Anyone have any info on where the cats are biting on the lake?

Just a reminder to the irregulars that Wissota is a reservoir and there's alot of junk floating around out there.  I hit a wooden palette floating mostly below the surface going full speed today in the middle of the main lake.  The impact was enough to kick me out of my seat.  Fortunately there's no serious damage.

Last couple of days we boated multiple fish. Monday we boated two muskies in a few hour stretch, and missed another one. All fish were on blades. Musky freak bucktails, and rabska tails were what they were after. Water has come back down and things are seemingly back to normal. All fish came off of weeds.

Is the rod and gun club landing still open for use?

High water made for some difficult fishing last night.  The upper Chippewa River was not fishable unless you were pitching plastic in the trees.  Very dirty water near Jim Falls and very high flow.  Most of the river all the way to the golf course is muddy with lots of debris.  The mud lines continue out to the big lake flowing from the Chippewa and Yellow to the dam.  Many fish have been pushed out to the big lake and were catchable last night on the troll as long as you could find clean water.  Walleye League average ran very small last night but the guys who found fish seemed to catch good numbers.  Anglers reported long line and leadcore trolling worked well along with slowdeath crawlers and pitching jig and minnows.  Hard to say what the mid summer bite will do but I would like to think this high water will change your typical Wissota summer fishing patterns and locations.

Whell...we didn't have a great outing last night. Water was high as expected, over several docks including the little lake landing. Mainly targeted weeds and a couple of deeper points with very little for action. We caught 2 glimpses of muskies on a Raising Caine custom lure and a pacemaker. Once water levels drop off we should see a more consistent bite come back

Fished the yellow river by the swim area targeting cats on sat morning before the rain and only boated 1 cat with only 2 other bites one of which was a turtle, we have had good luck by the swim area last year but not so much on sat, any Intel on another place to fish cats? Trying to help put a dent in the population

Wow some tough conditions over the weekend. I feel like all we did was get chased around by storms. All in all was not a bad weekend to be on the water at times, had activity from a few muskies and pike. Smallmouth were relating to deeper timber. Starting to see a lot of walleye/perch stacked up in the main lake, some pretty impressive screenshots with the mega imaging that I will have to post later. Hopefully a little cooler weather the next few days will get some big fish to shake loose. Most of our activity is still coming on bucktails and spinnerbaits. Had a few smaller fish getting squirly on topwater. 

Good luck out there!

Bassman- I'm sure everyone has their own idea of what moon bay is, but I would consider it anything from the state park landing up to the K bridge, I'm not sure that there is a pinpoint location. Hope that helps.


On a fishing report note, we got one small musky on a bucktail this afternoon without much else for activity but we weren't able to fish the last bit of daylight or after dark at all. I have been talking to several people at landings across the lake that are all catching cats on a regular basis, some targeting them, some not
