Fox River Oshkosh - Rainbow Park
MOON PHASE (56%)
66° - 70° F
Late report from Saturday. Started out fishing from shore by 41 at the first bridge across from Skipper Buds. That is a LONG walk from where you park. At least I was rewarded with a 20" walleye on a red fly as part of a jig/fly three way rig. Hard to tell if it had a minnow on at the time as I'd been losing a number of them on the cast or retrieve. Also had something big on for a few seconds but it came unbuttoned without seeing it.
Moved over to Rainbow Park and fished the T docks. Wound up with a nice 20" channel cat, but that was it. Pink fly with a pencil weight three way rig. Again, hard to know if minnow was still there or not.
I find the pic of the walleye to be funny because it looks like it's ready to chomp down on my dog's nose lol
56° - 60° F
Spent a couple of wet hours on the river. The wind was blowing opposite of the current and the fish were definetly not in a cooperative mood. One small ( 12") catfish. Tried lots of different tackle and baits, but nothing seemed to work. But, at least I got to spend some time with my son. So, it was still a good day.
Its over, nothing but sheephead above and below the surface. Might as well sell the damn rods and go to the bar. Every other cast smelly azz parasite ridden goats. Them things got more tumors and who-know-whats hangin off them. Couldn't possibly be enuff of them things floating. Sheesh.
