For all the newbies out on Ole Lady Bago....Make no mistake this lake will eat you and then spit you out and quick. This lake can get brutal on a windy day. I have seen this place so angry it actually scared me once or twice. I have seen 5-6 foot chocolate whipped white caps that would eat a 20 footer. You will get wet and you will break stuff on this lake if your not a fair weather fisherman. Give her respect or she will make you pay !

With the talk of waves at what wind speed does Winnebago usually get 2-3 footers?

I see these weekend is predict to be east winds at 13-18mph.

Cosmic not sure what you were seeing but I went out of black wolf and didn't see anywhere near 3-4' waves anywhere. Any way found fish tight to bottom in 8' of water only got a couple to bite spinnerbaits slow rolled. Water started out 43* this morning and by end of day it was 51-52 along west shore with. Couple channels around 55* but we need some sun and warm temps to get the bass moving more then what they are.

Moose1- If you're fishing on a boat, I find it that the Smallies are at every point on Bago. Usually between 5-8 feet. Otherwise if your looking for shore fishing. Asylum is a good one and Miller bay and Mennominee Park is a good place. You can catch Largies all along the shoreline. If you're ever in Neenah, Doty Island and Riverside is good for largies as well. Hope this helps and may you and your kids have fun fishing and Catch a Mounter! and by the way Senkos are great plastics for beginners. Otherwise try beaver tails, skirted jigs, spinner baits and Etc. If you have any questions on what bait to use, you can always look up on youtube.

I never bass fish Bago and about all I know is to pitch worms and hope for a bite for them. Or to catch smallies while walleye fishing by dumb luck. I think I might even have a frog hidden in some bag somewhere that hasn't even been taken out of the wrapper (gift I'm sure). Anyway, my son and the neighbor kids love to catch bass. They fish for them all summer long on the local ponds. I want to take them out on the lake for a change of scenery. Could someone give me some hints on where to target them, when and how? Apparently the shoreline of asylum bay by reading a few posts here and I'm guessing under docks, weeds, etc. in the west side channels. Yes I'm asking for areas that produce as I don't have tons of time to explore to figure out where to take the kids.

If anyone is generous enough to share, please send me a PM to keep the report board clean.

Thank you.

On that note we are getting crappie in the harbors under floats with minnows and jigging plastics. Have to be near some sort of structure for best results but have put 2 meals of crappie in the fridge/freezer in the last 5 days. It's been slow (to slow for impatient kids, just ask mine) but relatively consistent.

Went out from Black Wolf landing searching for some Smallies or largemouth. Greeted with 3-4ft waves. Not fun for first time out. Got to first area off of main lake channels were 45 degrees all the way back. Zero fish. Went back out to main lake spot for smallies and water was 39! Not good, plus still windy. Checked one more channel and water was in the mid 40's. Need a couple more days of warmer weather to get bass moving and biting.

4-19-14. Fished sat at asylem bay. terrible wind and waves get me off of water. No largemouth by shorelines yet. The muck was horrible BTW. Even a mepps was pulling dead weeds and thick muck at every cast. Topater frogs might be okay in this area when fish move in.

Lake still looks low. Not sure if the gap at Fisherman's rd is deep enough for some boats yet. Just a heads up. Mrt.
