Just spent a week on the lake. Water was quite High Nothing going on first 5 daze. Everyone I talked to had no luck. Then come Wen. things changed. Next two daze, caught a few dozen L.M., most were dinks. Pan fish coming up in shallows. And there were dozens around the pier and pontoon.  Be scared of sticking a foot in off the pier, darn things are like Piranha !  I see the limit on Walleye was raised to 3.  I need to figure out how to find the Crappie and Walleye on the lake. Bass fishing is definitely off  from what it used to be.  Catch & release, guess I'm part of the problem.

Itwasthisbigiswear; Not to "Dis" you,  been going up for 20 yrs now, and have seen a lot of muskies pulled out of Island.  We're on the point just west of the channel, see folks working the outside {deep} weed-line 150+ yards offshore catching a lot.  Lost enough spinnerbaits over the years to be irritated. Yea, some were Northerns, but most happened right next to the boat, and I could see 'em snap !  Keep on Swingin'! What's  the saying ? "Fish of 10,000 Casts"?

And for those who like Skeets,  they exploded Wen-Thur..  If'n ya use the launch off "D", better goop up good before going in there !!!!!!

I've seen a few people wondering about the size of the fish on this lake, numbers, etc.  Over the last two years I've fished the lake 15 - 20 times.  About 40% of that time has been spent on island, and I have not seen one musky on it.  On the other lakes however, I see at least one fish almost every time I go.  Most have been over 30 inches... did boat a 42, had one smack at a spinner that had I huge tail, had to be 40's, and had one follow that was no less than 45 inches on a spinner.  The one caught was on a bulldawg, the majority of others were following on spinners but have never actually bit or followed into an 8. Sizewise at least the fish I see are bigger on average than the other lakes I fish.

Not sure about walleye on this lake, might be worth a trip to the chetek chain to snag a couple of those.  As for bass, rubber weedless worms and running over the top of the weeds with an inline spinner can be useful.  My dad caught a few just slowly twitching a floating rapala over the weed tops to, the smaller ones went nuts for that.

Family just got a cabin on Island Lake. Looking for pointers on finding  walleye and bass. I'm a one trick pony when it comes to fishing, I normally just cast shoreline with cranks but the weeds on the lake make that nearly impossible. Any and all information would be helpful.

Was up August 1st-8th. Fishing was great all week. Got lots of crappies on chain lake up to 11" and got 25 over 13" on island lake. All fish caught on plastics. Also caught 28, 30, and 36" northerns. We ended up with two musky both around 36". They were my kids first they had a blast. We stayed at Backwoods and had great time. Almost forgot my 10 year old also caught a 31" gar and we did get two walleyes but they were both 11.5". Good fishin- Beaverrods Cool

I just plan on staying on Island, not venturing down the chain.
