FISHING REPORT
7/23/14 4:50 PM CST
Made it out on the water at about 8:30 this morning and fished until about 1. Very, very slow day. Launched by the Lure and headed to the west side. Then south. Then back east and then to the north side of the flowage. Working small humps and breaks in 7-20 fow. We varied the baits in size, color, and running depth, and brand. Only managed about five whitebass and one crappie. No walleyes or cats. The algae is VERY thick. The wind was working it south. North of the Lure wasn't horrible but the further south you went the thicker it got. Water temp was 74 when I got on the water and was 78 when I left. Usually I mark a lot of fish in the ares I run but today I hardly marked anything. Even in the channel. I'm guessing the algae bloom and "cold" front/high pressure system is the culprit. Will be back again soon! Good luck!

Kind of a fishing report – I’ve been fishing the river above Biron for too many years to count but after catching 79 “shorties” without a legal one this spring I decided to try something different. Since I live only ten minutes from Nekoosa and never fished Petenwell (hard to believe) I started reading the posts on this site going back to spring fishing and into last year and decided to try trolling with planer boards. This past Friday was the accumulation of everything I learned with the help of all your knowledge. With a friend from out of town along we started out at Long View Point and headed to the Lure, the first ½ hour 45 minutes was pretty comical trying to get set up but after we settled down the fishing began and the first fish I caught was a 19” keeper walleye on a flicker shad “bloody froggy”, after that we caught one shortie, one slot 21”, a few white bass, and two cats. We had a great time and just want to say thanks to all of you that put in the time, especially the guides, and still give out great information for other people to have it a little easier and make it enjoyable.

HUBIE What i do to find crappies is troll small cranks on the main lake. #4 hornets work the best. you will have to go threw alot of white bass. Once you catch a crappie run over that spot a few times to locate them. Out infront of the lure on the east side. long view on the west side has had some nice crappies all summer.Also another way would be to slip bobber fish the main channel. there is alot of wood there and it holds alot of fish. If you head to the river you can fish trees that have fallen in the river. Weedless jigs tipped with half crawler works the best Wink Wink Guys if you launch your boat on the west shore of petenwell. Long view boat launch is all good to go. the power company Cleaned all the sand out from the ramp. For more pictures and videos check out my facebook page. Green water walleyes guide service Also you can follow us on twitter. If you looking to book a guide trip? I have these dates open in august 4th,5th,6th,7th,9th,10th and a few days lator in the month Big Smile

Anyone fishing besides the fishing guides? Catching any crappies. If so are you catching them in the channel or what depths? Any info would be great, thanks.

Hit the water today at 6am for a full day guide trip. I fished with 2 really nice guys who didnt want to go shopping with there wives today. Water temp is finally on the rise with today heat wave. At 6am water temp was 70 and when we left around 3pm water temp was 75.8 It was kind of a brutal day with all the wind blowing from the south. We trolled cranks and board from 6am till noon. Afternoon we ran to the river and jigged for the last few hours of the trip. Big Smile Big Smile

Work the flats and channel edges. Run fit 10 to 30 feet of line out and just go. I don't catch a ton of walleyes but I get a few and always manage more wb than anyone could ever want. Wb are everywhere. You can be over 30 fow or digging your baits into the mud in 3 fow and you can bet you're going to catch wb. The only crappies I seen to find are near or on the channel. Walleyes for me while trolling are a little mystery. But those are normally in the 6 to 16 fow range.

I troll the edges 6-15 ft. You can run your baits down about five feet. The walleyes do suspend on Pete and Castle. Lots of trees so running your baits high will save you money.

My son and I have fished Castle Rock for the past 3 days without much luck. We are going to be on Petenwell the next 3 days. A couple questions if I may. Are you trolling the channel itself, edges or flats? Do you run baits on or near bottom or do the fish suspend? I come from pools 12 & 13 of the Mississippi River where everything relates to bottom.

Thanks for any advice.

Second guide trip of the day. I was out with matt trotter and his 2 sons from Iowa. We hit the water at 3pm. Water temp was 74.4 We started out trolling cranks and boards for the first couple hours of the trip. We trolled #4 hornets all afternoon. After a couple hours of trolling we switched it up and pitched jigs in shallow water. Half crawler weedless jig worked the best.Between both guide trips today we ended with over 100 white bass,10 crappies,7 smallies,1 large mouth,50 plus cats,8 keeper walleyes,47 short eyes and 27 slot fish.
