MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

CONDITIONS
Partly Sunny

AIR TEMP
56° - 60° F

WATER TEMP
61° - 65° F

Went out opening day and hit the water at 5:45am. Water temp was 64f. Clear water with sinks caught most of the morning at 8ft deep on plastics. Had a pike follow my chatterbait but everything was caught on drop shot. Need some warmer temps for some decent action. Big fish of the day was my 13" 1.25 LB. Sad.

Read the WDNR rule book.You can not use any lure that would target game fish. Like a 3/8 oz spinner bait or a 3" rapala. If you are fishing for panfish with panfish lure and you catch a bass, thats ok as long as you throw it back. But if you are the spinner bait it not.

Thanks for the replies, I missed the panfish exception. So does that mean its basically catch and release for game fish? As in what I used for crappie works just as good for bass and several others so am I still good as long as I just throw back whats out of season or do I need to watch what I am using so as not to target game fish?

Correct, only panfish and rivers are open. Rivers to the first dam on Michigan tributaries.

Game fish season is closed until the first week of May. Panfish season is open year round. Download the Wisconsin fishing handbook to see the regulations for the state. Different regulations in different areas.

Someone correct me if I am wrong but I was under the impression that fishing season is closed until May 5th but when we drove by a few days ago I saw two boats out with poles in the water. Am I missing something?

Silver lake has been ice free for about a week now.

Sorry for late post,  went out on Sat the 24th and ice was still 10 inches every where I drilled out in middle of lake. Was tricky getting out as a lot of the shoreline is melting.  Had to use a ramp about 3 feet long to get out to ice unless you don't mind getting wet. Caught a bunch of decent size gills and perch.  Stay safe people,  ice will be gone soon.????
