    Depending on the time of the year and weather conditions Gary fishes the Wisconsin River  early and late in the year and Lake Wisconsin during early summer and fall.  Walleyes and Sauger can be caught as early as February in the river system.  The Wisconsin river offers some of the greatest smallmouth fishing available from summer to fall.  The Madison Lakes provide steady action for most species year round. 

    To provide you with a lasting , memorable fishing expierience.
    To teach you and help you learn the proper techniques and methods needed for catching fish at all time during the year.
    To promote conservation and proper fishing etiquette.  I believe in Catch, Photo and release where ever possible to insure quality fishing for future generations.

    The Best is yet to Come 

         It’s time for school to start and all the activities that come with fall. After Labor Day, many of you put away your boat and fishing equipment and become football couch potato’s if you’re not hunters. Some of the year’s best fishing comes in the fall and right till ice up. I always experience some of the years best fishing in late October and into November. The fish know the days are getting shorter and the water is cooling off. All this puts fish in the eating mood because they realize that they better bulk up for the coming winter months. Sure, fish do eat in the winter, but their metabolism slows down and they become less active.
          As we get into fall, I switch back to many of the tactics and techniques that I use in the spring. First, I go back to fishing live bait usually minnows and crawlers as long as the water temperature is above 50 degrees. I go back to jigging and live bait rigging for most fish that I’m fishing for. Use minnows that are 3 to 5” long because the forage fish and the young of the year game fish have grown all summer and are now inches long and not the small fry that they were in the spring. As the water and weather cools, I slow down my presentations and give the fish more time with the bait.
          Walleyes and saugers are the fish I normally pursue this time of year and it’s necessary to understand a little about the fish’s migratory movements. Walleye’s and their close cousin, the sauger, start working their way up the Wisconsin River system ( and all other rivers ) to the first blockage, the dam at Prairie du Sac, and start settling into their winter holding spots. These fish will hold within a couple miles of the dam until they are ready to spawn in the spring. They look for deeper water with some structure and a steady supple of food. All of these ingredients are all present below most dams in the fall, winter, and early spring. The characteristics I’m describing hold true for most dams on large and medium size rivers in the Midwest.
           As the weather cools, fewer and fewer anglers are fishing. I’ve been out in late October and been the only boat on the water fishing. Work your bowmount trolling motor and vertical jig all around the dam’s tailrace. If the water is high try jigging close to shore and if the water is low work the deeper channel edges. Anchoring and casting jigs and minnows works too and sometimes is even better than moving. The fish move in and out and from deep to shallow, so try all these areas till you contact fish.
          Even if you are a hunter, find time to fish this fall and I bet you’ll find more time to fish.in the future.

    Tips for Early season Walleye Fishing

    I'll give you some places to call and double check on conditions before leaving home.  Things change rapidly.

    • Try to use a four wheel drive vehicle if possible.  This prevents any problems on boat ramps remember boat ramps freeze late in the day and at night.
    • Watch for ice flows.  Sometimes big chunks of ice just below the surface can ram you, so keep your Life jacket on
    • Don't anchor sideways if you have ice flowing around you
    Early season Techniques
    • Vertical Jigging (Use plastic and hair bucktails)
    • A plain hook with a bead (chartreuse or glow) and a slit shot
    • A split shot and floating jig head.  Vary Hook to splitshot distance from 6" to 2 feet
    • Three way rigs, use 3/4 to 1 ounce jig with minnow as the dropper line 6" to 12"  then use a floatingjig/minnow or floating crankbait on the other line.  This can be used as a dead rod in a rod holder or as you work up river on your bow mount
    • Early in the year tip all jigs and hooks with medium to smaller size chubs.  Hook under the lip and through a tail hook the minnow on the dead rod.
    • Saugers always seem to be in deeper water and in more current than walleyes
    • Night fishing and wading can be very productive.  Low light periods walleyes move shallow to feed.  Cast jigs and shad or twister tails and retrieve slowly.
    • Casting stickbaits with a tight wobble and split shot works well.
    • Try Manns Loud Mouth Jerk bait or Rapala floaters.  Shad colors seem to work best
