Any reports on evening/night time catfish? Trying to convince the wife and daughter to take me out for my birthday after she's done with softball practice.
71° - 75° F
Fished near the 41 Bridge on Wednesday June 2nd from 8;30am - 3pm. The water was low and the current was the slowest I've seen in years. 5-7 boats out there today. Ended with 21 fish landed, mostly drum and catfish, but caught an 18" walleye, 19" walleye, a feisty 24' walleye and a decent white bass. Also caught a bluegill, perch and a red horse. I brought out two beginners today and we lost a few nice fish. Used crawlers with small pink and yellow floating jigs. My trolling motor was out the whole day, so had to drift with the slow current. I am assuming we would have had a better day if I could have zig zagged where I wanted to go. Still, an average+ day on the water for me this time of year.
Just wondering if there is anything being caught on the river in Oshkosh or up closer to the 41 bridge. I am looking at going out next week and wondering if it would be worth my time. Thanks
Water temp this afternoon was anywhere from 51.5 to 53. Few big whitebass still hitting flies. The warmer weather is coming it looks like (knock on wood)
46° - 50° F
31° - 35° F
Hey TightLine311 - That was a Rock Bass. It was pretty big for a rock bass and had some cool pattern on it.
I went again this Sunday. Here's the video.
I didn't have any luck again with White Bass or Walleye, but I only fished in the morning from 6am to 10am. It was quite cold. Maybe it has gotten better since then. I caught a channel catfish and a sheepshead with a worm on the bottom with a set line. With my two flies I caught some snags and no fish. Fishing at Abe Roshlin Park was hard, too because I didn't have a lot of room so I left. My set line would drift a little bit, and I didn't want it to cross anyone.
Does anybody know what the water temperature is now?
What kind if fish was that in your video? Not the drum. It looked like a bluegill but had different coloring.
cloudy dark sunny bright or jus use purple always...always works for me
What color flies do you suggest for cloudy days compared to sunny days.
