Do fishermen launch from the boat landing at Murrays Landing?  Is there much parking there?  Is a it a decent launch?


What's navigation like up and down from the launch?  I'd be in a mud boat, so I'm not really concerned, just curious.


I'm not interested in fishing...just want to come over and take a cruise to look around.

Thanks for the information. Is there a map available showing where the cribs are located??

agree with previous comment, in the maps legend on the upper left side 3 orange dots are stumps, rocks are a red asterisk.  Note, if you see clusters of 3 orange dots you can bet it is full of stumps, not just at the point of the 3 dots.  Also on the map, rocks are also marked with an R.  A little plug, stop by Donners Bay resort for bait, lunch or a brew and tell em some guy named Dean from Sparta sent you.  Marve and Connie are really great folks.

According to my FHS map, the rocks/hazard areas are marked as a red asterisk or star.  The three orange dots are areas of stumps.

Coming up on Monday. Have only fished the Flowage once, years ago and did OK in the stumps for smallies.

We'd like to find a mixed bag of fish on this trip. Looking at the "Fishing Hot Spots" map I see lots of clusters of 3 red dots. Are these cribs??There is no indication of what they are on the map.

I'm thinking if they are, they would be a good place to start??

Thanks

“NO FISH NO PAY, GUARANTEED”)    

Have been Guiding Vilas County the previous several days.

In the boat at 6AM, as normal. Some fast fish before the clouds and rain. We did continue to produce some Big Perch for this 1/2 day trip and a few more post spawn Gills. As requested for this day.

Perch on Crappie minnows and the Gills were on plastics, Pink and White was best (for us.) Perch on deeper wood, on the channels and Gills were in 4 to 8 ft.

Yes, these species are caught in different locations and at different depths with a variety of presentations. This is how we did it and how we will do it again tomorrow.

Call me any time for any info. My # is below.

My clients are enjoying the happiness of the north during this time of year, as many, many other fishermen are also doing. Everyone involved is supporting our communities and business’s.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

God Bless        John Andrew

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

Fished Mon. afternoon and all day Tues.  Water was 67 - 69.  Bass are very shallow, on the rocks but also holding on wood.  If a bass wasn't on the wood then a pike was.  Got about 15 bass total, a dozen pike - some of these were actually decent.  Biggest bass about 18".  Had to downsize to what would be about a J7 Rapala, perch pattern stickbait.  For the meat fish, I went to shallow weeds and stumps with crawler pieces or gulp, 2-3' deep.  Got crappie to 13", a 18" waldo, perch to 11", and a bazillion rock bass.  Only one gill, when I looked for them, I found pumpkinseeds which were just a bit too small.  It is quite cool, but nice - no bugs while sitting out by the fire.

This morning it was 39 degrees as we drove to springstead landing to fish for walleyes. Greg from Wis. Rapids was with me this morning. We fished 2 spots and caught all our fish in15 foot wood on a channel edge. Most came on leeches under slip bobbers with a few on crawlers and jigs..
