Fished the northern lakes caught one 30" and had a 40 plus follow. Then it got hot and boat traffic with jet skis then skiers were to many on every lake so we hung it up. We are going to try a different system tomorrow. Thanks everyone for the help and info. Very much appreciated.

Fished the chain last weekend for mainly musky but caught plenty of crappie and walleye as well. I've camped here a few times and have only caught 30"-40" ski - do they get bigger in this lake or no? (not complaining about actually catching some..I've fished Caldron Falls as well, I know that pain lol)
Anyways, I've had most of my luck in the deeper lakes(PG, Med, Big Stone) with some luck on Laurel. I usually throw bucktails and top waters but I've recently started using bull dawgs too. The only thing that worked for us last week was a smaller double cowgirl (double 9's or 8's I think) and we tried everything.
I've fish the chain a number of times. I've caught Musky on Medicine, Big Fork and Deer lakes. Medicine has a good weed line along the SE end of the lake, Deer lake is small enough that you can catch them just as you enter the lake from Big Stone and the two narrow spots before you enter Dog lake. Big Fork has a great weed line along the Southwest shoreline. Post after you come back and let me know how you did.
Looking for a lake to chase some Musky. I have a cabin a hour SE of Three Lakes and my two sons and I are going up for a long four day weekend. Down by our place the only real musky lake is Caldron Falls which sucks. So we are going to take a road trip on Friday and Three Lakes is an hour away. Is it worth the trip and any suggestions as to where to start?
Thank for any help.

Had an OK long weekend. Caught walleyes and crappies on the weed lines. Anchored in 10 ft and cast toward weedlines. Fish the wind. 1 Muskie caught, half dozen follows. Pretty good for limited time targeting them.
As for a house on the chain? Choose the nice house and boat all over. I run from Long to Dog and fish everywhere in between.
I was wondering if you could help me out. I have a chance to purchase a cabin on three lakes chain. One is on Medicine Lake and the other is on Big Stone. My wife and I fish for walleye, musky, pike, and bass. If you had a choice which lake would you choose and why? Thanks
