There is plenty of ice and easy travel conditions. There were trucks all over yesterday.

We had a group that fished in the derby last weekend.  We fished a mud flat on the northern half of the lake.  We mainly used rosie reds and emerald shiners.  Fishing was slow for our group.  We had a lot of flags where something grabbed it, took out six inches of line and then dropped it.  We mostly caught perch..biggest was 10".  We also caught a bunch of small walleyes.  I bet we had about a dozen of them in the 6-8 inch range.  Hopefully all those little guys can continue to grow and make for some fun fishing in a few years.  Ice was sloppy.  Lots of water/slush on top.  Trucks were driving all day.  By the evening the bottom of the landing had a big pool of water.

Biggest walleye of the tourney was a little over 25",  Biggest Northern was 30", biggest Perch was 11", and I think Crappie was around 14".

I've fished Butternut many times and have only gotten 1 small bass. Really not a bass lake. I think that 1st cast bass is an episode of good luck

My family is going up to our cabin on butternut over Memorial Day weekend. We always have awesome luck with walleyes, perch, and musky. But what about bass? I know there isn't a lot of them in there, but I would like to try it. Any info would be helpful. My dad rents out the cabin, and a guy caught this largemouth first cast off of our dock a few years ago. Thanks.

I will be staying on the lake for a week at the end of July and am wondering if I could get pointed it the right direction to catch some pan fish for a fish fry and maybe a musky or two for the family members who have never caught one. Thank you.

For those interested in the walleye bag limits in the ceded territory I went the the dnr website and put in 2015 walleyes in ceded territory, most lakes were listed by county, Butternut is a 3 fish limit with one fish over 14", Turtle Flambeau Flowage is 3 fish no size limit, and the Chippewa Flowage is a 15" size limit up to 20" and 1 fish over 24" so fish from 20" to 24" cannot be kept, so help the fishery with bigger walleyes in the future

Anyone still interested in joining Walleyes for Tomorrow you can join the Price County Chapter by calling Joe at the Polish Palace 715 339-3566 I believe it costs $25.00 a year or call John at Ross's he can steer you in the right direction.
