They've planted lots of muskies in there over the years, it should be good. There is a healthy population of bass though so if I were you, I'd be fishing for both.

You can check out the record of what's been planted in there over the years here:

I've never fished it but according to my old hotspots WI muskie book mid-lake structures are abundant and the place to be for summer muskies. Sounds like fairly clear water with weeds down to around 12 feet. Might be a good night bite lake. Again though, I've never been on it and that book is not current by any stretch. Pretty grim reports on this topic in the musky/pike forum. Good luck if you go and be sure to post a report!

just got back an hour ago. muskie fishing sucked, walleye fishing was a bust, but bass fishing was non-stop action! the best way we found was to float a fathead minnow 2 feet under the surface in the lily pads. this also gave us quite a few big rock bass as well
