Went out on the 14th but it was too windy for kayak fishing the main lake, so Instead I stayed by the Yahara River @ Babcock and managed to catch a giant 25" sheepshead (Freshwater Drum) I also watched as the whitebass continualy blew up the surface when foraging on minnows by the bridges. Otherwise I noticed lots of floating crap (weeds) in the water due to the recent storms. Which sadly makes crankbait fishing a real pain in the butt. 

Lots of baby bass and small baitfish located around shallow grass and rocks right now.

Fished yesterday 6:30 to 10....fished a little deeper to start around 10-0, just mid to small gils.  Moved to 7-0, a nice mixed bag of keepable perch and gils along with the small action guys of course.  

Had the immense joy of listening to a bass guy who was spot locked on a spot cuss out another bass guy who was trolling towards his territory.  It would be nice if we could be civil with each other.  I wonder if there was a bass tourney going on.

I picked up a bag on Libby road this afternoon.  It has a lot of nice tackle in it.  Must have fell out of a boat or vehicle.  Contact me via messenger and give description and you will have it back.

Babcock boat launch is plenty big for your boat.  I see guys bass fish all the time on the drop offs and weed edges and when I fishing, they just don't post anything.  I think any experienced bass person can catch them on Waubesa.  You can also access Monona from Waubesa if you can't make Waubesa work.

I'm headed to this lake in a couple weeks and am interested in bass fishing. I've read all kinds of reports for panfish but are there no bass in this puddle? haha Also is the launch at Babcock Campground good enough for a 21 foot bass boat. Can you get from one lake to the other?

Saturday evening fished moonset/sunset, did not see any toothy critters.  There were only a few guys out.

Sunday 7:30-11 hit some pockets of weeds in 8 fow and did really well on the pannies. Live bait close to the bottom did the trick as usual.  This time small gills were the bait stealing culprits, not the white bass.  Most were C&R.

Fished 7-11 yesterday in 9-10 fow around weeds.  Lots of 4" white bass probably hindered the perch and gil results, but we managed to get 13 nice perch and 3 nice gils for the frypan.  Also caught a 13" eye.  In 3-4 years there is going to be an awesome white bass class on this lake.  It will be fun to run into these fish then.
