Hello Linkers.  I am looking at taking a fall vacation to the northwoods.  Most people this time of year are chasing skis or after eyes, but I would like to fish for big fall bronzebacks or even the green ones are fine too.  Can anybody recommend some northern Wisconsin lakes that are good for bassin and also possible resorts / hotels to stay close to the area?  Last year I took the little lady to North Twin in Phelps and that was a flop as it was no where near the bass lake I thought it might be.  Any recommendations up north whether it is west, central, or close to the UP (vilas cty) would be appreciated.

TFF is indeed a great smallmouth destination, and for a place to stay, you should check out Flambeau Vista... Scott and Kathy are great hosts, and the accommodations are first class

Turtle Flambeau Flowage is great for Smallmouth.  I recommend Donner's Bay Resort.

Turtle Flambeau has some great smallmouth fishing available.. it is a very large body of water, so a guide may be advisable, or just read thru the reports on Lake-Link

a good source of information : www.turtleflambeauflowage.com/

you can get a map from them, and in the FISHING section, there are links to fishing reports

Great advice there...about Trout Lake.

Consider this....don't stay at a place on any lake.  If you do, you will more or less be "locked" into that lake.  If you are fishing Vilas County, move around.  Hit different lakes.  Doing that is a lot of fun.  If you are locked into staying at a resort on a lake, make sure it has a launch, or a launch is close by.  That way you will have great options when you want to fish.

If you look at the Cisco Chain, Jay's Resort is very nice and has a launch about 1/3 mile down the road.  Very convenient if you want to pull out of there and hit some other lakes in the area.

If you are after a trophy ,Trout lake is hard to beat.  Smallies are footballs packed with crayfish.  Several motels in Boulder Junction 5 min. away.  Lots of other smaller lakes with good small mouth populations.  Pick up a Fishing the North Country fishing map book.  It is worth the money for the information you get about the lakes.  I've got the complete series for Vilas county.
