Refisher, can you share images of the bait balls? If not, make sure to take pics with your cell phone next time. That will help us decipher what you were looking at. Thanks you.

My son and I made the trip to Elkhart Lake yesterday to try and get on some smallies. Fishing was slow with only one bass caught in about 3 hours. I had a baby musky hit a sinko and we saw another musky cruising the shallows. We were just about to call it a day and jump to another lake when my son hooked into a giant.
I stayed at the lake this weekend for my 10 year wedding anniversary. After pleading with my wife all weekend I finally got some fishing in on Saturday evening. Woah this lake is awesome! We caught about a dozen bass in a couple of hours most of them were pretty small but it was still super fun. This lake reminds me of a mini version of Big Green LOL! I am taking my son back soon to explore the lake some more!

Thanks for the info guys (and to those that sent me messages). I was under the impression that the ciscos were showing up as big bait balls but a couple of you have mentioned that those are probably minnows or smaller ciscos and that stacks of fish are larger cisco. I'm familiar with the report you're talking about mingus- I believe that they say elkhart has one of the highest population densities in the state, in addition to some of the biggest. No wonder the musky grow so well here.
According to DNR surveys, Elkhart has the highest rate of ciscoes per acre over any lake in Wisconsin. Nearby Crystal Lake also has a high number of ciscoes per acre.
Refiher they are ciscos. Thump some bulldogs down there because there is always muskies in there.
