I finally caught a quillback out of the Wisconsin River.  I was also trying to catch a gar.  Caught the quillback in two feet of water, really close to shore on a sand flat.  Was using just a bit of worm.  I was sight fishing for it.  I caught a nice smallmouth on a spinnerbait, and a smaller smallmouth, a channel catfish, and a bluegill on worms.

Great videos guys! Nice work on saving the paddlefish. Every year I end up having to do the same thing with paddles, blue suckers, out of season cats/sturgeon, and muskies. It's sad how many must get poached when no one is around.

Went out on Wisconsin River from about 130 yesterday until 530. Water temp was 81 degrees. We caught a pike, a walleye, 6 bluegill, a mooneye, a gar, a sheepshead and a flathead catfish and a lamprey. Not fast action but a good variety of species.

It was kind of slow on Thursday when I went.  I was fishing worms on the bottom and caught a few nice bluegill, a little channel cat, and a couple of sheepshead.  The only excitement was when a guy snagged a really big paddlefish.  He was going to keep it, but I explained that it is a threatened fish and that he had to let it go.

There is a landing and parking lot right by Blackhawk canoe rental a couple miles south of Sac. Google Blackhawk and you will find a map

Can anyone suggest a decent boat launch somewhere between the prairie do sac dam and muscoda? I want to hit the river for a few days next week. Do some camping on sand bars and fishing. The boat is a light weight 16' modified v. Easy to get on and off the trailer so the launch doesn't have to be perfect. But needs parking

Got up early Sunday Morning to be at the river before sunrise.  I fished from shore for four hours (5:00 to about 9:00).  I caught two bluegill, three sheepshead, two shorthead redhorse suckers, two small smallmouth, and one mooneye (a new species for me).  It was a good morning.  Oh, and I also caught a turtle.  The river was higher than normal, and all fish were caught close to shore in a little hole that was near the edge of the east side of the river near Sauk City.  I used a worm on the bottom for all the fish I caught.

I was targeting gar and quillback suckers, but I didn't catch either.  The rain didn't seem to affect the water level or the bite.  I was where the old railroad tracks used to cross the Wisconsin River by Sauk City.  Any tips on how to land a gar would be greatly appreciated!

The bass are VERY active in the shallows up near shorelines. Caught between 20-30 the past two days about 2 hours each day. Mid afternoon.

I don’t eat them, but damn they are fun to catch!
