Hey bmoney,

I live on LCO and fish it all the time (and a few of the surrounding lakes occasionally).  Would love to trade information anytime.  Feel free to drop me a message.

Wondering which is the best boat launch for this lake. I haven't fish there in 30 years I'd like to go back there thanks for your help.

I saw a report from one of the guides last Friday that he was with the DNR on Musky Bay.  He said the bay was open and they had post spawn fish in the nets.

I haven't been out there. Both LCO and Grindstone still had some ice cover on Sunday. I may try to get out there this Friday. It would be neat to catch some pre spawn walleyes out there if they haven't spawned yet.

anyone been out?  i'm guessing the walleyes haven't even spawned yet, or are in process as we speak.

I have been fishing in 10-15' of water in Musky Bay every day, usually from mid-afternoon until dark though occasionally you might see me out there during the morning hours if I am not working. If you see a green Silverado, feel free to stop over and say hi.

The fishing was fast and furious around 1/21, 1/22, and 1/23 for panfish. I caught some large bluegills and few crappies during those three days and I saw two guys near me catch a whole mess of crappie on 1/21.  Since then, the bite has died off (at least in my case) and I barely caught a fish worth keeping until 1/27 and since then it has been fairly slow unless you enjoy catching 3" bluegill and perch. Every depth and every place I've tried for the past few days I've caught the same bait-stealers. Unfortunately I'm fishing old-school right now -- no fish locator, no power auger -- and so I don't know what exactly might be swimming around and I only drill a few holes each day.

If you do drive out to Musky Bay from Thors Ln., there is a pretty good road to follow.  Avoid the south side of the bay though, as that ice is has a lot of slush on top (though there still seems to be plenty of solid ice under). Ice depth in the bay seems to be around 18" everywhere I've drilled and the few holes I drilled in the channel, I've found about 24" of ice.

I'm not sure where all the crappie and bluegills have moved to but I sure wish I could find them. I know a lot of people fish in the channel near the edge of the weeds going into Musky Bay but I'm not sure what they are fishing for. I'm guessing a mix of panfish and northern. I've never caught anything in that area myself.

Now that I'm signed up, I'll continue to post reports. I'd love to hear from anyone else on where the fishing is hot, as well, especially since I'm new to the lake (and area)!
