Tiger Cat Flowage

5 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone,

My family is renting a place on the the south end of Tiger Cat Flowage at the end of July and I was wondering if anyone out there has fished it much. I don't know if you can reach all the lakes via boat but looking at mapquest it seems there are some channels that link them up? We're looking for some walleye for dinners and bass and muskie for fun. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

You can get to all of them with a smaller boat, the biggest problem would be getting through the culvert to Burns Lake but I've done it. The channel to Placid is a little shallow too but passable. Lots of bluegills but they run kind of small, same with muskies. Decent largemouths but I don't think they've planted any walleyes in recent years so they might be hard to come by. Fun set of lakes to boat on.

I've fished the next lakes down much of life, Callahan and Mud. From everyone I've talked to, they are nearly identical fisheries. Shallow with lots of weeds, part of the Chief River system, lots of medium sized bass and lots of small muskies. Walleyes are super rare. There is no problem with eating a 14" bass in my book though.

Lure tip: perch colored Bass'O'Reno SLAYS the bass up there

Thanks for the info guys. Our trip was good and the above:

"lots of medium sized bass and lots of small muskies"

is pretty accurate. We had fun catching the bass which were plentiful and got mixed up with a few muskies, most of which were encountered as we reeled in sunfish from the dock!

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
