Boom Lake / Wisconsin River (Rhinelander), Oneida County
Fished boom the last couple of weekends and picked up crappies in 15 feet of water. Drifting a minnow on a jig along the bottom. Yellow and orange jigs did better but all colors worked. Action seemed to drop off at dusk. Action was steady when we hit pods of fish.
Fished Boom today for crappies and the action was steady. Jigging a plastic next to a dead stick was lethal. Marked the fish and jigged it up and the fish would hit the minnow time after time. 13 inches of solid ice and atv or snowmobile travel was fine. Wish I was off of work this week because it would be a lot of fun on the lake. Great time to take out new fisherman and kids.
Fished Boom today for crappies and the fishing was very good to excellent. Minnows were the ticket but caught a few nice crappies on plastics. The hot window was about 11:30 to 2:30. Very slick out there so the right foot gear is a plus. Good luck.
