Just wondering how everyone did this weekend. Went to mad lake saturday night. Caught 2 10 inch eyes and a few sheepies. Was slow only fished from 8:30 - 10:00. Took dad out to washington this morning fish 8:15 -10:45 and ended with 3 fish. Kept two 16's. Lost 4 at the boat including what looked to be a 23-24 incer. okay fishing but great weather and company. Will be out again next weekend, how did everyone else do?

We fished Madison too, what a zoo. We should have waited until about 7:00 too get out there. Despite having some a$$ jet skier running around us in 5' of water we kept 3 eyes from 16-17" and lost 3 near the boat, one nice fish that looked too be 20+".

One of my neighbors on Washington hosted a company fishing contest Saturday. Big fish was just over 6lbs. I don't remember what the rest of the catch was, but it wasn't bad.

Wow! Sounds like some nice fish.

Any idea what has been working out there lately?

It would be fun to catch some fish tomorrow night during our FM get-together. Any info you have would be appreciated. Thanks!

Since you have been so helpful to many people on this site with your reports and tactics used during all seasons I would be glad to tell you what has been working for me on Washington. You may call this dumb luck but I started fishing all of the deeper breaks on Sunday with zero fish, bored with that I put on a spinner bait and started bass fishing. That's when the walleyes started biting, caught two bang bang. Switched up put on a weedless lead head and Gulp 3" minnow and caught a half dozen more. The size was from 17" to 24". All fish were realeased. I was in 5'to 8' of water by the north access. For what it's worth I hope it helps good luck.

James Walleye I'm thinking that was me on the jetski, and I will appoligize to you. I just got the a jetski and didnt want to venture out to far from shore, was just getting in some practice. Very sorry because me and my husband are very big fisherman too and I know how annoying they can be. Anyways glad to hear that you caught some fish even with this a$$ screwing it up for you. wink.gif

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
