Holcombe Flowage Wisconsin

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever fished the Holcombe Flowage for musky? there is zero info on this site in the Wisconsin section, and perusing the internet there is nothing like this HSOforum for Wisconsin fishing. Any info you may have to share is appreciated.

I fished it once last year (only time I've ever been there), and didn't see a single muskie (well, possibly one, it was smallish and I think it was a pike, but it could have been a muskie) so I'm not much help. Caught a few pike and even a few eyes, as well as had a very nice smallmouth on (might have gone 20" but a nice leap and she was free). The other muskie guys were way up in the northeast by the Jump River, maybe they were having better luck than I was. All of my "other" fish were caught on the weedline. Try some shallow cranks and jerkbaits along weed edges, as well as bucktails and topwaters over the weeds, that's what I'd try if I went back. Cooter probably has more info, he's from that area.

One more thing, be on the lookout for sturgeon. It's fun to watch them jump for absolutely no reason, just don't mistake them for a skis (I've heard others make that mistake, as different as the fish are).

Fished it last night - sturgeon indeed are jumping! We had six guys out and landed a 38.5, 43.5, and a 46. Vahn pretty much summed it up - there are a ton of good places on Holcombe. Standard issue bucktails, cranks, jerk-baits, topwaters all catch fish. Not really any secrets - fish 'fishy' looking structure. Very pretty fish out of there, lots have a beautiful green hue to them.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
