well winnabgo was in great shape when we got there we walked to the stream started fishing and boom the sky opened up. dident stop raining untill 11 or so we started about 8:30we ended up with 12 fish caught in a little under an hour that we fished that stream. the water turned cloudy with the runnoff. (the only way i could have gotten weter was to fall in)
than we went to rush creek ( was the only stream that was not cloudy) ended up with 25 more fish between 2 of us the biggest being 18 inches.

all in all a good day

Troutman,

Thanks for the stream repo and of course nice fish!!!

Did you notice any change in the bite just before the run-off cloudied things?

ALso, was there a preference...difference between Winnebago and Rush?

Thanks!

the bite was on untill the water clarity went from clear to muddy the fish just stoped biting plus had no rain gear soo we went from comfotable to soaking wet in just a few mins. it only took about 30 min to 45 for the water to cloud up. hope this helps.

i always use the same 2 lures so i never notice a preferance. my friend had a white blue fox spinner and that seemed to catch fish. we were spinner fishing.

    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
