There’s been enough recent reports on Lake Wisconsin that we really don’t need another one of the same. Only I felt that tonight was worth reporting since it was so magical. The walleyes have been absolutely on fire and you can catch them on just about any presentation you want to throw at ’em. I know this because I’ve both done it and seen it done for a while now. Crank baits, jig and crawler, jig and plastic, slow death……all good candidates and effective.
I’m kind of a crank bait guy so tonight that’s what I started with as soon as I hit the water around 4:00 p.m.
This last weekend I had success in 12- 20 fow and have to believe those fish are still pretty close to that same location but it’s a longer boat ride for me. Tonight I stayed closer to home and fished 6′ to 10 fow all night. I had a double within the first 5 minutes and for the next two hours it just wouldn’t stop. One thing that was different about tonight was that there were a lot of really quality fish. I don’t know if it was the cool, cloudy, drizzly evening that turned on the fish but everything came together for my best warm weather Lake Wisconsin bite to date. The fish did die off around 6:00 p.m. but had a nice fluury around 7:30 again before I called it quits. Ended up with 10 short fish 11 legals and 3 slot fish. The only low point of the night was that I had no camera in the boat and I am going to be agonizing over that for a while as my slot fish were big and heavy. I also feel that if there’s no picture then it’s just a story. ALl I got are a few of the eaters from the night.
