Trade Lake Fishing Reports

14 posts in this topic

Anybody know where I can get a depth map of Trade Lake in burnett county? Or any lake information and fishing reports would be very helpful. I will be fishing it on WI opener and would like to know what to expect.

No problem. I hope to be not far north of there on Yellow Lake for the opener.

A friend used to have a campsite there and said the bass and pike fishing was pretty good. I know there's some excellent panfishing there.

Good luck.

I was going to go there as well Don but after the indians lowered the limit to 1 cuz their too greedy i have changed my mind.. BTW How do they know if your fish came from little yellow big yellow or the river? In that case you could keep 3 and say 2 are from lil yellow and 1 is from big...

WIFisher I think you have the indian part wrong.

Aren't all regulations set per treaty with the LDF Indians based on the safe harvest and how much they spear?

If you want i will post everything Larry Damman emailed to me. The indians set the limits based on what they think is right so that they can spear how many they would like to. There was an indian guy the other night in the pour house in Siren bragging it up about how he speared 68 walleyes all by himself on Big Mckenzie.. Its absolutely ridiculous..

This is for WIFisher regarding limits on Yellow.

my understanding is if you fish Little Yellow and catch your two fish and then stop and fish Big Yellow, you could be ticketed for being over your limit. If you start in Yellow and catch one then head into little yellow you can only catch one more for a total of two.

It doesn't matter where you caught them but where you possess them.

Well I'm pretty sure you can take the alotted limit from each lake until you get the WI limit of 5. So I could go tio Big Yellow take 1. Lil Yellow take 2 and Big Mckenzie to take 2 more but i cant go over 5. This is just the understanding I have..'

Here is what it says on the 2009 Ceded Territories Bag Limit Page:

"The total daily bag limit for walleyes is five. If the lake you are fishing has a bag limit less than five, you can fish other lakes to fill your

daily bag limit. While fishing, you cannot possess fish in excess of that lake's daily bag limit."

I think WIF is right. The only issue would be getting your two fish from Little Yellow to your vehicle. Since there are no ramps on Little Yellow, you would need to take your boat to Yellow to load onto trailer. As soon as you enter Yellow with two fish in the boat you're over the limit.

You would need to park your boat on the Little Yellow side, carry your fish to your vehicle, then drive to Yellow and catch one more. Then you would be perfectly legal...I think. smile

Sounds like a plan huh Ryan?

Sounds about right, you'd need to use the ramp between lakes I guess. Not a problem for me though, our boat can't clear the bridge.

Speaking of the bridge between the lakes ---

My Brother-in-law was telling me there is talk about replacing the bridge with a taller one next year. Has anyone else heard this or have information on it?

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
