Went out from 730 to 11 today. Didnt see anything for a while and then boated a low 30's musky at about 10. Had another hit from something smaller and then boated an 18 inch musky. All within half hour. Didnt see anything else for another hour. I bet alot of follows go unseen in this lake!!! Thanks to whoever gave the tip about fishing the rockpiles on here. That's how I got the bigger one.

I would not recommend Moose as a place to start fishing with kids. The near by Chippewa Flowage would be a better choice as the pan fish population is very good with plenty of action for little ones getting into fishing.
Fished Moose years ago. It can be a tough lake to fish, but there was one pattern that remained consistent. Just off the Virgin Timber resort there is, I believe Banana Island. Towards Virgin Timber the shelf drops off. I would anchor off that shelf in deeper water and either cast small orange and gold rapalas or slip bobber with minnows just before dusk. Get there early the first night and when the first bobber goes down, check your watch.....then show up the next night 10-15 minutes before that and get set up. The action was always fast and furious for 1/2 hour or so, but it sure was fun. Mostly caught walleyes, but did manage a few huge crappies too. Good luck and safe travels
I'm thinking about taking a family vacation up to Moose lake next summer and I'm seeing mixed reviews about the lake. Mostly looking to catch walleye for myself, and panfish for the kids. My son is 5 now and is really getting into fishing so I'd like him to have some good action to keep his interst - we don't necessarily need trophies.

Wife and I fished moose for the first time 9/1 10 -4. Looking for bass and musky. No bass, but saw 10 musky, landed 2, lost 3 at the boat. One came on a small bucktail, all others on spinnerbaits in 2 to 3 fow. Most were 20 something, landed a 34, and saw a 40. Good numbers lake, will be back
Vacationed here June 18-25 fished with the family. Caught 16 crappies the whole time here. Couldn't get the bluegills to bite. Didn't mark many fish. Also caught 2 small walleyes. I think winter a few years ago killed off a lot of the fish but not sure. I should have fished the Chippewa flowage. The cabin on the lake I stayed at was very nice for the price!
