Went to the Gile today, first time for me on this lake, what a gem!  Launched by the dam and spent some time searching the river channel for fish, couple bites but no hookups.  Then I started hitting some steep rocky dropoffs by islands, and started connecting on walleye.  Ended up catching 15 or so walleye, and missed just as many, most were very small but I did harvest a couple 13" fish for dinner.  No other boats as far as I could see, this is really a beautiful lake.  All fish caught on large fatheads.  Can't wait to get back during winter.

Paddled the outside of the Gile today, staying pretty close to shore. GPS said 21 miles, does anyone know what the official shoreline distance is? I thought 27, butI cannot find info. on it now? Water was down ~3 feet, and I did not go to the east of Hwy C, so I wonder if that makes up the difference? Had a great burger afterwards at The Burger Bar...yummy!

the tourist thing is huge.. all the stocking pretty much ends at Mercer.. more so Minoqua.  hard to tell.  the biggest issue is now the spiny water flea..  there's no stopping invasive s.

Probably a couple things working against more stocking. It's basically far and out of the way from prime tourist areas, not very popular because of the navigation, and I've heard there have been some really bad die offs some years from the water fluctuation. Could be any combo of that...

Not sure that's the reason. They held a meeting with the locals in 05 and came up with a new management program and muskies where the 3rd highest priority to walleyes and by one vote more, perch. I thought they may be monitoring natural reproduction. They came up with a density of .1 per acre and supposedly where looking to increase this density but the stocking does not reflect this.

to sum it up:  because nobody eats musky?    locals don't chase muskies?   they eat what the locals like to catch?  and they are working on other species....   best i have for u.

Anybody know why the dnr cut musky stocking so much out here. They used to dump 2500 or so every other year. Seems like it's been super slow for the past 3 years compared to the 7 I fished before. Checked the website and there's only been 3000 put in in the last 12 years. My understanding is that there is no natural reproduction did something change?
