Saturday, June 5 the Rock River Rescue is holding our annual "Cash for Carp" tournament at Riverside Park in Watertown. We pay $1 for every carp caught. There is no cost to enter, just register before you start fishing. Registration begins at 7 A.M. The tournament ends at 5 P.M. Message me if you have any questions. Come on out and help us thin the population!
Thanks.It is little too far.It,s plenty of good Northerns (not over 40s,but decent) over Lake Koshkonong/Rock river/Bark river system.I just need to know where to look for them.
Norp you should go to Green Bay. Big pike over 40” in that bay. Lots of acres to fish but there are a few good spots if you know how to use side scan on your fish finder. There is the one spot off short tail by the big rock that I get one every time. The weed bed by oconto has lots too.
I,m from illinois and can not go everyday and check different spots.I may go there 2 times a year,so I hope somebody can share at least the area where to look for them,not necessary secret spot.Espesially,pike is not most popular fish you catch.Thanks.
NorPike, instead of posting the same question on 25 different threads go out and fish. Do you really think somebody is going to just hand you a shore accessible spot to catch 30” plus pike. First off not many locations around like that. Second a spot like that could be ruined very easily. Your best best is to put some baits in the water and find it yourself.
Hi.Is anybody can help to find good spot from shore with better chance to get 30+inch Northerns.Will greatly appreciate it.Good Luck!
Tried the lower dam recently with no luck..didn't see anyone catching anything either other than snags.
Anyone been catching eyes yet? 18" minimum probably means not many fish going to be taken out of here. Feel free to PM and good luck to all this spring.

Finally got a nice flathead!!!!!
Cappies Landing in Watertown on Thursday July 2nd at about 11 pm. The crazy thing is I lost one after fighting it for about 10 minutes on the cast before. There must have been at least a couple in there.
I’ve been back a few times since then and have missed one other on a blue gill (might have been a channel, not sure) and got a 24” carp that was a fun fight.
The steady warm temperatures have been good to get the cats going. Usually my best luck with them is late July through August but the weather has been right to trigger an earlier season bite.
Does anyone have any recommendations for other spots in the area for big flatheads? I got the fever now baby!
I've been fishing the rock river, lake koshonong area for the last 50 years and have eaten catfish, bullheads,white bass ,northern,walleye, bluegill. All these fish are very good eating. The important things you need to do with any fish is to put the fish on ice as soon as you catch it. When you clean or filet fish avoid having the meat touch any slime. Filet skin off the meat. And the last thing you need to do is to remove any of the red that is under the skin that is on the meat. We brush on melted butter and season and bake any of those fish and they turn out excellent.
