Spent the weekend on the TFF targeting panfish and walleye. Stayed at Donner's Bay with Marvin and Connie and again had an oustanding time. First class individuals!
Found a couple walters toward evening Friday, then hit a couple more Saturday morning and night. Nothing to write home about. Crappies were tough to target as it seemed we couldn't pin them down in deeper water. Ended up finding 15-foot flats coming off shallows humps with structure for perch. Fish were actually about 2-3 feet off the bottom. Limited on nice 10-13 inchers both Saturday and Sunday. Truck travel is good on the flowage right now, not sure after this latest bout of snow. If you get off track and spin, you're done. Bring a shovel and you're fine.
Good Luck everyone.
You can't drive a truck off off fisherman's landing due to a snow drift at the landing. Some years local guys plow by the landing so you can get out. We are driving snowmobiles and wheelers off of Fisherman's but no trucks. This is very recent info as I drove on and off the landing last night about 9pm.
If you need to drive a truck out go off of Donner's Bay,it is a private landing, for use of his landing I always suggest stopping before or after and buying a beverage he also has food and a joke, the jokes aren't always good, Connie can often be seen rolling her eyes.
Good luck fishing
Im from the Green Bay area and will be driving up this weekend. Will we be able to drive out on the flowage off of Fishermans landing? I havent fished here before and dont know much about it. If so, are there any places we should avoid driving to? Any good areas to fish? I dont need your hotspots, just general tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Fished off of fishermans all day Friday. Had a few flags and caught 1 12" perch, 1 14" walleye, and 1 25" northern. Was a good day even though a bit on the slow side. We lost a bucket of round tip ups that had some hand warmers and face masks in it too. If anyone found a light red almost pink looking bucket with those items in it I really would appreciate getting them back :)
