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.

Thanks I'll be sure to let you know if I do find a better one. I'll let you know how/where we did after we get back too.

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...

    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.
