I see trailers at the launch in the river that is visible from the beltline. Anyone catching any fish? Would love to get the boat out and catch dinner.
The landing at Lotte’s Park is ice free, river is open up into Squaw and down through the trestle as usual.
I think I might make my first trip to upper mud on Friday. Plan to try to find one of the deeper spots and set a couple tip ups, jig for pan fish. I don't have electronics so we shall see how it goes. Seems like the fishing is slow everywhere at the moment.
My uncle is coming to town this weekend and I was wondering if someone could tell me what the trail looks like along with snow and ice conditions before I make him walk out there.
I've fished Mud twice this year. Pretty disappointed in both trips. Last year my family had pretty good success with really big gills and caught quite a few pike (nothing big, everything released). We kept a couple meals of gills throughout the winter and this year I have yet to even mark a fish. The two times we went out we had 4-8 tip ups out with shiners or chubs and didn't have a single flag and were jigging with just about everything in the box.
Anyone been able to find any panfish here recently?
How has the bite been?
Are there any bigger pike?
Dane County paved the parking lot there a few years ago. You have to pay to access the ice there, or have a county lake access permit. It's about a 10-15 minute walk through the marsh to get to the lake, then another 5-10 minutes to get to where they fish.
Bassbuddies....heading south on Terminal after coming off 51, just past Line-X of Madison there's a small narrow parcel with I think gravel parking. At the end, there's a small pay to park box and sign. The path starts right there. Follow it to the lake. Can be muddy and hard pulling a sled or shanty. Good luck!
