Conditions: Sunny
Was out today 4/17. Started out on haystack reef and caught one walleye in 5 feet of water. We then moved to Stevens reef and come up with nothing. after that we headed over to the west side of garlic island with the same result. We then swung around to the east side in 5 feet of water and started to hit it. We saw a few people get there limit and many more catching fish. We only ended up with 6 but still a productive day on the water. We used slip bobbers with a small minnow on a jig.

Had a great day on Bago fishing crappies. We were fishing the bays on the west side and did well fishing small minnows under a slip bobber. We also had some good luck fishing the channels around pilings. If you are not catching crappies just keep moving until you find them. Good Luck.

Fished this afternoon for around two hours. When the sun went behind the clouds caught 3 walleye in 20 minutes. The sun peaked out again and they were gone. Fishing in four feet of water on the west shore.

Just wanted to say thanks to Tim at Get 'em Hooked Guide Service for taking my uncles and myself out on an action filled day casting and jigging for walleyes. Kept our 15 and released some big females.

Fishing was poor in Stockbridge Harbor yesterday. Out of the hundreds of people fishing it only a few fish caught in isolated spots during daylight hours. At times its shoulder to shoulder fishing which is not very pleasant. Some reports on here and facebook have turned this spot into a circus. Puke

First time on Bago this year. 4 to 8pm. Started out looking for crappie. No such Luck. Moved to the mouth of the river and pitched jig/minnow for walleyes. Guys were trolling all over the place. I didn't see much caught. We fished one spot for 15 min, then moved. We fished the next spot for about 1 1/2 hours and caught 7 walleyes. We kept 3 nice sized fish and released the remainder of smaller fish. We used stinger hooks witch helped on several fish.

Fished shallow rocks on West Side near shore with firetiger flicker shad and wally diver. Got 6 wallys, lost several others along with some big sheepheaders. Cast onto the rocks and real slowly back in worked for us. 2-5' of water. I believe dirty water is holds more fish. Good luck and friday and sat night should be awesome. The fished turned on just before the sun hit the horizon for an hour.

Got Rod. Walleye fishing can be fantastic at night this time of year. Just remember shallow shallow shallow. Rocky shorelines and shallow humps. 1-3 feet of water. Shallow running cranks are best. Id give a locating but that can change daily. Just take a bass fishing approach and keep moving till you find active fish. Good luck.

Well after striking out and getting skunked for the first time on bago last Saturday I was planning on trying again this weekend with the wife BUT after getting to work today I was informed I will be here this weekend Crying looks like the only time I will have to fish is at night. So I have a question for some of you guys that get to fish it more than me. How is the night fishing? I have not seen any reports from anyone fishing at night. Just started targeting walleye last summer after moving up here and to be honest I have never fished walleyes or crappies anywhere at night before so night fishing them will be new to me. Any helpful tips and or info will be greatly appreciated I am not one to ask much for help I am pretty good with using my electronics and figuring it out on my own but I will admit this lake is giving me fits but after getting a taste of it last summer I am addicted and just trying to get the wife into it a little more. All she ever wants to do is fish for catfish. Thanks in advance guys P.M me if you want so we don't clog this thread up.

walleye fishing was good on Winnebago today, except for the people keeping waslleyes over 20 inches. More than one boat were keeping the large walleyes. SAD/these are the spawners.
