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.

WAUBESA

  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!

Fishing report, Waubesa lake levels are down about 14 inches the last three weeks. Still no wake on the M adison C hain. Still plenty of current moving through the locks at Babcock Park B luegills have been hanging around the outside weedl i nes during the day. Still plenty of fish shallow allowing shore anglers for good fishing prior to sun down. Minnows were working for bass during daylight hours on the Yaharra River . I expect w alleye to be moving towards moving water in the evenings setting up for a good night bight casting smaller ECHOTAIL lipless blade baits and FUNNYBONE sblide baits.

ROB CASTS IN EARLY FALL FROM A PUBLIC PEIR IN DANE COUNTY


TOMORROWS CATCH  

  "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.)


                                                    OCTOBER | NOVEMBER

BASS:   3/8 OZ   SWIMDUNKIN swim jigs & swimbaits over weed beds.

WALLEYE: Original ECHOTAIL in sizes from 1/10 OZ | 3/16 | 1/4 OZ | 3/8 OZ | 1/2 OZ | 3/4 OZ | 1 1/4 OZ
                                   
                    ECHOTAIL PRO TIPS: AUTUMN WALLEYE


SNAP JIGGING:
     

Try various sized until the fish start smacking them. Walleye can be selective, especially during fall with unstable weather patterns. Small and lighter profiles can be very effective when walleye are behaving neutral. When walleye are more aggressive try using larger profiles such as the 1 1/4 oz   or 1 1/2   oz as the walleye start feeding more heavily before winter.

CASTING:
Walleye can be caught near areas with current. Many of these places can be targeted from shore with public access. Vibration is key making the ECHOTAIL the perfect lure of choice to cast. Try using a STRAIGHT RETREIVE   with lighter weights such as the 3/16 oz or the 3/8 oz . The blades that contain a round head generally retrieve straighter and requires minimal skill level to properly tune. Try a wide varity of plastics... Especially products containing scent . The middle hole is walleye a good spot to start.

 

Casting the blades away from the boat or shore   and hopping them along the bottom on the retreive. This technique is a common method among saltwater anglers and is widely used by Japanese anglers who enjoy jigging from shore. The technique has been labeled " SHORELINE SLOW JIGGING" . Vary your cadiece until the fish start responding. Allowing pauses in between rod pumps can trigger fish to feed. Be sure to keep your line tight for detecting bites. Using braided line with 3 to 6 feet of flourcarbon   leader is our personal preference. The braided line allows detection of fish inhaling the blade bait as they tend to pin the lure to the bottom. The longer fluorocarbon provides the stretch needed to prevent fish detecting the angler! The fluorocarbon is also stiffer then the braid and prevents tumbling of the lure on the cast. When the lure tumbles, it can have a tendency to get tangled around the braided line. Tumbling can occur more often during windy conditions. A small barrel swival may be necessary to prevent line twist in stronger currents. Use the swivel to connect the the braided line to the fluorocarbon.
