Full day with George on the wi river. We caught some fish jigging and trolling. Water temp was 48.6 when we left, the bite was not fast and furious and we caught a lot of little eyes,5 legals and a mighty white, no slots today. George released all fish today, strictly caught and release kinda day! J-Mata Fishing
Solid day of fishing with Troy, his wife Zarina, and their friend's son, Cam. Troy was my 1st sergeant in a unit I belonged to a few years back before he retired. We all caught fish but reminiscing about our army days together was the best part by far!
We caught a ton of white bass. We only kept what you see in the photo. There were plenty more caught! We went searching for walleyes after all we caught in a couple stops was white bass. We caught only about 15 walleyes today with two legals. The water temps are still hovering around 48-49 degrees everywhere in the river and down to the mouth.
Thanks for the heads up. Will give it a try probably Friday.
Hothead, I caught half a dozen or so whit bass near the mouth of the river this morning.
Just wondering if the white bass are still in the river. I have an elderly neighbor that enjoys eating them but can't get out to fish so told him I would see if I could get him some. Any info would be great. Thanks
Was out with Jeff Maleport today on a scouting mission. We covered a lot of water from the dam to The Lure. We ended with a giant smallie, one slot, a handful of legals and about 15 shorts along with a musky and a crappie. Water temps ranged from 48 in the river to 50 on the lake.
Been quiet lately. Anything happening?
Day trip with Ron on the wi river, I have to admit we ride front seat on the struggle bus today. We did caught fish some small ones,two legals and one large musky that we did not get in the boat (that’s a good thing). Water temp 48.7 when we left, nevertheless it was a beautiful sunny day and fishing. #aftcofishing J-Mata Fishing
Day trip on the cold and wind wi river, with Mark and Tristin. Jigging plastic and hard baits is what we did today. We caught some small mouths, musky,eyes,a very large sturgeon. We ended the day with some shorts 2 slots and 4 legals and one white. The current is still running good and water temp is down to 47.2. I can’t thank AFTCO enough for keeping me warm and dry no matter what the weather does!
Mary booked a full day trip for her and her husband Bob for his birthday. We had a really good day for numbers. We got four legal walleyes, one 24 inch slot fish and about 40 shorts. We released the one legal that was just touching 15. We also got about a dozen white bass but only kept four because they had never eaten them but wanted to try. The smallies were hitting really good on shallow rocks in slack water. We had six or seven of those too between 13 and 19 inches. All except a handful were caught on some kind of plastic. Ring worms, swim baits, and twitch tails.
Water temps were hovering between 50 and 51 degrees. The water level is way up from a couple days ago. Two gates were wide open. The big island up by the dam was just about completely covered and the little island is completely covered. There are still a lot of walleyes in the river but the changing water levels and dropping water temps are pushing them into small areas. When you find them, they'll eat.
