Out this afternoon from 1-4. When you are looking for very fast action whitebass are the go to fish this time of year. They will virtually hit anything you put in front of them and you can almost catch one every cast if you are on a big school. We kept 50 whitebass and released about the same in less then 2 hours. Switched up to jigging crawlers for an hour and landed 3 walleyes and caught a bunch more whities.

Nice. I voiced my opinion before they opened the locks because someone posted it on here. Jig fishing will be over as we know it within a few years on the Bago system.

I went out for a few hours in the afternoon yesterday on the south end. Caught a bunch of walleyes unfortunately only 4 over 14". Dragging jigs on the edges of the reefs seemed to produce the most action. Marked and saw a bunch of baitfish, and the walleyes all looked really healthy. There should be a ton of great fishing yet to come.

Did find few perch out of Lake Side Park, used hellgrammites and night crawlers. Moved around a lot but found couple boats clustered picked spot away in 11 ft and had some limited success. All in all nice to get out no major boat traffic nice and quiet and little wind. Good day.

Majestic, you must not do your bearings every year? you should be at least checking them yearly. you go on a trip and one of those blows out because water got in and ceased the bearing you will be hating life. pop em off, if the grease doesn't have water in it and it still looks like new you slam it back on. IF I have any water or the grease looks gray or milky, it gets done. That grease looks 10 years old....

clear, blue or gray grease doesn't look like that after two years of having water in it. Sweating

Hello,

Thinking of driving up Friday and trying my luck for whitebass, crappies, or walleyes. Never fished the area so any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Sunny
Fished 9/1 from 10:30am to 8pm. Not a very productive day for that length of time on the water. Fished 15 spots and landed 1 crappie, 1 walleye, several white bass and about 10-15 sheeps. All spots were within 3 miles of Stinky Point. Marked a lot of fish just couldn't get them to bite. There were a lot of baby flies so maybe the fish were already full! Thankfully we made it home before we realized the bearings on the trailer failed. Looks like my hands will have to get dirty before my next outing.

FISHING REPORT
9/2/15 12:08 AM CST
Conditions: Cloudy
Was out August 29 and 30 (Saturday and Sunday) and only caught one perch on each day. Nice 10.5-inchers, but only one each day. We caught 4-5 smaller walleyes each day as well in the 10-13 inch range. Same deal as last Summer except this time they were a bit bigger. Only caught a few sheeps each day. Caught several smallmouth on Saturday, but none on Sunday. We threw everything back.

Fishing conditions looked fairly good on both of those days and we worked 20-25 spots easy. Moving didn't help. Drifting didn't really help, either. Saturday bites were subtle or non-existent, Sunday bite was totally dead. Deeper water from 14-18 feet produced more hits, even though there weren't many.

Not sure what to say. That was the worst fishing on Winnebago we've ever had. Fishing east side near Quinney Road by the way. There was apparently another lake fly hatch nearby as there was a huge batch of small ones on the water and all over the boat. Perhaps the fish were loading up on them.

Oh well. I might get back out Wednesday night and try something else.

South of Fisherman's 10 to 14 feet of water. 2 10 inch perch 1 small walleye and a bunch of sheephead. Guess we'll have to give the fish a break for a while. Spoke to a fellow fisherman at the ramp who said perhaps Wis. should think about going to one rod per person like Minn. to lesson the fishing pressure. I guess it wouldn't hurt. I use one rod most of the time anyway.

Late report: Wind was coming out of the south on Friday Morning so I fished the backside of the reef with something I had in the tacklebox but never used. I had no luck on slip bobber and no luck with the chartreuse twister tail with 1/16 oz glow jig which is my go to. I thought of the two inch ripple shad made by powerbait and thought I would try it with a bright orange/yellow jig. The ripple shad was a bit large for a 1/16 oz jig head so I just bit off 1/4 of it. Sure enough, I had 8 walleye in the boat in probably 2-3 hours. I definetly will be trying the ripple shad again. I Did tip it with 1/3 crawler. Great day on the water to say the least.Ohhhh I did throw 3 smaller ones back and kept my 5.

Hockey I was out there also yesterday, but not by either group, I was by myself until around 10 when the big group disbanded and all come up by me. Anyhow, don't feel like you missed anything, it was horrible! Got 1 bite/1 perch 10 minutes after setting up. That was it for the rest of the morning, unbelievable! I am not one for moving around, but I did, couldn't find a fish, went up St Cats point by the other group, did not see a fish caught in an hour, so I left back to my spot, I did see the large boats coming in and leaving the harbor, they really don't care about the fishermen, I see it all the time there. Gonna stay on west side for awhile, much better luck, tight lines!
