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.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
