TRAPPERONE The white bass are up in big numbers below Nekoosa dam! I have been up there last 2 days catching white bass.Early morning,Evening has been the best! Mid day they move out off the bank to deeper water and move back towards shore hour before dark. Guys are casting small spinners from shore. Few guys are casting 3 ways and flies.

Walleyes are still being caught in the river. Mostly smaller males 14 and under.

Catfish bite has really turned on in the river and lake.

I had a chance to watch the DNR shock and tag fish today below the Nekoosa dam. When i talked with them they Had a few smallies they fin clipped and measured. They also had 17 sturgeon they measured,weighed and put a small micro chip just under the skin. Sound like down the road the DNR is looking at having a hook and line season on petenwell. Way it sounded is there has been a stocking program through the dnr on stocking sturgeon in petenwell. Big Smile Big Smile

Just an update on the Musky stocking on Petenwell yesterday, conducted by Consolidated Musky Club Inc.(CMC). Other than the temps being too warm at a couple locations, forcing us to adjust our stocking locations, everything went great. Several folks were there to help distribute the fish, and the DNR fin clipped a portion of our stocking for future survey's. Again, thanks to all involved. Based on the size and condition of these scrappers(14-17"), we should be enjoying several of them in a few short years.

Best regards,

Jason Schillinger CMC

Went out on "Pete" this morning for a few hours. The lake was as flat as a piece of glass and it warmed up fast. I had a jacket and sweat pants on for the trip out, but came back in a t-shirt and shorts. Hit four different locations with dead rods and jigs. Lots of "shorties Again, and four "Keepers" that just made it by a whisker for being legal. All went back in the water. Water temperature by mid-morning was 51 on the south end and 60 at mid-lake.

Keep a tight line!!!

Was out Sunday rigging some spots on the lake. No wind to speak of. Had some good fishing with a couple of oversized fish and 6 from 16.5 to 19 inches. One spot my good friend and I really got into the catfish too.

Greetings,

Consolidated Musky Club Inc. will be stocking our Muskies(400) into Petenwell in Wood County this Monday, 4/18/16. We were able to procure yearling fish at 14-16", which will equate to much better survival. We'll also be stocking another body of water that day, for a total of $5500.00 in Muskies. We also plan to stock another $5,000.00 in fall fingerlings in September or October, in addition to the 550 fingerlings stocked last September in Nekoosa, so the future does look bright.

Thank you to all who have been supporting the club for the past several years, as you are the reason that this flowage Musky population was resurrected in the 1980's and continues to be maintained.

Special thanks to: Don Kempen Mr. and Mrs. Chuck Schauer Ray Kittell Memorial Todd Forcier Brad Janecek Wisconsin Conservation Aids Advanced Disposal Portage Musky Club Several others

To get involved(looking for a board member right now), or to get more information on the stocking, feel free to contact me.

Thanks,

Jason Schillinger Consolidated Musky Club Inc. Wisconsin Rapids, WI muskyj@charter.net

Went out on "Pete" this morning, first time on the lake this year. Nice and sunny, but with a 15 mph wind with higher gusts it was a bit cool. Worked dead rods with minnows, and a jig with a ring worm along channel edges. Lots, and lots of "Shorties", and two "keepers". Water temp was 44 towards the south end, and 47 near Monroe Park. The bite was fast early , but slowed quit a bit as the morning progressed.

Keep a tight line!!!

Anyone interested in fishing the Castlerock Musky daze tournament, should email me at marksaemisch@hotmail.com

This tournament along with other things that Muskies Matter Inc. has done helped raise money to stock $19,000 worth of muskies in the last 6 years. If everything keeps going correctly it will be $23,000 in 7 years, and we are going to be stocking 1000 perch this year as well. So if you want more fish in the lake. E mail me and get with muskies matter inc. in what we are doing. I believe we are going to do the perch every year now as well. call for questions. 608 415 1231

P.S. anyone that used to fish Todd's tournament should check this out. It is done allot like with his, as he left a great example. Kudos to him.

Took the boat out for it's first spring shake down this afternoon launching at Chester Creek. First thing we notice was numerous Fyke nets set out by the DNR. White buoys with white flags on top. Just a few shorts boated and no keepers. No white bass yet either for us. Got a chance to chat with the DNR about their nets. Pretty cool deal.

I had a chance to fish with"Mark Walters"for the last 3 day both day and night. Mark is a well known righter for over 60 plus news papers and magazines.Mark also is big in to getting the youth in the outdoors.

I also had a chance this week to fish with "Lee Tauchen" From lee lures. Lee is the owner and maker of the PelAgic. Lee also has a nice line of hand maid top water muskie/pike lures.Lee is a full time muskie guide in Green Bay and On the Madison chain.

We fished shallow rocks during the day and at night. Water temp has been 40 to 41 and a little warmer in the afternoon. We have been doing really good at night casting cranks. #10,#12 Huskey jerks. During the day we have been fishing tight to shore out of the current 1/8 oz,1/4 oz jigs with 4" ring worms in bright colors. We also have been spraying both are cranks and ring worms down with Live walleye formula scent from Baitmate. All these fish have been caught in the river.I would say a little more than half of the walleyes in the river have spawned. There still are a few females full of spawn. Not all walleyes will head to the river to spawn. For the walleyes that do spawn on the lake will spawn in the next 2 weeks with warmer water temps. Won't be long and the white bass should move up river to spawn. Few guys have been catching a few white bass in the lower part of the river around browns creek area. For the guys calling and asking about places to buy "Ring Worms" Papa's Live Bait and Tackle 608 565 2174 has a full stock. Also Rodger at "Timberline" in Wisconsin Rapids is fully stocked as well.

Good luck,Be safe Big Smile Big Smile
