On my way up for three days next week, to try my hand at smallie fishing. Need a little help on where to start looking, the slough, break wall, sand point. Staying in Ashland,first timer, only a 17.5ft boat so don't want to run to far. Thanks for any and all help.

Spin

The bass are spread out through the bay now, in summer patterns. The rock pile, break wall (SE and NW corners), Long Island point, weed flats, shallow areas (Kakagon and Sand Cut), Hot Pond, Ashland Area pilings, etc etc will all hold fish. Some areas are hit harder then others and there are fish in off the wall spots that you can find if you put in a little effort too.

For just going out to community areas, the rock pile, break wall areas, and long island point will have fish on them. Live bait rigging, swim jigs, spinner baits, and cranks will get em to bite.

This mornings report, It was a bit windy out there, But managed 3 walleyes 20-25" no keepers, 2 bass biggest was 17.5 1 Northern 39.75" that was a blast, net wasn't big enough. You have to love it when your best laid plans don't come together, those are always the times you remember. Going back out after lunch. Good luck.

The fishing just got better as the wind died down on Wed. and Thurs. Walleyes all day long 20-26"{no keepers}, trolling in 12' of water about 3/4 mile out from 2nd landing. I don't know if I just stumbled on a school or what but it was a good time. The bass turned on out on the rock pile in the evening and early morning. Nothing over 19". The northerns were just a nice bonus. Nice solid fish.

I'll be back up at the end of the month, should I change my tactics and locations?

I liked to book a trip with you Jim, bring my granddaughter up she is only 8, but she loves to fish. I'll get a hold of you. Thanks again for the help. Good luck

Cool deal on the fish.. Sounds like you did fantastic for the bay.. Walleyes definately have been going well this year in my boat too.. Some decent pike.. And landed my first legal smallie of the year, two days ago, and then another today just a quarter inch short of 22. Both big fish and released.

Shoot me an e-mail through my addy below.

Wow, talk about windy. It did calm down a little towards evening { not as many white caps }, but we still took a beating out there, few waves over the front of the boat. managed to get 3 more bass, biggest was 19. There was a lot of trailers in the lot, but we never seen any other boats out there. Must have been back in the slough. Didn't even try it on Sunday morning, although I'm sure it calm down during the day. That's just the way it has been working out for me this year. Still though can't wait to get back up there. Good luck.

Thanks Jim, What was the temp up there this morning? It was a bit chilly on Sunday morning. Seeing on Friday night it was so hot you could barely breath.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
