Anyone ever run into any crappie in the river?
|@ the lake|
Keep the musky baits in the box until the season opens May 23rd.
56° - 60° F
fish voyager park off shore a lot. This time I can see what seems to be carp jumping all over the entire river. We saw 4 muskies along the rocks by past the concrete fishing pier. We only managed to catch 1 white bass. Wondering what is our best bet for catching any sort of fish right now? Keep trying for the bass? Tie Muskie baits on? How do we catch the carp? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
Haven't looked this year yet, but white bass on the river there and Green Bay have been on a do not consume list for a while. Good for C&R, but if you want some to eat, hit the Winnebago system.
If you guys have ever been through a McDonald’s drive through or eaten gas station food, you’re probably doing your bodies a favor by eating those whitebass. Perspective is everything...
Remember guys, all things in moderation. Whether eating fish or typing snark.
olive oil, lots of garlic, sun dried tomatoes, and fresh basil removes/covers most petroleum, sludge, and sewage odors from all food. Its also a great combo recipe for grillin/bakin fish
Caught a few Whitebass on Saturday. Deep fried them for dinner. For some reason the fishes from here gives me pinching nerve pains on my left chest. The strong pungent gasohol smell from frying them has significantly been dissipated ever since pcb’s levels are being dredged out tho. The bigger Whitebass meat has no flavor at all. Probably from being laden with pcb’s all these years. A slight smell of chemicals from the pcb is still present in all of them big or small. In comparison to Wolf river Whitebass; it is not as enticing. As the wife says it, we had our dosed of pcb’s so we’re good for the year.
Anyone eat the walleye and/or white bass from the fox? I know everything has improved quite a bit over the years.
Thanks Mountain. Valuable info.
Planning to hit the Fox Thursday. I always fish the North side of the power lines anyways but you never know. It's better to be safe than sorry. ??
