A late report.........Son and I went for the night bite. Threw mostly crawlers and leeches. Although I did throw some stick baits. Fished mostly the north end 8 to 20 FOW. Bass and rock bass were on immediately. But I wanted walleyes. We did get 3 17 to 19 inches just before dark. Outside weed edges in the sand. Good to see that even after 20 years the same areas hold fish. There were 3 other boats out there but didn't see them land anything.
Are the crappie done doing there thing? Gills on beds yet?
I guess I could just ask for water temp. Lol
Nemab-man, I always thought the minimum length on northern pike here to keep was 26", did it recently change or have I been mistaken this whole time? JW Thanks
norpike, you are posting the same question on many sites. you may get some useful answers or you may not. my suggestion would be to invest in a plat book of the county or counties you want to fish. look for public areas along a body of water, look for bridges and dams. also sportsmans connection has publications with lakes and rivers related to a section of a state. they give useful info about each area of water. i know they publish books for both northern Il. and southern Wi. good luck in your quest.spikes
Is it many of big Pike in this lake or not really? What is the chance to catch 35+ inch Northerns? I heard it was really good Big pike lake in the past.Is that true? (Lower Nemahbin).If somebody can tell what is best lake around Delafield with good chance to catch 35+ inch Northerns?Thanks.Good Luck!
56° - 60° F
51° - 55° F
I think I saw you out there MCZ, if you were fishing near the Bark inlet on upper. I was in the Starcraft with my wife, brother in law, and kids. Similar luck to you...nothing doing. Although I caught several dandy crappie (up to 14") the day before in the exact same spot, all CPR'd.
Very nice! I popped out from 435-630 and couldn’t get anything to bite much less show up on my radar. Saw some crappies but not interested. I was the OTHER princecraft boat
Any recent reports ?
Thinking about trying It out for walleye or bass. CPR
Are the piers in yet? Anyone know.
Went out a few days back. Got some small gills and wasn’t finding the bigger ones but I tried a slightly different spot. Tipups- got a flag, one northern that was short. At launch saw some guy with the biggest pike I’ve seen come out of this lake. He kept it.. wish people would throw the trophy fish like that back.
