@Captain Jack

Any deep V is OK. When we say its Shallow we mean compared to the spring its about 2ft lower. Its perfectly navigable out there just buy a map and tilt up coming into shore.

Planning to fish Puckaway in late September for the first time in many moons --- about 30 years. I know that the lake is way low now, but historically, and all predictions welcome, will I be able to get my deep v boat in at any of the ramps? Also, aside from the resorts on the lake, in the event that I can't fish there, any other recommended places to stay within a 40 mile radius of there also appreciated. Thanks

When they cast the nets do they throw them through the middle of the basin? or where do they do the netting?

Again the rain was not much. It rained hard from 6:30am-7:20am, but rainfall was only about a half an inch. This will not change the lake level in the least. The DNR has started to drop the water in the Grand River Marsh so we could see some water change from that. I don't know why the DNR would want to drop the water as we are right around the start of waterfowl season with a Sept. 1 opener for early teal. Gonna be a bit more work and sweat to get into the marsh.

As for Muskies in the nets the guys said size wise 36-42". So very decent sized fish. Just not many but some in the lake.

Personally, I like the fact that the pike are the top predator in this lake. It helps greatly with the average size of the pike. Up north, we have more than enough lakes with big muskies and small pike. Good to see a lake like Puckaway where pike have no competition but themselves. Just my opinion.

Did they say if any of them (the musky) were decent in size?

As for muskies in Puckaway. Tiger muskies were stocked in the late 80's and had some success. I had the opportunity to catch two legals in the early 90's that I released back. the latest report of a muskie caught and photographed was by Justin Kohn on a guide trip he had three or four years ago. I believe the fish was released but not sure. In talking with the Carp Netters in the fall they have seen muskies in their nets every year but the numbers are very small to try and target just muskies on Puckaway. It is one of those surprise fish you might come across while fishing the lake.

As for rain and water levels. Little rain and no change in water levels. In fact the water I think has dropped again by a few inches. The strong winds have really churned up the lake. Visibility is only an inch and a half.

I know some years ago they introduced hybrids. A few years back I saw what I though was a muskie slam a surface lure, but never caught him. Some years ago my late brother caught a legal one in Puckaway, but that was in the 80's.

Has anyone actually ran into a Muskie on this lake? I see that they have been introduced, but haven't heard anything. I called the warden, but he didn't say anything about Muskie in the lake.

With Surfaces water temperatures what they are right now, IF the lake has the depth, the walleyes would be down about 25 feet. Northern go for colder water also. With Puckaway/ Fox River with no such depth, they will go to springs and cooler water outlets.

Where do those walleyes disappear to this time of the year in Puckaway? Night bite, laying on lake bottom, tuck in weeds, small window of feeding times, roaming the lake randomly? Low water& high temps? Crying

Interesting with the rain. Watched Radar on Saturday and the rain would get as close as Montello then either dissipate or skirt north or south. I had just short of an inch of rain in the gauge on the south shore from Friday morning, but being so dry the ground sucked up the water quickly. Talked to some folks in Montello on Friday and they were saying that we are at only 60% of normal precipitation for the year.

That being said the fishing is still good. Caught a little bit of everything over the weekend.
