Three trolling boats were enclosed by commercial net fisherman today including myself. Some buffoon came up asked how the fishing was and got all caught up in my gear and just about broke a rod as he was telling us we had to move or we would get trapped in their netting operation. This can't be ok and I will be talking with DNR tomorrow to straighten it out. The net covered at least a couple miles of lake and there was no indication it was there until we were within 100 yards with a full trolling spread out. Irritating to say the least...if it was choppy out we never would have seen the buoys until it was way too late.

A little Sunday morning therapy. Out on the water at daybreak til about 11:00. Caught lots of fish but no legals. Cats, whitebass, nort, short walleyes and saugers, perch, and even a bluegill. Gill was pissed off at a flicker shad. Fun to get out even with the gales of mid-may a blowing. Looks like the night guys are doing better. Water was about normal pool height and fairly clean as best as I could tell.Peace, Lar Big Smile Cool Big Smile

Took a bit of tweaking from last week but the fish seem to be following the same pattern and are now just jumping in the boat...shallow Cranks are the ticket...location varies have to move with the school...common structure we found was gravel/muck transition and new weed growth...3 man limit from 10pm-3am

Fished 4-8pm today. Spent 2hrs drifting jigs and crawlers then finished up with trolling cranks. Left the water just before dark with only having boated 2 medium size pike. Slow day, but perfect weather.

Found em Smile...took awhile as its my first year on the lake but it seems they are taking a liking to crank baits ( X-Raps and Thunderstick Jrs.) at the shorelines (2-3 ft.) . All males so I'm assuming females are spawned out and back in the lakes as well...time was around 11 am to 1 am

I'm new to the Rock and Koshkonong. I know it's not the best pan-fishing in the world. Where would be a few good spots to check out?

Hey Nauga, I might not be a sissy anymore. I got out all day Sunday and we actually caught a few walleye/sauger though it took all day. Not a lot of action.

Was in boat right next to Nauga when he netted the fish for gramps. He was telling me the story on the river. Is a real story, congrats my friend.

LDob, nothing to do with Lake Koshkonong, but thought important. Check out https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/FlaxSeedOil2/info I was going to pm, but thought important that others may need this information.

My dad was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer 5 months ago. I wish my grandfather was still living to take him and my dad on one more trip. We are going up on Castle Rock for week in June. Dad, my brother, and I will have good opportunity for some of those last trips then. Tried to get him to Depere this year but just to cold for him. Good stuff Nauga. Im sure it wasn't easy but looks like he had the time of his life.This life is way to short. Peace , Lar p.s.What is it with those old guys. We used to fish pans and bullheads also. I don't think I have caught a bullhead in twenty years. Are they even still around?
