MrPike,

They released 8 fish over 20 inches, keeping medium sized fish to eat.  If the guy wants to keep his fish of a lifetime, let him enjoy the moment.  He may never keep another over 20.  Let the guy enjoy and remember this incredible experience without having to concern himself with ridicule or criticism.

Larry,

Congratulations on the tremendous catch.

Today Larry and Renee from San Antonio, Texas experienced walleye fishing on this deep clear lake. His family has owned a property on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage for over 40 years. In all that time he said his largest walleye was 22 inches. Today  he caught a 29 3/4 incher and they also caught another 8 which were in the 20 to 24 inch slot. He kept the large fish to mount and 4 16 to 19 inchers to eat. He caught the big one but Renee caught most of them. We used slip bobbers with leeches on 20 to 24 ft. bars.

I think this weekend should be better shad, once it gets back in the 80s those fish should turn right on, knowing that fall is coming based on the cool down.

Fishing has been poor lately, with water temps plummeting 10-12 degrees, now in the mid 60's.  What fish are left seem in disarray, even Bluegills near shore are lethargic and slow to bite.

Islandpoint....get up early.  Be fishing by 5:30.  Pick a shoreline that has a weed edge, cast topwater baits.  Buchertail TopRaider.  Color doesn't really matter, but I've always done well on black with green or the blackbird color.  Tallywackers work great, too.

Fish until 8:00 or so, and fish muskies like you would bass.  If it looks like a largemouth would be hanging in an area, odds are there is a musky there, too.  And just like bass fishing, when the sun comes up, look for shaded spots.

Lake wise, it's a popular spot, but the bay around the T-docks is a great place to start.  It's popular because it produces.  Weeds, stumps....etc.  And then you can work into Yellow Birch casting shorelines.

When the sun has been up a while, flip over to bucktails on weed edges closer to deeper water.  Maybe find a black bulldog and rip that on those deep weeds, too.

Good luck.

Islandpoint...I would be casting large Mepps style bucktail spinners or large Dardevle spoons. Trolling...big perch or panfish pattern Rapalas or other shallow diving baits... 4in long or longer. Use a 6in steel leader and vary your retrieve and trolling speed. Good luck!!

EMRacine, Walleye fishing has been good lately.  Fish the weed lines. Most action in 12-18 fow, but some as shallow as 6fow. Jig with half crawler has been working best. Color varies by day. Keep moving for active fish.
