      Good times on bago

    1. If you're looking for action, white bass at the mouth of the river will consistently be available. Otherwise the reefs just out from Oshkosh will have a nice ...more mix. On calm days, use slip bobbers with live bait, on days where the wind is blowing, lindy rigs.

      I ate very well while I was UWO.

      Call Rippn-Lips Tackle Company. It's a bait and tackle shop on the East side of bago. Bill is the owner and he was a guide and tourney angler before he opened ...more the shop. He can hook you up with great info.
