Out this afternoon 3-7:30. Fished leeches on light lindy rigs and split shot rigs.

Caught 16 LM (12-15") plus some bonus bluegills, green sunfish and even a 10" yellow perch. Bass were tight to weeds, and getting them to bite took some patience, but we fished from anchor and slowly dragged our live bait rigs to get bites.

Nice night to be out. Water was 74 when we pulled out at 8pm

Went out to Ashippun last night to try it one last time for the year. It was VERY warm out. The landing to get on was ok. You just have to walk to the end of the pier to be safe. The ice was still very thick and solid. Had no worries of breaking through. There was still a solid 13". As for the fishing, it was very slow. Didn't mark anything really at all. No gills, crappies, or anything. All I caught was one nice 10" perch and maybe fifteen 4 inchers. Didn't keep any. No one else looked like they were catching anything either. Lots of standing around and hole hopping. Good luck to anyone looking to try fishing it one last time. Stay safe. ~TT

Plenty of ATVs bombing all over the place on weekends. To be honest the lake is very easy to walk right now, ATVs have created paths to just about any spot on the lake. You can walk to the far side of the lake in less than 15 minutes. Probably gonna be a rough week of fishing with this stupid weather....

Went to a Waukesha county lake at 7 am and the launch parking lot was full, so I went to Ash, which has a big lot at the launch. It was a zoo there. By mid morning, people were double parking and sticking their trucks anyplace they could fit em outside the normal spots. ATV's zooming all over the lake. Thought I was at Fox Lake for awhile.

Fishing report- was there from 8-5 by myself, drilled 30+ holes and jigged like crazy, with 2 tip downs out with small flatheads on. The bite was tough. ATV Nation had a jillion tip ups out, and nothing was happening for them. I had gone out to the 28-30 ft depths where the fish hang out this time of the year, drilled one hole, and found a big school of around 50 gills right off. Getting them to bite was another matter. Kept moving and trying different lures. Smaller perch kept robbing all my flatheads, but I did get two big gills and a crappie on the minnows. After 6 hrs I had iced 13 gills and one crappie. Then finally, at 2 pm, and after 30 holes, I dropped my transducer down and there was a giant christmas tree of fish down there. Put the camera down to see what was there. A couple crappie were at the top, and then around 200 gills from 10 to 25 ft down. Surprisingly, right on the bottom were several crappie hanging out with the perch. For a change, these fish actually wanted to feed.

So a poor day ended up being a good day, ended up catching 45 gills, 6 crappie and 5 perch. Kept 5 crappie and a perch for supper
