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!

Follow up to my last report. Found more and larger eyes in 14 to 22 ft water. Look for inside bar corners. Minnows out did leeches 4 to 1. Still lots of small guys, but manages 5 in the 12 plus range. Lost 2 others that were over 14. Hitting extremely light

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.

If you are looking for LMB they are very hard to come by on the Chain. Smallmouths can be had but in general this isn't the best lake in the area for those either. If you are fishing the chain for Smallies I have had some luck in Laurel and Big Stone. Big Stone they seem to hang near the rocks (there is a good gravel bar on the the east side of the lake) and Laurel I have caught a few but mainly fishing for Crappies with minnows and got them by accident. Lots of Walleyes (smaller side) and some nice muskies in the Chain. Crappies are there too, target the weed edges in 8-12 ft of water generally but also this time of the year I am hoping the cribs produce. Headed up this weekend also but will mainly be targeting eyes and hopefully a few slabs.

I was up July 17 - 19. We had okay fishing conditions. All the fish were deep. Just look for structure or weeds. We fished early and late in the day. Keep moving until you find fish.
