High,


I believe his son John is now running the resort. I stayed there my first year up, while Jim was still there. Nice guy.

Wow, Jim Wittig is still there? I would have thought by now he would be living in Arizona

Highnoon,

I'lll second Ilesox, I've fished High and Fishtrap (connected to each other) for 17 years and hopped to about another dozen area lakes. Fishing has been consistent through the years. As I get older, it's getting harder to jump around. Not much need, as the years progress the more I learn and more successful trip we have right on the 2 lakes.  Some of my faves over the years of others include the Germains, little crooked, VanVliet, Escanaba. Depending on species you're targeting, each of the lakes has their own benefits. All have decent panfish or bass as a backup if musky and walleye are tough to catch.......I prefer spring over fall. Particularly at start of weed growth (early June).

Highnoon, have fished the BJ area the last 3 years, both summer and fall.  Fishing has been very good-all species, pannies to muskies. Have stayed at Wittigs Point Resort on Fishtrap. Nice, clean friendly place to stay. Pan fishing on Fishtrap is good. We typically lake hop for the walleyes and muskies. Spent MANY years fishing the St. Germain area. Good fishing there too but had a tough time with lodging at the resorts in that area. Change of scenery was in order. Loving the Boulder Junction area. Hope this helps.

Haven’t fished the BJ area in quite a few years but am thinking of planning a trip up there next year. Can you guys give me an opinion on the overall fishery health of the lakes up there. Thanks
