Heading up this weekend to fish and could use a little help. Looking to get on a walleye bite and heard it could be a good night bite and I'm willing to try. Not necessarily asking for an exact spot, but looking for what depth to Target the walleye along with structure types. Also wondering what bait to buy or a hot color. Seems to be a clear lake. I assume bass and panfish should be up shallow. Pm if possible and thanks in advance for any info.

I am headed to the campground this summer for the first time ever. I have never fished here or been to this lake. Any tips on what would be biting in early-mid June? Wouldn't care what species, just looking for fun fishing action. Thanks for any information.

What is the ice thickness on Big Muskellunge? Are they driving trucks out yet there or on similar size lakes in the area? Thanks.

Good clear 7" to the end of the landing bay and out to the main lake basin at 24-28 FOW. I caught several 6-8" perch and 15" walleye on jigging rapala.

Others using tip ups had lots of action on small northerns, medium perch, and walleyes.

Anywhere from 22'-28' producing fish - especially in/near sand grass.

One group of fishermen on snowmobiles went all the way out to center of the lake.

From talking to others, perch bite best early in day and walleye bite pretty good all day.

Probably Sculpin - which are native to many lakes in Wisconsin. They do look like a Goby.

Anybody been out lately? Curious on ice thickness, I haven't made my way here yet but am thinking about it. Don't want any spots, just an ice report.

We had seven inches last Saturday afternoon, fishing was slow with the front moving through. Would guess there is now around 10-12", error on the side of caution.
