Anything Happening on Madison?

4 posts in this topic

My family and I are camping at Bray Park this weekend and wondering if it is worth renting a boat or not. I would like to get the kids out and do some panfishing. Thanks in advance for any help!

There are numerous sunfish to be caught in the narrows. You need to sort them out, however, as most of them are small. A decent spot is on the northeast side of the main passageway through the narrows in 6 to 8 feet of water. Go about 50 feet northeast of a line running along the shallowest part of the narrows. If your kids want action and don't care a lot about how big the fish are, they will have a blast. There are large sunnies in the lake also, but I do not know where they are. Find weeds in 8 feet of water and you will probably find them. Hope you and the kids have a good time.

Norselander, Thanks for the post. Well I was going to rent a boat and take my 6hp to put on it. It would not start. So we were stuck with shore fishing. We found some shore areas that we caught some fish really, slow. It was a nice fall day.

On another note we saw on shore at least 4 dead northerns. Any Ideas, gut hooked, poor release, or what. I thought it was strange to see.

There have been some nice crappies being caught, but you have to fight with the sheepheads at the same time.

      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.
