I'm heading up to the Chip this Thursday through Sunday for the first time ever looking for some Musky action, anyone know of some good spot to start out in?

We were up for the last 4 days, Fished Wed thru Sat. It was a mixed bag to be sure. We weren't muskie fishing but did put a 42" in the boat. Walleye fishing was full of shorts. At one spot one of our party caught 22 fish in about 2 hours. Only one legal the rest shorts. We did manage 2 fish over 25 and enough fish in the slot for a fish fry and take a few home to the families. Still its always a great time on the Chip. Thanks to Denny and the gang at the Landing for their hospitality.

The musky bite has still been solid. Water Temps are right above 50. Fish have been biting both lures and suckers. Dawgs Jerk baits. Steep and deep structure near the channel has been best. The bite should really improve this coming week. Book a October or November trip! 7154108696
Sam, my duck hunting buddies said things been slow with minimal duck and geese around. They said weather has been too nice and being too warm. Seemed like there wasnt alot of local ducks around for whatever reason. Colder weather should bring down the divers though. Whenever that happens.
Musky bite has been awesome. Both on suckers and baits. We have 13 in the past 9 days up to 50 inches. Water is low 50s. Fish are pretty scattered overall but will congregate deeper in coming days, if it ever gets cold. Windows have been funky. Fish big spots where you know fish will be all day and wait for them to bite. I have some fall openings! Give me a call 7154108696

Was on the Chip Oct. 1st. - 8th. As far as Oct weather goes it was great and fish were willing to bite. We had an opportunity to fish with my great friend and Guide "Deano" of Deano's Guide service on Sunday the 2nd. Targeted mainly the crappie, bluegill, and walleye with great results. Crappie were staged close to wintering and were plentiful and ran into some cribs with some nice gills. Water temps were in the low 60's and fish from 12-15 average. Walleye started out smaller but as the week went on were able to put together some nicer keeper fish. Also a quick shout out to Lorie&Tony at R&R Bayview resort for a great weeks stay!

We fished last week Tuesday thru this past Monday. Windy for the first couple days, but then the last few days was gorgeous. Water temp dropped from 64 to 57-58 degrees as well. But we caught some big crappies with pink head / white body mini-mites tipped with minnows. Brush piles and cribs. Like others mentioned, we had to move around to catch fish. 2-6 per spot. Caught a few short walleyes as well. The fish were pretty close to the bottom in 16-20 FOW.
