Fishing Report 10-27-08

Halloween is near, and the toothy creatures are patrolling the lakes for their sucker treats, trick them with a quick strike rig.

As of Today, the lakes have not turned over, but it won't be far away. Bets bet is to call the shop for a day to day update before you head out.

Fishing continues to be good, John Luedtke brought in a 48 incher on Okauchee this past weekend on one of our giant suckers. Many of the guides are reporting consistent action, with the majority of fish being taken while floating suckers on quick strike rigs. Lots of fish are being caught on Pewaukee, but larger fish seem to be coming from Okauchee. Lac Labelle, Oconomowoc, Fox and Garvin have all given up a few fish as well. I haven't gotten any reports from anglers fishing Fowler Lake, but I wouldn't overlook it, especially on windy days where the larger lakes can be rough.

Walleye continue to bite on the Rock and Fox Rivers. Holes from below the Jefferson Dam to Blackhawk Island have been productive and a decent number of larger walleyes are being reported. Slow drifts with live bait, especially larger fatheads or small suckers have been the most productive. The stretch of the Fox from the mouth near the Pioneer Inn to the 44 Bridge has also been giving up a few walleyes, but most of my sources from that area are hunting right now, so my reports are about a week old as of this posting.

Good Luck, and continue to check in with the shop for changes to day to day conditions.
