Madison report

6 posts in this topic

My wife and I hit the lake at approx 9 this am. We fished in water from 5-10 fow drifting or slowly trolling for eyes. I used 1 pole with a crawler harness and the other with a spinner and leech. Both worked as we caught a few eyes from 14-19 inches. Many others were picking up eyes approx the same size.

I talked with 4-5 people that were fishing for panfish and all said they did very well.

Not a great day but not a terrible one either.

Thank-you to the gang at Reel Fishing & tackle for giving me the directions to find some fish.

I did but I figured that Madison would have the least amount of traffic today.

I rarely fish on weekends or holidays due to high boat traffic, water skiers or pwc. My wife wanted to do a little fishing so, I had to think of a lake that would not be overrun. Madison was not to bad except for a few pwc.

Fished the 4th. Bass action was fantastic on the spot on a spot. Color seemed to make a difference on size of the fish. Baitfish action was a key. A few nice Walleyes mixed in with the Bass. Seemed to feeding on the small schools of Bullheads.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.
