I fished for about 5 hours the morning of July 28 on the public pier near the Krist gas station. I used minnows and leeches in about 15 feet of water. Bites were steady early in the morning. I caught two 16-inch walleyes and an 8-inch largemouth bass. I whiffed on a couple bites too.

Surprisingly, I caught everything on minnows. Leeches had been working better this summer.

Bites vanished by noon, which is when boat traffic increased. That was my cue to leave. Not a bad morning on the lake though.

I fished for 2 hours July 4 on the deep end of the public dock near the Krist gas station. I caught a 30-inch northern on a minnow. Otherwise, sunfish were eating all my leeches. Action was steady.

As expected on a holiday, boat traffic was ridiculous. I'm looking forward to this fall after the tourists leave.

I fished 4 hours on the afternoon of June 20 in about 15 feet of water on the public dock near the Krist gas station. I used leeches and minnows. I caught a tiny largemouth and a 14-inch smallmouth. I whiffed on two nice bites.

I caught a walleye that was so big ... How big was it? ... It was so big that my 6-pound test line snapped when I tried to lift it out of the water. I know. The big one that got away. Nevertheless, I bet it was in the 25- to 30-inch range. At least it made me finally buy a net.

We are staying in a cabin here with the family next week, I am wondering if this lake is worth muskie fishing or should I go to other area lakes? Any info would be appreciated!

You can still fish for walleyes, you just cannot keep any.

I fished for 6 hours May 19 on the public pier near the Krist gas station. I caught one fish -- a 14-inch bass. I was using slip bobbers with minnows in about 12-15 feet of water. I'm not sure why fishing was so slow. I thought walleyes might bite when the wind and clouds kicked up in the afternoon. Perhaps I was fishing too deep. I didn't see anyone on the dock catch anything though. Maybe the fish just weren't hungry.

northwoodsmusky:

Based on Big Arb...  I'd say about 50*.  I was on one of the deep clears last night and had anywhere from 45* to 52* and you could tell even with a decent jacket on when you were going through fairly cold water.
