Went out tuesday afternoon, threw very hard for musky and pike right under the dam. I tried every musky lure and colors in the box for 5 hours straight and managed a 33" fat healthy musky. It hit a double bladed white buck tail. Tried for walleye no luck on them as always lol! Anyhow ive only fish this area a few times, how is the musky population in this stretch of water? Is it normal to catch them at this time of year at this location? Moved over by sauk any tips or anything to point me in the right direction toward river musky would he awesome! PM if you would like

Went out on Wisconsin River on Sunday afternoon and I was surprised by how few boats were fishing by dam. I landed a musky that wasn't hooked right, missed a good fish that picked up a sucker and caught a walleye.
Late Report. I went fishing below dam last sunday from 630 until 9 in morning in rain. I mostly fished for musky and had two fish of unknown species pick up sucker and drop it quickly. I also snagged a lamprey.
Launching from VFW and looking for safe passage upstream to find the flatties. Never had a boat on these waters. Hoping Rat Or others can tip me off to some holes. Also, are there any depth charts for this area? Just want to stay out of skinny waters if possible. I'm in a super old glass boat. If need be I'll switch to aluminum if you locals advise it. Any other flat fishers here? I'm always CPR so don't worry about your population. Probably last trip of the year and want to make it a good one. Thanks for all your help.
Edit to add this question. Any catfish folks use in-fisherman solunar calendar? If so, is there any notable reliability to it?

My brother an I fished here yesterday fo about eight hours. We did not catch any walleye or sauger, but we did catch large catfish(2), a carp, crappie and some sheepheads. It seems that the walleye and saugers are not biting yet? Nice day to be on the water though.
