Thanks fshrman30.  We found a few perch over in the area I think you're talking about but around that island in the bay just north of that point.

Didn't get to fish off the point as a storm was approaching and wanted to get the family off the water.

I'm appreciative of your advice.  A bit windier today so will see how that affects things.  

Haven't ventured through the channel to spider lake yet so might check that out as well.


Thx again

We fished Island Lake a few years ago and did quite well on walleyes,smallmouth bass,and black crappies. The walleyes and smallmouth were found on the tip of the large peninsula on the southwest shoreline. We just kept going back and forth along the flat tip of the peninsula with live bait mostly crawlers and leeches.The crappies were found along the shoreline in the bay just to the west of the afore mentioned peninsula. We would hit all the brush along the shoreline with a slip bobber and minnow. Northern Pike are also quite common anywhere there are weeds.

I really haven't fished Island in the suummer for a long time and at that point we were only really fishing for musky.  If I had to guess for locations, I'd try up either river inlet, in the wood on the Manitowish R. side or the weeds in the Rice Cr. side.  Other than that the two bays by the outlet going into Spider may have some pannies, but I'd guess they may be on the small side.  A better bet may be suspending basin fish in Stone, Little Mani., or hte other smaller lake basins.

Will be renting a house on Island Lake in the Manitowish Chain.  Just looking for advice if someone could be so kind to help put a few walleye on our lines and some areas where my 7 year old can catch some panfish.

Any advice appreciated!

FISHING REPORTS:

Another anticipated Opener has come and gone. The weather was great and the fishing was pretty good depending on the body of water. Here's where we seem to be right now from my experiences and reliable reports. The darker bodies of water, like the flowages and some reservation lakes, the water temps are near or at 50 degrees. A lot of the walleyes being caught are all spawned out. The bigger clearer lakes like Minocqua, Big and Little Saint Germain, Big and Little Arbor Vitae, have just lost their ice so their water temps are in the low 40's still. The walleyes there seem to be in the middle of the spawn or just getting at it. The smaller lakes like Mid, Little John and Arrowhead, Lost and Found, the water temp is in the mid to upper 40's and the walleyes are right in the middle of the spawn. Expect these conditions to gradually move forward in the spawn over the next week or two as the water temps continue to rise. If you want walleyes now get to those bodies of water that the temps are the highest on as the males should be feeding after the spawn and they will soon be followed by those bigger females. The larger minnows and baits seem to be working the best.

In the meantime the pike have been pretty active. Small or big, they are coming on stronger each day. Today we actually caught half of them on crawlers, as well as XL Fats and Blacktail chubs. When we used the crawlers a few perch got in on the action, too.

The forecast for fishing is looking really good. The walleyes are about a week away from becoming very active on most lakes. Get out there in the evening, if you can, with a Fire Tiger Rapala, casting those rocky shorelines. Of course many other baits will work as well but the FT Original never goes out of style.

A quick note about the Dewey Catchem and How bait shops this year. We have basically shut down our wholesale bait operations and moved that pricing into the bait shops in Minocqua and Arbor Vitae. For example, you can now get jumbo night crawlers for only $5 for 2 doz and $2.75 for 1 doz. And these are all in Fat n Sassy bedding. Another example is $2 for a scoop of crappie minnows. And these are everyday prices. Plus, if you join our BAIT BUCKS program, which is free, you can save even more. For every $100 you spend over time you get a $10 credit. There are a few exceptions but not many. We invite you to take advantage and sign up today.

Get out there and have some fun folks. It's gonna get better every day now. And if you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong!

Fished the Rendezvous on Saturday. they had blocked off vehicle access to the lake for good reason.  Lots of slush just past the groomed area around the tent. Still lots of ice beneath everything ,only saw 1 UTV without tracks make it out there. Walked to the rock bar area where a crowd gathered later.  No slush where we dug out the spot for the shack.


No hits but saw a couple northern pulled up around us, a couple in the morning hours and 2 late (4ish).

Kids division had 6-7 fish, adults I saw a number of northern on the board and heard a couple called but didn't count.  Great day overall.

Fished Rest late morning and early aft on Sunday, ice was 9-10 inches under the recent rain/snow event.  The hard pack top made for weird squeaking noise against the atv tires as we drove.

Some water under the hard pack where we were but not enough to get boots wet.

2 flags in the noon hour, pulled one 28.5 inch northern out.
