Hi! Was out in the afternoon yesterday on Yellow with about a hundred other boats. My 8 yr old was with. We caught a few walleyes, most of them small. Did manage to get a couple about 18". Also several northerns, a few perch and a couple nice sunnies. Not superfast action, but decent start to the year.
How did others do?

Fished Mendota in the madison chain for walleyes and ended up getting a pretty mixed bag today. Water is very clear so trolled boards in 5-10 feet hoping to find fish warming themselves, unfortunately it was cloudy and cool. Found some water that was 49-51 degrees and that's where the fish were concentrated around bait fish schools. Saw some big hooks on depth finder but didn't land anything of any size. 4 walleyes 17-18", 4 smallies, 1 largemouth and 2 northerns. Nothing big at all. Fish seemed to prefer 3" baits in the perch color.
Fished a Bass tourney on Lake Monona yesterday and caught a few keepers on worms and spinner baits, one 3 pounder. Fish are spooky with the lack of cover (weeds that is) and if they saw us first they wouldn't bit. Not on beds yet but getting ready a lot of fish shallow.

Fished the Chippewa Flowage all weekend. No eyes, a few pike. Casted cranks, live bait rigs, jigs...nothin was happening. Everyone else I talked to said things were slow for them too.

Fished a Waukesha Co. lake for the musky opener and put 3 in the boat including a hefty 45". Not many fish moving, but the ones that were active, were eating. It sure is great to cast again!

    • Wow, I didn’t realize the lake was under that intense of pressure. I suppose I will try elsewhere if most of the trout have been taken out. Thanks for the advice! 
    • ...LOL, I did it again on Sunday as well. I used 21-40 ct shrimp and grilled up some chicken breast ahead of time that were added before the pan went on the grill.... pretty spot on!
    • Thanks for coming back with a review. They look like they should work well but I'm wondering if they allow slack in the line at the trip and let the fish off the hook?  I use dipsy's and a few other divers for deep trolling Walleye's in late summer.  Fun stuff when their out there. 🙂
    • All the little Trout ponds around the cities get hit like this on opener. More or less a "Put and take" fishery.  
    • Wow that is some high density fishing pressure!!!
    • This is a couple years old but I happened to stumble on it again today and I’m not really a big fan of the slide divers myself after giving them a shot. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but they seem more of a hassle than just the plain old, but effective, Dipsy diver     
    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
