Lake Wapogasset

7 posts in this topic

Got an invite to this lake for a weekend in Mid Sept. What kind of fishing does this lake have to offer ? Just wondering if its worth the cost of the extra gas money and the non resident license to haul my boat from Alexandria to fish out there or if I should just plan on watching football and enjoying the company.

It is a deep, clear, weedy bass/panfish style lake. The lake also had a fair population of muskies. The couple times I have fished for walleyes I have done really well. But it is a popular bass lake for good reason.

Was out last night with 3 of us in the boat, which maybe should have been called Noah's Ark. We boated 2 muskie, 2 northern, 2 walleye, 2 white bass, and about a dozen largemouth in about 4 hours. Muskie were both small (2 year olds) and so were the pike. Walleyes went 17.5" and 23". Most bass were small. I have no idea what constitutes a big white bass but ours looked decent sized.

This is a good lake. Bear Trap which is connected is also good. As those above stated it is a great multi species fishery. Mid Sept. all fish should be hitting good at that time. I am a crappie, walleye guy and have seldom been dissapointed here.

Thanks for the info guys.

I love to catch and release bass and I've never caught a muskie of any decent size so it sounds like fun.

Is there a slot limit on the walleyes ?

The state of Wisconsin has a statewide 15 inch minum on walleyes. I don't believe Wapo has any other special regulations for walleyes.

It is still a 15" minimum, but it is in the ceded territory so it has a daily bag limit of 2. Otherwise the only other special reg that applies is the county-wide 40" minimum on muskies.

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...
