According to my daughter's cell phone, the coordinates are 45.834501, -89.092072, not exactly middle of the lake as I implied in the previous post.

We found plenty of crappie, blue gills, perch, and even an occasional rock bass. No game fish. the biggest was a 13.25 crappie, the smallest was a 1.5 perch. We covered a lot of water, hitting range line, PGL, round, island, little fork, big fork and four mile lakes. The crappie preferred chunks of night crawlers (some what of a surprise for me.) otherwise, tiny fatheads and red worms produced well. we were very shallow, often less that one foot. be very careful, and stealthy when fishing this shallow, and release everything, as we did.

On a completely different note, we discovered a very shallow reef crossing big fork lake. It does not appear on any navigation or contour maps. By shallow I'm  saying about 3 ft! in the middle of the lake. If the weather cooperates, maybe I'll make a run out there again and get coordinates.

Also, my sonar was not malfunctioning, I asked my partner to check the water's depth using a fishing rod, and it hit bottom.

Hey all, wondering if I could get some advice, we are looking at maybe a June or Late August/Early Sept. trip up near Three Lakes, possibly staying at Rustlewood Resort (unless we hear something negative about them).

What are the best lakes to fish on in this chain? Best species per lake in the time frames listed?

Just looking to get a feel for it, we used to go up to Pickeral, Lily, Riley, Twin Lakes, just looking to try someplace new now.

If you want to send me a PM it would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Ben

So I usually get to spend 1 week up here every August but this year looks like when I used to spend many weeks up here like when I was a young kid. I am lucky to have a place to stay on planting ground were I learned to fish some 20 some years ago. Basically I am heading up for the whole week of Easter and with it being so early this year my question is do I ice fish or get out the small fishing boat for pan fish?? I have no idea what stage the lakes are in up there so any advice whether pm or on the board what would you do with a week up here during the end of March??? I normally would be on the Wisconsin river in nekoosa fishing trophy eyes so part of me is thinking about the Wisconsin river near eagle river?? Like I said it has been over 20 years since I spent any time up there in late March so any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Just looking to wet a line and release some city life stress! Thanks and take a kid fishing!!

Fished for Musky on PG for a few hours Sunday & Monday. Only action happened on a Bulldawg at 4:40pm Sunday...Mid-30's fish that never made it to the boat before it shook off. Water temps were about 45. Worked the sharper dropoffs around shore with rubber & rubber hybrids, and the fish mentioned came from shallow water (~4-5ft). Done for the year. Good Luck. Don

Fished the northern part of the chain and a couple of local off-the-chain lakes for Musky this last weekend, and ended up with two smaller (32 & 34") pretty fish. No marks, and beautifully colored. One on topwater on the first corner of a F8, and the other on a bucktail right around sunset Friday evening. Water temps were between 73 & 75 degrees depending on where you were. Don.

I caught this beautiful Musky a few weeks ago and was wondering if anyone can tell me how rare an albino musky is?

Fished Thur and Fri. Thur was OK only able to find active fish on one lake in particular. Caught 20 walleye or so all the same size....tiny. 10-11" couldn't find any bigger. All caught on minnows on drops that leveled off at 14'. All fish were at the bottom of the drop. Also found some sm bass all bass relates to rock except one on a weed edge. Fishing not so great today but fish fry at lumpys was good. Will try the morning then back home have tickets to packer family night.

Fished the chain this past weekend for musky. Started Friday evening and fished 5PM to 8:30 PM. Saw 7 fish with two boated and two lost. Saturday put in a long 13 hour day on the water. Saw a total 5 fish and boated two. Sunday fished a few hours in the morning between the storms with nothing. All fish were on weed line breaks with deeper water. Bucktails and crank baits produced. Fish caught were nothing special... two fish in the low 30's and two in the upper twenties. Other fish seen or lost were nothing special either.

My week long vacation turned into a short weekend fishing trip. Only caught six crappies and one walleye from the boat in A day and a half of fishing. Not sure why fishing was tough but I tried everything I know to do up there in the great Northwoods. Better luck next year water temp 69°! Tight lines and take a kid fishing

Hi. I'm not sure if this is okay or not, please forgive me if not, but my whole family is renting a cottage on Big Fork Lake and we really want to catch some fish, preferably walleye but perch or bluegill would be fine too . Any suggestions as to where to fish or anywhere near here that we should travel to in order to catch fish? Thank you!

Bass are harder to come by on the chain but they are there. My best luck for bass has been on fourmile there is a rock point that has proven and shallower water with wood that has also been good. One of my buddies had one on out there must have been mid 20's but got off. Also if it were me i would check out the channels and mouths between lakes.I will be headed up to the chain Thur Fri Sat and will report as I can.

Been slow last 2 weeks. Finding small eyes, can't seem to get over 12 inches. Minnows with a slow presentation working structure has been the only thing that works. Their hitting extremely light.

Heading out tonite. Going to switch to leeches.
