fishing in wisconsin

Recommended Posts

OK, so I'm an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly and didn't pay attention to the seasons and didn't realize that the northern season had closed until I questioned the gas station attendant becuase they didn't have any big shiners left.

So now me(the one-who-thinks-I-am-silly) wants to find a good northern lake in WIS close to the metro for the late ice. Does anybody have any suggestions?

thanks

Try Lake Woppogasset in Amery. I know they have a decent Muskie Population...don't know anything about the Northern. Try the WI DNR Site for Lake info. It is a pretty dang good fisherie for pan fish as well.

Good luck,

WEJ

Fishlip, I guess it depends on what size you're looking for and what your idea of "close" is.Bass Lake in St. Croix county near Somerset is close but there are alot of small ones in there.If you want size,there are some dandies taken every year out of Upper and Lower Clam lakes east of Siren on Highway 70.If you go,stop in at Big Mike's bait shop for info.It's on Highway 70,south side of the road at the narrows between the two lakes.Good Luck.

Big Round near Luck, WI is good. Wappogasset (never sure if I spell that right!), Balsam - lots in that area.

Clam Lake, Clam lake, Clam Lake... pretty much the best Northern fishing I've ever had has been there. It produces better early season then late, but usually you can get pike all season long. Good Luck.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
