Salt creek and main pool were hot. Square bills and whopper plopper. 6 total fish this evening. Bass were bigger than usual, all about 2.5- 3 lbs. also got a nice Muskie. Special thanks to the gentleman that helped me net this fish. Water temp was probably safe for Muskie today and the important thing was that the fish never touched the ground. Really should bring a proper net if fishing for Muskie. I’ve learned the hard way in the past.

I believe it has to be at least 3 chambers , hard floor ,
you may or may not get stopped. I have see all kinds of violations lately. Even regular motors on boats. There is a list of rules right next to the launch. I have not seen one boat or Kayaker get questioned about any stickers or boat equipment. This year!! Timing everything.. I fish and walk my dog regularly out there .

Kayaks or boats are not allowed in the North pool. I personally talked to the DNR at Busse as I had questions about my sea eagle. Also inflatables are not allowed even with a factor board. It Sucks as I live 5 minutes from busse and would love to launch my sea eagle.
