MADISON CHAIN
Waubesa
Shallow bite - Extremely high water levels have caused fish to move in extremly close to shorelines. Shorelines containing rock bolders have been found have high concentrations of bluegills. While smaller baitfish are in closer than normal, many gamefish are not far behind. The 1/2 oz ECHOTAIL tipped of with two inch Kalin's grubs have been a good lure to cast and retrieve as a lip-less crankbait.   Both straight retrieves and rod pumping retrieves have produced fish to trigger. Casting a 3/8 oz White SwimDunkin swim jig over the weed tops has also been catching largemouth bass and northern pike. Be sure to use caution around the home owners peirs and docks. Many of them are under water and are not visable.

  LAKE MICHIGAN
The King Salmon are moving in to the harbors and are being caught up and down Wisconsin Eastern shores. Trolling lures with lots of vibration such as crank baits, blade baits and rattle baits have been producing fish. Electronics can be used to locate high concentrations of chinooks allowing for precise jigging presentations. 3/8 oz, 1/2 oz, 3/4 oz and 1 1/4 oz ECHOTAIL® blade bait jigs in bright colors such as firetiger,chartreuse and bright green are recomended. The ideal weight will very depending on depths and current.   Be sure to stay on the move to locate schools as they move around. Be sure to experment by tipping the ECHOTAIL® off with scented plastics. There are many good product on your local retail shelves. Remember, their is no wrong way to fish an ECHOTAIL® so get creative!

WAUBESA | UPPER MUD LAKE
Rob made his way to the railroad tressel using the new bike path on Tuesday afternoon. The bike path links Madison to McFarland running along side the railroad tracks between Waubesa and Upper Mud Lake. If you like to bike and fish, the bike path is the perfect stop for your next travels to Dane County Wisconsin. Great fishing oppertunities! Lake Wabesa was down about 8 inches since last Monday. The lake is still under a NO WAKE restriction. Bluegills are still biting close to shore around weeds. The best actoin has been unbeleavable a few hours before the sun goes down. This is a great time to take the kids shorefishing. It's still a good idea to keep kids wearing life jackets even when fishing from shore. Espessially now as the water levels are much higher than normal. Pike and bass are being caught on the inside weed edges as they are still ch asing the shallow panfish clinging tight to the shorelines. Rob has noticed quite a few boats hooking up with larger game fish on the inside weedline with many fish being lost. He's thinking that trying smaller lures for larger fish using a slower presentation my be the ticket to succesfully landing more fish.

 


MERCER WISCONSIN

ECHO LAKE | MERCER LAKE
Wind kept us off the lake until late afternoon. One bass on the ECHOTAIL®. When I got here Thursday afternoon I asked the hotel owner if there was any place from shore to fish. She told me two boat launches one on Mercer Lake and Echo Lake. I tried Mercer first it was pouring down rain, no luck so I went to Echo Lake boat launch. First cast with the 3/8 SwimDunkin™ white with a four inch chartreuse Kalin's® grub tail I had a strike. I was using 15 pound fluorocarbon so I let it have the bait and run for a second. As the line tightened I set the hook and fish on. It was heavy so I was thinking northern but it did not fight like a pike, it never hit the surface and it was shallow water. I brought it to the pier and got a look at it before it spit the hook. It looked like a trout. It was about 30 inches long, the belly was deep, from the back to the bottom of the belly it was about nine to ten inches. It started to lightning so I left. There are no trout in Echo Lake. I talked to a lady at the bait shop about this fish, she said did it look like that fish on the wall. I said it did but it had a much larger belly. It was a very large walleye. Crap I lost the biggest walleye I have ever had on, if I was wearing my head light I would of seen the eyes glowing. Echo Lake is iron stained so you cannot see colors. It was pouring rain. The lady at the bait shop told her husband who is a guide, he said it was a big walleye, they are in the weeds this time of year, they like chartreuse because of the stained water. He is going after walleye today I gave him a 3/8 and a 3/4, he was going to use the 3/4 in deeper weeds. I gave him two four inch chartreuse tails to use. He has six guides that guide out of his shop.

ROB WENDELS
HOBIE KAYAK FISHING REPORT

 

SOUTH EASTERN WISCONSIN
Right now is the prime kayak fishing time for king salmon on Lake Michigan. These fierce angry fish are coming into the harbors and River miles to spawn right in the range of kayaks. And kayaks are the perfect platform for catching these brutes. This is the perfect time for the novice salmon fishermen to get out and catch a trophy salmon. Bass tackle will work just fine casting and trolling a variety of baits. I prefer lures with a lot of vibration and noise to really aggravate the fish into biting. Blade baits and crankbaits are good choices this time of the year. Lately, the color choice of the fish has been switching back and forth between bright firetiger patterns and pearl or Wonder Bread patterns especially glow in the dark. The average fish right now is between 15 and 25 lb and they will take your kayak for a sleigh ride. The great part about this time of the year is the fish are inside the break walls.

"OUR LURES CATCH FISH."

- JUSTIN BLANCHAR -


TOMORROWS CATCH (Southern Wisconsin)

After seven years of developing and field testing, our team has established seasonal patterns that have been proven with consistency.   "TOMORROWS CATCH" is to help our customers place odds in their favor to simply catch more fish.
(While many patterns are predictable, weather and water temperture along with many other varibles can influence our patterns in the Midwest.)

    LATE SUMMER-EARLY FALL PANFISH
From Northern to Southern Wisconsin, snapping 1/10 oz to 3/8 oz ECHOTAIL® blade baits over midlake structure has been a proven strategy to picking off big aggresive bluegills. You might be suprised at the size of their appitites so don't be affraid to go big.  

Early Fall Bass - Bass will continue to be hanging our around shallow weeds. Casting the SwimDunkin™ swim jig above the weeds is a great option to suck the fish out of cover. Swim jigs are lures most of the fall. Tipping the jigs off with paddle tails and shad baits such as the Sizmic Shad offers a good vibration allowing the bass to feel the bait coming from a distance.

BANG FOR YOUR BUCK TIP:

Remember, the SwimDunkin™ is still a blade bait underneath. When the water cools, blade baits work great for bass. If you're fisHing southern waters that remain open for winter months, blade baits are ideal for jigging up deeper bass.  
 


Early Fall Musky-  Hot weather has continued to keep muskies shallow chasing panfish close to shore. Casting the 1 1/2 ECHOTAIL® as a lipless crankbait has works really good in the early fall before the lake turns over. This size works good for water depths 5-6 feet of water. Don't be afraid to use smaller options and remember to "match-the-hatch". The ECHOTAIL® profiles as baitfish offering anglers the ability to scale up and down. Also, be on the look out for the new release of the ECHOTAIL® FUNNYBONE. More information will be available about the FUNNYBONE™ in the next blog.
