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 !!

I had same thing happen last saturday. Heard a noise and splash and thump at side of my boat. 10 secs later a huge dead carp floated by. For next 2-3 mins we could see water swirling around it and see the carp moving and bobbing. Fatten up those big cats. Peace. My buddy swore he seen whites coming at it. He actually swore he seen the mouth open of a piranha. No more swimming for me on the big K. Smile Cool Smile

The carp got a herpes that kills only carp. Started up at Horicon and is working its way down. Fishing has been pretty interesting. I was panfishing and heard a thrashing in the water. The first time I looked I thought it was a carp on its last leg. The next time I looked and it was a third of a dead 6-8 lbs. carp. Then it disappeared? It came back up pretty close to me and I could see a pretty big fish feeding on it. Reminded me of when I was a kid at Butternut Lake and a huge Musky was trying to swallow a 17in. sucker. I threw my little panfish jig over by it and boom the fight was on. Ended up being a 12 lbs. cat. Good to see something eat these dead fish. Been getting 9-10 in. gills, bucketmouth bass from the size of your thumb to 17 in. rock bass, small water wolfs, cats of all sizes, perch, white bass and a few 12+in. crappies. T-2-T

14 more white bass & one 3 lb. largemouth casting. The paper said the reason for the dead carp is a virus that luckily only affects carp.

Did the water in the Kosh go up with all the rain we have been having. Is it still clear in the lower half.

18 White bass & 2 largemouths casting this afternoon. I can't get over how people stay on the water as the storms approach. Lightening can strike a mile out in front of the storm clouds. Take it from someone that has seen it happen. Anytime I hear that first rumble.....I'm gone. It's not worth loosing your life for an extra fish or two.

Thursday not a good morning to fish but we will try it anyway. Seems only the diehards out lately, hopefully the bad weather will miss us. I've spent several days out here past week, using tactics old Ernie taught me in the 70's, yes they still work today. He didn't have a GPS to find rock pile, used an oar and line of site. Grandson Nick with me today, only 8 but he will out fish a lot of people. Drifting corner of or over rock pile, using mainly half a crawler under a bobber, to keep from snags. Fished about 3 hours till rain got us, fairly good day. 9" gill, 16" cat, 2 walleyes 19 & 21, couple of other misses, but Nick handled them well. So its not quite the Dead Sea if you put your time in.

Launched at day light, GPS took me to rock pile, trolled the last 1/4 mile to it, nothing. Drift fished rock pile for about 4 hours, plenty of company. Not much happening, I got 2 gills, a sheep & cat. The two old boys regulars had 3 cats last time I check with them. Nice morning, trolled about a mile back towards river as leaving, zip. See what morning looks like.......
