Condor, Kegonsa is almost perfectly round so it goes from mirror finish to choppy in a heartbeat. That said, most of the time it isn't too bad. 1foot maybe a bit more is the worst I've seen. Its just not fun in my 12' boat.Bluegill, when you find them are huge. Perch were good but two winters ago they were hit hard. Walleye are usually decent but the lake is changing. They have taken over 300,000 lbs of carp out over the last 3 years and are hitting it harder with weed cutters, so some of the normal spots have been changing. Most people are hitting the points these days and just looking to see how deep they are. you can troll for walleye but you get a lot of white bass, too.

Just curious about this lake,I have never fished it besides from shore,but dose it get really choppy?,and how good are walleyes out there?
No it is not, well it wasn't a few years ago when I was on there.. ran my ranger all the way into town.. it gets really shallow so be on plane if that's what you're going to do...
Hey all just a general question on a spot I’ve never been. The gravel launch on the yahara south of Kegonsa. It’s at the intersection of N and B i believe, is that stretch of the yahara marked as slow no wake as well like between waubesa and kegonsa?

Fished this morning, 7:30 until 11 am. Was going to fish Mendota this morning but I got all the way there and realized I left my boat key at home! I live 5 minutes from Kegonsa so I went here instead. Also forgot my depth finder but luckily I know the lake fairly well. Went to a weed edge where I've caught fish before and drifted until I found a few fish. Ended up catching almost everything, 1 yellow bass, a white bass, two perch, one bluegill and 5 walleyes. Two were keepers, 15 1/8 inch and 17 inches, two were 14 and one was maybe 8 inches long. The 15 incher had a tag in it so I'll report that to the DNR today. Was glad I ended up here, the fish we're biting but stopped by about 10:00. It was getting too hot anyway!
Haven't been on the lake since last year's high water. How is the launch at Fish Camp? Both docks in again now? Thinking of trying the lake again tomorrow. Thanks.

Decided to take the kayak out for a few hours late morning to early evening and tried for bluegills only to get 1 sheepshead so I switched to trolling deep diving flicker shads for a bit and ended up catching 1 perch 1 smallmouth bass 2 whitebass and 2 pike. 1 pike was 32 and the other was 20. All in all a good day on the water. Lots of algae on the lake already.
Fourth trip on Kegonsa for the year from 5:30pm till after dark on 5/15. Targeted walleye trolling every trip. Caught exactly 1 walleye every trip. Finally got a keeper. Just a tad over legal length.. Only other fish was a short northern. Caught plenty of seaweed, so it's time to give up on Kegonsa for the summer. My boat and crew are eagerly waiting to fish on Lake Michigan! Tight lines, good luck and stay safe to all our fellow fishermen!!
