Go to Monona Bay for panfish. They're plentyful.

catching fish on the madison chain is pretty easy...walk into D&S bait...spend a bunch of $$$ on whatever Gene tells you to buy....and go fish wherever he tells you to fish.

Can anyone share any tips about Monona? Not looking for a secret spot, just some general pointers. I'm a college student from New York and I have absolutely no idea where to start looking for panfish.

Late report. This was a week or two back off Olin. 1 flag. 1 fish. Wasn't hooked great so she came home for dinner. Didn't mark any panfish and covered quite a bit of ground.

I'm new to fishing Monona this year and I've found everything but the perch. Tryed off olbrich in about 20 to 30 fow, no luck. Tried. Sqwua bay tried that pretty much everywhere and a few other spots, and all I can find is bluegills, or crappies. Any help would be appreciated!

I have not fished Monona much (successfully). Any tips on wrestling a pike from its depths? Also, anyone have any luck ice fishing with lipless crankbaits? I've heard about and only tried it once.

Went out on Olbrich park last night and fished the 10 to15 foot range and did not catch any perch. Here is some perch fishing footage from a few weeks ago here
