      Nice! Was out there this weekend and most of the 6-8' beds were empty. Definitely moving on out.

  2. Got my brother out this morning for some panfishing. Crappies and bluegills staging on weed edges getting ready to spawn. Great action on all sorts of live bait ...more and soft plastics.

      Nice catch! Thanks for sharing!
  4. Very healthy walleye population this year. Have caught many on rock bars and on weed edges mostly in the 13-16” range. Shad raps, jig and crawler, and swimbaits ...more have been working best.

      Nice Smallie!👍
  6. Walleyes are still around the dam, but the bite has slowed a bit. We were able to bring in a dozen or so, all on a lindy rig and minnow.

Fish mainly in Dane and Columbia Counties in WI. Get to make the occasional northern Wisconsin cabin trip in the summer searching for pike and ...more muskies on Soo Lake.
