Fished chain last night and walleyes are in my summer pattern off sand flats in front of weeds. We took them in 8 to 18 feet of water last night on two separate bars. Key seems to be clean sand/gravel in front of cabbage. Caught about 20 fish last night in last 2 hours of light. Only had crawlers but they did not care. 20" largest. Nice evening out with Dad. Good luck.

Was lucky enough to hook and boat two Muskie this past weekend - fishing the South end of the chain. Both were caught on a Bucher Tail - Firetiger.

On Friday evening around 8:30PM, fishing the outside of 7 ft weeds I caught a 32 incher.

Saturday morning,8:00AM Round Lake,I brought in my largest fish ever. Actually didn't hit as hard as the 32 from the night before, but once it saw the boat it took four or five long dives deep. My Dad was able to net it, got a few pics and released back into the water.

Picture attached. Measured at just over 42 inches, 20 lbs.

Fished the Three Lakes chain all last week on vacation. Had decent action for crappie working deep weed edges with artifical baits. Managed to catch over 150 and kept enough for a few meals. For past year this was real slow and we usually manage over 300 caught for the week. Lots of smaller fish. Quite a few small bass and walleyes too. Key was to keep moving spots until you located active fish. Muskie action was good with 2 fish boated 32 and a 36. Had 5 others on but for some reason could not keep them hooked up. Mostly low to mid thirty size fish with on about 40. great week...weather was cool and lots of wind.

Fished for Musky on the northern end of the chain this past weekend. Between my fishing partner and myself, we ended up with 3 small ones in the boat, and had a couple of nice Northern/LMB's. Most all the action came on small bucktails as the local newspapers suggested. Tried topwater/gliders/crankbaits/soft plastics...no action except the bucktails. We fished mostly in shallower water (less than 10 ft), and in or at the edges of weeds. Fished the evening past midnight working the bucktails/topwater, and any action seemed to drop off just after sunset. Surface water temps ranged from 70 to 72 degrees. Good Luck. Don

We fishing in Vilas and Oneida counties has remained consistent. We are getting mixed bags of walleyes, crappies, perch and pike mixed in on any given day. With cooler temps the fish are still very weed related and have not started to make any of their deep water transitions so far. Fish are being taken in 3-12 feet of water depending on the body of water and time of day. Days of clouds and wind the fish have definitely been more active and will go shallow the sunny calm days look for fish just on the deepest edges and they are less active. The bait of choice has still been minnows with leeches a close second on any given day. There seems to be a lot of minnows still hanging out in the shallow waters which are holding these fish. Tight lines to everybody in the coming weeks as fishing will only continue to improve.

During brisk North wind on July 1 and 2, were catching 15-18" walleye under our dock (4 ft water) on Big Lake. Have never experienced this in 12 years fishing there. Comments?

I was up north on the Three Lakes chain the week of June 30 through the 6th. Musky fishing was slow raised 2 fish and had one on that got off at the boat. The last day of my trip I was able to land a beautiful 44" fish.

The crappie fishing was out of this world! We caught nearly 200 fish all on home made baits. It seemed wherever we found weeds we would catch fish. The majority of the crappies were 7 to 8inches with several reaching the 10 and 11 inch mark!

Alright, I don't normally do this. I am up at three lakes musky fishing with my dad and brother and we haven't raised a fish since Saturday. We have 3 more days to fish and I'm looking for a little help. What's working? Weve been casting the shore lines where we've had success in years past with Bucktails and cranks with not even a follow. Weve now ventured out and are trying some new spots but still no fish. If anyone has any advice it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Mixed bag of weather this weekend. Went out in evenings after plenty of sun at the sand bar. Did very well on Walleye's with 5-15 fish each night. Biggest was 24". Bonus smallies up to 19 inches. Lots of bluegills off the dock with a bunch of nice ones. 1 2 hour shot for muskies but did not see them.

Fished the afternoon-evening Saturday on the north end of the chain for Musky. Water temps were about 74 degrees, and the weeds in 5ft areas were right below or at the surface. Worked smaller bucktails, weedles Silver Minnows & topwater over shallower areas, and switched to a glider over deeper water. One 17.5" SMB on the bucktail...otherwise no action, not even a follow. Beautiful, but fruitless. A brisk South wind made covering water easy as it never let up until the lightning/rain started about 9PM. Mosquitoes weren't as big a nuisance as the black flies...drink lots of fluids as they will try to dehydrate you one blood-sucking bite at a time. Bring spray. Good Luck. Don

Last day was a bust. Not much biting besides a couple of Northern. No crappies in the boat the entire week. May come back next year. Peyers resort was nice. Clean, furnished cabins and our own dock on the water. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay near three lakes. Good luck up there, back to Bago we go.

Cold front fishing yesterday. Rain, wind and cooler temps than normal made things tough. Managed a couple 12" Smallmouth bass, 6 perch, and a couple small walleyes before dark. Was dragging a leech in 5 ft of water with a second pole while casting before dark. Heard the drag start going so I went to reach for it and the drag stuck and it shot out of the boat and into Rangeline lake never to be seen again. Musky I assume but who knows. Glad it was a junker. Looks like a nice day today. No crappies so far, not sure where they are at possibly suspended over deep water basins now. Going to give it hard on our last full day.
