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.

Looking for information regarding camping on Big Musky. I typically take my boys camping over at Razorback. My wife came along and didn't like the fact that I had to drive her over to Firefly for a shower. I see that of the campgrounds in the area that have showers, Big Musky has the best fishing.

I see there are several campsites along the shore. Can you beach your boat at the campsite? Are you right on top of the other campers? How is launching a smaller 16 foot? If you have been to Razor, that launch is no picnic. Have to pretty much wade your boat out and only have a small pot hole to get the boat wet, so I'm used to shallow landings.

Any info would be Greatly appreciated. Just want have an idea on what I would be dealing with, since I have never been to this campground.
