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)

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
