I had a question I'm new to the Eau Claire area. By the maps I see there is a boat launch out at Old Abe Lake. Is there a dock as well. That would make it easier for me and the wife and daughter to get in and out of the boat. Thank You for your time

me, my boy, and three buddies smallmouth fishing. We managed to land a 2 lb, a 1 lb 10 oz, and a small 12" smallmouth. Had run ins 2x with a 40+ inch musky. Caught some pike. Not a fantastic day, felt like a typical opening weekend day in a normal year. water temp 52 degress at 7 am. 56 degrees at noon. Should get better in the next week. Water clarity and current pretty close to normal. Water dropped a lot while fishing. Big Smile

hit the shallow bays for smallmouth on Monday mid day. Conditions were great weather-wise, but apparently the bass disliked the poor water clarity from the heavy run-off. This is usually the best time of the year for numbers of decent sized bass here, and instead all I hooked into was a 12" pike that threw the hook at the side of the kayak. The next two hours was worthless. The weather was great, and the heavy current created some very neat eddies and slack waters to fish. They had to be there, either they couldnt see the lures or they were shut down. Loud and bright and quiet and subtle and every thing in between did not get them going. Crying

on 6/25/2013 We were fishing without a bite all day long only to catch a MUDPUPPY. Yes a mudpuppy in old abe lake. They are endangered so you must release them back. Wow what a catch.

I wish we had a camera!

As far as sturgeon fishing I have fished it pretty hard Labor Day weekend the last three years. Get tired of all the catfish when trying to catch sturgeon. Have not hooked into one in fall. Have gotten two in the spring. Also fished a good part of October last year for walleyes but the 80 degree temps really made it tough. I do very well on walleyes till the end of July then have a tougher time and switch to smallmouths. I do not fish the lower half very often as I have no interest in dealing with boat traffic.

Fished tip-ups Sat. night. Had to do a lot of hiking to get to our spot because of the poor ice conditions. Highly variable thickness depending on how close to a current area. We did really well on a 8 foot bar. Landed 17, 21, and 25 inch walleye and some smaller ones also. Because of the distance we had to walk I only carried my 4 inch hand auger. The 25 was a fat female and got stuck in the hole with 6 inches of the fish above ice. I had to really pull on the gaff to get it up. My wife broke off a huge one that we could not even get the head started in the hole. I am guessing 30 inches easy. Pictures attached of the 21 and 25.
