beers is a good all around lake for about anything, including muskys, you can use your boat there. bass lake you can catch trout, either fish from shore or rent a boat from the park, corn n crawlers work good. good luck!

Fished Beers last week. Talked to the ladies at the enterance to the park. They said there have been a few follows but very few hook ups lately. I got a small muskie and two decent largemouth bass. The only other muskie I saw came up to check out a loon slapping the water. Kind of cool. Strangely, not one northern. you can throw all the usual muskie baits but I prefer pitching a regular old white spinnerbait up to the shore. You have a chance for bass, northerns and muskies all at once. As for Bass lake. If you rent a boat, try a tiny crayfish crankbait from Rebel. A friend let me in on this and it works great. Just throw it behind the boat and row around.

I like a nightcrawler and a small marshmellow for the trout.

Personally, I would opt for the marshmallow, and leave the nightcrawler for the trout.

Are you guys serious? Marshmellows?? That means I need to get trout stamps then.

How do you fish for trout? I've never fished for trouts before.

best bet is using a bobber, 4lb line, gold #12 salmon egg hook, splitshot. the tough part is how deep.

Hey I would try this for the trout. It always seems to work for me.. You use small raps (floating, or countdowns) SMALL ones..and put that smelly powerbait scent designed for trout.. And I've also used marshmellows and they do work!!

hi all-
i think the muskies are starting to bite if you catch them on the right day (weather dependent). my brother caught a small one and saw 5 others on the morning of the 18th. another cold front was about to push through if i'm not mistaken. that always makes it better.

hey guys-
the muskies are biting! i have not fished beers yet this year but i think they should be way up in the shallow/thick cabbage. the water temp is about 64 so i would throw a high riding bucktail or a jerkbait on those weed tops. i was out on battle the night of the 22nd. 3 fish bit and i landed a 34" and a 49". i would try to plan an outing before/during the cold front. the winded areas will be harder to fish but will hold active/hungry fish.
take care and good luck.

Fished Beers last weekend (8/21) and didn't even see a fish...nothing...tried everything we could think of in all sorts of cover - or lack of cover - and saw nothing. Will try it again in about a week.

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!
    • Mlaker3
      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?
