For bass there are a lot of bays with a lot of weeds. I've had luck throwing topwater frogs and punching the weeds for them.
Caldron Falls Flowage, Marinette County
I’m coming up from Milwaukee to camp here this weekend. Last year I hit some dink crappies and perch. This year looking to try for bass/pike/musky. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Never landed or had on a musky before, would look forward to the opportunity. Are walleye active in this body of water?
Any word on ice/slush conditions?
Coming up to fish caldron for the first time for specifically crappies.
Any tips on certain bays or areas to start from? I'll be there from sun up to sun down putting in the footwork, but would appreciate some advice.
Thanks for your time,
We caught 4 northern in 4 hours between two of us yesterday. I saw a lot of bluegills swimming around on my camera. The ice was at least 17 inches. I couldn't get a decent measurement on the bottom edge of the ice. Plenty of trucks driving everywhere.
Anyone been out here lately? Wondering how ice conditions are and if there is a lot of snow on ice or if a wheeler would be fine?
First ones out on cauldron falls. 2 inches of soft stuff with 4 or 5 inches of nice clear black ice under it. Caught a few crappie but only had 2 hours to fish and check on the the cabin Great day all in all.
Any one have an ice condition report? I am coming up to the area on Friday night and would like to get out on some ice on Saturday.
Thanks for any info.

We fished Saturday from 9-3. Small bays on the east end were all frozen up.
Warmest water temp was 37.5. Did find pockets of bait fish but no Muskie. Suckers the whole time under bobbers at varying depths.Great to be out one last time though, and the wife didn't complain about the cold once!! And yes she was on the boat with me.....
Did see several duck hunters and herd a few shots.
I would examine where your fishing closely and try finding bait fish. They are in there. If that doesn't work try bass fishing, since thats how I always seem to catch them ;-)
