I've seen a few people wondering about the size of the fish on this lake, numbers, etc. Over the last two years I've fished the lake 15 - 20 times. About 40% of that time has been spent on island, and I have not seen one musky on it. On the other lakes however, I see at least one fish almost every time I go. Most have been over 30 inches... did boat a 42, had one smack at a spinner that had I huge tail, had to be 40's, and had one follow that was no less than 45 inches on a spinner. The one caught was on a bulldawg, the majority of others were following on spinners but have never actually bit or followed into an 8. Sizewise at least the fish I see are bigger on average than the other lakes I fish.
Island Lake, Rusk County
Not sure about walleye on this lake, might be worth a trip to the chetek chain to snag a couple of those. As for bass, rubber weedless worms and running over the top of the weeds with an inline spinner can be useful. My dad caught a few just slowly twitching a floating rapala over the weed tops to, the smaller ones went nuts for that.
Family just got a cabin on Island Lake. Looking for pointers on finding walleye and bass. I'm a one trick pony when it comes to fishing, I normally just cast shoreline with cranks but the weeds on the lake make that nearly impossible. Any and all information would be helpful.

Just got back from my Spring visit. Nothing noteworthy on my part. But, made a comment in here about Walleye's making a come back,,,,,,,,,,,? Watched a group 200' off the pier pull in a 26" Eye, while fishing for a perch / gill dinner.
