Lake Mendota Fishing Reports

1 post in this topic

I see there has not been much activity here so I am posting a fishing report from a local expert. Personally I haven't had much success yet, mostly rough fish but the weather has been great!

Walleyes continue to be active at night on Lake Mendota. Try throwing stick baits and swim baits in 3-6' of water. Fish the points, inlets and outlets. Panfishing action continues to be in the bays and channels. Lake temp. for Mendota is in the upper 40's to low 50's. Smallmouth bass have been cruising in 6-12' of water along the Univ. shoreline. Catfish were active today in Cherokee Marsh. Cutbait seemed to be working the best. Lake Monona Bluegills have been in 2-5' of water in Squaw Bay, in front of Olin Park, and Monona Bay. Bass have been in the shallows in the Yahara River around the piers. Shore fishermen have been having good success for Bluegills at Tenney Park locks and in the inlet at Olin Park. Crappies have been active on the south end of Lake Waubesa in 5-8' of water. Minnows fished under a bobber have been working best. Musky action has been slow, but some reports of active fish have been reported on Lake Waubesa and Wingra.

    • Hilly says yes, yes, yes...and yes, and yes... It was putin with hair.    
    • "Build a wall".. Good idea ? Bad idea ? That's debatable.   Want to stump a liberal ? Ask them what is hillary's plan to control illegal immigration ?
    • Who knocked her out? That certainly isn't Trump. Is that Putin with more hair?
    • View from the ground blind.  Straight ahead there is a secondary trail moving left to right that goes around some wet lowland and that intersects with a larger main trail that was out the window to my right that skirts the lowland on the north side.  I have the blind set up so that the secondary trail is 20 yards away and the main trail is 17 yards away.   Had a doe walk down the secondary trail the first day I hunted this spot but had the blind set up in a different location and I didn't see the doe until it was 10 feet from my blind and by that time its mighty hard to draw a bow without spooking a deer thats close enough to know what I had for breakfast. 
    • Same with when Trump says is going to build a wall, just fodder for the LIVs.    
    • Gary Johnson comments on the debate while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel show:   “It’s crazy the notion of deporting 11 million undocumented workers — in New Mexico, how’s that going to work where half the population is Hispanic?” said Mr. Johnson, The Hill reported. But “the biggest hoo-hah of the evening,” he continued, “the biggest whopper was when Hillary said, ‘Hey, I’m not going to add a penny to the deficit.’ Come on.” “Maybe she meant that literally,” Mr. Kimmel joked. “She’s not going to add a penny to the deficit.” Mr. Johnson laughed, adding, “$30 trillion, maybe, but not a penny.”
    • So when she says something like "no new taxes on anyone making less than $250K per year", it really doesn't mean a thing, it's just fodder for LIVs...
    • dang boober that looks good. a little katchup and horseradish..........Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well there's always today. 66 is the number to get to to achieve the long term average. Good luck.
