Hi all,

I overheard some rumblings about Mud Hen Lake between Siren and Grantsburg, but it doesn't look like much to talk about. Does anybody know anything about it?? Are there any walleyes? The old DNR map info says panfish, Northerns and LM Bass, but that describes 98% of all lakes in WI. Any info would be appreciated.

Good Luck,

------------------

I have had very good success fishing bass in the lake. lots of good weedline structure and adjacent flats. south shore is pretty desolate from what i remember so stay away from that for now. north and ne side are pretty decent. not sure about walleyes.

fish on -
Mud Hen is an excellent bass lake, for numbers and size. Previous posters have given good locations. Don't believe there's any walleyes. Ton's of snakes with a few of decent size
Fun lake to fish for bass

That's all the lake contains as far as game fish populations. There's some big carp in there too. I haven't fished the lake in many years but the last time I did it was loaded with small pike. The bass and pan fishing can be good.

Camp Ojibway! On Lake Mud Hen, Home of Johnny Stempka
Life is Great there, higher than the trees
Stronger than the cesspool blowing in the breeze!

County Road take me home to the place where I belong, CAMP OJIBWAY! on Lake Mud hen, take me home country road.

It's been a long time since I was a camper or counselor fishing or taking the kids fishing. I think Hope Pres sold the property after the camp was pretty much destroyed in the tornado 2 or 3 years ago.

In the late 80' early 90's it was a good bass, pike, and sunfish lake. Just watch out for the weedpeople and the huge leaches that live under the docks.

as stated its a very good bass lake.. I was just there a couple weekends ago...

If you get a chance down on the end oppisit the boat landing look up in a tree... there is a pontoon boat all bent up and stuck up a tree about 30 feet in the air. Its a site to be seen. I assume its from the tornado that hit threw siren?

Does anyone ever ice fish Mud Hen Lake? I am going to be going up there for an ice fishing tournament and have never fished that area. Any help would be great. Thanks

Dan, it's through a buddy of mine. A friend of mine's boss, his dad or someone he knows owns a company and it's through there. It might be a company thing but I am not really sure. I don't know any details I just know I was invited by my friend. You said panfish, so is there sunnies and crappies? What other lakes up in that area are good to fish? We are probably going to fish another lake as long as were in the area. We are staying at my mom's cabin on the Yellow River.

pick a lake, any lake. all of the lakes in this area are pretty much panfish/bass/pike lakes. a few are good walleye and musky too (yellow, devils, mckenzie)

the clam flowage is north of siren/grantsburg, and southwest of webster. ever hear of the bar "haps landing"? if you take county "f" north of grantsburg, you'll cross over it, probably 15 miles north of town. good fishing there, too.

nice tag at the end fischer.


try the northwestern shore, that will warm the earliest, plus good area for spawning. Also the north shore.

No tokens needed either.

Fish are roaming still or starting to move up based on action from yesterday. THinking this weekend might be better. Anyone have tips, general locations, for where these stagers might be congregating more on this lake? Thanks for any help!

Did OK this weekend. Got some small ones on Rapalas and the bigger ones came on plastics at the first break. They have not moved to the shallows yet. Maybe next weekend.

I was surpried by the lack of boats in comparison to other years.

I need a clue guys.

My in-laws have a cabin on Mud Hen Lake by Siren and I spend every other weekend up there during the summer. My in-laws aren't big fisherman-at all-but they are gaining interest. So the pressure is on me to put them on fish and keep them interested. One challenge I face is not owning my own "motor boat." I usually fish from a canoe when I am up there or occassionally a paddle boat. The in-laws own a speedboat but I don't feel comfortable taking it out myself. So in the summer I am at the mercy of the wind and more often than not fish the northern shore that they live on. I have had no problem catching bass and I've even found some decent sunfish. But I've yet to catch crappies. The neighbor will go out and catch a few but I've yet to figure out his patterns.

This winter I have been bitten BAD by the ice fishing bug and have fully outfitted myself. In the winter I am not limited by the wind/lack of boat and can get anywhere on the lake I am determined enough to drag my sled to. I put in ~10 hours over the last 2 days and hand drilled 20-30 holes. Fished 3 different parts of the lake; the northern shoreline in a couple places from 10-30 fow, and on the western dropoff of the big sunken island from 10-25 fow. caught nothing but puny perch.

Would you guys have ANY recommendations on where to look for crappies-summer or winter? or where I might look for sunnies this winter? Depths to look at? Baits to try? I would really appreciate any advice you might be willing to offer!

I did see some guys fishing the 10' "hole" northeast of the sunken island but I assumed these guys might be chasing flags and pike based on how shallow it is over there. Am I wrong?

I would be happy to share my secrets and or beer with anyone willing to point me in the right direction. I'm not a guy that's going to ice all your fish either-I'll keep a meals worth from time to time but usually catch n release.

I've never fished the lake myself but a friend lives on it. He claims that early spring is the only time anyone really catches those crappies. They should be along the shoreline then.

Sorry, that's all I know.

    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
