LVD is 3 Walleyes over 18"
What lakes have a 1 bag limit for walleyes in Vilas County? Please share.....to my knowledge there isn't. All lakes are 3 with varying size restrictions (15" min, one over 14" or 3 under 14", 18" min, some have slots 15" with zero bag between 20-24")....
Great post Ben! The lakes are getting fished by fisherman, along with electronics that are better than ever...& getting fished hard...there are so many lakes now that are 5-10 fish limits...1 walleye,,18inches...but it's also about the area...which drew me in & the great locals you get to know & have to earn their respect. Ben,,,maybe someday....Aqualand Ale House...I'll buy the "Musky Spit",,,,I'll be back up the 20th. for 10 days...Land o' ought be back up & runnin' by then
Thank you for the report and look forward to the next one as well... We are happy that you come north to enjoy our fine scenery and fishing as well!!! We have learned up here that is best to help others like you are doing, but to do it at the right times and with the right information, however you do as you please.
For others coming up to fish, here are the Allequash regs for the year upcoming and I don't know how it corresponds to last year:
"During May and June, 15 panfish may be kept, but only 5 of any one species. During the remainder of the season, 25 panfish may be kept."
I am sure that you are a law abiding fisherman. But our grumpiness stems from watching these small lakes get pounded by locals as well as tourists. After all we/and MN have the only safe ice sheets left in the Midwest to ice fish on. You can continue to give out fishing reports helping your fellow fisherman. We prefer to help those who are asking and without providing lake names, am happy to give info regarding safety issues, depths, weeds or woods, etc. to help anglers coming to our area be able to dial the fishing patterns in.
If someone chimes in on Allequash for example, I'd be happy to help with what info I currently know and sometimes historically know and many times will only answer on their private message. Will that change the pressure this lake gets, probably not... but it sucks watching lakes like Squirrel get pounded for 5 years in a row till there's nothing left, again that's locals and tourists... it just sucks...
Look forward to your report soon!!!

Well Muskie Ben, I would say both. Allequash can be a super lake and the way it recoups every year is amazing. But it gets pounded as I bet you already know as I don't think you are a stranger to the area. I don't even like seeing this lake thread come up as not everyone has the common sense to protect the resource. The new regulations are a good thing and I think they could even tighten them up some more. From what I understand it also gets damaged from over harvest during the summer.

Awesome day out on the ice!! Caught some nice gills. The Big Bulls are biting! Had good success with black/gold jig tipped with a spike. Tight lines.
