Just got back from my week vacation. Horrible fishing compared to all the other years I've been going up. About 15 keeper pearch 3 keeper gills and only 5 crappie. I did get a nice 29in pike,caught it on my ultra lite and a pink mini mite while looking for crappie. No green weeds to be found, they sprayed the lake to kill them off and I hear it's gonna happen again next year.

Heading up next weekend for a week with my family. I was wondering if anyone has tips for musky on this lake? Two of my three sons have never caught a musky. Any tips would be great. We normally stay on Big St. Germain. But we're trying something different this year. Thanks

I found a transom saver in about 4' of water straight out of the boat landing yesterday about 10:30am.  PM me with a description if you think it is yours.

Just finished up a family vacation where we rented a cottage on this lake and fished last week.  First time fishing this lake, and only the second time we have fished a north woods WI lake.  Overall, a nice experience despite the cool/rainy weather for most of last week.  Also, the lake was pretty tranquil until Friday night when the weekend yahoos pulled their jet skis out to mindlessly tear around the lake, but I digress.

 Targeted most species other than Muskie.  Mostly threw spoons for pike, but ended up catching only about 15 for the week, with the biggest being a 30" caught by my son early in the week.  Other pike caught were much smaller, and few and far between.  Caught a lot of small gills and perch for a couple nights worth fish frys, 6 largemouths in the 15" range, and 5 decent sized crappie.  The 'trophy' of the trip was this 19" walleye that my 12yo son caught at the end of the week.  It was his first walleye ever and he was determined to catch one during the trip.  One happy kid.

Heading up with the family during the week of the 4th. Just wondering how the lake is this year, water levels, weeds, etc. This is probably last year of going up after 20 plus years. Maybe meet up with some of you guys over at murmming waters for a drink.

What a difference a day makes. On Saturday, I drove by and so many people were on the ice. It was amazing really. Must be the lack of ice down south drove people up, and I don't blame anyone for heading north for the ice. I would do the same thing.  But, then, Sunday, got there probably around 12:15 and  the last guy in the parking lot was leaving the ice as I was coming on.  Fished with the family with 12 tip ups and other than one homeowner who was out for a bit-we had the whole area all to ourselves. Fishing was really dead for quite a while, but we hit a window later in the afternoon where the pike were really active and flags were flying for a while. Iced 4 as a family.. All still swimming.  Anytime one can ice fish in 40 degree weather with the wife and kids, it's a plus!
