Camped at goose island and fished from there.  Got into the bluegills and perch saturday.  3 fow no current with weeds.  Found some logs over rocks in same depth and hammered the gills.  Was awesome to have a perch fry Saturday night.

Found the crappies sunday in an eddy by a weed line.  5 feet down over 14 fow.  Bare tube killed em on a bobber poppin it back.  Spectacular weekend on a beautiful river.

Duck hunting is hit or miss if your not real familiar with the area. You can put in at the south end of goose island. Or stoddard. But be prepared to get up early to compete with all the other hunters. Pool 8 is one of the busier pools for duck hunting.

Hey sorry to ask but I'm thinking of coming from milwaukee to try duck hunting out on the miss....any tips on where to go and launch?  I don't want your hot spot  just general area and is it better early or late season?  Thanks

Water levels have gone down and the flow is much cleaner, resulting in some great fishing!!   Walleye are still biting on live bait and the big ones are definitely hungry!    Call Captain Mike for the best available dates

Check out these big walleye

On the water 9 am, fished wing dams, main channel.  6 1/2 to 7 foot medium action rod,  fast tip.   10 lb. suffix braid, 6 lb. fluorocarbon leader, 1/2 oz. slip sinker, barrel swivel, 3 ft. leader to #6 walleye hook.  Crawlers  and leeches.  Each wing dam has a flow pattern at the tip.  Anchored upstream and to the inside of the flow, and walked the bait downstream to the tip of the wing dam.  20-30 minutes per stop, all dams held fish.  5 walleye to the boat, largest  29 inches, 6 smallmouth bass to 16 inches, many bluegills, 2 @ 9 inches, and 1, 4 lb. drum.  The action slowed about noon, went looking for crappies holding to structure.  They were there, ultra lite rods, 1/16 oz. jig, 1 inch Gulp Alive minnow, casting to structure and retrieve.  20 + crappie in a 45 minute period.  The boat traffic became a bit much, off the water @ 1:30pm.  This pool is at its prime for summer time fishing.  Wife's personal best was the 29 inch walleye.

Hey Char,

That goat is a hog!  What a cow!

Fishin was pretty weak for us this weekend, too, but the only bite we got was a 26" eye.  Water went back down quickly, now all we need is for it to clear up.  Hope all who suffered flood/wind damage are doing OK.
