Got out this Am and pushed thru about 20-30 ft of ice at the launch. Ice was all broken up due to the wind- so it wasn’t too bad.  Kicked the motor on while still on the trailer and blew it all out to sea.  Found lots of bait deep -50+ fow.  Lots of big marks too.  Only spent about 30 min on top of bait before the trolling motor took a shit.  Headed back out a bit later.

Have seen trout early in the summer on weed-edges on the aquacam so they are most definitely in there. Not just Fence either.

Some Guides might not like Fence.  I am out there over 60 days a year and see 4 or 5 other guides on a regular basis.  Good electronics,  an anchoring trolling motor, and a lot of searching will help.

This was a stocking done by the Lac du Flambeau Tribal DNR - just like their yearly Walleye stockings. "Nice people over there"

You don't get much walleye action, but when you do their big. Your right Guides don't like fishing Fence.

@ Pat

Thanks so much for the update.

We, a group of 8 - 10, really don' t do well fishing Walleyeye's on Fence even with the stocking efforts. Leaches, worms, minnows etc but just a few fish hear and there. I have heard "Guides" swear off Fence even though is should be a real producer for Walleye. Maybe too much catch & keep going on, I just can't say, that lake should have a bunch of them but doesn't give em up easy.

So a lot of our focus has been Smallies with C & R our primary objective. Smallie's put up the best battle pound for pound and it takes 7-8 years to get to 18" so its C & R for them tuggers.

Thanks again Pat

I'm not sure on the numbers stocked.  No stockings on the Reservation will show up on the State DNR web site.  This was a stocking done by the Lac du Flambeau Tribal DNR - just like their yearly Walleye stockings.  Nice people over there, I'm sure if you gave them a call they would share all the info they have.

It doesn't show up in the DNR stocking database for 2016. Must have been a different source.

Do you know the stocking numbers and sizes for 2016 & 2017 on the Browns?

Fence was stocked with Browns in 2016 & 2017 in hopes to keep the Smelt numbers down.  Gonna take a while for them to grow of course.  The Whitefish on Fence are also big
