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!

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
