Anyone had luck bow fishing this year? I got into some spawning fish several weeks ago, biggest one I shot was 40lbs (pictured). Absolute insanity after I hit it. Weather has been so cold the last several weeks the carp seemed to have completely turned off. Hoping there are still some big spawners left once we get some warm weather again. If anyone has a boat with lights and wants another shooter drop a comment!

Wife and I couldn't get on to Geneva at Linn or Williams Bay due to late start so we went to Powers. Glad we did. Really fun afternoon from about 11:30-4:30. 22 total largemouth bass and a handful of big rock bass. 5” Shad Senkos wacky rigged over and at edges of weeds at west and north sides. Easy fishing and beautiful weather for a nice change.
Here’s a double of twin 14” pretty typical of size of bigger ones, some real dinks too.

Fished 10am to 4pm Monday with it being slow go. Kept 4 crappies with as many small ones as well as several bass and northern released. Water temp 67 and it was very stained (2' visability) by all the run off from recent rains.
$8.00 for non resident, cash box right at the launch.
Does the DNR launch have a fee, if so can someone let me know how much? Thanks in advance!

Went out Saturday afternoon with my oldest for a couple hours fishing bluegill. Caught some decent fish around any weeds we found along with some very light biting bass. Water is very clear and fish were super spooky the windy side of the lake had a better bite and the fish would bite a little closer to the boat.
The north side public launch pier is in and fees are now required for using the facility.
Tight lines !
Is the pier in at the DNR launch yet wasn't in last week
Fishing since 530 Have a group of six guys we have drilled about 100 holes tons of tip ups out. one northern jigging and seven Pike on tip ups so far. Came to chase pan fish but no luck so far been a tough day for that. Ice is really good most holes between eight and 10 inches no soft spots even with the rain the cold weather definitely made a big difference. if anybody’s looking for Jig the spot by the inlet by the launch The ice is also good there we had no such luck there though
