1Forda_road - not sure why you think it is to early to start trolling for walleye out here.  It is very rare I will pick up a jigging stick on Wissota.  I troll from opener until ice on.  Your speed and lure selection may change with the season, but you can find fish willing to snap any time of the day.  I was out at sun up last Sunday and found fish in the river in about 13fow many suspended off the humps over deep water.  Mixed bag of walleye and crappie.  Action really started to pick up from 9:30-11:30.  Not sure if is was location or a feeding window, but it was hot and heavy.  I like to run #5,#6,#7 shad raps this time of year.  Color doesn't matter much as long as the lure is running right in front of their face.  A lot of smaller fish and slot fish with one over 18.  Hard to find those 13 3/4 eaters as most of the fish in the system are now over 14 inches or way to small to keep.  As always, let the big ones swim.  I love this time of year!

Fished for cats 2-6 on Saturday and did not catch a thing.  Dragged jig & crawler along the bottom and under slip bottoms at varying depths.  tried plain hooks too, still nothing.  Tried deep and shallo from the Hwy K. bridge up past the State Beach to the main  lake.

Yeah Airborne, weekdays are quiet. Weekends and holidays are a mess here. It'll slow down a lot after labor day.

Made it out on Lake Wissota for the first time today. This is a very nice body of water you folk have here. Lots of interesting structure, cribs, and beautiful shorelines. 


We started out looking for crappie. That was a fail, but we did get on 10 inch walleye. Fished for about three hours in the norther reaches of the Chippewa river.


As the day progressed we switched over to muskie casting. My wife is just starting out and we are taking a trip to LOTW in three weeks... so it was time to get her come casts in. She did great and even moved a decent fish. 


Looking forward to getting out on the lake again; and on a a day that isn't a holiday, isn't a weekend, and hopefully won't be so busy.

All in all been a beautiful couple of days with very low boat traffic. Water temps have dropped and the lake is cleaning up a ton. Muskie have been feast or famine still, but have been seeing some quality fish. Not seeing many up shallow, have moved a few on rubber so thats a good sign moving forward. Have been seeing crappie in alot of the cribs. Most action in the shallows have been from smallmouth and catfish. I know im going to regret saying this, but we have not caught a pike in quite awhile!

I’ve had some good success catching cats over by the golf course. About 20-25ft of water I was in.Night Crawler will do the trick.  Good Luck!

Thanks Mavereick, and everyone else.  Even my wife is enthused to go out with us.  Something she's never done but loves it when I make smoked cats.

Sadly this lake has become a catfish lake. Here are some spots you could fish and catch cats using slip bobbers and a hunk of crawler. But I catch them no matter what I'm using besides plastics. Depths are anywhere between 16 and 22 feet of water and a chartreuse jig underneath and you should have some good luck. The small ones do taste great. I personally like the channels between 12 and 17 inches.  I just wish I could find them ice fishing. The southeastern spot on the map (smallest circle I drew) is in front of a "for sale" sign.

Lake Wissota state park launch is the closest decent launch if you go to the left is a deep hole and going right can fish the river channel all the way to main lake, it's been a while but I was trolling the yellow river by the main lake with cranks for eyes all I could catch was 3 to 5lb channel cats.
