mm, I would like to fish that spot again, but I moved back to my home town last summer. It would be nice if someone else could make use of it. It's a great spot to get away from the crowds and room to roam, and fish that's always a +.

I always fished the rim of the deep water, under 30' and 200 yards north of the point. You can see the point on the map and I never fished that, but always thought that would be the best area. The ice get's thinner as you get to the point, more current there. I wouldn't think this year with as much ice we have there'd be any problem with ice. I'm fishing on 18" of ice on the mississippi right now with current.

Sinker has been thinking about giving it a try, maybe you could team up with him. Definitly easier with two with the walk involved. The walleye I caught there were suspended between 12'-15'. Saw them on the vex when I was fishing 28' and reeled up to them. Good Luck.

Fishing is Life.

I think I got a handle on the depths out there. The point is just north (or upstream) of Trout Brook right? I was fishing North (or upstream) of the point maybe 50 yards or so. I was in 14' of water but I had to have been really close to the drop because I was maybe 200 yards or so from Wisc. side.

Just upstream from where I was there was an ice heave that went all the way across the river. And towards the Wisc. side I guess there was open water back in early January near this ice heave. That must have been the deeper water. Interesting area. I really would like to check it out. I only saw 2 snowmobilers when I was out there and they were hugging the Wisc shoreline. Thanks for the info sir.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
