Tons of shad out there!
Fished solo from 2 til sunset today. Went 1 for 4 on tipups. 1 snake pike. Caught a nicer pike, big gills, small crappies, and dink perch on gold kastmaster and waxie. All released. Nice day.
Me and some of my buddys went out near herb and dolly smith park on saturday and caught around 200 perch in 6 hours. I was using a small jig head with a plastic tail and just alowley jigging it. We had 5 tip ups out but none of them went off.
Little butte can be hard to icefish as it has decent current and isnt very safe in many places. The lock is usually the only safe area. Honestly, winnebago is the better choice and its only a 15 minute drive. Then you got poygan not far also. A couple extra minutes but fishing can be just so much better and safer.
new to the Menasha area have been following the lake Winnebago thread but seems like everyone on there is fishing around Oshkosh. wondering if any fishermen doing both this lake and Winnebago. trying to start mapping out a plan of attack for the ice but there is so much water. trying to get a little guidance to start the journey and not waste so much time. any help is greatly appreciated.
