Was out with a couple of sisters today. We did well fishing areas of wood and weeds.  Caught a mixed bag of northern, walleye, perch, smallmouth bass, bluegill, and rock bass. Had a small musky hit right at the boat.  Good times.

Musky fishing on the TFF yesterday...  Had friends staying on the Turtle Arm, so went to the Sturgeon landing and fished in that area for 3 hours for league...  Water temps were 76*-77* most every where we went...  The big wind rolling up the arm allowed for lots of shallower spots to be targeted with topwaters for both of us so that we didn't have to fight the wind if we snagged. 

Had a maybe 30" fish hooked up for a bit, but my partner was new to fishing and for our second trip she got way better at casting and doing the figure 8, but with no net lesson, we didn't do very well at that part...  with the water temps and the smaller size of the fish, there was no need to actually net it for any pic, but it was a really pretty little brown guy!!!  It hit in about the 4' range near weeds and took it right at the boat just before the 8. 

While I've fished the flowage before for eyes, it was a first time for the musky, so I was very content to have had action on my first trip there.  Oh and I was very pleased with my mapping for the area I was in!!!   Got a chance to mark at least five spots with the skull and crossbones, but the depth was enough to run the boat in and we stayed away from any tall wood in those running depths!!!  Stay safe and enjoy the beauty of one of Wisconsin's great natural assets!!!  Also thanks to those who post frequently on this thread, this is one body of water I always enjoy reading about!!!

It seems the muskies are waking up. Two more today, fished with father and son, really nice day on the water, temperature near perfect with a good wind blowing not sure why an abrupt change in the temperament of the fish. We spent a good part of our time thrashing shallow weeds with bucktails, had a musky late morning along with pike. For a lunch break we anchored on a perch/walleye spot and put 4 bobbers out, plan was to pull the anchors after eating and cast the spot for musky. In our brief stay we caught walleyes and perch, father, Mark was bringing in a fish I noticed a good bend in the rod and grabbed the net, he said no it's a small fish, no I don't think so, before I saw the fish he said wow look at that! there was a musky about 3' below the surface with a big perch in his mouth, I told Mark to lift the rod a little and scooped up the fish before he spit the perch. I guess it was a good day for muskies we caught one on our break from musky fishing. We had a good laugh got a nice picture and released the approximate 36" fish. 

Our chance for a big fish came late in the day when the guard was down a little too low, too much talking and not watching the bait, a big fish hit at boatside with the bait wound up to the leader, seemingly to me half out of the water. The intent of the trip was father and son time on the water, they took the missed fish in stride, I think it is easy for a guide to lose site of the true intentions of a trip, I wanted the fish in the net, it didn't really bother them.

Enjoyed time on the water with a lot of nice people thank you.

I have excellent service anywhere on the flowage with att.  As far as beaching a boat, most of the time you can find a place near a site where there is sand to beach.  I usually tie the bow off on shore, and run an anchor or two off the stern, to let my boat float freely instead of pulling it up on sand and rocks.  It’s not going anywhere and i like to keep my transducer out of the sand.  I’m always wearing sandals anyways so i will walk in the water to get to the boat.

verizon is pretty spotty at best,  also on the wind, a light breeze keeps the bugs down and aids in cooling.

Thanks for the quick reply.  Unfortunately I have a fiberglass boat.... Are the rocks on the shore where you'd beach like pebble size or more like golf ball size and up?  That's a bit of a bummer as I was hoping to bring the boat, but can always resort to canoeing.

My last question, and I know it may be blasphemous, but is there cell reception on most of the lake or at least at certain areas?  I don't plan to be on it, but have small children and would like to be accessible if possible :)

Marv and Connie at Donners also do up the best burgers on the east side of the Turtle Flambeau.

I have been fishing and camping on the Flowage the past several years in mid to late August. You will fine with your boat at most campsites. The water level is down pretty good that time of year so there is plenty of beach to pull up your boat and tie it off to a tree. Some sites are more wind protected than others, so maybe find one tucked in a cove or protected from the wind. The only issue I would have is if i had a fiberglass boat as most of the sites have rock or gravel “beaches”. I have a 17 foot aluminum and have not had an issue. 

We have stopped at Donners for ice. I am not sure about beer, as the ones we purchased were at the bar. I would assume they would sell carry outs.
