The inland water opener is just about always one week earlier than Minnesota -- however, as a long-time resident of Wisconsin, I can say "Opening" in Wisconsin is much less an "event" than in Minnesota because there are so many rivers and bodies of water in Wisconsin that are open virtually year round.

Frankly, I enjoy the hoopla of a Minnesota opener much more than I did in Wisconsin.

Actually, my "favorite" is in southeastern Wisconsin only half an hour from Milwaukee. Pewaukee Lake (near Waukesha) just north of I-94 is a terrific musky lake. And, unusual in Wisconsin, it is one on which you can troll. I've trolled it using planer boards on each side with some success. But, it is hard to beat the old tried and true method of throwing bucktails toward weedlines and structure off the islands and the south point at the narrows. If you have not fished Pewaukee, it's worth the trip. Just don't expect a northwoods environment, or a vast expanse of Leech-like water.

Koz --

He didn't ask about northern or northwestern Wisconsin -- he specifically wanted an opinion on eastern Wisconsin water. For that heavily populated part of the state there is but one lake I'll go out of my way to fish for muskies -- that's Pewaukee.

If I'm up north, there are over a dozen lakes between Rhinelander and Spooner that will do very nicely.

Pelican is good, but also heavily fished. For Wis it is a big lake, but small by Minn standards. Out of Rhinelander there's a fun chain of lakes beginning with Moens. It is mostly fished by walleye guys, but holds some nice muskies. Crescent can also produce. One of the best in the Spooner area is Big MacKenzie. 50+ inchers taken every year. Middle MacKenzie is smaller, less pressure, but not as active -- worth a try, however.

Minoqua waters are popular to the extent I don't care to go there. On the Wis-Mich border you can often do very well on Lac Vieux Desert.

    • Wow, I didn’t realize the lake was under that intense of pressure. I suppose I will try elsewhere if most of the trout have been taken out. Thanks for the advice! 
    • ...LOL, I did it again on Sunday as well. I used 21-40 ct shrimp and grilled up some chicken breast ahead of time that were added before the pan went on the grill.... pretty spot on!
    • Thanks for coming back with a review. They look like they should work well but I'm wondering if they allow slack in the line at the trip and let the fish off the hook?  I use dipsy's and a few other divers for deep trolling Walleye's in late summer.  Fun stuff when their out there. 🙂
    • All the little Trout ponds around the cities get hit like this on opener. More or less a "Put and take" fishery.  
    • Wow that is some high density fishing pressure!!!
    • This is a couple years old but I happened to stumble on it again today and I’m not really a big fan of the slide divers myself after giving them a shot. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but they seem more of a hassle than just the plain old, but effective, Dipsy diver     
    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
