Just got up for hunting. Checked ice on my lake on the chain. Walked out 200 ft poppin holes every 10ft. Anywhere from 4 1/4 inches to 3 3/4 inches of decent ice. 1 to 2 inches of fluffy snow on top.

Fished the chain for Musky one last time for the year this past long-weekend, and had little to show for it except for a small window of action Saturday afternoon (2 to 2:30pm). The well-received break turned out to be a pretty 41" fish that wasn't where it was supposed to be. It was on a windblown sandy shore in about 10-12 ft of water close to a drop-off to about 25 ft. The next fish hit about 100 yards down the shore, but I didn't get to see it...I screwed up and didn't set the hook as it didn't "feel like a fish". As is often said, but seldom remembered (at least this time for me)..."Hooksets are FREE". Lesson learned. Both hit the same Bulldawg (brown with orange tail if that makes a difference), and within about 25 minutes of each other. My first fish on a Bulldawg. We threw a combination of gliders, twitch & jerk baits, & rubber. We were at our best spots at peak Solunar times, but fish don't seem to read the same charts. We mostly fished PG, and the temps dropped from about 41.5 on Friday to 38.5 on Sunday afternoon. Ice in some of the back quiet waters early and late in the day. Good luck to those still at it. See you next season. Don

Been looking at properties on the TL chain, found one on what the listing says is Deer Lake, but really its the lake west of Deer, through the channel, right off of Hwy. 45. I've seen it listed as Deer, Crystal, and Mud Lakes. The DNR website calls it Mud Lake. This is the DNR site for it: http://dnr.wi.gov/lakes/maps/DNR/1612500a.pdf Does anyone have any info on this lake, its real shallow, so I'm wondering how fishable it is in the summer, or does it get pretty choked out by weeds? Any info would be great. Thanks.

Fished the chain Saturday from noon-6:30. Two follows (one on a minnow bait and one on a Bulldawg). Another fish took a sucker at boatside, but did not hook-up. All fish were at weedline in 6-7 feet of water.

Still plenty of green weeds though they are mixed-in with dead ones.

Water temps 52 degrees at surface.

All lakes appear to have turned-over.

Looking to fish big lake (southern most lake on the chain) in 2 weeks. Any suggestions on quality locations/presentations for eyes and musky/pike? I've fished the lake in the past (with great success for early season walleye and pike especially in the shallows on the south end in and around the protruding big rocks) but never this late in the summer so any specific info would be greatly appreciated..

Try fatheads or crawlers. That's what has been doing the best for me.

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.
