What a wet fall it has been. The lake is 5.93 high. We only have two ramps open. Isle du Bois state park, and the private ramp in the back of the marina. You can launch at the private marina ramp for $5. Hopefully they open the gates back up soon.
The good news is, it hasn’t messed up the fishing. The black bass, sand bass and catfish are biting really well. I haven’t crappie fished, so no report on them. The black bass like to get shallow this time of year, and now they have a ton of cover to get in. It is a target rich enviroment, for fishing shallow. Been catching them on a variety of baits. Lots of soft plastics, but spinnerbaits, frogs and traps are working well at times.
The sand bass are stacked up on the main lake on their normal deep ridges and humps. They have been a little shallower on them than normal. 20-25 feet has been best last couple weeks.
My bird poop catfishing is in full affect. Been having some decent luck and the big ones are starting to show up. Fun stuff if you haven’t ever done it.
Make sure and go follow my guide service instagram and facebook pages. I post a lot more on there now.
Here are some highlight pics from the last couple months.
