Shore Fishing Troubles...

8 posts in this topic

If any of ya'll were to fish from shore this week, what would be the best choice?...I have tried the bridge in Madison numerous times and also the bridge on Cannon...I am thinking about Elysian...I would prefer walleye but crappie, bass, northern would suffice...

Well if you must know.I have had luck on Elysian,Lake crystal @boat landing and Hanska from either public boat launches.

However,I think (just an opinion)that Hanska fish taste kinda........funny

Elysian would a good bet this time of year!

The BAROMETER was up to 35.5 inches today. WOW. It has been higher these last few days then I can recall in the last 2 years!

Up north we would spend a lot of time in Oct/Nov shore casting around moving water - river/creek inlets, things like that - pitching size 18 Raps.

Does that same thing happen around here?

Yes but you don't necessarily need to go that big for a lure profile. Jigs and plastics also have their place too.

I was out there last night. Caught 3 16 inchers and my 9 year old lost one about 21 or 22 inches. We used slip bobber and 1/16 oz chart. or a white jig head in about 6 to 7 ft of water.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
