Was out over the past 3 days fishing, awesome until cold front yesterday. Only managed a few keeper eyes but all the whitebass you wanted to keep. Took my 76yr old father out on sat. he had a great time. 8' foot of water 10" of the bottom in the backwaters. slip bobbers were the key. Fish almost every throw. We were throwing back 12" and 13" white bass as to not have to clean to many. A lot of the white bass had spawn in them already. Wink

Got home yesterday, after fishing 5 days on the lake and in the river. Lots of small eyes almost everywhere, on fatheads and plastic. Picked up only 3 legals, and two slot fish (23 and 26 inches), plus crappie, cats, goats, and white bass. While fishing the south end of the lake, and motoring to the south dike from the east buoy line, the sonar lit up like a Christmas tree, so we dropped in the MinnKota, and jigged around. Non-stop white bass action on jig/minnow, small plastics, and small jigging spoons. We played there for an hour or so, then went on looking for eyes. Two boats showed up to troll the school, and were also popping them in steady.

Also, new owner (as of May)at the Petenwell Bait shop on Z by county park. Ron and Sue sold to Matt,(who some of you may know as the guide who doubles up with Larry Smith at times). Good supply of bait, as well as other staples, and gas pumps for the boat and truck, very convenient if you're fishing that side of the lake. Matt also guides on Petenwell and other waters.

Kurt from Oak Creek, Wisconsin booked a morning trip on "Pete" along with his friend Joe. Another beautiful morning to be on the water. Light winds, and sunny skies makes for a nice fall day. We started the morning jigging and dead-sticking on the south end, then trolled for about an hour. Finished at noon with 1 in the slot at 26", 36 "shorties", 1 crappie, 1 perch, and 18 big white bass. Big Smile

Keep a tight line!!!

I have read about using flies for walleyes, but I do not know where to get them. Do you make them, or buy them from someone?

Was out today on a half day guide trip with 3 really nice guys who have homes east of the flowage. Water temp at 7am was 62.2 and when we left at 1pm the the water temp was 73.3 lake was flat calm all morning very little wind out of the south east. Lake is still very dirty. Also some spots on the main lake still have a little green. We started out trolling the river in 6 to 10 fow with #5 flickers. We didnt stay long in the river. There was alot of weeds,trees and leaves floating around on top. We had to clean our lines every couple minutes. We did manage a couple walleyes and some big white bass there. Later we ran out to the main lake. We trolled a flat in 10 to 12 fow. There we also pulled cranks and boards. #5 flickers worked the best at 1.7 to 2 for us today. We ended the day with big mixed bag of fish. Walleyes,crappies,goats,cats,white bass and 1 nice muskie..... Sound like a nice weekend! Good luck be safe catch lots of fish Big Smile Big Smile

Jeff from Beloit, Wi booked an 8 hour trip on "Pete" for today. He has fished the lake for many years, but wanted to find some new locations and presentations to use. We jigged and used dead-rods on a couple of mid-lake humps, on the bouy line, and at Longview, then went to the river and pulled flies at Yellow Banks, Brown's Creek, and Chester. Finished with 38 "shorties, 1 "keeper", 1 in the slot, 23 white bass, 2 sheephead, and 1 crappie. Big Smile

Great day on Petenwell. Fished with Jerry of Angler's Pride. I have been fishing annually with Jerry for 6-7 years. These are my best trips I take every year. Today we caught 20 fish, 2 keeper walleyes, one slot 22" and 17 other fish. I look forward to my trips with Jerry every year. Big Smile

Here are three Paul charlie and I got the other day and into the night. We also hooked into 2 sturgeon on accident, but it added to the fun. Been on lots of big fish lately, which is great but seeing the smile on this kids face was just as good as catching any big fish.

First time on 'Pete'. Went out on Friday afternoon by the south dike trolling for walleyes and white bass, very windy. Found large schools of white bass in 20-30 ft of water- bites on almost every cast. 1 small walleye.

Saturday went on the river. Eventually found walleyes (along with white bass, cats, sheephead, crappie)on current breaks along river and sloughs. Slip bobber and jigs. 20 shorties in all between two boats.

Thank you all for your help in learning 'Pete'. Can't wait to come back.
