My go-to lure for Pike on the chain is a Johnson's Silver Minnow with a four inch grub trailer (I use Lunker City Hydrotails). As mentioned, cast in the weeds and wood and hang on tight. Was up for a week before the fourth and really nailed them. Caught a few bonus ski's using this pattern, as well. Had the best success on Wilson. Caught a few fish in as little as a foot of water, tight to shore.

Best of luck,

TT

Tim, I have always caught a ton of northern but most are snakes for the most part. Just work the weeds and wood. I've caught em on just about everything.

Looking for some tips. We are coming up in a week and will be staying on the Wilson Flowage. I have heard that there are a good amount of northerns in this lake. What is the best type of lure or artificial bate to use and are there any hot spots? I was just up for a couple of days and had little luck. I do not know what effect the cold front may of had. We did catch a bunch of very nice crappies though. Thanks for any help you can give me. Smile

We have maps at Ross's Sport Shop right across from the landing, lakes are all linked and you can get a boat from one lake to the next. I run my 19' Alumacraft anywhere on the Chain.

There are endless shore fishing opportunities in and around the Phillips area. not only on the chain but also on the river systems in the area. Bridges, boat landings, public docks, county parks and dams.

Thanks much Smile

You will find Wisconsin lake maps online at http://dnr.wi.gov/lakes/maps/. In the upper right choose Price County and then Duroy, Elk, Long and Wilson for the Phillips Lake Chain. Several local bait shops follow this thread and may respond to let you know what maps they have available. The Price County Tourism Department would be happy to send you a county map and visitor information upon request. Please visit www.pricecountywi.net and fill out the form to order a visitor guide and county map. http://www.pricecountywi.net

Phillips Area Fishing Report

Walleye fishing picked up for us last week, The walleye were biting very lightly and we had our best luck on Slip Bobbers with leeches. Lindy rigs with a floating jighead and a leech or crawler are also working well. We are also picking up some nice gills in the same areas that we are finding the Walleye in 10 to 15 feet of water.

Smallmouth Bass action is heating up, Fish for smallies around docks and fallen trees. I like using plastics or Berkley Gulp for the Smallmouth Bass but a Leech under a float will work well too if your more of a live bait person.

We still have a strong surface bait bite going for Musky, but we are also starting to catch them on #8 and #9 tandem Blades. Ghosttails and Esox Assault have made some custom colors for our area that are doing very well right now. Most of our action still has been weed related. Follow your moon charts for peak times and you should be able to have some great action.

Pictured is Quinton and Spencer Nies, Their grandpa Steve hired me to take them out for a half day of Walleye fishing, These fish weren't big but the smiles on their faces sure where. They did end up catching a couple of nice eater walleye to bring home with them.
