Yes Mayfly have hatched and will continue to have periodic hatches throughout the next 2-4 weeks.  Find a weedbed and throw some kind of spinner bait over the tops of the weeds and you will get bit. The weedbeds are plentiful and won't be hard to find. Its strictly catch and release on walleyes.

coming up this Thursday (6/24) and leaving sunday (6/27) has there been a mayfly hatch on any of the chain of lakes yet? looking to fish for basically anything but mainly looking to catch smallies and walleyes. any pointers to depths or structure to start out would be helpful, we can figure out where to go from there! TIA

GB Trout,

I've been catching the occasional pike and bass on the weed line in about 12 feet of water. However, I suspect those species are hanging out shallower. You should have success fishing the weeds in 4-10 feet of water.

Northern pike season opened May 1. You can keep 5 of any length, but it looks like you're catch-and-release anyway. Bass are open for catch-and-release yearround in Wisconsin.

I practice catch-and-release too. I use a behemoth Beckman net on the public pier. I see the DNR boat sometimes, but the the warden mainly seems concerned with obnoxious pleasure boaters. I'm sure others have had different experiences though.

I'm sure you'll catch some nice pike and bass. I caught my personal-best pike (30") and largemouth (18") on that lake.

Bring any net/lure you want. There isn’t a lawman in the world who can arrest or ticket you because of what they think you might do. Don’t do anything illegal. Large net never leaves the boat.

I'd think you'd be fine as long like you said, you're not throwing/using typical musky stuff.

Heading up to Minocqua the week of the 24th ~ mostly going for bass (all C&R).

I'd also like to target pike and I know there is also a chance of a musky hitting ~ 2 questions I had related to this I'm hoping someone could help me with:
1 - Will DNR give me any trouble going for pike right now? Not using a 9ft rod with bulldawgs or anything like that ~ was thinking at most some 1/2 oz spinner baits and Mepps 4's/5's.
2 - Someone told me not to bring the big net or DNR will think I am targeting them.... but... on the off chance a musky does hit, I'd rather be prepared and be able to safely C&R. Any advice?

Thanks everyone ~ tight lines!
