Since the musky season is over here is my "creel census" for the year.    I fished the TFF sporadically all year.    I live in Milwaukee and never went two weeks without fishing but never was up there more than 5 nights in a row.    

My son and I caught and released 13 muskies with the first one on July 7 and the last one on October 28.    We caught them everywhere from near the Turtle River to Rat Lake to Baraboo to the Flambeau river section.     Here are their lengths in order (in inches).   30, 38 1/2, 40 1/2, 40 1/2, 39, 43, 42 1/2, 41, 35, 42 3/4, 29, 39, 42 1/2. 

Surprisingly to me, although I used suckers all year, every fish I caught was on a lure.   Not a bite on a sucker all year.      I love our lake and can't wait til next year!

Paul,  had some shell ice this  morning.  Take a look at the Facebook page for Donners Bay resort for a good photo from today.

How much is draw down compared to normal lake levels?  Is it down as far as they'll take it?  Or, will they draw it down further?

Since Mother Nature took away the last 20 days of our musky season this year, maybe the DNR could give them back to us next May?    I heard all the launches were blocked with ice this morning.

Too soon for the ice updates?  Hope to get out ice fishing opening weekend.  Hope the snow I see in the forecast for the next few days doesn't kill it.  Thanks
