My brother Greg was visiting from Arizona last week. I took him Muskie fishing on Thursday. Guided him to this beautiful 48.5" fish. Water was still a summery 70 degrees.

Well hello again. I see this thread is pretty dead. Well, I'm just gonna throw it out there that I've been talking with some of the locals because I want to come up for the Jambo. Word on the street is that there's lots of action out on the flat by Namekagon Island. I've never even fished the lake over by Lakewoods, always found everything over by Echo Point and that whole part of the lake. I'm hoping I can make it up there this Winter.

Well, we ended up tenting it through a buncha storms, but the fishing was great. Came home with our limit of pike which we caught top water (always a blast) and a nice handful of walleyes and panfish. Even won $250 on pull-tabs and had a pretty festive night at the Loon Saloon! Wish I coulda stayed all week, but we sure had a blast.

Can't go wrong working cabbage. If they seem reluctant to cooperate, try a jig with plastic, this often helps me. Loon Saloon still has great pizza and Pla-Mor has excellent hot wings and blue cheese dressing. I should have mentioned, the skeeters are as bad as I can ever remember, so plan accordingly. Good luck.

Hey there BPW,

Thanks for posting the info on water temps. Coming up this weekend - hear its supposed to be a bit stormy but ah well. Haven't had a chance to fish up there in a few years - used to hit it every June with my grandpa until he passed a few years ago. Any advice on finding the pike? I usually just toss spinnerbaits/buzzbaits in 6-8 fow with cabbage weeds. Is the Loon Saloon still open? They always had awesome pizza - will probably be whettin' the whistle there Saturday after the sun goes down!

Hoping to find some walleyes too - just LOVE that lake!

I'll post next week with our results!

Thanks, Nate

Fished this past Saturday with my brother. Hard to believe that two weeks ago the water temp was 49 as this time it was in the low 70's. We targeted northern and caught 25. I thought we would do better as conditions seemed good. Weeds are slowly picking up.

Fished on Saturday. Water was 49-52 degrees. Little new weed growth. Caught some 12-13 inch crappie and some northerns. All taken on artificials. Had a nice visit on the water with a Bayfield county deputy out checking boats. Love the wings at Pla-Mor.

Spoke with the good folks at the Pla-Mor at noon today. Lots of ice. I believe last year the ice went out on Wednesday following the opener. Looks like a similar scenario this year. Rats.
