Another great group of people supporting Northern Wisconsin. An awesome family, new friends.

Although cool weather of the last several days has been taking place, a warm up is on its way starting Wednesday and lasting thru Saturday, low 80's for Friday and Saturday. As currently forecast.

Our Walleye today were caught from different locations. Some were in the deep wood and some were from the weeds. Minnows were best today although, we did use Crawlers with no luck. The bite was strong, solid hits. Slip bobbers worked and yes, the color of our hook did make all the difference.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

God Bless

Cool morning and stable weather the past week have been a nice change from the summer heat and rains.  Fishing has improved too a bit because of it.  Although summer looks to be sticking around still with the forecast calling for upper 70’s – low 80’s this week. 
 
Musky:  Good-Very Good – Top-water continues to produce fish.  Baits that make a lot of noise like the Whopper Plopper or Topper Stopper are good choices.  Spinnerbaits and bucktails have also put fish in in the boat over weed flats.  We’re having more reports of Muskies taking small to medium sized suckers as well. 
 
Northern Pike:  Good-Very Good – Inline spinners, chatterbait and spinnerbaits have all been a good choice for Pike.  Work these baits over weed beds.  Suckers and chubs have also been producing some good size Pike too. 
 
Smallmouth Bass:  Good – Gravel humps and sandgrass flats are good areas to fish right now.  Ned rigging and drop-shotting Chompers worms or 3” Gulp Minnows are good bets for these areas.  Reports of nice Smallies 4 to 5 pounds being reported. 
 
Largemouth Bass:  Good-Fair – Wacky rigging, Ned rigging and Texas rigging are all catching fish.  Just slow down your presentation, cooler nights and mornings are making the Largemouth not as active as they were in August. 
 
Crappie:  Good-Fair – Plastics, such as tubes, twister tails and Crappie thumpers are good choices.  Small fatheads under a slip float will get the job done as well.  Work the top sections of weeds at the deepest point before breaks.  Early morning and evening are best times. 
 
Yellow Perch:  Good-Fair – Worms, small fatheads and frozen softshells are all getting Perch to hit.  Look for cribs 8-14’ of water and drowned wood. 
 
Bluegill:  Good-Fair – Clear weather the past week has helped improve the fishing.  Look for Gills suspended off weed edges in 12-16’ of water. 
 
Walleye:  Fair – Bluebird skies this week has made it tough on fishing.  Though a few Walleye being reported.  Fishing early morning or after dark is your best bet.  Fathead, chubs and crawlers are taking fish.  Drop offs 12-18’ of water and after dark look for the Walleye to be in 8-12’ of water. 
 
Hasn’t cooled enough yet to see significant color change.  A couple of trees here and there for now.  Bring your sun screen if you are headed out this week.

Another great family supporting Northern Wisconsin. An awesome family and new friends.

Although the cool weather of the last several days has been taking place, a warm up is on its way for this coming week.

Working the deeper water was best for us. A simple Crappie minnow was good. Bobbers work, Jigs work and even trolling is working.

As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

Watched 4 nice people Musky fishing today in the same boat off our point. They were there all day. They boated a nice Musky early in the morning and then a second one later. Not sure if they got anymore.

Bucktails, Bull Dogs and other baits were being used.

Good people supporting Vilas County Wisconsin. Good job guys, see you in the morning. I will be heading out for a 1/2 day around 1 PM.


God Bless

311/burroak - the channels are navigable, but the water is a touch low right now. The good news is the shallowest channels (Fence to Placids, Interlaken to Moss) are sandy, so the worst case scenario is you get hung up on the sand and have to re-center. Just make sure you're paying attention to where the deepest part of each channel runs to save yourself the headache of having to get out and push in certain areas. 


Here was a 20", 4 lber from the Flambeau chain last week. I just need to teach my dad how to hold a bass...

Sure - You can even squeak a pontoon through all the channels there.  Just trim up a little and idle right on.

No problems navigating the channels  on the LDF Chain - you can get to every lake with ease.


Good Luck !!
