Fished from 6 -10 today and yesterday 7-9. Managed 25 crappies between 2 of us. Had to keep the bait moving. Worked 7-12 feet of water on and outside weed edge.

Looking to get a better idea on how to target walleyes on Shawano Lake. Been out there the past couple weekends with no luck. Have seen some boats trolling the deeper middle with looked like crawler harnesses. Can't imagine trying to keep the small panfish off those?!? And the floating weeds? I would be catch & release given the work being done trying to get the numbers back up in the lake. PM me if you have any feedback. Much appreciated.

Made it out on the lake yesterday bass fishing. Tried from tight to shore out to 10 FOW. Caught fish in the reeds and out in 6-8’ submerged weedy flats. A few bass, crappie, couple perch, northern and my first Shawano Lake WALLEYE!
When we came out of Washington Lake and headed across to the other shoreline, my friend apparently left my net on the back of boat...I heard something but didn’t realize until later that it fell out. Not sure if it floats. It’s a nice tangle-free, extendable handle net that has a Rhino-Lined grip. We eventually went back and looked but couldn’t find it. If anyone finds it, I would really appreciate getting it back!
I don’t plan to fish shawano anytime soon but if I was, I would focus on the leafy weed areas in 6 to 10 feet but wouldn’t hurt giving the shoreline an hour or so. I have the most confidence in wacky stick bait presentations. Good luck!
Looking to do some bass fishing out here this weekend, but really don't know where to start or what to use. Haven't seen any reports either... :( Is the river too high? Should I stay in the main lake? Productive Depth -Shallow vs Deep?
I have a boat and gear, just hoping for some pointers to get started. Thanks in advance!
Fished out of LightHouse Bar and Launch a week ago with wife, ok day fishing , put boat back on trailer and went in to enjoy a few cold ones and Great Hamburger. Unknown to me at that time someone heisted my walleye extension landing net right from the boat while it was parked in the lot. Ive carried that net for over ten years, really sad someone has to do things like that. Its been replaced but just knowing a friendly family place like that things like this still can happen. Be aware of what you leave out in open I sure will from now on.
Went out with son and grandson for a few hours this morning. Nice "Father's Day" outing. Got about a dozen gills on slip bobbers with crawlers in 7-9 FOW north of the island. Awfully hot, glad we brought plenty of cold water.
They are done spawning. was out Sunday and not spawn in any of them. The bite was good in the am and by noon you were hunting for them.
What’s going on with the panfish? Are they spawning?
The only time I ever see carp in lake shawano is later May to early June. I stay on a cabin a couple blocks north of the county park and there often seems to be a school of spawning carp right by the cabin but I don’t seem to see them around the neighboring cabins. They sometimes are right on the edge of the shore splashing so that most of the fish can be seen out of the water. But nothing the size of the recent post.
