Anyone been back in Two Boys this year? I know last year with lower water the beavers had the channel plugged. We were up there last week but never got that far south. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

Walleye bite is picking up in the shallows. We fished larger swimbaits up shallow. Caught a handful of nice fish in depths ranging from 2-6 feet of water. Bigger fish were 22 22.5 24 25.5. The guys kept a couple of upper teens fish for dinner. Fun bite and it only gets better with warmer temps! Also got a bonus musky!

Walleye fishing has been all over the place. One day we get into them out deep and the next day up shallow. Out deep we have been fishing bog tops and deep wood. 15-22 feet. Leeches have been starting to get a few fish. Mixed bag of eater fish and short fish. Shallow bite has been picking up with the warmer temps and a little more wind. Cranks have been a little slow. More bites on jigs and plastics. Average size has been pretty solid up shallow. Weeds are filling in fast. Good Luck

What great weather to be out fishing on the Big Chip!
Friday I guided Roscoe and John out of Shady Nook Resort. We stuck to the East side and found some pretty nice Gill's and a handfull of Crappies up in the shallows.
Saturday I fished with Bill and his crew of kids on the West side. Boy did the kids have fun! Seeing fish and catching them as well! Still seeing plenty of Crappies up shallow yet but for the most part they are on their way out towards weeds and shallower brush.
Sunday Julie and I got out and checked some areas I havent fished in a couple of years and boy did it pay off! We both had a BLAST catching our limit of Crappies and releasing many more. Time for a fish fry!
For the most part, crappies are on their way out of the shallows in spots that normally go early, but, on other parts of the lake, they are in full swing!
Good Luck, be safe and we'll see you on the water!

Fishing was good this weekend- A few Crappie are still shallow-3 FOW or less- but the most fish are in 4-10 near deep weeds. on the Westside. Did well with small bobbers and minnows or mites set at 3 foot in 6-8 ft and small beetle spins- just drifting or going slow with the electric motor--also- My son (Tom Leahy) and his partner Dewey From Cadott won the Northern Tourney on the flowage with 80# (15) fish- there biggest was 36" 11.25 pounds-several 29-33 fish. Thats 2 years in a row for them. They were using slips and big Northern Suckers on The west side in deep weeds-44 teams this year-great fun tourney at Musky Tale Resort. Tom was bringing in a 26 inch northern it was t boned by a 50 inch plus musky that would not let go- I will see if I can post the video!! Also-one of the boats got a 28inch 8# walleye on a big sucker minnow in 8 FOW-mid day in cabage. Bigger Eyes are shallow-in the Northern tourney there were 4 walleye all over 20 inches or so caught by accident-- on huge sucker minnows -theres a pattern for you- try throwing crank stick baits.JIM
We spent some time chasing bass around the Flowage for a few hours yesterday afternoon. Smallmouth were going nuts in the shallows and first breaks. Fishing near channel areas yielded bigger bites. Fun time of year on the Chip!

Guided Mike out of Dun Rovin for Crappie and walleye on Wednesday. We found both on brush and cribs. At time was a light bite and we missed a few fish. Mike kept a limit of panfish and one 17 inch walleye. We fish west in the mornin and east in the afternoon. Check Moss fo crappie and that was not going on. Moved out to the cribs and found them.
Thursday was different no bite on crappie on the cribs. We started casting and within about five minutes Tim caught a small musky on a Husky Jerk. After that it was all northern. Fish humps and after with some light bites and nothing more than a few shorts. After lunch we checked out shallow crappie spots and fish were not hitting. They are there. Hit a couple of humps at the end and had a couple eyes caught.

What a cold weekend it was on the Chip this weekend. We couldnt put a big fish in the boat this year. Caught walleye and crappie on Fatheads and Walleye suckers. Are biggest fish was 21 inches. West side seemed to have the better action.
Guided Mike and Micheal yesterday and we hit the crappie. Started out slow but deep brush piles held a lot of fish. You had to be quick at times as we missed a few fish. Crappies will move in shallow this week with the warming trend.
Back out this morning and will be hitting the walleye and crappie today. Have a good day and stay safe.
I've been musky fishing for the last 5 years and love to fish for big pike and musky but unfortunately because of where I've had to move for work I haven't been able to get out more than a time or two a year. Still haven't been able to boat a musky besides a few smaller Tigers in the Twin Cities. I'll be coming up to the area from Chicago June 17th-22nd. We will be staying on Barker lake but I plan to spend a day or two on the flowage. If anyone is willing to share any tips for the flowage or even barker it would be greatly appreciated. Would love to finally land the first one.
