Water is low again this fall! Indianford dumping and almost no current in the river! Looks as if another poor fall and winter walleye bite to follow! If we could only have that magic 7' lake level! Oh well I guess that just means that many more left for the spring run! just be hauling the boat to lake wis for my fall walleye fix!!??

Took the boat out to try out my Lowrance Structure Scan HD on the river and then on to the lake for fishing. Not much happening on the river so I set out three rods and trolled Thiebeau to the rock pile. Picked up this big girl at Thiebeau while I was adjusting the lines and she pulled the board straight back. By her girth, I thought she was bigger than she was--but the truth-teller put her at 25" with a 14" girth. I placed her gently in the water and she swam off to fight another day. Hooked a couple of mid thirties pike and got off the lake before the winds really picked up. all fish caught on a blue and white shad #7.

water 65ish and a little dirty. Pulled assortment of cranks at varying speeds. One snake nort and one 16 ish re eye lost on a pour net good by myself . Need to get a frabill. That was it for me. Talked momma into flying up to Pete for an afternoon troll and some gambling. That's how it is once you hit 49 yrs old. Fish and gamble amap. Life's to short go live the dream.p.s. As long as you have some money to do so.PEACE, Dobber.

I plan on taking the new boat out this Saturday to try my luck. Any advice from the lake pros? I am going to start out trolling the middle between the peninsulas, but would drifting with crawlers work? I am looking for either Crappies or Walley. Any specific colors working this time of year?

Caught a mixed bag of fish from 8:30 to 1:pm. The wind came up pretty fast and we got tossed abit. Only bait that caught fish was a perch Taildancer. One small walleye, large sheep and whitey, several mid 20's pike an one 37" pike that we had to swing back on to get in the net. Not bad for a windy morning.

Hello all,

I am currently in the process of moving. My new home will be a block from Lake Koshkonong. I enjoy fishing, but am not expert. Would enjoy the opportunity this fall to meet some individuals who are very familiar with the lake that could give me some good advice on fishing this lake. Both open water and ice fishing.

Thank you Kurt

Nice report Bob...I did just the opposite of you yesterday with poorer results. I left the boards at home and drifted the junk and rock-pile and Newville area-2 lines out with slip bobbers (big minnows and small leeches) and lobbed a gulp out with my 3rd line...3 whites and a small eye...We are probably a couple weeks away from the suicidel 3 inch whities that hit lures bigger than they are...my record is 3 of them on one shad rap...anyone beat that ?

Fished the lake from 4-8:pm trolling a variety of cranks. That was the key along with speed. Started out with Flickershads and Matzou shads and caught 4 short walleyes immediately. Speed was 2-2.3 mph and species caught included channel cats, sheeps, short eyes and 30"+ pike. Increased the speed to 2.8-3.1mph and started to catch keeper eyes in the last hour of daylight on shadraps in perch/firetiger colors. caught 7 eyes in that hour, released a 26" and 24", lost three at the net and boxed these two 17"+ for dinner. I lost a few more walleyes as they were not hooking up very well and I was using 12' rods and shortlining (25-35')--hard to net fish with a 7' net and a 12' rod.

Trolled today from daylight to 3:45pm. We covered every favorite spot and places in between. Caught about a dozen walleye and northern, all undersized. It was a nice day for a picnic and boat ride. All fish returned unharmed even though we had to snip the lure from a deeply hooked pike.

Headed out at daylight yesterday to fish the rock pile, only one there what a surprise !! After couple hours gave it up as a bad idea, as wind picked up. Headed back into river just to snoop around, seemed not much there either. So loaded up and went home. Not as many dead carp as a couple days before, was a little stinky out there past week. About 4 in the afternoon, Nick says grandpa lets go trolling, so we swapped out poles and headed out. Harbor Rec to the mouth and a dozen circles later we called it a night. Not a total loss, 15" wally, 18" sauger, and a 22" snot rocket that screwed up everything. At 8 years old, he is beyond his years as a fisherman, does it all, except drive the truck. I was net man on all 3 fish, is a little scary when he takes rods out of holders with fish on, but haven't lost a pole yet. Should go look for some of T.T.'s gills, but don't know where he hides them !!
