We hit a few spots for panfish. Mostly small gills showing up. We did see lots of 3" minnows schooling up in the bays. Lots of fish smashing them. Had one blowup as we tried a top water frog bait. Things should get hot soon. Water temp was about 76. River is staying steady now.

Caught a couple of channel cats (24" and 25") on the Black River while trolling for walleye today. Caught one on a Deep Thunderstick and the other on a Wally Diver.

Get below the dam and where the water is churning. They are very aggressive within a few hundred yards of the dams right now. Ask all the walleye anglers that are getting their baits smoked by them. Try to get away from that wives tale that you need the stinkiest/nastiest bait on the market. Fresh cut bait worked very well for us the other day and I didn’t have to bathe in bleach when I got home.  Just catch some sheep head and fillet out a side. Don’t be afraid to go big, our biggest fish came off a small sheep heads head. Big circle hooks rarely missed. I’m not someone that targets cats a lot but my daughter wanted something big, and Sunday morning didn’t disappoint.

I've fished pool 9 and caught a lot in the open pool area above the dam. Find current or channels in 4 to 12 feet and try to fish the edges of weeds or channel edges. Also try any cuts off the main channel with fallen trees with current along the edges. Tripple S is a killer dip bait. Keep moving. There's a ton of cats in that river.

Can anyone give me a few pointers on finding channel cats out on the river??  I’m real riding the struggle bus with this and it’s driving me crazy. ????  I’ve tried deep holes, upstream of wing dams, down stream of wing dams, rock piles, wood and most other places other then the middle of the river itself!  Any info you could give would be appreciated. I know it’s the wrong pool but I’ll be going out on pool 7 in the morning and hoping the information transfer up stream.  Thanks again!

Usually a creel survey. Measuring length and number per species. They preform them a couple of times a year at least. I couldn’t say that’s what they were doing exactly as I don’t work for any government agencies but usually That’s what there doing.

So...the DNR was shocking fish in front of my dock today. Only taking gills. A couple rough fish came up they let them pass by. Anybody know what they are checking for?

Took some friends out on the pontoon to fish. Tried wing dams and not much going. We were only using crawlers. Caught a few small gills. I tried a hair jig and half a crawler and nothing. Hit a backwater area and caught a couple perch one dink and another 12" my friends pb. Water temp was 78 around lacrosse. Think I have to get some minnows or troll cranks.....but not on the pontoon!

How is the water clarity in back waters? Stoddard Islands? Goose?
