Hey All,

I typically fish Oconomowoc  but the fishing has been tough and the wife is looking to fish different water. Been a couple years since I was on Okauchee and then I was targeting Musky. Anyway, she likes to catch bass so I am seeking some general tips for bass action We are a CPR boat for anything other than a few Bluegills now and then.

Water is pretty shitty. Lot less visibility than usual and tons of particles in the water. Saw more dead fish than live ones. 

Only stayed for an hour before picking up and heading to another local lake. Only got one decent bass in 14fow carolina rigging a drop off.

If he eats them, who cares. As long as they don't go to waste. 

Pulling out smaller fish helps the bigger ones get bigger. Too many dinks means not enough food for them to all get big. Same with bass and pike.

The wife and I went on Saturday 6-9-18 and put in the public landing. Never turned on the big motor. Turned into the little creek to the left of the ramp, went down to the first point on the right, anchored and for the next three hours, we slayed the bream and blue gill. Just as soon as the line hit the water, pretty nice size ones also. So, this was my first trip to the lake but WILL NOT be my last. The only thing that seems to be VERY true from all I've heard about that lake is the joy riders, jets skis and pontoon boats are EVERYWHERE.

Lot's of dead fish. Big blue gills floating. Reports of other dead fish, couple muskies. Something about an upstream pollutant in the river running in to the lake. Anyone else hear anything?

Hit Okauchee for a few hours this aft/eve.  Just threw small baits at docks and shallow weed lines. Caught 2 decent LMB and several small northern pike. A bluegill and a rock bass also hit my spinner. Lol.  Fun day to be out. I did throw for muskies just a little. Nothing there. I know this lake can be good for larger muskies later in the season!

Definitely not a Walleye lake. They are in there but not that many.
