Took the kids up over the weekend and caught a little bit of everything -  crappies, walleyes, SMB, LMB, bluegills, perch, rock bass, and a small musky.  Everything we caught was up in shallow structure.

Looking for help.  Renting a cabin on Boulder Lake for last week of July.  Never been to this lake before.

1) Would like to bring up a 26 ft pontoon boat.  Is there a landing on the lake that could handle this size with depth and length to get a boat that size in and out of water?

2) Looking for a little fishing help for the kids and nephews.  Will most likely fish panfish so looking for advice but may be interested in walleyes or smallmouth bass to let them catch something bigger.  Might keep some panfish for one fish fry but otherwise don't want to spend time cleaning fish.  I get plenty of walleyes from Winnebago so no need to take fish.

Please messenger me if you would be willing to share some advice for that time of the year.  Thanks.

The weather on Friday and Saturday was the ugly version of spring up north.  We still managed to boat a bunch of fish which was quite surprising.  We had to work hard and slow but the fish cooperated.  We caught walleyes, crappies, perch, SMB, LMB, and 6 accidental muskies.  Ironically, muskies seemed to be the most active species, we couldn't keep those buggers off.

Last trip of the year produced 4 muskies in 3 full days with a couple more missed on suckers. Feeding windows were spot-on daily at 10:00 and noon. Multiple bites happening in the 10 minutes on either side of those times. Fish caught ranged from 36" to 40 1/4"; 3 on suckers and 1 on a glide bait.

Got kinda mad with the resort down the line from me the last time up..After fishing, the guys just threw there spent suckers in the woods which draws in varmints as well as my dog who I caught just before she rolled in the crap.

We had some luck this weekend with a 42" ski on a sucker. Water temps ranged from 52-58 depending on the size of the lake. We had more action on the colder lakes, for what it's worth.

Just got back from a GREAT week up in the Boulder Junction area. My trusty Golden Retriever for my fishing buddy...Saw everything from snow on Monday the 11th...to 80 degrees on Sat the 16th. The only thing better than the free beer & GTREAT chicken from Gooches was the fishing. Worked Monday to Wed. nite. Wed. nite caught 7 crappie off the dock. Dinner. Thursday found beatiful perch on the deep side of a weed edge on a mid lake sandbar. Not 1 dink ALL KEEPERS!!! With a 19 inch walleye & 27 inch northern..YEAH....Friday was so calm, water was gin clear, made hooking tough,,,caught 2 legal walleye & damn near cryed having to put back 2 that were 21 & 23 inches (slot limit) that would of made a great picture & dinner.Saturday was THEE day..watched water temps go from 56 to 65 than it was "When the crappie come marching in" crappie time...bullrushes...limit in 3 hours. Weny out at 3 AM with lit slip bobbers & they were still there...is it a gas at nite...no one around & erie dead quiet..It was good that the spawn is done before the masses hit...so I'm set for a good while so now it's time to musky fish. I heard many great reports from last weekend. The Triathalon was cool also...loads of people great for the area. MAKE SURE you go to Gooches on Cty M...damn good food & some some damn good drinkers in there to that'll give you straught poop about the fishing. So cleaned 35 crappie..15 perch...3 legal walleye & 2 northerns, 26-28 inches & must of caught 100 (NO EXAGERATION!!!!) largemourth bass...killer time!!!!!! Townline Spoorts for bait...Dan';s a straight shooter...Island lake must be going wild but the cold weather coming will simmer things down
