Any quick tips for white bass/walleye or ? Going to take the boat out for one last outing this evening and then winterize it for the winter as harvest season keeps me plenty busy. Fishing out of Neenah this evening.

Also if anyone wants to share tips and tricks for fishing summer on Bago at night I find I can free up time at night but didn't have that much luck the few times I went out this past late summer. PM me. I plan on getting planner boards and real trolling rods/reels this winter so currently I'm flat lining or jigging. I think 9:30 pm was the latest I caught a walleye and I have no problems fishing till 1am. I did more learning the boat and electronics so was getting what I want done but next year would like to put a few more in the net. Normally fish out of Neenah at night when I go.

Thanks!

Bite has been fine for myself and all my buddies. I would say the past 2 years have been very good in soft and hard water seasons.

I've been fishing out of Pipe steadily all summer. On average my bite has been lower than previous years. During my last 5 outings my best day was 3 perch and that's fishing 13 different spots over a 7 hour period. Reefs I have fished with little success include Long Point, Abrams, 3 mile reef, Calumetville reef,and various spots in between. I recently talked to a fish biologist out of Oshkosh and he advised me that the whole lake was knocked out of kilter because of the severe winter. Haven't given up for the year but it has been pretty discouraging.

Water temps were 52.9 to 53.5 on Sunday afternoon. I would assume it would be in that range yet.

The bite has been very tough this week. They bite great one day and the next three days it will be very hard to land anything worth while.

I'd stick to jigging or rigging minnows or crawlers for the walleyes.

With 40-50 mph winds, I doubt anyone will have any info from today.

Fin, I was on Bago yesterday for about four hours. I tried trolling cranks and then spinners. Both deep and on reefs. For only the second time this year, I was skunked. Not one single walleye. Not even a whitebass. Only Sheeps... This is also my first year of fishing into October. Talk about the "school of hard knocks"...

It was still better than a good day at work!

I've never fished Bago in the fall. Is it better to fish the shorelines and shallower reefs, casting cranks and jigging? Or is it still worth fishing the deeper reefs? Any assistance would be appreciated! Thanks, Fin

Fished from Asylum Point to Mansur and everywhere in between today from 7-1. Tried trolling cranks, drifting, jigging, anchoring, casting cranks, etc. Fish were not on the reefs or shorelines! Ended the day with 1 White Bass and a Smallie. Brisk morning but still a good time on the water! Plenty of boats out hopefully others fared better than us today!

To those of you that kept your boats out and didn't winterize them yet and are still fishing, You win!!

The fish are BANGIN RIGHT NOW!

Big smallies, whitebass, perch and walleyes are all very tight to shore. Have had several reports coming in from guys doing very well. 9 feet of water and less is the depth to work.

Local kids are smacking alot of bass from shore tossing crankbaits also. The weather looks great for the next few days, get out and start catching again after the "September Lull"!

I myself will be heading and having some fun with these fish cause the best bite of the year is starting right now!

See ya on the water....
