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.

was cruising down a channel on the Chippewa Flowage about 5 mph and had an eagle swoop down just over my head from behind and grab a carp 10 yrds in front of my boat, boy talk about waking one up. They are such awesome birds.  Have noticed that when ever I go to a spot and have an eagle in a tree overlooking the spot chirping I usually get some musky action.
