Two great days on the water, chasing walleyes with some great friends!! Saturday, I took the Ziehr family out, winners of a trip I donated to the Kenosha Shrines. Fishing started fast, as the first trolling pass netted us 6 walleyes. After a reset of lines, we proceeded to net another 17 walleyes over the next 2.5 hours, ending the trip with 23 walleyes. 8 fish over 20" were released, and the group kept 15 nice 16-20" eaters.
Monday I took out the Kellner boys for their annual trip. Fishing was not nearly as fast, and we grounded out 17 walleyes for the morning, with 10 shorts and 7 eaters.
On both days, #7 flicker minnow and flicker shad took our fish. White and purple were our best colors. Speed was important, with 2.0-2.4 our best presentation.
I do have a few openings this month, and several openings in July, August and September. Capt Jerry
If cost is not an issue, hands down I would get an Odyssey battery. Their batteries last a very long time. They make back up batteries for elevators so making long lasting batteries is what they do
I need a new trolling motor battery . Any suggestions? What brand lasts longest?
Fished south of Bay Shore for a few hours. 9 to 11 ft of water. got a few nice keepers, and some smaller walleyes. Move north and scrapped together a decent day. Total catch... 15 walleye and some white bass. 5 nice keepers ( 16 to 19"). Super suprised I didnt get a single sheepshead. Had 3 big hits that snapped my line in seconds, who knows. A fun day.
Well.....this report isn't to promote a guide service.. was out all day today. Fished the whole lower Bay. Looked like chocolate milk from the short tail south. Fished the pan, long and short tails. Dead horse Bay. .. cats on the pan... lots of sheep head and white perch in the dead horse. . Did catch a couple of NICE Northern.. no eyes.. no nets flying. We pulled cranks 8-12 fow. 62 - 65 temps.. Was a long confusing day.
Hello LL'ers, It has been too long.....
I have had many messages from folks asking if I am open for Guiding. I have been holding off opening up for Guiding due to some personal family issues. But the time has come for me to kick it into gear.
FinFanatic Charters is OPEN FOR BUSINESS!
I have been out on the lower Bay a a few times with my Wife and took my parents out for a day. Fishing has been up and down the last 2 weeks with the rain/wind/dirty water at times. But if you get into clean enough water success has been good. My key for water clarity is if I can see my prop/cavitation plate the water is good to go! We had some success Jigging and Trolling. Pulling #7 Flicker Minnows in purples and whites has been the best tactic in general for me when I have been out.
I am booking trips for Lake Winnebago for the month of June and then Back on to Green Bay July through the rest of the year! Don't wait to get your dates! Weekend dates will fill up fast, but we can make nay day work for a day on the water for the most part.

Despite the rain, we set out Thursday afternoon, seeking walleye gold. Working the 11-14' depths, based on a hot tip I got, we found fish will to take our offers. Unfortunately, they were white perch, drum, and undersized walleyes!! We made some adjustments and moved to a hard bottom area close by, finding the walleyes willing to hit our flicker shad and minnows. For the trip, we ended up with 24 walleyes and many assorted drum, pike, white perch, and undersized walleyes. 3 walleyes were around 26-27" and were released. The guys kept a nice bunch of 17-19" eaters, and despite a hook in Bubba's finger, had a great time.
I have openings in June, July, August, and September for those looking to book a trip. Capt Jerry.
Thank you Jerry. I made the call and am picking some up on my way up.
Very nice guy and accommodating.
I don't know what the NW wind is going to make me do but I feel very lucky I at least get to go.
