Thanks for the info. I'll have to find similar structure. and give it a try. I know my dad has had luck this year in the Jump River. The deeper holes at the turns are still holding some fish. Nothing huge but he has still found some walleyes there as well as a lot of logs.

Fished this last weekend and overall the bite was slow, but the weather was very unstable and constantly changing (seems to be the case every time I get to fish this summer)

We managed a few walleye with some pike and bass as incidentals. I tried several methods but the only one that produced any numbers was trolling with half a crawler on a harness pulled behind a bottom bouncer (1/2 or 3/4 oz). The edges of rock piles and other submerged structure were the best producers with most fish biting in about 6-9 FOW. Most bites came on either red or chartreuse blades, but we tried everything. We did some jigging and slip bobbers in the spots I usually fish mid summer, but that produced only a few bites. If weather conditions ever stabilize for more than a day the bite should pick up.

We mostly catch them by accident. I did hear of a group that just parks in the main channel with cat fishing set ups and they do pretty well.

Only got to fish a little Friday evening. Not much to report, the weather was very unstable and the fishing was spotty except right at dusk. Got a mixed bag ranging from perch to pike. Most fish caught on a small flicker shad or gulp minnow on a spinner. A few pan fish on worms.

Fished a little this past weekend. Got a few walleye and bass, but overall the fishing was slow for me. Gills are starting to go shallow. The walleye we did get were on cranks fished in about 7-10 FOW using a steady retrieve. Mosquitos were incredible!!

Fished Saturday evening and Sunday, with some success. Targeted crappie, but caught mostly walleye. Walleye bit on slip bobbers set for crappie with a small spoon tipped with a fathead. Orange seemed to be an important color. Most of the fish that we caught were between 16 and 17.5 inches, or less than 12", so nearly all are back in the lake. Got two in the 24" range that are swimming now as well.

We did get a few nice crappie as well, but not as good of a bite as last weekend. Several northern and a few cats were mixed in. Overall fishing was slower than it had been, but pretty good. The warm weather expected this week will push temps up to where gills and bass are looking for beds.

Hot baits were 2.5" white/chartreuse gulp minnows, small jigging spoons with a fathead, and black/Chartreuse flicker shad. Live bait was the best. Walleye were more attracted to minnows than night crawlers. Warmer weather might change that soon.

Was up for the long weekend. Did not fish as much as was hoping. But still enjoyed ourselves. Saturday morning my dad and I found a bunch of boats stacked on the north west side of the lake they where all doing well with crappies. We ended up with two of them.

Saturday afternoon a few of us hit a shallow bay and found some smaller northerns. Saturday night tried a spot we fish in the evening a lot, but no luck.

Sunday night my wife got a nice 19 inch walleye along the channel on a jig and night crawler, and we found a few perch.

Monday we took a ride up the jump a ways. My dad got a few small walleyes all under 14 inches. We watched some guys in a boat catch a nice 45+ musky.

Hope other's had better luck.

Hey all. I just moved up to the area from Madison. My wife recently took a job up this way and I will be going back to UWEC this fall after a long hiatus to get her through school. I therefore have a pretty open summer. I will mostly be musky fishing this summer and don't know too many other fellow musky anglers up this way. I wanted to offer a place in my boat to anyone else who is looking for someone to do some serious musky fishing. I have a new Alumacraft and plenty of musky equipment to share if your new to the sport. Hoping to find someone to fish with that is as dedicated as I am and if you have have experience fishing these lakes that'd be a great bonus! I have dedicated the last few years mostly to musky hunting and am excited to fish these local lakes(Holcombe, Wissota, Long) and rivers. If you have a boat and would like to fish out of your boat that is fine as well and I can always pitch in for gas...

If nothing else please feel free to stop by and say hello if you see me at a boat launch, I'll be driving a Silver forester with Nautilures logos all over it towing a 16.5 foot black alumacraft. Heading to Holcombe in the morning if anyone else is going to be out that way.

Sorry for the long post and tight lines. AA

Going to be heading up to the cabin Saturday hoping to do some fishing. Any reports of crappie or helpful tips would be appreciated. We are in the bay near musky island.

Will be fishing the Musky opener on Holcombe Flowage this year. I would appreciate any information regarding water temperatures, spawning activity and fish location. Thank you!
