Thanks, wasn’t able to find it online readily- but I will definitely avoid enjoying the area around that timeframe. Not a fan of tournaments and all that surrounds them. And there seems to be less LMB and SMB than 3/4 years ago. Fish there 2/3 weeks a year. Beautiful lake!

Walleyeking,

If you're targeting walleye, you will be disappointed. 

If you are targeting bass, however, prepare to be pleased.  This lake has become one hell of a good time for bass.  Weightless Texas Rigs in the shallow weeds will get nice largemouth with a hammer handle pike from time to time.  Wacky rigs on rocks and in deeper water will mix in some dandy smallmouth.  Crankbaits at dusk for big smallies on the drop offs.

I've never targeted them, but have seen some nice crappies swimming around while bass fishing but it seems you'd have to pick through a ton of them to catch a meal.

Other than that, this lake is full of structure and you would think it would be the best walleye lake in the world.  Unfortunately, due to over harvest and spearing, the walleye are tough to find and you're better off launching on Namekagon.  If you do target walleye, go at night on Owen.

My opinion on the lake anyway.  I have a place nearby and I choose to go elsewhere.  It is a beautiful lake as far as scenery goes though.
