Does anyone know if vehicles are being driven on Bowstring? Thanks in advance for any reply.. Stan C.

Does anyone do any good for walleye on bowstring during the winter. We have done some good over the years for crappies off the north end, but never caught any eyes. Guess we really never target them either.

Any pointers? I am guessing since we are usually fishing somewhat suspended for crappies we aren't as likely to get the eyes mixed in.

Thanks for the replies. Will be hitting the area this weekend.

the only time i had any luck on bowstring for eyes in winter was in march what does that tell you. crappies are always hit and miss on that lake. good luck trying and let me know how you did. ive alwayes caught crappies about 12 16 inches off the bottom on the bow.

6 of us stayed at Geigers Trails End. Great cabins. Lots of Jumbo's and a about 15 crappies a day from thurs. thru today. Crappies were all a srong morning bite get out there before the sun. Had to start keeping the northers to pickle since there were so many around scaring off the perch. Couple of whitefish, and 4 walleys the whole time. constant action for us just had to cull through them for some decent keepers.

What kind of depths were you fishing? Were you out in the deep stuff or? Not looking for exact spots, more like some general info.

mostly 17 is where we found the jumbos and around 21 (thats w/the transducer level w/ the bottom of the ice) for the crappies. The crappies were all early morning before sun up until just after sun up. all on the north side of the lake. Try to the east of the lone white perm. Good Luck.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
