Heading up near Fremont next week with my grandson who wants a northern pike. Lived here years ago and would appreciate any thoughts of where might be productive, as well as bait ideas. He is a great kid and would love to make this happen. Huge thanks in advance!

Fished yesterday morning out of Red Banks. 4 guys...9 Walleye, 4 little smallies, 1 carp and 3 small cats. 1/4 to 1/8 oz. jigs tipped with crawler drifting various spots. Talked to some guys who have been there for almost a week and they have caught plenty of Walleye with yesterday being the slowest. Water is up a little and not sure how long this latest "Run" will last. Figured I'd post this as no one else has been letting the folks know that Walleye have been running :) Only saw 7 boats today and not all were chasing the eye's.
Drift the lower stretches (Rat to the mouth) with 1/8 oz jig and half crawler. You may pick up some walleye, and you’ll definitely get bit...sheep’s, catfish, etc. As you work upriver, fish around any down timber you come across with a jig and half crawler below a bobber and you should find some panfish and bass.
Renting a boat with my family tomorrow, starting from Poygan and will likely head up the river. Only have fished with WWR for white bass, any suggestions on spots or what to pack for gear? Would like to get some crappie or panfish. Feel free to PM me any information. Very new and inexperienced so me and my boys will appreciate it!
Water is sky high, go elsewhere.
i was looking to try and fish the wolf for smallies this weekend or the next because i heard the bite is good. i have never fished the river, would anyone point me in the right area of the river to start and what to look for? thanks in advance

06/13/2020 Fished from Boom Island downstream through the Rat River area and into the mouth of Lake Poygan from 10:30am until 4:00pm. Used WRRig with minnows and flies.
At the mouth of Lake Poygan I fished the entire length of both rock walls along with floating the main channel. In this area I also used a night crawler in a gold Carolina Rig with Slo-Death hooks in both color red and gold.
Caught one sheepshead near Boom Island. No other bites. I did not see another fish caught by any boats.
I am done with the Spring2020 WBass run. I might try the second run in the fall.
