Fish it every year in September for a whole week. Stay at Wright's Resort. My family has been fishing it for over 55 years. In 1972 my father caught a 51 1/4 inch and we have been trying to best him ever since. We take him along , he is 84 this year. Still loves to fish them.

I fished sand last week twice. I had a blow up next to the boat on a top water lure. Never saw the fish but it sounded like someone jumped off the boat lol. I’m guessing it was pretty big. That was right at dawn never had or saw another fish though. That lake is pretty tough.

Nice catch . Haven't fished Island for a number of years. Usually fish Sand just down the road. Maybe next time I am up in the area.

Hey ResQ91 ,  Pretty slim pickings in here.  I'll post a few times a year after returning home. We use a Family Cabin on "Island".  All I can say is check in from time to time.  This was a really active page several years back.  Lately not so much.

Anyone still posting on the Island Chain?
Finally got a place here and interested in hearing fishing reports!
We were up last week on McCann for Crappie and pretty slow going.

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.
