MOON PHASE (8%)
Waning Crescent

Went out in the kayay on thur the 14th. Weather was cool and it was foggy until the sun burned thro late morning. 

Had a few small northerns and lost a huge one that didn't realize he was hooked until he got next to the kayak and did the northern boot scoot and jiggy and got off. 

The large dead animal floating by the island may have put a damper on the deep hole. Hopefully that bloating critter finds his way somewhere else. 

Didnt paddle thro the cat tails this time around. Got lost in there last year and had a difficult time finding my way out. Will get in there soon to get after those monster bass hiding.

Fishing was a bit better than last time I was out in the kayak, got 2 ok bass and 5 small pike.

Missed a few and had a couple of follow backs.

One bass fell for a Rapala bx minnow in perch pattern, other bass hit a manns shallow crankbait.

All pike were on Mann's crankbaits.

Water temp was 74

Has anyone been out at big M? The fishing should pick up as the high pressure is starting to wane, I went to a lake by my house and the deeper water has held temp way better than big M, 70 degrees compared to 62 degrees for big M.  I'm slowly getting a handle on this lake, the shallow water warms quickly but also cools quickly, and combined with pressure changes can make for great or really bad fishing.

I did well on my other lake, got 8 total and one 19" 4lber.  

If you want to see pics go to the South East Wisconsin lakes and ponds thread.

Snorkel  ....  

panfish have been tough this fall   in the past a normal catch and release day for me was usually 30-40 gills/sunnies/perch ... today... maybe 15 gills...1 nice sunny ... 2 small perch .. little bass up to 12"s were active and wouldn't leave my triple tip tails alone.. 13 bass... no  northerns today however I did have one on briefly that I seen just a snake..  I was fishing the main lake in deeper open water both north and south.. no Bass Bay today at all.

Still a  GREAT day of casting UL 1/64th oz. jig with a  gold fleck 2" triple tip tail.  white also produced a few fish

Question for the people that have been fishing big M for awhile, where are all the panfish?   On other lakes you almost always see bluegills etc following a crankbait back, but I have not seen this on big M the 5 or 6 times I have fished it.  

Actually I have not noticed many bait fish swimming around either.

MOON PHASE (86%)
Waning Gibbous

Super slow morning, missed 3 or 4 and got 1 tiny pike and a dink bass.

Went down by the dredged island directly south of boxhorn launch and found the hole which was about 20 feet deep, fished the edges of that and nothing, also marked no fish in hole.

I was very surprised at how deep the hole on the north side of the island was, and had read posts were people had mentioned it but never thought it was 20 feet :-)

There was some interesting action at the boat launch, someone tried to launch a huge pontoon boat with a huge outboard, first they tried the right side, then the left and of course the 2 feet of water was not enough.

Water did not appear to be up at all from little M drawdown, might have even been lower than last week.

Wind was calm from 6:30am until 9am then got pretty windy and only had the dink bass after that.

I tried just about every lure I had with me including inline spinners, swimbaits, sub surface and surface crankbaits, lipless cranks etc only thing I didn't try was a spinner bait.

The ones I missed were just swiping at the lures and just couldn't hook up.

Igor,

1.7 million walleye fry were stocked back in 97, so it's probable a few are in there and probably some come from little Muskego during draw downs.

I have caught a few from Big Muskego and the creek (pilak) in the past 5 or so years that are being questioned by other lakelinkers along with smallmouths caught from the creek and Big Muskego. Which according to DNR Mr Blain states are related to Big Muskego.

With regards to the walleye comments, I caught a 15" straight out from Boxhorn's in the main channel around 2006 ice fishing.  We have a photo of it floating around somewhere.
