MOON PHASE (85%)
Waxing Gibbous

CONDITIONS
Sunny

AIR TEMP
41° - 45° F

WATER TEMP
46° - 50° F

Got out sunday but later than I wanted and not for too long.  Fished roughly 215-345ish in the afternoon.


The winds had shifted to southeast so we didnt go out too far, set up in 35 fow and headed towards the filter getting to about 50 fow.  Went 1/1 with a 2.3# brown on 8 color lead core - blue flounder pounder spoon. 

Fish hit in around 50 fow.  Rough water pushed us off but got the gf her first trout at least.


Thanks for the advice all.

For the DNR rule change on lake trout, here is the document detailing the  proposed rule change (FH-21-16):

http://dnr.wi.gov/About/NRB/2016/December/12-16-2C1.pdf

And here's the minutes of the January 2017 meeting stating it was approved (page 8):

Also found a news release that summarizes the changes:

Fish Dr. - Temp as of Sunday in the harbor was 49.7 on the surface.  Didn't have the depth raider to give you temp readings under the surface.

It's an emergency rule that sounds like it'll expire 12/31/17. Not sure if it'll be permanent or not. Can keep 5, catch and keep them for rest of the year. Get some greasers!

Where are people getting information about the lake trout season staying open. I have heard it from several people, including Gillespie. I have check with the DNR through the info hotline, and with wardens, and they have told me that there has been no change in the rules. Does anyone have a DNR link that shows this new regulation.

Browns are in and around the harbors as well as some rainbows. Lakers are shallow this time of year too, but water in most areas was dirty yesterday still from the SE blow on Thursday. It should move out today or by tomorrow.
