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.

    • 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.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture.
