Got out on open water in Waukesha county for a couple hrs today. LaBelle and Upper Oconomowoc were also open, that I saw
Southeast Wisconsin Area Lakes, Rivers and Ponds
Nice mess of boofellows. Those are native unlike the common carp that came from Germany. Those and quill back carp. I am told they eat way better than common carp. Never tried one though. Anyone have any testimony for eating them?
Fished for an hour before work tonight, 7 foot medium spinning rod with a rapala xr6 was all I had with me. Water has cleared on stretch or Rock River I am fishing, it is still high (perfect level) ended up with 1 pike and 3 walleye, caught them all in first 15 casts and then not another bite. Water temp was 39.7. Shined the area real quick when I was done and was a good sized eye sitting shallow on some rocks, waited 5 minutes and worked that spot to no avail. Shined the area again and fish was still there, must have already filled up for the night.
