Hey there fellow anglers, no fishing report here just an idea to throw around....
I am thinking of hosting a bass tournament on the Mondeaux: 3 bass limit (not 5 due to the size of the lake and the draw down, to protect fish) with 2 pike.
$50-75 ish entry fee and 19 Boat field, team of "2" tournament, 100% payout
???Let me know what you guys think?????
Great body of water for bass and pike, think this would be a fun day!!!
Went up a few weekends ago targeting northern and couldn't hook into any. Hoping for any suggestions, I'm throwing a daredevil and fire tiger spoons 5/8 ounce and didn't see any action. I get slammed using these for pike down in waupaca, but nothing up here. Always heard stories of family getting slammed with pike and I hadn't got anything. Any suggestions for Mondeaux let me know.
Here's the best advice I can give: concentrate on the shorline brush piles and logs and you'll get action. From what I have been told, but have not seen, is there was a significant bluegill die-off. Again, I am only going by what I was told.
Headed to Mondeaux in a week with my 10-year old for some camping and fishing (in a canoe). Any words of wisdom or advice for a rookie on this body of water? Looking for a few eaters and enough to catch to kill time for a couple of days.

Didn't see anything dead/floating however we launched Saturday at the Lodge targeing shorelines for gills but will say this: We pounded the shores hitting brush etc. all the way South, past Picnic Point, down to the island South of it. Nothing doing on crappie minnows and crawlers.
but if you spend an amount of time on this lake you know that the gills coud use a thinning out anyway. FAR too many in the 3-5" range.
