It was a tough bite for us, glad you did well. Only two over 9", but the Sunfish where crazy for the waxies....We switched to minnnows, it was slow.

Small panfish were very aggressive, but anything worth keeping was very tight lipped. Kept 2 crappies over 10" and a 14" eye. Released a lot of small sunnies and crappies a yellow bullhead and a 24" eye. Not a bad evening of fishing but other than the bigger eye not very impressive either.

3 of us were fishing on a small lake outside of Webster, wi. Friday night we setup by 830 4 10" crappies within a few hours. Saturday morning we added 14 more....last night it was as if someone turned the switch off, absolutely nothing all night. This morning from 8 till 10 4 small snake northern that's it. I'm still "up in the air" whether or not storm fronts make a difference. I think it might.

My dad and I caught a 2 man limit of pannies yesterday and really struggled today. Fished the same water, same time during the morning, and caught 5. Not even the little pesky perch would bite. I have found exactly 24 hrs before the storm to be best. Example: 8am-10am Sat the fish were on fire. After 10 off like a switch! The storm hit us by 9:30 this morning with very finiky fish to go with it! I have found this to hold true with al species at least in the winter!

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
