Out verifying some spots I'd found the other day were still holding fish so I could take a couple people out to catch and release some Gills. They were. Dropped a jig down to measure size and right away caught a 10.5" Perch. Let him go and tried again. Next four fish were little Rock Bass. Dropped the camera down and lots of Gills up a bit from the bottom, and I was fishing close to bottom. But mission successful regardless. Surface temp was 76.1°F. Water clarity was a bit better when I checked out some sonar hits in 50+ FOW which was a pleasant surprise. Lot of people out fishing and the pleasure cruisers were heading out when I was leaving. Put in at Olbrich, cleaned all the weeds off the trailer after launching the boat, and again after loading. LOTS of weeds but nice out there this morning when it was cloudy.

Hit the Wall last night.  Only saw two other fisherman.  Three to six inch bluegill on fire.  Hundreds of them swimming around.  Keeper size gills have yet to show up in numbers.  I caught three in four hours.  The gulls ate well last night.  Rat.

Out dragging harnesses yesterday.  Lots of bites, but not a lot of hookups.  I suspect that's pretty typical of Monona, given the panfish population.  Working 18-25'.  Had something quite large break off at the boat, never saw it.  I suspect a smaller pike or musky, or a rather large walleye.  Several small walleye.  A few decent bluegill, and a few small crappies.  A smaller pike. A small gar (pretty cool and incredible he got hooked and didn't break the harness).  Highlight of the night was a 26" walleye.  Will likely continue to run that pattern, and run cranks over the basin for the foreseeable future.

It's getting better.  Always does when the water turns green.  Fish aren't as wary. First time in a while that I could of kept a meal. Caught a mixed bag.  Even a few small walleye.  All on my panfish stuff tipped with wax worms.  I prefer spikes over wax worms.  Little gills are very efficient at stripping wax worms but not spikes.  Besides one gets more spikes in a container and they are cheaper. Hoping to get out a couple of more times until vacation the first week of July. Rat

Water clarity is getting worse, won't be shooting too many more videos until it clears up again after fall turnover. But did post a couple on youtube just to show examples of statements I've made many times in the past. First one shows a large metal grate laying on the bottom with a chain over the top and a jug off to the side with something connected to it. Assuming it's connected to the chain and the object was used as a mooring point for something. It's 500' from shore so that makes me wonder...Anyway, I tell people that ANY kind of structure WILL hold fish at some point in the year. This is just an example of even a flat piece of structure (not something all stacked together like pallet cribs) can attract fish. Lots of Bluegills hovering over it. On an earlier piece of structure I dropped a jig/spike down to measure the size, these looked to be similar to the 7.5" Gill I caught.

Second video is another example for checking out isolated weed beds. This is one of three I looked at this morning, all three were stacked with Gills. No other weeds close by, so these really stand out on side scan. This one is only in about 13 FOW, but still holds true for weeds at any depth above the thermocline, or at ANY depth when there's enough Dissolved Oxygen present.


Surface temp this morning was 73.2°F.
