FISHING REPORT
9/15/14 11:18 AM CST
Bunch of pro walleye boats and fishermen fishing out from the Stockbridge harbor right now. Looks like theyre pulling cranks. I know there are fish there, the hard part is getting them to go. We'll see what happens. Have had a few pro's drifting in the store picking my brain on the fishery.. Many people are sayin the fish are up the fox river, but i know better. There is a big school of fish there. water is very calm, cloudy, perfect walleye weather. Looks like the next 3 days are going to be very nice for fishing.

The tourney starts Thursday.

Looked at my personal notes from last year from my own personal perch fishing trips. It looks as though September 24th is when they started getting very active and then October 4th they were really poppin on the reefs until ice up! Most guys switch to hunting and miss out on some of the best fishing of the season come fall..

Good Luck and be safe out there!

Cant beat fresh perch filets for lunch! Worms and minnows produced with worms catching some true 12" jumbs! Also released a few real nice wb on minnows

Just wanted to post some information as a friend of mine was not aware of wave / weather information available for Winnebago. Great real time and forecast for waves

Also if you want to see live video Neenah launch has 2 web cams and Stockbridge has one.

Late start as kids went to bed. At the Neenah launch several were hitting white bass on #5 Flicker Shad in purple and chartreuse. Mansur Reef and Davis Point around 10 ft of water. They stated if the pelicans are around so are the white bass.

I headed out around 7:45pm 9/14 and went to Mansur reef first with no luck trolling long lines. I headed West of Mansur reef towards the bay (long N/S Reef along shore) and picked up a nice walleye on a purple #5 flicker shad around 10 ft of water around 9:30 pm. Caught some nice musky quality braided line near Outer Bar but that was about it.

Hoping to fish some with my two boys in the afternoon. If anyone has any reports I will look prior to heading out.

Best of luck and tight lines.

I realize there is another forum or thread for this question but thought I would throw out the question here. I bought a Humminbird 798ciSI fish finder earlier this year and finally saved up enough money to buy a chip for it. I fish Winnebago almost 100% of the time. Which chip is my best bet to purchase the Lakemaster or Navionics. Pros and cons for both would be appreciated. PM me if you like

Bringing some family from California to fish off of Deadwood Point(SE shore). Any info for perch would be awesome! Baits? Top or edges of reefs? Depths? We will have 2 7 year olds so not looking to motor to far. Hope to get a few for them anyway! Thanks on advance!

Ripn where is your bait shop located? Will stop and patronize you!

Some of the best times of fishing are ahead of us guys. I am receiving many emails about people quitting or wanting to quit walleye and perch fishing because it's getting tougher. The fish are well fed in this system this time of year. Don't quit, the fish are still there, it's just their bellies are full or they have "moved" to an "area" that you haven't fished yet or are now biting on a "different lure".

October/November can be boom times for fishin on ol lady Bago'.. This time of year can be a struggle for alot of people. We have all been "that guy" at some point in our fishing career in which we worked our butts off and have not caught a darn thing, but also on the flip side, I am sure we have also been "that guy" who has smacked em good too!

Many guys are tight lipped right now because of the Cabela's NWT Championship starting next Thursday out of Oshkosh. You are going to see some impressive weights being brought in, trust me, I know... It's going to be very busy on that side of the lake this weekend, just so you have a heads up.....

I know of one guy bangin' big walleyes on the east shore and also west shore. They are tight lipped, just like a cold front walleye...

Few things I can tell you, is this: if you haven't been a "jigger" and jigged much, START! If you haven't been a "troller" and trolled much, START!

This time of year, you can catch fish every which way imaginable. Back in my tournmanet days we fished the Cabela's Championship on a brand new stretch of river on the Mississippi river that we had NEVER fished before and we found that we could catch big walleyes burning white colored, jointed shad raps at 3.4 miles per hour as tight to the shorlines as possible! Not to mention we also caught humongus crappies right alongside the big walleyes too. The fish were very shallow!

Don't be afraid to speed up fishing walleyes when things are tough and on the same note, don't be afraid to slow way down and "bass-fish" walleyes also when things are tough. (That's another story)....

Perch reports are up and down. Guys are switching to small fatheads and seem to be doing ok on the perch with them. North of stockbridge has been ok out from St. Catherine's bay.

Whitebass are all around and there are alot of fish also in the fox river. If we get a more flat, calmer day, you will catch the whities on small little cleo's, swedish pimples, and small crankbaits. This weekend's weather looks great!!!

Of course it's taxpayer funded. Then the invasives show up, and guess what! More taxpayer money will be needed for cleanup work. It feels so good to be a participating taxpayer! That reminds me that I'm almost out of lube, time to get more.

Just a note that the deadline for comments on the Environmental Assessment for the proposed boat lift over the Rapid Croche Lock is September 15th. Go to www.foxlocks.org for more details.

A taxpayer funded boat lift just so that we can have a greater potential of invasive species in the Winnebago System - what a fantastic idea.

Any fishing reports from Stockbridge/quinney area? East side of the lake? I was there yesterday from 6 am to 11 am, was looking mainly for Walleyes and WB, used spinners, #6 salmo and nothing worked. Only thing worked was an impulse brush beaver on a jungle jig and I got 2 largemouth and one walleye!. Tried different spots mainly south stockbridge, towards brotherstown @ 7ft to 12ft. Any tips or recommendations on the spots? Thanks!
