Wow did that turn green quick.Of course with no wind it looked even worse. Better call the Menomonie mayor to bring his scumsucker 2000 over and clean it up. But we managed a few crappies,couple gils, couple perch,one nice one, and a 17" eye. Had a nicer pike on til he rolled on the surface and spit it. Right to the carwash on the way home.

Yeah, it's definitely been a struggle.

This lake has been terrible for me this year. We've tried everything under the sun to find fish with little to no luck.

The water is a cloudy light brown. Nice day to fish with the beach being closed. No skiers or jet skis. Just a few fishing. Got 8 or 9 crappies. Kept 5. A few gils. Kept 1. No eyes this time. Had something nice on drifting and unhooked after a couple head shakes. Beautiful day.

It HAS been a crazy year for me.  More walleyes (no keepers yet) this year than ever, and can't hardly buy a crappie.  Perch disappeared.

I used to have this lake figured out, regardless of jetskis/tubers/sprites, now it's got ME figured out!!!  They must have painted an X on the underside of my boat..........

Oh and 2 weeks ago it looked like this. 2 crappie, 1 perch, 1 bullhead and 1 redhorse. Unusual.

Fishing's definitely been slow. Even in the spring my crappie numbers were way down. Hardly ever see a perch or gil. Still get 2-3 eyes most times.

FYI the fish haven’t left... Patterns have changed a little bit! I’ve noticed over the years ppl don’t want the public to catch all “there” fish.  That’s why not many share info on catching walleye/panfish etc... Sometimes you need to go back to the basics. My buddy 30 years ago plus helped me put more fish in the boat & on the Ice by mixing it up! Granted some days are better than others but when you find em everyone everyone wants to be filled in! Some of the best fishing is just around the corner!! Stay positive.

Pimply before last night i had 2 bites and got one bullhead my last 3 trips. Early spring was very very good to me. got the biggest crappie and walleyes ive ever caught on altoona. starting on memorial day things simply died. Last night i went late and fished the dusk/night bite. i got a couple eyes 1 bullhead and i few little crappie. one eye was roughly 19-20 inches. broke off on the lift...(crappy knot im thinking). Im not sure if its been this weather or the insane recreational traffic. something is off for sure. I couldnt believe the number of people pulling little kids on skis, tubes etc with the ban in place.
