Packeroni,

I was Up North Thurs-Sunday and the fishing sucked. There is nothing that you could have done different. I think that last week's bad weather from Sun-Wed, the NE wind and lakes with bloom were all a factor that shut down the bite. We caught 5 small muskies (22-34 inches), 3 sm and had a few big blowups from smallies. Also caught a largemouth. My buddies 34 was on a sucker on Wildcat Lake. It was tough and we fished hard! Never give up!!

Good Luck.

Three of us targeted Musky for two days. Caught 11 fish total, 3 largemouth bass and 8 Northern. All caught on musky lures, actually the same lure, a black 9 inch suick. 10/1/2016 was cloudy most of the day, 10mph north wind, water temp 60 degrees. Was out from 8:30am until 5pm, spend half the time north bay and half the time south bay. On Sunday 10/2/16 was out from 9am until noon, not cloudy like on 10/1, sunny and north wind around 3mph. Threw a variety of musky lures ranging from suicks (black primarily), whopper plopper (yellow), variety of large musky mayhem double cowgirl bucktails (black skirt silver blades, black skirt orange blades), bulldawg, warlocks, and hell hounds. Both days we fished over weeds in those bays, in 4 to 15 feet of water. In the two days we did not have a single follow and not a single musky hit. The only action was the three bass and 8 northern all caught on the same 9 inch black suick. Talked to someone at the end of the day 10/1 and they were perch fishing and caught a 40 inch musky, were fishing for perch in 6 fow north bay north side of island and the musky nailed the perch they were reeling in and got caught just right in the corner of the mouth. And on Sunday talked to a guy who caught a 32 inch musky fishing over weeds in 14 fow for walleye (picture verified), he caught it on minnow and jig, he also caught two walleye that day. If anyone has any thoughts as to what we could have done differently, would love to hear it.

I am probably missing something but I don't see any special walleye regs in the new book online for Squirrel. Anyone know if they changed?

Can you access Squirrel Lake from Diamond Lake in a 18 foot fishing boat?

I'll be in the Minocqua area next week 7/25-8/1, just wondering how the panfish and Musky action has been this year?
