FISHING REPORT
7/26/15 7:22 AM CST
Was out on a night trip last night and caught a few! Fished from 7-11pm out in middle! Used 2 set lines 4 lighted slip bobbers. Shiners on bottom produced 2 cats, 4 eyes, and one northern. Got a few bullheads, goats, whitebass, eyes, catfish, and 1 perch on the slip bobbers w/crawlers and leeches! Bugs were bad when we turned on lights at dusk. If you are going to fish after dark bring a big spotlight. I have a 10 Million cp one I use. It's to shine approaching boats and let them know where you are. Lot of drunks out after dark ripping around. The big light blasted at them turns them real quick. If they are within 300 yards I turn it on them.

Area 51 thanks for the info. I have found cleaner water midlake along with current at times in years past. I have found the midlake current to hold fish if you can find it.Peace, Lar Big Smile Cool Big Smile

Ldob...algae wasnt that bad where we were,out from blackhawk Is,maybe because of slight current from the river.also we didnt notice the bugs until well after sun up,then it seemed like they were in small clouds and were in and out of them.it wasnt that bad but the little devils get stuck behind yur glass's.it seemed like most fish bites came where there was some weeds near shallower water.I would think on a day with a little wind it would push the algae & bugs off & away...fair winds....

was out before daylight this morning looking for crappies.when that didnt work we switched to trolling using 1/4 oz Beetle spins.put on a couple of split shots to keep them near the bottom and tipped with crappie minnows worked for a while. boated 3 short & 2 keeper eyes along with a 9" Northern.lost a couple of other hook ups,maybe sheeps.anyway we were off the water by 8am before the heat came up.the color that seemed best was black or green with a yellow stripe.our troll speed was as slow as we could go back trolling.released everything. Cool

Pea soup. Algae clogs up any baits.

Heading up there next week and was curious as to the water quality right now. I know earlier there was a lot of green in the lake along with some blue algae. Thanks

I trolled harnesses from 6am-10am. I went 1 for 6 which ended up being a short eye. All hits and the short came from the no bottom bouncer setup. Looks like the active fish this moring where higher up in the water column. The lake was like glass the entire morning.

FYI: bouys might not be placed in proper location! They are placed in proper sides of river. I always run 20 yards off tavern side of Blackhawk straight out 1/4 mile before veering to side. Have yet to hit anything other than floaters in 20 years on the lake.

Caution, the buoys are in the wrong position at the mouth of Lake Koshkonong/Blackhawk Island. If anyone knows who put them out, please let them know that.

As you travel down (any) stream, there should be red buoys on your left and green buoys on your right, if you are in the channel. The buoys currently on the right side as you head downstream and enter Lake Koshkonong are way too far right (or north west).

Here is a simple rule of thumb: As you boat downstream and enter Lake Koshkonong, keep your boat in the middle of the river or a little towards the Blackhawk Island side. Then as you enter the lake point the bow of your boat directly at the tip of Thiebeau Point and head towards it. During summer water levels get about 500 yards or more from the tip of the Island before you turn right or left.

Keep in mind that land on both sides of the river used to extend way, way, way farther out than it does now. So don't cut right or left too soon or you'll be looking for a new outboard or at the very least, a new prop.
