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.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
