Bald Eagle Reports??

4 posts in this topic

Usually get out to Baldy 8-10 times by now this time of year but haven't due to some work stuff. Anyone with any recent reports of the musky bite out there? I know the lake very well, just looking for reports of catches, not your secret spots.

Hey JIGGIN'

If you're familiar with the lake in general you have a leg up. Fish on BE and the metro in general have been spotty at best. Weather conditions like tonight have been a factor. If you're somewhat in the know, you'll do as well as the rest of us.

Fish are relating to the deeper weedlines, but under the right conditions will be on the spots you're likely familiar with. I'd say go and do your "milk run" of known areas and look to deeper weedlines secondary, especially those close to deeper water. If you're thinkin' of the edges I'm thinkin' you'll have a good chance. Edges nearby Cigar Island come to mind.....

Was out after the storm on Thursday and moved no fish. Water is startiung to get greened up pretty good. FYI - DNR has a sign saying the access will be closed on the 19th for a water ski show.

I fish it a lot and our boat has gotten a few fish this year - lost and missed our share as well. I haven't found them shallow yet. Cjac is right on - all the fish but one have been off the weedlines. That said, I got sick of fighting the wind yesterday and tried trolling for a while and didn't hardly mark any baitfish - maybe with the wind I should have been up in the jungle. Normally I love this lake for topwaters - this year jerbaits have been better producers.

    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!!

    •   How about the plan that has proven effective in Portugal that I've told you about several times now? Are you just going to keep ignoring it and continue to ask silly questions?
    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
    • Holy shamoley. Ott sacked em up big time!!
