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 know some guys who have been getting fish on big plastics, jointed Shad Raps and #4 and #5 Salmo Hornets.

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.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
