Went out Saturday from 630 to 430. Lake travel with truck was almost impossible. My lifted 4x4 truck got stuck 7 times. Luckily we had a shovel. As far as the fishing goes... Very slow bite. Finicky fish. Caught "sardine" sized perch in 46 fow. Nothing Worth mentioning.

@J 123

I know it's been more than a "few years". (Been going to / fishing Metonga on and off since the mid to late 60's)

I can remember routinely getting nice walleye and perch into the 80's, but by then the spawning habitat had changed. Just as important was what the changes in vegetation meant for fry survival too I'm sure.

Body's of water change (look at how Green Bay and Lk MI have changed over the years) Sometimes for the better, sometimes not. :-)

Just a note for WAYNARD, the rusty crabs showed up almost 40 years ago. Until then the lake was filled with cabbage patches all over in 12 to 15 ft. of water. They didn't just show up a few years ago.

This goes out to all that have a problem with Lake Metonga. I invite all of you to our Lake Association meeting at the Crandon High School at 9am. on 6/28/2014. Please come and voice your concerns.

Truth is, a "good spot" is a good spot because it offers the fish all the things they want - proximity to feed, cover, depths that they are comfortable with, light levels, O2 levels, etc. Take the biggest bass or perch or Walleye off a particular spot, and another will move in to take his place. You can overfish a body of water - THAT is possible. You can over-havest a particular year-class of fish. But, if a body of water has a decent fish population, those "good spots" will always remain so unless something about the LAKE changes to make that spot no longer attractive to fish. Anybody that does a lot of trout fishing on the same stream will tell you the same - there are holes, pockets, boulders, undercuts, etc. that are reliable fish producers. Pull a nice Brown or Rainbow out of a pocket he's been "king" of and within a day or two somebody else will take that spot over.

I used to get "territorial" about fishing spots until I learned more about their behavior. Now, my biggest grin comes from knowing I am right on top of the "sweet spot" and anybody more than 10 feet away in any direction is getting skunked. Big Smile

Just a thought... maybe everyone does not like having company where they are fishing. I personally go out of my way to find fish and when I do find the fish, it chaffs my butt when some guy sits on shore and watches with a binoculars, then fishcranes in on me.

I do not fault anyone for trying to keep their fishing spot secret, as if it gets out that they are getting fish, it won't be a good spot for long. Just a thought...

Some interesting comments about the Crandon area and Lake Metonga. I have been coming to both places for 22 years and they have become favorites, my second home. I have found the people in the area to be quite friendly and helpful. In other words good solid people. Lake Metonga is far from the dead sea but it is not the easiest lake to fish. I have had days where the quantity and quality have been outstanding. I have also had days where I came off the lake stumped. Finally, Crandon is a great little town. Lake Metonga is a wonderful resource, a beautiful body of water that needs to be taken care by all that are fortunate enough to be able to use it.
