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.

Spring fishing on the Wolf River, Wisconsin

In the spring time all the walleyes swim up the Wolf River to spawn. Also the White Bass go up a little later in the spring. They swim up the mouth of the Fox River in Oshkosh all the way through two lakes and then enter the Wolf River. I remember going to fish on the Wolf River with my dad, it was a lot of fun catching the fish.  Here is a picture of a Walleye and White Bass below.

You can also see the fish going up and down by looking at the cameras on the Wolf River at Wolf River Cam when the cameras come online after ice out. There are several articles on fishing on the Wolf River in spring. Enjoy the articles and YouTube videos listed below.

If you have been fishing this spring let us know by leaving a comment.

The 2020 Annual Sturgeon Spearing season is almost here. The season officially begins Saturday February 8 at 7 am.  Here is a link to the DNR Site with latest information and daily harvest totals.  The season lasts until February 23 or until harvest caps are reached. It has been 6 years since harvest caps were reached shortening the 16-day season.

The DNR stated the current sturgeon population on Lake Winnebago is robust with an estimated 24,000 adult males and 18,500 adult females for an estimated total of 42,500 adult sturgeon.

You can follow the action of fish shanties out on Lake Winnebago with the use of the three live streaming cameras on our website. The cameras have a DVR so you can look back at the day’s activities.

Ice conditions are less than ideal due to the warmer weather this year.  There was open water on Lake Winnebago until early January due to strong winds and shifting ice causing large shoves on East and some West shores.

Always know the ice conditions if you plan on going out.  Check with local fishing clubs and bait shops.  Cars and trucks are not recommended.  Knowledge is key to being safe on the ice…So Be Safe!

The Neenah / Menasha Fire & Rescue had their rescue boat out past David Point (SE of Rec Park in Neenah) and only found 4 inches of ice out beyond the crack.

Be safe out on the ice.
