Its a decent lake for panfish and I have caught an occasional musky. Kind of shallow at the landing and when you go through the channel to get to the lake. Watch for hazards. Fish the weedlines for gills on the south end and just work the shoreline around the lake.
Is this lake never fished, that there are no real reports ever?
Heading to Allequash with the daughter for a few nights of camping. How has the fishing been? Looking for enough to have a fresh meal. Is it worth going to the other side and fishing?
Looking to head up north to do some bass fishing. This lake caught my eye and I am wondering how the bass fishing is in the summer! Any information is appreciated.
LVD is 3 Walleyes over 18"
What lakes have a 1 bag limit for walleyes in Vilas County? Please share.....to my knowledge there isn't. All lakes are 3 with varying size restrictions (15" min, one over 14" or 3 under 14", 18" min, some have slots 15" with zero bag between 20-24")....
Can I ask what is the BEP thread ? Is that a other fishing link
Thank you for the report and look forward to the next one as well... We are happy that you come north to enjoy our fine scenery and fishing as well!!! We have learned up here that is best to help others like you are doing, but to do it at the right times and with the right information, however you do as you please.
For others coming up to fish, here are the Allequash regs for the year upcoming and I don't know how it corresponds to last year:
"During May and June, 15 panfish may be kept, but only 5 of any one species. During the remainder of the season, 25 panfish may be kept."
I am sure that you are a law abiding fisherman. But our grumpiness stems from watching these small lakes get pounded by locals as well as tourists. After all we/and MN have the only safe ice sheets left in the Midwest to ice fish on. You can continue to give out fishing reports helping your fellow fisherman. We prefer to help those who are asking and without providing lake names, am happy to give info regarding safety issues, depths, weeds or woods, etc. to help anglers coming to our area be able to dial the fishing patterns in.
If someone chimes in on Allequash for example, I'd be happy to help with what info I currently know and sometimes historically know and many times will only answer on their private message. Will that change the pressure this lake gets, probably not... but it sucks watching lakes like Squirrel get pounded for 5 years in a row till there's nothing left, again that's locals and tourists... it just sucks...
Look forward to your report soon!!!
Well Muskie Ben, I would say both. Allequash can be a super lake and the way it recoups every year is amazing. But it gets pounded as I bet you already know as I don't think you are a stranger to the area. I don't even like seeing this lake thread come up as not everyone has the common sense to protect the resource. The new regulations are a good thing and I think they could even tighten them up some more. From what I understand it also gets damaged from over harvest during the summer.
Extremely over-fished or overharvested???
