Pool 4

5 posts in this topic

I have never fished any of the pools but was wondering about pool 4 in particular. Is this catch and release or are the fish (Walleye) ok to eat? Just curious.

Open season year round. Limit is 6 and minimum size on walleye is 15". And the fish are OK to eat. Note of caution. There are a lot of saugeye in the system and The DNR hasn't made it clear what constitutes a wally versus sauger versus saugeye. You can keep 14" sauger but you had best be sure of it.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
