Here it is by county for the more restrictive limit...1 per angler/3 per boat max...

Inland Waters - 1 hook, bait or lure per angler with a maximum of 3 hooks, baits or lures trolled per boat

All waters of the following counties: Florence, Iron, Lincoln, Oneida, Sheboygan, Vilas and Waupaca

I thought I misread the previous post, and wanted to make sure everyone was in the clear.

Thanks for the heads up on trolling for musky. I'm actually heading up to the cottage this weekend... Don't think i'll troll but will fish hard regardless.

link to DNR pages about trolling defined and regulations

dnr.wi.gov/topic/fishing/questions/troll.html

looks like they changed maximum limit from 2 to 3 lines


Motor trolling in Wisconsin

Motor trolling is legal on all inland waters with either:


  • 3 hooks, baits or lures/person with no maximum number of lines trolled per boat or
  • 1 hook, bait or lure/person with a maximum of 3 hooks, baits or lures trolled per boat

Heading up to the Flowage next week, hoping to target walleye and perch.  We fished up here last year in June with decent success, but this will be the first time up here in August.  Anyone willing to share some tips for late summer tactics?  I assume crawlers/leeches would be best. 

I know there are plenty of hazards on the Flowage - is the water typically lower this time of year?  Any areas we should avoid?  Thanks!

Pops 23, trolling is allowed with a maximum number of two poles per boat unless there is only one person in the boat then only one pole is allowed. 

On a separate note, two weeks ago a large black bear swam from the Big Island across the Turtle Flowage and got out on the mainland right past our cabin. It was broad daylight around 6pm.

Pops, 

The trolling reg's did change several years ago for the northwwods, making it legal, with some limitations. One line per person, with a max per boat. Here's the link.

My first post... Our family has a cottage on the north end of the TFF that we have been enjoying for 40 plus years and I have fished and hunted the TFF for many years... The past few years I have seen on a number of occasions boats clearly trolling for musky. Often right in front of our cottage and on a few occasions it sure looked like the boat was guide driven. So my question is this, have the rules for trolling the TFF changed in some way that I am not aware of? It was my understanding that it is not allowed.
