That shore lunch does look amazing.

And I agree on the northerns, every time we've fried them up on our TFF camping trip, they were delicious, and very tough (impossible?) to distinguish from the walleye.

Kurt Justice posted a report on the Vilas County board of a 50+" fish from the TFF. Anyone know any details?

Looking to add a floating handheld to my equipment, has anyone tried the Garmin LakeVu HD chip? I'm used to the LakeMaster/Humminbird combo, curious how this compares.

Thanks, HRG

although he won't admit it, Jeff is very talented at fileting Northerns as part of the shore lunch. Keep a few and eat them, you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference.

Jeff makes an amazing shore lunch! Great guy! If you haven't fished the turtle I highly recommend going out with Jeff. Cool

Kick in the hunger factor of fresh air and it has to be killer... I was just thinking how good it looked as I choked down my overcooked frozen pizza, reading about other people fishing.

Not many people out there to post a report for, I think we saw 3 or 4 boats yesterday and 2 or 3 on a not too bad of a Sunday, that was fishing on the big water side with a lot of the flowage to view. (The packers or fall walleye fishing, are ya kidding me! turn your radios on!) For numbers, fall is the best time of the year to fish although we had some exceptional days in May.

I haven't been posting numbers but to give people an idea of the fall fishing I'll give a quick recap of the last few days.

Friday with a strong north wind we went east to find some quieter water for jigging. The fish weren't numerous we did get a few nicer fish, an 18" and a couple 16"s a lot of small fish, took awhile to get our 12th fish for a limit.

Saturday group of 8 counting me ( two boats) they had a contest with a number of categories including most fish per boat, the two boats had a total of 131 walleyes. I won't say whose boat won but I over heard grumbling that I was a ringer, actually Todd using one of my high end rods had the most with 29. We kept only enough fish to feed the 7 guys and released the rest, our biggest fish was 18" (released).

I've made a lot of friends through guiding, Sunday fished with father and son Mark and Ryne, third person, Marks fishing partner Jeff had family commitments. The three of us caught 64 walleyes, no big fish but most of our limit were 15" fish we released a lot of 10-13" walleyes.

Yesterday we started the morning catching fish that were on the bubble of wether or not to put in the live well. With a shore lunch planned ,I joked to Peter and Jerry that those were 11:30 fish, at 12:30 with a perch and one walleye in the live well the now infrequent 11:30 fish were looking pretty darn good! We ate at 1:30. We ended with 49 walleyes, all small. The 15" fish on Sunday came from a fall area I hadn't fished yet, we tried them before lunch but the area held all small fish our biggest fish yesterday was 13-1/2".

The perimeter of the original lake basins in 20-30' and the river channels in 15-24' hold a lot of fish, most are 10-15" with an occasional 18-22" fish, the lake basins also hold some nice crappies.

Even in the fall the walleyes can go into a negative mood but with less frequency. The fall bite should stay good through ice up. My last trip, last season was nov. 5th, my one customer and I in 5-1/2 hours caught between 50-60 walleyes.

I've invested in some nice musky tackle if anyone is interested in a trip. I honestly haven't spent much time fishing for them but I do know where they live. Would be willing to do all musky or would divide the day with walleyes if desired.

The fall walleye bite remains good, most days a lot of small fish, keeping nice eating size and releasing an occasional big fish.

Sunday we had quite a thrill with two boats and a group of 7. Evan in my boat, fishing on his 11 th birthday. We were on a good fall walleye spot that surprisingly wasn't producing many fish. Often when this happens there is a reason. Evan found the reason, vertical jigging with an 1/8 oz. jig and fathead, his pole bent over. I helped direct the rod to try to keep the fish out of the motor but it was all him fighting the fish. The first time the fish came up I was lucky to have the walleye net in the right place and got the fish head first in the net. He caught the fish on a 7' med. lite St. Croix rod with 6lb. mono. We took some nice pictures and released the heavy 43" fish it had some beautiful markings.

In the fall 25mph winds like yesterday aren't your friend when jigging. Taking a pounding catching some small fish I contemplated what to do next. We had a shore lunch planned and only one fish in the live well. I decided to chance a long ride in the big waves to fish some quiet water. It paid off for Bob, Fred and I, we found some nice fish and some pleasant fishing conditions.

Some good musky fishing coming if anyone is interested.
