Been fishing Shawano Lake for 38 years. Most years were GREAT, some were good, and just a slight seasoning of not so good.  This year very GREAT!  On of my daughters boated a 34" pike and 1.5 hours later another daughter boated a 45.5" musky with a 19.5" girth!!  Both were caught on 6/2217 and of course, both were released and swam away.  We caught pike, bass (some over 21"), and a walley (18").  All fish were released.

Weeds are bad. I have a place on the north shore. Fishing has been bad also. We usually have at least five dead fish on shore. Haven't even seen any float up for a few weeks.

No fishing report or update for over six weeks.  Is anyone fishing Shawano Lake?  I am coming up for three days beginning Wednesday looking for some bass.  Looking forward to pitching some Wacky Senkos and a couple lunch time burgers at The Launching Pad.   Does anyone have any opinion as to how successful the weed treatment from last year was?

Fished the southwest, west and northwest shorelines anywhere from 4 to 10 feet deep on Sunday for a few hours.  Mainly threw double bladed Northland spinner and Berkley Powerworms.  Caught 5 northern and 2 largies which were both 15-16 inches.  All are still swimming. The Northland spinner was by far the best as I caught all but one fish on it.  

It had been a long while between bass trips for me out there.   I remembered quickly why I always avoided fishing on weekends out there.  The amount of people on that lake is staggering!

Last time someone fished less than 10 yds from me in a partners bass tournament and ran right over the spot we had just pulled a good keeper out of he got a well placed 3/4 oz jig at light speed into the side of his outboard cover.   Sends a message to the morons.  Other boats around us gave us a nod and a wink.

I've been out on Shawano Lake the last couple days.  The bass bite has been better either early in the morning or later in the evening.  Spinnerbaits have been working good either in shallow or out over deeper weeds.  Caught a few on plastics around the cane beds.  Lots of boats out on Saturday, had to shake my head at a couple jerks in a red crestliner musky fishing that felt the need to fish right on top of me casting as close as 10yds away.  I'm pretty sure there was enough room on a 6200 acre lake to not have to be inconsiderate.

Fishingnotcatching1 & MikeNitro:

I have been fishing Shawano Lake since 1968, ( before you were born ) so I do consider it to be my lake, and in those 49 years of fishing it I still haven't fished it dry. Secondly, I don't fish bass or northern and I wasn't asking for tips on how to fish. I was only looking to see if the bite was still slow or if any one was having better luck.

As I said in my last post, I'm 60 and disabled ( hit by a drunk forktift driver at work resulting in 3 herniated disks and a hip that was disjointed for the 2nd time). I love to panfish whenever I am well enough to go but, as I said, I would rather not drive 50 miles only to get skunked.

I have been out twice this year. The first time was from 9am -1:30pm and only 9 keepers. The 2nd time (same hrs.) netted 1-15.5" bass and 18 bluegill. ( threw back at least 50 perch less than 3.5" ) Fished E and SE of the island in anywhere from 7-13 fow.

Is it wrong to hope to find a little helpfull information so I can put some good, fresh food on my table? 

P. S. This is not the only link I follow, but, it is the only one that doesn't provide any usefull information. I think that that is a terrible shame.
