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.

I'm coming up to three lakes tomarrow and was wonder what to use for walleye on these lakes. This is my first time up here we are staying on big stone and if you could point me where to fish that would also be greatly appreciated.

Fished about 3 hrs on north end of chain. Managed to boat a nice 38" musky on a tipwater. Fish was in weeds less than 6 ft of water.

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?
