riverfishwi and everyone else,

Thanks for the tips and replies. I will be heading to lake wi and taking the advise to get used to the new to me boat before trying the river. Looks like some rain next week. Hopefully that will help.

Best of luck,

FH

They were talkin about going from VFW to the dam. That is a fair stretch too, I guess. Tipperary is up on Lake Wisconsin. Almost all sand up there, so not much of a worry as far as damaging the boat. I would do that trip and wait for higher water to do the VFW to dam run, if you don’t have a lot of experience in the area

Great map. Be careful and go slow. You can be a foot off at times and really ruin your day. Don't be like the self proclaimed "pro guide" who took his lower out this past weekend.

The picture Eyemanic posted is about the perfect trail up. The best advice someone can give a new boat owner, is take it slow. Even an experience boater, changing boats, whether it be a bigger motor, column to tiller, or getting a longer boat, it just takes time to get use to it. With the river, anything and everything is out to get you. Go slow, and remember the river changes daily. I’ve dropped lower units thinking it was smooth sailing, and taking things for granted, that only costs money, and most of the time leaves you stranded.

riverfishwi,

Thanks for the reply. Was just wondering where you would launch on lake wi? I saw a video from early retirement saying that tipperary launch was still iced up 4 days ago.

Water is very low     Look out   --lots of rocks just under water.  38 degree water.  bite is slow..   Better off goin to Lk. Wis. off Tipperary rd.  steady action there  but lots of shorts.    You'll hav a chance to get used to boat there. some sand bars   but their visable now.  watch other fishermen.    Good luck.

Looking to come fish the dam for the first time this weekend and get my new (to me) boat wet for the first time as well. I've fished walleye a lot but never in the river. Anything critical I should know about river fishing eyes or just cautions so I don't ruin the boat my first time out? Any advise is always appreciated and I will report after.

Best of luck,

FH

Only managed 10 shorts yesterday using plastic.  Close on the sauger but 1/16th short..  The spot lock was very busy keeping me positioned in that 15+ mph northeast wind.  I think the wind drove me off the river, not the slow bite.  Warmer days coming.
