Chevyguy,

You call the city yet and voice your frustration?

Coming on here and venting is one thing, but if you really want action, give a call to the city and let them know how you feel.  Then something might actually happen.  

262 691 7275 is the main number.  Give a call in there and I'm sure they can route you to the correct area.

Fished on Saturday morning. Nice calm water. Until the idiots on the west were ski boarding right along the no wake zone and in front of the launch. This was about 6am. What about the 10mph speed limit until one hour after sunrise? Then fishing the north shore for panfish and a guy in a blue ski boat with 9 people on it was teaching people to ski inside the mo wake zone! To top it off we were anchored about 10 from a dock catching gills and a guy in a kayak paddles between us and the dock 3 feet away from us !!!  The people on this lake are totally clueless on boat safety and courtesy.  I guess “ any idiot can own a boat” and what’s with the guy in the Green Bay Packer boat that has to buzz the shoreline EVERY morning before 7 am ? The Pewaukee Police need to step up enforcing the laws and ordinances.

Maybe I saw you out there Chris2fur?

I took the wife out flipping for some bass.  Quick trip of about 2 hours, fished till around 7:00.  Caught 5 largies, one crappie and one smallie.  All in a all a fun little trip.

Water was 79 degrees.  And I've heard/seen reports that show low dissolved oxygen levels in the lake.  The smallie we got released just fine, but floated to the surface about 3 minutes later.  We tried for about 30 minutes to revive it in the livewell, getting some flowing water on it, but it was a goner.  Too bad.  The hook was in the top lip, no where near anything delicate.  Figure that fish fought too hard, as smallies tend to do.

Saw another very dead musky in the weeds we were fishing.  Birds were pecking away at it.  Couldn't really tell the size.  

The warmer water and calm days are making fishing that lake tough right now.

Took the college aged kids out for an afternoon/dusk fishing trip.  Tried like hell with slip bobbers and leeches to tangle with some walleye and bass.  (The goal was to catch 2 keeper walleye for them to take for dinner on Sunday) Got out at 4PM and fished until 11:30PM.

The boat traffic was unreal and it's pretty clear that most pleasure boaters have no idea about boating laws regarding distance.  If I can cast a musky lure and hit you in the head, you're too close.  We even had a jet skier, about high school age, that went in between boats in the no wake area of Rocky Point.  He realized what he did and took a 90 degree turn to get out of there and ran over a line from the other boat.  Unbelievable.  

Boats went over wake speed well into the night.  In daylight, it's fine because you see it coming and get your sea legs ready.  At 10:30 at night, when you don't see the wake coming, it nearly throws you out of the boat.  

We saw the police take someone into custody and leave the lake after sunset...wish they would've stayed out.  They could've filled an annual quota.

Anyway, back to fishing...We stayed on the West basin fishing from Rocky Point to the western island and in front of the condos.  24' during daylight hours, 8-10' during night.  Didn't see a single fisherman catch a fish in any other boat.  Pulled crawler harnesses in 18' of water at dusk while the kids ate dinner.  We didn't get bit by a single thing.  We caught a couple of quality gills after dark near the island that were around 9".  I gave them to shore fishermen at the launch that had a BUCKET of nice gills and a 3-4 pound bass in their bucket.  Apparently, the gill action is hot and heavy in the shallow weeds.  My son gave up after dark.  My daughter fished non-stop until we left.  I really wish I could've put them on fish.  I should've stuck with what I know and casted docks with plastics for bass.  At least I would've kept them busy with action.

Next time I'll take them out when the weather isn't so nice.

Tracker Guy, nice catch. I think the IGFA might technically call that a  release. If the leader is in hand the fish was "caught".

Got out this morning and battled the wind. Managed a nice perch and a few bass in the shallows. Not bad for a few hours. All were safely released!

Went out from 0600-1200.

Pulled rigs, spinners, and jig rapped a bit. No walleye but accidentally caught a 42in ski (did not have a big enough net) and a 32 in northern. Both where back in the water within 30 seconds of bring in the boat and hook out.

I understand how people get addicted to them, I had to sit for a second i was shaking so bad after i got her back in.

Found some crappie suspended and jigged on them a bit, could have kept a handful, all went back. Crappie over 20-25ft suspended at 8-10ft, if you have side scan not to terribly hard to find.

Milwaukee Chapter of Muskies Inc once again hosted a panfish outing with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Milwaukee.  What a beautiful morning it was on Saturday...to get out and catch some bluegills!

Captains got their pontoons over to Smokeys to pick up kids in the morning and away they went for the panfish hunt.  (Huge thanks to Smokeys and their staff for donating that space to us!!!)

Was told that many boats caught 50-75 gills.  Of course the goal is to catch fish, size is irrelevant, but there were some nice sunfish caught, too many gills to really count and a couple of largemouth made an appearance.  There were tall tales of a 17 incher that may have gotten off right at the boat.

And when the fishing was done, it was lunch time.  Muskies Inc. grilled up burgers and hot dogs for the kids while Jennifer Verges from the club donated an ice cream sundae bar for the kids to enjoy.

This is such a great event for the kids.  I have to share one quick story, we raffle off 3 nice little prizes at the end.  This year it was a nerf football, frisbee and a deluxe 100 piece chalk set for drawing on concrete/asphalt.

Well, as fate would have it, the oldest (and largest) Little there (17) won the chalk set.  I'm telling you, this kid was taller than me and looking like he knows his way around a weight room.  He came up, took his prize, thanked us, then took it to his seat where he re-gifted it to the smallest, cutest little girl at the event.  Her jaw dropped open and the smile she had on her face?  Well, it was amazing.  Everyone who saw that happen knew things like that was why we put on this event.  The Big Brothers/Big Sisters program is a great program that helps these kids become unreal people.  People capable of great generosity and kindness.  Just had to share that moment.

This event wouldn't be possible without the volunteers from Muskies Inc as well as others.  Some folks even volunteered via Lake Link.  Others were asked by friends to help out.  Truly a community event.  Thanks to everyone who participated and helped out.  Already looking forward to next year and "evolving" this program.
