Fishing on the Fox and Wolf River

Well it’s that time of the year when the walleyes start swimming up the rivers in order to get to their spawning grounds. They start in Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh and swim upstream through two bodies of water Lake Poygan and Lake Butte des Morts.

I watched the underwater cameras in Shiocton both 1 and 2 have fish going upriver. Nothing is showing up in New London on that camera except leaves and debris. Some of the walleyes are huge in the live streaming videos at Wolf River Cam. Enjoy watching the fish on the screen.

The new fishing regulations go into effect on April 1, 2020. The big one is the bag limit on walleyes goes from five daily to three per person per day.

Walleye Fishing in Spring

Walleye fishing on Lake Erie in spring this year is great fun when the weather is right. My three brothers have gone out there last year for a week and had the same experience. By watching the series of videos you can tell where they are on the lake. Enjoy the YouTube videos on Lake Erie.

Fishing regulations are changing for Wisconsin and only three walleyes a day are the limit. There are several changes that the DNR are making. Here is a list of the fishing changes from the DNR.

If you have a good fishing video please contact us.

In the Spring I have a special price on VC 17 bottom paint.  I try to be as competitive as I can.  It is very helpful if I would get a text or e-mail if you would like to order with me. It gives me an idea on what I should have on hand.  Map of marina with prices. (link) Phone Diane at 920-376-6040 or email me:

I just received a catalog from my supplier in the mail today on bottom paint. I noticed that there is:

  •    VC 17 m
  •    VC 17m Extra with Biolux
  •    VC  Offshore – hard, smooth facing finish

If ordering from me I would have to know which kind.  In the past, the ones that brought from me used VC 17m
