Hey Schlitz,

The bluegill bite has been good in the backwaters for a few weeks. wax worms were good on black jigs near the bottom in Tippy's and the sand pit at the south end of Frentress lake. my buddies did better for the larger gills with nightcrawlers on Saturday in Tippy's. Green Lake in nine mile  island is another good spot. Dipping your jigs in the tightest brush yields the biggest.There are always a lot of bluegill back in the marina where the silver eagle use to be. Putting in at Massey Station saves the run down from Dubuque. The marinas around Dubuque should be going also. 

Not many crappies being caught in the lakes which tells me they should be on brush just outside the lakes in a little current yet. Good luck and I will be chasing them Sunday with you.

Hey J.D. Knight,

Hey looking to get out this weekend despite the wind. Was probably thinking going for bluegills since we didn't want to mess with the channel for walleyes with the wind. Any hints to give? Are the panfish deep? By structure? Any help is appreciated.

Lots of bluegill being caught in Tippy's and Frentress lake. Wax worms have been the best. Water temp is 58. A few crappie with them and crappie gets better right up till ice up.

I will be hitting the water tomorrow. A lot of club members have been having good luck below the dam and on wigndams. Best luck on #11 rapalas in orange or blue. Water is dropping and the weather is gonna be good thru next weekend. Im sure the jig/minnow bite and one eye bite at the barge and ahort wall will be good also. Get out before the hardwater takes over. Big Smile

Spent Sunday trying to catch crappies in the backwaters. Started at sunken trees in 6 to 8 feet of water. Nick got 3 keepers in pretty short time. I on the other hand couldnt get bit. Last year in this spot we caught 3 times that many. With no more bite we made are way back to Tippys. The water is higher now and we didnt have any trouble getting back there. There was one other boat there already and they had minnows and bobbers. We pulled 2 bass of the first stick we stopped at and found onee stick that had 2.big bluegill but still was pretty slow. Wee next headed down Menominee slough and fished the brush against the tracks. 3 largemouth was all we could find. Tried one more spot on the way back to Massey and Nick scored a 13 and 11incher to end the trip.

Spent the afternoon piching hair jigs to rip rap. We found the smallmouth were biting. I was using a 3/16 Hutches hair jig in yellow and they were smashing it. We started below the east dubuque bridge and wherever you could see points sticking out the smallmouth were busting bait. The majority of the fish came on the upstream area anove the points. Mike Seivers went along and had luck with a black hair jig but switched to a yellow ringworm to match my hairjig color amd it produced also. I had 4 fish on consecutive cast at 2 different locations. If there was a 6 foot shelf away from the rip rap it had smallies on it. We did catch acouple small waalleyes and sauger in with the bass but no keepers. Great time to get your smallie fix in before winter. Good luck. Big Smile
