Slow bite today still, water was 55-56. Manged about a dozen nice white bass, and as many drum. Little bit of everything, but minnows seemed to get bit most often.
56° - 60° F
61° - 65° F
Made it out two days last week. Thursday afternoon down to De Pere and yesterday Sunday afternoon by the mouth going upriver. Both days the only fish that bit consistently was sheephead and occasional catfish. I didn't get any white bass caught snagged one while jigging only. Pulled flies jigged threw plastics and spinners deep and shallow for WB they were just shut down. Saw lots of people from shore probably they were doing better or someone found the honey hole. Lol!
Tight lines all. Better days ahead!
Skinwalker....I’m out on the bay today fishing for walleye, but catching perch and throwing them back. Silly me. If I cross paths with the warden I’ll send him to Voyageur. He’ll straighten out the perch poachers.
Took a walk around the park today and saw people illegally harvesting perch.
Closed season till May 20th.
The bliss from ignorance must be exquisite.
46° - 50° F
41° - 45° F
Fished 9am - 12;30 pm. Slow day pulling flies. A crappie minnow added helped 100%. Got into pregnant perch under the bridge and off Voyager. Hooked something big but couldn't get it in. Then a good sized cat. Only a couple whites and only one sheep. Perch are fat but short?
We talk about our latest mistakes while targeting walleyes on Green Bay, and what we bring to the turkey woods in our vest.
Presentation is key in many instances. Watch what others are doing. What you were doing is great as rule of thumb, but if it isn't working after 20 minutes change it up. If you know fish are in the area change colors.
Thanks skinwalker. Ya I'll be in the a boat. Have close to a 4 hour drive so i wanted to make sure some goats were around. Long day in the car with a pissy 6 year old if the trip is sour.
Well I’m sure I was near you then this evening. As I posted few days ago never tried for whites on the river so I tried today. Was in the group of half a dozen boats close to the dam, saw others catching some but I didn’t get a bite, moved spots a few times used jigs (1/8-1/4 oz) with twister tails or plastic shads, mepps, and a few small crank type baits. Slow rolled them back, popped them back, tried all I could but no luck today.
