FISHING REPORTS:

Another anticipated Opener has come and gone. The weather was great and the fishing was pretty good depending on the body of water. Here's where we seem to be right now from my experiences and reliable reports. The darker bodies of water, like the flowages and some reservation lakes, the water temps are near or at 50 degrees. A lot of the walleyes being caught are all spawned out. The bigger clearer lakes like Minocqua, Big and Little Saint Germain, Big and Little Arbor Vitae, have just lost their ice so their water temps are in the low 40's still. The walleyes there seem to be in the middle of the spawn or just getting at it. The smaller lakes like Mid, Little John and Arrowhead, Lost and Found, the water temp is in the mid to upper 40's and the walleyes are right in the middle of the spawn. Expect these conditions to gradually move forward in the spawn over the next week or two as the water temps continue to rise. If you want walleyes now get to those bodies of water that the temps are the highest on as the males should be feeding after the spawn and they will soon be followed by those bigger females. The larger minnows and baits seem to be working the best.

In the meantime the pike have been pretty active. Small or big, they are coming on stronger each day. Today we actually caught half of them on crawlers, as well as XL Fats and Blacktail chubs. When we used the crawlers a few perch got in on the action, too.

The forecast for fishing is looking really good. The walleyes are about a week away from becoming very active on most lakes. Get out there in the evening, if you can, with a Fire Tiger Rapala, casting those rocky shorelines. Of course many other baits will work as well but the FT Original never goes out of style.

A quick note about the Dewey Catchem and How bait shops this year. We have basically shut down our wholesale bait operations and moved that pricing into the bait shops in Minocqua and Arbor Vitae. For example, you can now get jumbo night crawlers for only $5 for 2 doz and $2.75 for 1 doz. And these are all in Fat n Sassy bedding. Another example is $2 for a scoop of crappie minnows. And these are everyday prices. Plus, if you join our BAIT BUCKS program, which is free, you can save even more. For every $100 you spend over time you get a $10 credit. There are a few exceptions but not many. We invite you to take advantage and sign up today.

Get out there and have some fun folks. It's gonna get better every day now. And if you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong!

Great time on the lake today. First time out. Busy at the launch. All people courteous. Lots of kayaks. Water is very clear indeed. We caught some fish. Nothing huge, but got four different species...largemouth, smallmouth, bluegill, rock bass. One nice largemouth. Two other nice hits. Tough conditions, high pressure, sunny day, clear water. Biggest hits and the one nice bass were in 15- 22 FOW off a break or wood etc...

Caught a couple walleyes up shallow near some downed wood. Few smallies mixed in between also. Lake level is way up, overall nice day on the water.


Anyone ever fish this lake for lake trout? Are there even enough fish to make it worth your time?

I lost the phone number to the family I usually buy wood from.  They are located just off woodruff road about a mile or two north of the campground.  If anyone has the number can you please PM it to me. Thank you.

I guess ice would make it easier. I guess the next question is how does one curry enough favors to get land like that completely surrounded by state forest near Minocqua.

Anyone know how those houses on the lake ever got built? 

Heavy and large materials are hauled over the ice in the winter.

Fished the lake this afternoon and caught tons of post spawn bass in the wooded shallows. Got lucky and landed a nice walleye hiding out in the same area. Overall great day of fishing.

Pig Bass, the small bay/lake to the Northeast of the narrows is where most of the largemouth live. It's shallower and has softer shorelines with lots of fallen logs. Smallness spawn in any of the coves/bays on the main Lake, especially the northwest Bay and around the island. Hope you're not hoping to find bass similar to your call sign. Fished it about a dozen times and 18" is about tops for me. If you're looking for bigger bass this is not the lake I'd recommend.

i am sure a Google search would provide a lot of info you could apply to any lake

Wondering if anyone could provide info about spawning locations for the smallmouth and largemouth? Not looking to target fish on beds, just trying to find locations for pre-spawn fishing.
