I'm going up to Marrinette county to visit my mother-in-law and my wife and I are looking for some advice on lakes to fish and bait shops to go to. Athelstane, I believe, is where we will be staying. Any advice will more than appreciated.

try the two big impoundments of the Peshtigo River (High Falls and Caldron?). Excellent multi-species waters... There's another nice lake a bit north-east of Crivitz - Lake Noquebay. Personally, I think High Falls and Caldron Falls (as well as the rest of the flowage) is your best bet. It's considered a Class A musky water...

Have you been to any of these lakes? Do you know of a really good forum for wisconsin....besides this one? This is a great forum for Minnesota and not bad for other states but surely Wisconsin has a really good forum too. I have been trying to research these three lakes and a couple more smaller lakes in that area. Thanks for your help.

don't know if the moderator will allow this but google 'HotSpotOutdoors'. Not the best info but you'll find some tidbits of info on these lakes. I don't know of any other site for that area. If you find one, let me know.

As for fishing those myself - only minimally. Not enough to give out any pointers.

sounds good... my dad has a bunch of land up in that neck of the woods but I've only gotten the boat out there a few times. My sister has a cabin on a lake outside of Lakewood that has some nice panfish, bass, northerns, and a few walleye in it. Doesn't get much pressure as it's pretty much a private lake. Was going to try to get up there for some ice time this winter but doesn't appear it will happen...

For High Falls, I think the word is that Landing 10 is the spot to be...

    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
    • So how was everyone’s grouse season this year?    It was tough getting out this year between work and the lousy, cool, wet fall but I did get some birds 
    • So eyeguy musta had it coming..lol. but he totally redeemed himself to become a mod himself!!  😉
