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.

Anybody know why these carp are dead? Is it the carp herpes the DNR just released?

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.
