White Bass are spawning and still biting very well all over the system. From Winneconne, to Fremont and New London reports of very good white bass action has been the norm. The number of white bass in the system is amazing right now due to a number of factors all coming together. When they start heading back and feeding, it could be legendary catches for some who hit the right place at the right time. There are some post spawn spots I know that should be unreal in the next few days. One of the most fun will happen in a week or so when the big schools go out on Lake Poygan. Just look for the seagulls and cast spinners from as far away as you can from the “bird activity”, if you know what I mean. Other places such as eddie currents that gather young of the year minnows and hatchlings will see white bass gathering to feed.
Walleye action has been slow due in part to the huge numbers of white bass in the system. I’ve still been hearing of some being caught on Lake Poygan and some by anglers throwing small crank baits to shoreline structure, creek and marsh inlets and the like.
Bass fishing is getting better and there are quite a few catfish around if you have the time or inkling to fish for them. Bluegill, crappie and perch should also start showing up in better numbers. Actually, reports from Winneconne had crappie fishing still being pretty good in the channels.
