be on brush just outside the lakes in a little current yet. Good luck and I will be chasing them Sunday with you.
Hey J.D. Knight,
Hey looking to get out this weekend despite the wind. Was probably thinking going for bluegills since we didn't want to mess with the channel for walleyes with the wind. Any hints to give? Are the panfish deep? By structure? Any help is appreciated.
