Western Wisconsin Musky??

7 posts in this topic

Looking to take a quick trip across the border. Yellow is an option but are there any other productive waters just across the border?

Bone Deer and the Apple River Flowage all have very good numbers. Bone is probably the easiest to fish of those. Don't forget trolling as a technique, as you can fish up to 3 lines.

The musky fishing on Yellow has steadily gotten worse over the past 12 years or so. Not surprisingly, this also coincides with when they cut the stocking in half. There's still fish to be had. But it's much tougher than it used to be.

Irishwalleye,

Bone, Deer, Wapogasset, Black Brook Flowage, Apple River Flowage, all within 30 minutes of one another. (POLK Cty.)

Bone/Deer are a zoo on weekends.

Cedar Lake (St. CROIX Cty.) near Star Prairie. Will throw a 50" plus from time to time. Gets green early.

(Big)Sand Lake (BARRON Cty.)4 miles west of Cumberland off of Hwy. 48. (Clear water lake)

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
