Spent 3 hrs, noon til 3pm, in the bay jigging and tip-up fishing, without a single bite. I marked several fish on the Marcum, but couldn't do anything to get a nibble. Saw 2 other guys pull in smallish northerns. I was in 6-8 fow.
Fish Lake, Dane County
It's trolling motor only but I've seen 18ft bass boats put in just fine with a pickup truck. Don't go straight out when docking. As you back up hang it left and put the boat in southward, pretty much parallel with the road. Make sure the motor is trimmed up prior to launch. Plan on getting your feet wet!
In case you haven't heard the rumor. The DNR plans on poisoning Mud Lake this winter. The only hold up is the rumor of a culvert still below lake level conecting the two bodies of water where poison will leak into fish lake. I've heard this from two good sources, maybee it's a good thing to happen???
