Hello All,

I am new to Lake Link, I am trying to connect to the fishing community. I am on the board of directors for Friends of Lake Wingra. We make effort to promote a healthy watershed and improve lake quality. 

I would really appreciate any bumps you can do to help promote our lake when fishing, especially if taking pictures of fish on social media. Can you please use the hashtag #fishwingra ? And or #folw ? 

For or more info on us, please check out our website : www.lakewingra.org

we will be hosting a tourney in spring 2019 and could use some experienced anglers to help promote. We are a not-for-profit conservation organization so I couldn’t pay anyone. The prizes are still in the air, more info to come. 

Thanks for your time and sorry for the ramble - tight lines,

Johnny

I don’t Muskie fish but my understanding was when the water temp got into the upper 70’s you don’t fish them.  I find it strange people are targeting them knowing it could harm them.  Why would he be targeting them to video knowing this?

Please practice safe long releases.  Let the fish swim away on its own. Also proper holding technique. I hold my breath when I take a fish out of the water and always have hook cutters at my reach a fish shouldn’t be out of the water longer than you hold your own breath. Take hooks out in the net and never let them flop around in the bottom of the boat, losing that slime is their protection.

Yes.  That’s what I meant.  Especially when caught deep, the acid built up during the fight (like our adrenaline) can prove fatal for big fish species like esox, but can include fish like walleyes as well.  Wingra isn’t deep, but does heat up quicker than Monona during heat waves.  These last 2 weeks cooled things off enough, but his post was when it was quite steamy out, like it will be this coming week.  Not bashing Hans, but I wanted others to be aware of the cause for concern.

tight lines,

fs

I think what he is saying is that when you pull a fish that is big in hot water and fight it and then return it that the odds are greater that it will not make it.  Especially if you do not know what you are doing.  I was on the bay last week and caught a big eye and it took me 10 minutes of holding her properly before she left on her own.

Warm water=slow fishing.  Dangerous to fish for musky with water temps near 80.
