Did well last week. All on minnows, they wouldn’t touch plastics. Gorgeous weather. The crappie population looks very healthy with a great average size. We were able to get picky and only kept a couple meals worth. The LM bass population, however, is another story. Probably caught 50 in 3 days with nothing larger than 12”. Annoying would be an understatement. With the water warming again after last Saturday, the slabs should be in full spawn mode.

Hi Van D, and Musky1011, thanks for your response.

Yes, I'll be up there this weekend.  I'll look for you Musky!  Nice boat--love the color.

 Welcome to the area Justin. I’ll be heading up Wednesday morning for a stretch of fishing. My folks are up there year round. I’m still learning the lakes myself, but I like what I’ve found and it’s a beautiful area.

Hi Buckatabon Community,

I have recently become a resident of Buckatabon Lakes.  Just wanted to introduce myself to my fellow anglers.  No need to point out any spots just yet, for it will take the fun out of it.  (Emphasis on "YET").  I will be up here most of the summer, so if you see a grey and black Tyee out there--that might be me!

Feel free to PM anytime.

Justin

 The folks drove down to the Fox Cities for the holiday. The live on Lower. Dad hasn’t been on the ice, but said Upper still has some open water. Lower has been locked up for a bit now. I’m sure the artic blast will change that and firm up what is already there. However, I urge everyone to err on the side of safety. I believe the sled trails are still closed on the lakes, yet. Hopefully, I’ll be up there sooner than later to give some reports. Tight lines all...

Are there areas to look out for?   

I've heard there's a spring by the landing.   Not sure if that's a fact or just what I got told to keep people out in the winter. 

 Merry Christmas
