Any updates or reports for Fence. Haven't fished it before and I'm sure this has been anything but fall like out there but looking to try it this upcoming weekend.
Fence Lake can be a tough one to fish. There are fish some quite large in fact, but you have to find them. I've not caught a single walleye in two years on the lake, but I have probably not fished deep enough. Two weeks ago a friend advised he had caught several in 28 feet of water. That said, from my experience I would rate Fence as a good bass fishery. Lots of nice (some big) smallmouth and good numbers of largemouth as well. A few weeks back I had good success particularly for smallmouth in 8 to 12 feet of water fishing with leeches under slip bobbers and using small tube jigs tipped with leeches. Also got some largemouth on Senko worms. Have also caught some nice perch in Smelt Bay on medium fatheads in 8 to 10 feet of water around submerged weeds. Bluegill are present but tend to run small. Find them in shallow weeds. I'm not a musky fishermen, but know that there are some big ones in Fence. Anyway, good luck. Let us know how you make out.
Hello! Up on fence for the week with the family. Anyone catching any walleyes or any suggestions? Or if there is something else biting just looking to keep the kids interested. Any good areas to catch decent sized bluegills?
Its closed. Heard some gossip it may open in a week or two.
Wondering if the public boat launch is open. Someone I talked to mentioned the flambeau chain launches were closed
