If you want to catch Walleyes out there you are going to need a GPS with map chip to find and fish the structure. If you don't have one, get the Navionics App for a smart phone - it's only $10 and will help you out greatly. Good electronics really help - I won't fish a spot, unless I mark fish.

Good Luck!

Does anyone fish the bar on the northwest side of the island? I can never find it. How about the island? Bass yes, but walleyes no.

How about the bar just off the channel between Little Crawling Stone and Big Crawling Stone? Walleyes? Results?

What other bars are there? Please, PM me if you would prefer.

Still wondering about perch and blue gill or even crappies? Lots of large rock bass & large/smallmouth. But no walleyes, perch, blue gills for me.

Again, answer here or in PM's. Thank you.

Try the Shoeline breaks and bars in 18 to 22 feet just outside of new weed growth. Use Chubs and Leeches on a 1/8oz jig, or a Lindy Rig or Slip-Bobber set within a foot of the bottom. Been doing the best with Rainbow or Red-Tail Chubs on Blue or Purple Jigs.

Cold nights have kept water temps down, weeds are slow in coming, but cabbage is getting going.

Musky Ben is correct. According to the WI DNR website, the lakes of the Lac Du Flambeau chain including Crawling Stone Lake, Fence Lake, Flambeau Lake, Little Crawling Stone Lake, Little Sand Lake, Long Interlaken Lake, Moss Lake, Placid Twin Lake, North Placid Twin Lakes, Pokegama Lake, Unnamed Lake or Pond T40N-R5E-S18, Whitefish and White Sand Lake are now all under the following regulations for Walleye and Sauger : Minimum length is 15", but Walleye, Sauger and their hybrids from 20" to 24" may not be kept, and only 1 fish over 24" is allowed. The daily bag limit is 3.

Thanks for the clarification! Good to know - coming up from Madison in 2 weeks for the annual weekly trip!! Now only if they would change the northern regs to help reboot that population.

Also, emailed the DNR and unfortunately trolling will not be legal (one line/angler) until the first of July on the chain.

Any update on water temps and weed growth? (the weeds have been so late the past 2 years).

It is posted otherwise at at least one of the launches I was at...

Also, according to this new item for Ceded Territory Regulations, I was not able to find the Flambeau Chain, so it has to fall under this rule:

In any Ceded Territory water NOT listed in this pamphlet, only walleye and sauger from 15” but less than 20” may be kept, except one fish may be over 24”.

This is from the 2015-16 fishing regulations:

- Lac du Flambeau Chain: Unless posted otherwise, only three walleye may be kept and they must be at least 18"
