anybody seen or catch a muskie in this stretch? fished the lone rock area yesterday and had a follow. didn't get a great look, but it followed much like a muskie. caught a northern too yesterday. just curious if anyone has seen or caught one. the fish was probably in the 30" range. wasn't expecting to see a muskie if it was one. i havent gotten out on twin or Redstone all year for my muskie fix.

Fished the Lower Wisconsin the last three days.  The river is extremely low right now, with navigation difficult.  Eugene and his son Heath fished with me yesterday morning.  We caught quite a few fish, but most were small.  4 walleyes, 3 smallmouths, and a few sheepshead.  The day before I caught some nice channel cats on a channel bank.  We had a few bites there but couldn't connect.  This morning I fished with Scott and Amy.  We fished the same water and did a little better, boating a keeper Sauger trolling a flicker shad and a very nice channel cat that Amy caught fishing Sonny's dip bait.

Fall fishing right around the corner!  Thanks for reading my reports and have a good weekend!

Catfish trip yesterday with Greg.  The river has dropped about four feet and is now down enough for cat fishing.   The bite was pretty good, with Greg catching 6 nice channel cats on sonny's and 2 flatheads on crawlers.  A few bonus fish also.  Carp, sheepshead,  a bluegill and a short walleye.  Great day on the lower Wisconsin!  Lower 70's water temp.   

Thanks for reading my reports and have a great weekend!

This morning I fished with Al targeting smallmouth bass.  Had a good morning, boating around 15 nice fish including these two dandies that Al caught.  All our fish were caught on Tubes, texas rigged and pitched to shoreline cover.  

A big storm passed through the area last night, and a second front went through while we were fishing, dropping the air temp.  A cool off for the next couple of days, but hopefully fishing will remain good.  The river rose about 6 inches over night.

Thanks for reading my reports, and good fishing!

Fished a few hours this morning scouting areas for weekend trips.  The very warm weather we've enjoyed the last few days has the water temperature up to 62 degrees.  The river level is falling rapidly, now at 3.35 at Muscoda.  That's over 3 feet lower than early last week.  Be advised that sandbars are starting to show and navigation is not as easy as before.  Fished catfish mostly this morning.  Not many bites, but I did boat this beauty!  10 pounder.  Smallmouths are spawning.  

Don't forget about the Muscoda Morel Festival this weekend.  Lots of fun activities for the whole family.  Thanks for reading my reports and have a good week!

Smallmouth bass fishing on the Lower Wisconsin remains very good. River levels fell almost 2 feet since my last report a week ago.  Clarity is still very good and the water temperature was 50 degrees yesterday.  The weather is supposed to be warmer for the next several days, without rain!  That should get the water temperature up and get the fish biting even better.  I'll be starting to target catfish soon and hope to have a report for you.

The Muscoda Morel Mushroom Festival is getting close, so be sure to put it on your calendar.  This is a fun event for the whole family.  For a schedule of events, please go to www.muscoda.com.

Thanks for reading my reports and good fishing!

Afternoon trip with Jim yesterday on the Lower Wisconsin. What a change in weather after the morning showers. The front moved in and the air temperature took a dive! We had a good day catching numerous big smallmouths. Same presentation as the last couple of days. As I write this report, it is snowing here in SW Wisconsin. Grassy areas are white! That might change the bite a bit!

The river is starting to drop and the water temp yesterday was 56 degrees. Clarity was very good.

Thanks for reading my reports, and good fishing!

Fished a few hours again this morning.  Caught a bunch of smallmouths, but not the big ones like yesterday.  I did try to hunt new spots, and found some new areas that hold fish.  I had a message about what is a texas rig.  If you google "texas rig", you will get all the information you need to learn it including diagrams and even youtube videos. 

The river went up another 6 inches since yesterday.  The water temp was 57 degrees today.  Clarity is as good as I've seen it.  The smallmouth spawn is right around the corner so if you want to get into the action, give me a call.  I have open days available.    

Thanks for reading my reports, and good fishing!
