Sad day for our group that goes out every year. Won't be the same without Elmer checking our "limits" each evening. If ice conditions were not so good, he would drive 10-30 miles and park on shore to keep an eye on us, worried we might fall in. Lent us open water poles so, we could keep fishing if the ice went out early and all we had was short ice-jig sticks. Always on hand to give us a ride if we had a breakdown etc. Always had some new jokes for us and the stories? hahahah can't repeat them on public site like this. Still in Wis. but, Brett, Sky, and I will raise a glass of hard stuff tomorrow at sunset as we face west while standing on the ice here. Crying

Feb 28th; Yesterday, I fished with some of my renters in the evening in the OREO shack, black on the ends and white in the middle. I caught three walleye and two others each caught three between them. All were in the upper teen's. We all caught some small perch. One caught a large northern and released it. No report from a crew on Mary's lake. Rob and family caught some small and medium perch, a couple of walleye and some northern. Today we lost a great friend and a life long resident of Lehr. Elmer Spirling died at the age of eighty six years old. He was healthy until he suddenly died at his home. Elmer made his rounds to my rental houses and announced him self as Lehr Game Warden! He told some very funny jokes and had a stiff drink. He helped me when I came here. I needed tools that I forgot and supplies when the stores were closed. He always found some one that had what I needed. We will all miss him. No significant new snow. Easy travel on the ice. Some blowing snow and drifts in a few places that I plow out. Good fishing and good luck. Don 608-697-6910

Feb 26th; Rob's crew caught a nice mess of walleye and perch on golden bay. Not limits but welcome just the same. Others caught similar catches as well. Our accesses and lake travel is very easy with 4x4 truck. I will help you for free to get on the fish. We have hard shacks for rent in good places. Come join our little group of fishermen from the area and from Lehr. We fish and enjoy each others company. Retire in Paradise, Lehr. You can afford to retire here! Good fishing and good luck.

Feb 25th; Fishing has slowed down. Golden Bay still has a walleye and northern bite. Some have caught perch worth keeping. Lake Victoria was tried and was slow. High pressure systems! Mary's lake is producing perch. Perch Lake has started to produce a few very nice perch. Good fishing and good luck. Don 608-697-6910

Feb 20th; Perch on Mary's Lake are still going. They have picky times but the next day you can find a way to limit most of the time. Walleyes and northern are good on golden bay. Red buck shots and minnow heads are still my favorite. Other baits work as well. On both lakes the spot does matter. If it's not working for you, it's time to look at the map and drill it, to kill it! I feel bad for all of the areas with deep snow and no end in sight for more of the white crap. Our crop fields are bare as a baby's butt, with little or no white crap at all! The lakes are also snow less for the most part. Sorry, not enough snow for snomobiles! Travel is easy with 4x4 trucks etc.. Our fish are always looking for the light at the end of the tunnel! The only thing better than stupid fish is big and stupid! Lehr is paradise! We have openings, call! Retire here and live the good life. Good fishing and good luck! Don 608-697-6910 c

Frankensteiner9er, If I had to survive on the fish I've caught this winter I'd starve to death. Not sure what's going on here. I like to fish other places to. Meet new people and see places. Interested in a summer outing? Lots of untried lakes but rumor has it North and South Dakota are the new in spot for jumbos. Dodgeman

Boxman1, I'm located a little north of wisconsin dells. I did some research and discovered that Don is from Portage WI. The group I'm coming with set this up and we are also staying with Don. GREAT! I fish Lake Michigan for perch in May (?). Salmon out of Kewaunee and Sheboygan in the summer. Eyes in Green Bay. Not sure if this is the place to communicate general info as I am relatively new to Lake-Links. Home waters are Castle Rock and Petenwell. This winter the lakes have been s-l-o-w! It might be the snow or cold. Both? Keep a tight line. Dodgeman

Dodge - Im from Wisconsin - near Milwaukee. Interested in Devils Lake but its too big to do on my own. I like the Lehr area as the lakes are smaller and more manageable. Plus I stay with Don Schnering who puts me on the fish and is very inexpensive. Its seems like the resorts around devils lake are kinda pricey

How many lakes are there in Wisconsin? Fishing must be pretty crummy out there or did all the lazer sticks fish em all dry?

I have been to Lehr three times in the past two years. Cafe has good food, people are friendly, country is beautiful and Don is a class act. Great place.

Fishing is fishing...not catching.

If you are semi capable and willing to do a little search and work, you will do fine. Do some research before you arrive. Talk to a few people about what lakes are producing the best fish. Once you pick a lake move around if you aren't getting quality fish. Talk to other fisherman. Don't be afraid to ask what is working and when. One year is was buckshot glow perch rattle spoons with tail hooked minnows at dusk and after dark for an hour, the next trip it was large rockers with spikes in the middle of the day and the next trip it was a morning and late afternoon bite on lip hooked minnows under a slip bobber. Be prepared.

Good luck and enjoy your trip. Cheers! Smile

Had another great trip out to the Lehr area. This is my fifth trip and my biggest problem is nobody will go with me to split gas! There are only 90 people in and around Lehr so while the locals are friendly there arent many of them! The game warden lives in Wishek so you will probably get checked but it isnt a problem. Its hard to describe how remote these lakes are. Some dont even have names!

Barefoot, thanks for the info and the link. Not being familiar with the area I wondered about all the lakes. I'm from Wisconsin and a small town and lots of people go to this area to fish. Hope the people are as friendly as I've heard. Keep a tight line barefoot and again, THANKS!
