What’s the current condition of the ice here?
MOON PHASE (12%)
I wouldn’t plan on taking any family out anywhere in south Wisco... even Madison has virtually no fishable ice... not even Monona Bay. I would wait awhile to get your family on some solid ice.... tight lines
If you live around the Delavan, Lake Geneva, Elkhorn areas and use the BG Road launch for your small boat you better get to the meeting posted on Delavan Lakes thread! Because I can promise without a 100+ people there to explain why it needs to stay open it will be closed.
Daruoho, we used 25# and 30# braid with 50# test leaders. Trolling. Two club members were up there today, 11:30 to 6:30; 96 pike. Weather conditions have been near perfect the last few days, i.e. stable. True there was no great size to 'em, but still a lot of fun. We don't net, by the way, bring the fish into the boat and remove the lure with long nose pliers and go. Takes about 30 seconds instead of messing with a net.
Bass Abductor, Buck probably is smiling up in Heaven; probably at the skeptics. You need to break out those spoonplugs and learn to use 'em. You need to watch some of the videos of guys at Lake St Claire catching 100 small mouth a day. Check out Youtube for spoonplugger videos. Take a look at the Spoonplugger forum http://spoonplug.net/phpBB3/
Non-sense! I did the math...ifyou were both seeing triple vision that would mean one actual fish per 6 caught. That would mean you still caught 30 fish, and I am not buying that either. But if you actually did-you carry the record!
