Central Wisconsin's Big Green Lake has been Dennis Walker's
professional territory for more than 40 years.
For years the native fishing guide had a distinction few such professionals
can offer. He once caught a 47 inch, 34 1/2
pound lake trout, that held the state record for 14 years. That's
a notable enough achievement for an outdoor guide. It's even
more remarkable when you consider Walker caught the fish when he was just twelve years old.
We have an outstanding lake here. It's waters are deep and clear,
with not only a variety of structure, but also a variety of fish ranging
from lake trout to pan fish.

Current Fishing Report
Friday, October 04, 2013
BIG GREEN LAKE UPDATE; Are water is slowly cooling down 72*-73* deep water. Not as many weeds on surface but the celery type weeds will start to float to the surface that may be a problem for trolling. We are going into are fall mode as the trees are starting to change colors and the water is cooling. Can be a real good time for fishing. Not a lot of activity on the water on week days.
FISHING REPORT; LAKE TROUT season is now closed.
****WHITEBASS; Are now harder to fine. Have moved to the shallow water.and hard to fine. May be on the surface after the small minnows on quiet mornings.
****BASS SMALLMOUTH & LARGEMOUTH; The Smallmouth are over the rocks and along weedlines in deeper water. Nightcrawlers, small minnows or small crankbaits should all work for baits. The Largemouth are in the weeds and under docks close to shore. Plastics and spinners will work.
****NORTHERN;Are on a very good bite at this time. They are by the weedy dropoffs and in the weeds looking for bait fish. Fish with live chubs or suckers in 20 to 35 feet of water should produce some Northern by trolling or still fishing.
****WALLEYE; Most Walleye are coming by casting worms or nightcrawlers over the weeds in 15 to 25 feet of water. Then later in the day try trolling chankbaits or slip bobber fishing over the weeds. The best Walleye fishing is coming up. The good Walleye guys will fish these fish into Nov. Dec. and get some very Big Walleyes. Most are taken by fishing with planers boards or just casting grankbaits.
****PANFISH Bluegills; Bluegills are very good fishing at this time and should be that way for awhile. Look for the Bluegills in the weeds or beds on the edge of the weeds. Fish waters from 8 to 30 feet deep. Best bait is worms fished with a bobber. Also may want to try a small spinner with a piece of worm fished trolled or by casting into and over the weeds.
