Just curious if anyone has had much luck lately. I am planning on going to our cabin next weekend and am going to try my luck on the lake. Also, I am trying to get a good map of the lake (contours, depth, ect.) and also trying to see what type of fish are in the lake...I have looked at the WI DNR HSOforum, but can't seem to find what I am looking for...any help would be appreciated.

Walleyes, perch, small mouth, muskies, and you'll find northerns in Little Round and Richardson's Bay. Walleyes run a little small but there's good numbers there. If you find the perch, they run pretty nice, caught one of the biggest perch I've ever caught out of there. Also good numbers and size on the small mouths.

About 6 or 7 years ago the DNR put some lake trout in there. Not sure if any are still in there or not or if they put any more in it. You could call the DNR office in Hayward and find out though.

Yeah, I know but my wife thinks I've been wrong a time or two but then what does she know. grin I still think they put some lakers in there, just haven't been able to verify it yet.

Well, we had a great weekend despite the cold front and rain that moved in Saturday evening. Friday afternoon I was able to catch a decent northern and got into the best fishing of the weekend Friday evening catching a slew of smallies. Saturday afternoon we went back out and were able to catch a few more bass. Sunday, fighting the weather, we went out one last time and only caught 2 fish. One small smallie, and the next was the fish of the weekend. A 7 pound northern. All fish were released and look forward to catching more when we venture to the cabin more this year.

Thanks again for everyone's help, I was able to pick up a decent map which helped locate the fish we were targeting.

    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming. 
    • Well this has been a tough season so far with this odd weather. Late winter jump into 80+ degrees.  It will be interesting to see what these next 4-5 days of 80's to 90's do to them?   Did find a few Morel's and some nice small tender Pheasant  backs last time out.
    • For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!     
    • Ok, if you don't post back in a few days we know!
    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
