Fish were on!!! We released 6 fish over 20" on Saturday. Worked Brule most of the time. Sunday the fish seemed to be scattered and no big ones. With the big storm on Sunday night we didn't even attempt to wet a line yesterday. Back in three weeks. Fish should be transitioning by then.

Please keep the posts coming.

I'm (finally) heading up this weekend. Would you share the depth and type of structure you found them?

We fished out west Saturday and Sunday. Fishing was decent on Saturday released a 20 and a 25" fish. Lots of 15-16" fish as well. Sunday was better for us. Plenty of fish including a 20, 23& 26". The latter three being released.

We used jigs and minnows and jigs and GULP. We tried spinners but the jigs were more succesful. Found fish anywhere from 11' to 25' of water.

Back up June 11th.

Three of us fished Tuesday, May 20th thru Friday, May 23rd. Good numbers for Walleyes, average size was okay but below normal. We did get a 22", 24" and 26" between us. Went over the portage in to Whitefish on Thursday but only got two Northerns. Talked with two guys that were staying at Vic and Dots towards the South end of W.F.B. and they told us that nobody in camp were getting any Lakers. That's odd at ten days after "Ice out". Back up July 10th.

Made it up for 2 days this weekend. Got out friday afternoon with Wildthing and we didnt have to venture too far. We could see the docks at Buena Vista Resort from where we were fishing. Lot of nice eaters, threw several back in the 19 1/2 to 25 1/2 inch range. 7-12 ft with some sand rock/rubble. didnt seem to matter what color jig, got the fish on minnows and Gulp. Went up to Whitefish bay for lakers and only got one northern on saturday. Seen other guys catch a few lakers trolling. A bunch of us even went out saturday evening after a hearty fish fry and fished off the gov't dock. Got some more nice eaters, lost a few because we werent using a net and threw back a bunch of smaller fish. It was kinda funny when I was out with Wildthing, where we were fishing, we were the only boat there and when we left there was about 8-9 boats and looked like everyone was catching fish. We just stayed in our little area where we caught our fish. People would be cruising on by and make a hard left and come on in. That was the only spot we tried that day. Not sure when I will make it up again but will most likely be a day trip. But 4th of July weekend for sure.

B-dude, way too much information!!!

Hey, it was fun! I didn't fish much over the four days, maybe about 5 hours total, but the fish were indeed on, even if the weather wasn't all the time.

On Sunday afternoon I had my wife, 10 year old and 2 year old back to the same spot that B-dude and I hit on Friday. We had a tripple on at one point, in 20 mph whitecaps trying to fish on the windy side! Great fun!! We released the big one, heard thunder and got back to the boathouse just in time to beat the storm.

The wind seemed to really turn them on, very shallow, 10 feet and less.

My wife caught what may be her PB walleye, a bit over 26 inches but really solid fish. We caught more fish over 18 inches than we did smaller than 18'' That's pretty incredible.

White Gulp minnows did just as well as real minnows, fyi!!

Monday morning was so bad - 39 degrees, rain and whitecaps -- didn't even start up the boat. Kind of a wasted day, but so it goes.

The only bad thing is I won't be back up for another two weeks! Arrrrgggggghhh.

Take care all, be safe...

Spent two weeks at the lake. Talked with Eastwind. Best opening week fishing we have ever had. Went five days before we caught a fish under 16". Trolled bottom bouncers and spinners. Caught all our fish in 12'. Only fished a couple of hours each day. Lots of fish between 23 and 25". Put back a 28" beauty. My buddy's daughter released a 30" fish on Sunday before Memorial Day. Back in two weeks.

Went up Friday and fished through Sunday afternoon. Had fantastics walleye fishing - beautiful 15-18" fish all weekend along with some over 20". I've never thrown back so many "eaters." We caught ours on jigs and grubs/Gulp - didn't buy any live bait and caught fish 8-12'. I think I lost sight of Hanson Bay three times all weekend to boot. Also caught some nice smallies and a nice northern.

Reefs? In May-early June?

Now that's odd. That's nealry a month early. Or maybe they are still there from last winter!!!!

Has anyone tried the Thompson Creek area yet for crappies, and is the water temp. to the point where they might be catchable soon.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
