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...

    • Results are out!!    Did not pull a tag this year. Maybe a surplus tag in my future...
    • American Redstart was back and catching bugs by the hostas !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (those ! are for you smurf ) He let me get pretty close. 
    • Congrats on MN and WI   It's been a great spring and the birds just seem to be getting fired up even more now.
    • could be interesting for ya!!!!!!!
    • I think I am done for the year.  Wisconsin was a success for me these past few days, but not so much for the rookies I took with.    I called in a nice 24lb bird with 1" sharp spurs and 10" beard on Friday.  The weather really shut them down after that.  Finally Sunday morning in the rain showers they came out and put on a show for four hours, but the big tom just would not come in close enough for a shot.  Hens dragged him by me one time with a few second opportunity to decide if I should try to stretch the range of my gun, but I held off thinking they would come a few steps further...  They did not...  He had spurs easily over 1", never gobbled, just strutted and drummed around the field all morning.        
    • Very nice birds!  
    • I'm going to hit it hard looking this week. I promised batter fried Morels for Memorial day lunch with the smoked pulled pork I made. 😬  
    • No luck with morels near La Crosse these past few days.  Found some ramps and lots of pheasant back / Dryad saddle.  
    • We finished up the seasons with 3 great birds. All 3 had 1 1/4 spurs 11 inch beards and one with 11.5. Two birds weighing in at 23 lbs and the other 22. This year we had gobbling like in the past . These last 5 years has been very minimal gobbling if none at all some years. This year was similar to when we started hunting these farms. The high predator population is why i think they do not gobble as much. Even this spring had a yote mess up a bird walking right in to me he was in killing distance but I was liking the show so let him keep coming my error. Yote came running in and chased him off :(. But we did end up shooting this bird Friday morning. So he only was saved once.   See what happens this weekend. I'm supposed to take a buddy out hunting in MN but if that falls through maybe make one more run to WI.
