which dam is this where you guys filmed the video at?  I usually make it to Prairie du Sac 2-3 times a year, I don't target muskies, the few I do get are while fishing for walleyes bass or northerns, nice catch!!

last year in one of the backwaters north of gotham, I had a strike and a follow by a musky, I wasn't paying attention and something walloped my spinnerbait, as I reeled the bait in it followed and I was able to get a good look at it before it disappeared, it was much lighter colored/tan markings, I estimate it may have been a 40-45" fish, they are in there, backwater is only accessable by canoe when river is really low, I can get back into it with my jet boat sometimes when the river is up a little

managed to get out on the river Thursday, friday and sunday last week.  Thursday I was able to put 8-9 walleyes/sauger in the boat, but none were legal size, a couple of smallies and I had seen some surface activity with minnows jumping, caught 3 largemouth in 3 casts, biggest was 15, and came across a school of crappies, caught 5-6 of those, Friday afternoon almost a repeat of Thursday except for a 36" northern and only 2 crappie, but the one was 13"  went out sunday when it was damp and drizzly out, much slower fishing, only caught 6 walleye/sauger but 1 walleye and 1 sauger were big enough to keep, tons of needle nose gar still hanging around and stealing/shredding the baits caught all on jigs except for northern was on a spinnerbait

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!

went today after the fog burned off, caught around 15 walleyes, all shorts, a white bass and a couple little smallies, using flicker shad, minnows and twister tail jig, they were active, left about 1 pm and came back again about 5 pm searching for more spots that hold fish and promptly got skunked,

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!
