Walleye fishing is better then most people know right now in the New London area. A jig and leech worked in the transitions to deep water should catch fish during the day with shallower transitions and flooded shorelines being prime for the low light periods. Crank baits thrown to this cover and on the long undulating sand flats that I call “whoopdedos” will also produce fish. Catfish are biting as are some smallmouth bass. Bluegills had started to be active but the water temperature dropped to under 60 degrees. Look for them to become active quickly with the warm up. Water levels continue to be slightly above average for this time of year, which again, should provide for good fishing.
In Fremont the cold front really cooled off the fishing but anglers are still catching some white bass along with some walleye and catfish. The warm up should get things going again for sure.
Lake Poygan has been red hot on some days for walleye and white bass. Anglers set to troll are pulling shad raps and Flicker Shads behind Off Shore boards with good success. Others are just drifting and casting for their limits of fish. There have been a few dandy northern pike caught also as well as some perch and crappie.
