Been out but haven't posted for a while. Gills were going good for the week after Labor Day. Hit a lull the next ten days. Was thinking they were going into their fall hibernation but the gills have picked up the last week. Still catching keepers but a lot more small ones which is typical for this time of year. Picking up a few crappies but like always they are hit or miss. 

Was out today and caught some. Should of stayed but the Vikings and Packers were both on TV. Like I said. Should of stayed fishing. 

Lots of forage in the lake right now. Minnows every where. Another good thing about No-Wake is the fish population. Think of all the big gills that are still swimming because of it. Rat.

My phone call confirmed what their website says. Supposedly they were reassessing things this afternoon but doesn't seem to have changed. I guess people are still launching though without being ticketed though so... Lottes is a Monona park.

There were no signs saying closed or barricades in place?  What launch was it?  A "city launch" is pretty vague.

Which launch did you use? Monona City Launch or Madison City Launch?

I would guess the Madison City launches would be less enforced than the Monona launches. For example, Lottes launch has barricades preventing a launch. 


The City of Madison's designated launch locations include:

Law / Olbrich / Olin 

The City of Monona designated launch locations include:

Lottes Park / Tonyawatha Park  / Winnequah Trail

Used a city launch next to a DC Sheriff who in the patrol boat Wednesday and nothing was said and no ticket on the truck when I got back. I THINK we are in the clear.

Just gotta go and chance it. The city hasn't been on the same page during the recent flooding.
