If you are talking about the Deer Lake just north of Rapids, this is one of my favorites!!! This lake has some HUGE fish. Trolling Cisco Kids seems to do pretty well certain time of the year. Jakes and Salmo pikes work as well. My favorite presentation would have to be soft plastics though, BullDawgs, Eels. Good luck to Ya !!

Sounds like you're a top water fan! Me too, but I like the night bight top water on Deer. Full moon and calm. I have had too much luck in the other presentations to switch, but if you tell me different I will change my habits. I guess it's a confidence thing.

The only muskies I've ever caught have been on Moose, across from Deer, while walleye fishing. For some reason, my muskie fishing equipment is cursed! grin.gif I usually see more fish on Moose, than on Deer.

Hey Eric, good to see ya' here at FM! Did my dad fill you in on my WI turkey hunt? I guess I need to practice a little more? grin.gif

It wasn't too tough to figue out when you post North Star Guide Service after your name, Mr. Koenig...

By the way, how's the muskie fishing on North Star? That's not much farther than Deer, is it?

Muskie fishing on North Star has been great, glad to see you still have a sence of humor! I still think that Deer is a phenominal lake though. Will I still get those phone calls from ya in the summer to see where the Muskies are?

I did talk to your Dad and yes it sounds like practice may not hurt! Did I hear the right number of misses that occured? It's still a blast though! I had one at 45 yards but the wind was rocking around 35 - 45 mph. A shot gun would have been nice but as you know the string is the only way to go!

I'll just stop by the resort to ask you, since I'll be spending a lot of time on North Star this year.

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.

      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?
