We fished kentuck this weekend..it was slow on Friday only 1 walleye and some rock bass..saturday was better caught some decent walleyes but no crappies this weekend...tried deep and shallow couldn't find em...nice weekend on the lake with friends!
We fished McKinley Lake and Butternut Lake both had 5-6" of ice and we met 2 guys on the boat landing at Butternut that said they were fishing Kentuck all morning and caught 1 rock bass and that was it. Not sure on definite depth of ice but we took 4 wheeler on Butternut! That was Saturday morning sorry hope that helps?
how much ice is there?
The launch will be closed August 24 to 28 . The one on Kentuck launch road .
Saw something in Vilas county news. The launch will be closed for a few days for repairs I will try to find it and report .
I was there two weeks ago and the lake was fine. No algae bloom that we saw.
Coming up to Kentuck in about a week and was wondering about algae bloom and deciding if I should bring my dog. Anyone know of an algae bloom in the lake currently?
Been fishing this lake for the last 12 years and over the past 3 seasons noticed the pan-fish population has plummeted. It's to the point where you are lucky to catch a crappie. I have talked with a few guys and word is the spawning seasons have been affected by odd weather patterns in the spring. Over fishing also seems to be a problem. Small mouth and walleye seem to be as healthy as it always was. Still see the occasional muskie. When I first started fishing here you'd get tired of catching pan-fish every cast and start throwing larger lures to change things up. My advice is throw stuff back if its a pan-fish. The regulations for this lake should be changed to reflect the health of the current population for a few seasons to see if it will improve.
