This has been a tough year on Monona for numbers or consistency. I had a good morning on Saturday with 18 nice big keepers and not one short fish. Bite shut off when the sun came out. Fish were aggressive and liked a dead sticked minnow 5 feet off the bottom and also liked a purple ratso on a dropper with a spike or two. I had the whole lake to myself. Only in Madison will people pay to park and go to the Expo on the best fishing day of the year.
