no muskies here.
Good morninge everyone! Here are the results from the Team Walleyeguys Outdoors 5th stop on Petenwell this past Saturday. There were hundreds of fish caught by the participants. Matt and Jason from the Petenwell Sport Shop got big fish of the day coming in just over 27 inches. After looking over score cards it looks like about every boat had at least one limit of legal eyes. There were also a lot of crappie caught too! I know that myself, we boated at least 60 walleyes. Trolling natural colored Shad Raps and Flicker Shads in 4 to 9 fow was ticket. We ran baits right in the mud most of the day. A lot of baits were claimed by the stumps but it was worth it for a 2nd place finish against some very good anglers!
For those that missed out, we plan on coming back to the Petenwell Flowage next year. We also have two more events this year left on the schedule. Big Green Lake in September and the Mississippi River in La Crosse on Halloween weekend.
Fished Friday, Saturday and Sunday pulling cranks in the morning on Friday and Saturday and between noon and 4 on Sunday with the wife and kids. Friday and Saturday was really windy and boat control was rough. Caught a lot of fish with biggest being only 24. Also caught my finger. Buried the treble right to the bend in the hook. Ouch! 3rd time thats happened this year. Anyways, lots of keepers over the weekend. I kept a few to try and restock my freezer since my parents cleaned me out last weekend when they came to visit. Fish didnt seem to be any where specific. All over the channel edges and they were biting all day. Any word on the tournament over the weekend? Results and weights? I wanted to fish it but finding a partner that didnt work or wanted to dedicate time and money was nonexistent.
Tried Shiver minnows on Sunday for about a half hour. Something new that has become popular in Michigan as well as Green Bay. Managed a few short eyes and white bass. Man is this a blast. When a fish hits it, you feel like you hooked a tree at first. Kind of nice to break up the trolling a bit. Ill be out again this morning if there is no lightning and might try shivering for a while and then switch over to trolling. Good luck to all

You could check out the cabins at Bay Rest. There is the Petenwell County Park right up the road that also has a nice campground with the best launch on the lake with a fish cleaning station. Otherwise you could travel to Necedah, Adams, or Wisconsin Rapids to stay.
