Since keeper size walleyes are tough to get I was wondering about the Perch.In the past we would catch some nice size ones but I would find Light colored worms or grubs in the meat.I was wondering if anyone else has run into this.

here's some help about eating fish in Wisconsin

dnr.wi.gov/topic/fishing/consumption/

there's more specific information available, select a  county

dnr.wi.gov/FCSExternalAdvQry/FishAdvisorySrch.aspx

...click on a lake

... the Chip is not in any of the higher risk waters, so the normal guidelines apply

Shermo, there are no warnings about high mercury levels on the flowage. I'm sure, like any lake in Wisconsin, there are some trace elements found, but, not enough to pose a health risk. Unless posted by the DNR. Now, Windigo Lake outside of Hayward has vast amount of walleyes in it, but, you cant eat them due to the excessive amounts of Mercury in it.

Hey Everyone, 

Are there any issues with eating the fish from the flowage? i.e. high Mercury levels etc. Thanks!

I was trolling about 12-13 ft down.  Had some groups out this weekend and we had  some success. Cold mornings seemed to be the best. Four inch gulp work.

Soaked a sucker after the game today and caught this 39 at aabout  4pm today

Got out today and limited out on walleye. Started out with jig and sucker minnows and put one in the box of the bat. Few more shorts. Switched to gulp and caught a couple of smallies on deepwood. Caufht a couple of shorts and then trolled for the rest of the late morning ti 1pm. Got two keepers trolling and a few shorts. Fun day.

The first pic is Fred and son Landon from the 29th.

Crappie fishing remains decent for the most part. Finding Crappies in a bunch of different areas with some walleyes, perch and gills mixed in. Worked spots from Moores down to Granite Bay on the East side and spots on our way over to Blueberry flats on the west. 

The water temps were any where from 60 to 62 degrees. Water level were around 2 and half feet low and came up a bit since our rain on Friday eve thru Saturday afternoon.

I have this Saturday become available due to a cancellation, if someone would like to get out there.

Just an FYI to those that use the Chip...

This will be detrimental in the short term but should pay dividends in the long term.  Have a great winter and stay safe on the ice.
