Almost all of my posts since opening day have been reported on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage Board. Including an opening day 64 pound Sturgeon caught on 6 lb line, took 66 minutes and on video. Awesome reading and seeing the pic.

These 3 guys are an awesome team, lots of fish caught and lots of fun for the day. All fish were from Vilas.

All Walleye were caught on minnows and around 12 ft deep. Still close to some spawning areas. All of our fish were hard hitting and aggressive. No river fish, all lake fish, no big ones but lots of action and good eating for the guest.

Heading back to the Flowage tomorrow. Several of my posts have been on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage board.

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

God Bless

This family is continuing to support Iron County WI. by staying there, eating out, gasoline, shopping, the Grocery Store and by making reservations for next year.

This father and son did a great job on the big Crappie. There vacation was a great time for fishing. A pic of some of the fish caught is below. The small ones are 10 1/2 in.. All fish were caught on minnows and casting, no bobbers today. The brush was best for us, next to the channel edge. Other people are producing by the stumps in some shallow bays, also the south west end of the Flowage and other locations.

All fish were around 5 to 12 ft deep (where we were fishing.) Water temps are rising rapidly 59 degrees today and again, where we were fishing. With the warm weather forecast for tomorrow and Friday the water temps should continue to rise rapidly, despite some rain forecast. Around 10 AM this morning, 3 others of the group and I were by the Dam and caught several small Walleye. We left and I picked up this father and son of there group and they caught the beautiful Crappie below.

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

“Our fish” again, came from the large East bay of the Flowage. A few other boats were again there producing as well. Again, a small jig and minnow were the best option, “for us”.

Shallow fish again today from 3 to 9 ft were producing on the T.F.F. “where we were fishing”.

"Our fish" came from the large East bay of the Flowage. A few other boats were there producing as well. Again, a small jig and minnow were the best option, "for us". No bobbers today. The center bar produced a few fish but we focused on the shore line mostly. We did catch a couple bonus Pike which were good size.

Shallow fish today from 3 to 9 ft were producing on the T.F.F. "where we were fishing". Again, no need to go on and on, the fishermen we saw were also catching Walleye.

This Grandfather and Grandson are an awesome team. They catch Walleye over several states as well as Big Perch and other specie. Good Job IKE!

Yesterday we worked from 7 to 16 ft to produce our Walleye. A jig and minnow produced well. A slow presentation was very important to get the strike. Some of our Walleye were still milking, Same on Trout and a few other lakes. Walleye are being reported as good all over the north in Vilas County WI..

Color of the jig head does make a difference on certain lakes and no difference on other lakes. During the past cold front smaller minnows worked better “for us”. The river Walleye have been producing since opening day.

The warm spell begins tomorrow and will continue thru Thursday, as currently forecast. This will increase the Walleye bite as well as the Crappie, which have been doing well on certain lakes for the past week.

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

Walleye Today from the T.F.F.

This family is a special unit, awesome job guys. Current is continuing to be “our” best producer for Walleye on the T.F.F. and will be for several days to come. Yes, other people are catching Walleye in other locations. Our fish are coming on bobbers, split shot and a hook. A small jig also works well. Color of the jig can make a difference in the number of strikes we receive and there are times when color makes no difference.

All fish are coming from a variety of depths from 4 to 22 ft. No need to go on and on, most people are doing well on the T.F.F..

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

Walleye Today from the T.F.F.

This father and son team work very well together. They enjoy and cherish each other and family. These 2 guys worked very hard and the results speak for themselves as shown below. Lots of questions and correct answers provided there fish. No Jumbo fish were caught today but, a great package was received in a limit of Walleye. I even caught 2 for dinner tonight.

Current is continuing to be "our” best producer for Walleye on the T.F.F.. Reports of Walleye being caught in other locations on the T.F.F. are reported daily with other people on other fishing web sites. Our fish are currently coming from a wide variety of depths, from 4 to 22 ft on the T.F.F..

The cold front of yesterday and thru tonight has slowed our bite but, we also slowed down our presentation, we missed several strikes today but still caught our limit of Walleye. Smaller everything was the answer, "for us". All fish came on minnows. We downsized on all equipment and hardware. Bobber's also work well.

Certain locations produce a few fish and then we move. Sitting in one spot can and does work but, we like to find and offer our presentation to multiple groups of fish.

Also, "we never approach" and fish close to other boats, I respect that, "they were there first".

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

1/2 day

More great people enjoying the Great North Woods in Iron County Wisconsin. Another beautiful sunny morning.

This Gal is a great Angler, she not only smiles all the time, polite, laughs a lot but, she is very knowledgeable about our area and above all she loves fishing, Kayaking, Canoeing, and uses a Row Boat. She sees a lot and catches a lot of fish.

She is srtictly a catch and release Angler so, no stringer pics today. Although a couple of quality fish are posted below. Many fish were caught before the cold front.

All fish on minnows and caught from 4 to 22 ft. Current area's are best (for us) although, some spawning shoreline areas are producing as well, besides the current. “Hold on” as the clouds have rolled in and the wind is from the north west and the temps are rapidly dropping. We are forecast for rain starting now and some tomorrow.

The updated forecast is for this Friday to have a high temp of 54 with AM showers, hopefully that will change.

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.

Crappie shallow, in warm water. Yesterday. 5-7-18

Fishing a small tributary lake connected to a larger lake is where these fish came from. In fact they were right on the shoreline in 1 – 1/2 ft to 3 ft of water and the water temp was 62 degrees. Yes, there are several lakes like this right now producing shallow Crappie even though some bigger lakes are still ice covered.

This small 100 acre lake in particular has water running thru both ends of the lake and has a maximum depth of 18 ft. We actually left the small lake and went back into the larger lake to clean a few fish due to the fact the small lake had no wind due to its size and it was just to hot and we were over dressed.

Yesterday was a sunny warm day as the last 2 weeks have been but, that is over. Our fish all came on minnows, light hooks and light line. The clouds have rolled in and the wind is from the north west and the temps are rapidly dropping. We are forecast for rain from now and tomorrow.

Friday’s high temp that is as of now forecast, is to be 54, as now forecast.

More great people enjoying the Great North Woods of Iron County Wisconsin. Besides there limit of Walleye caught in and out of the river channels on minnows, (I kept 2 for dinner, that I caught) we enjoyed a bonus catch of this magnificent Sturgeon. A 1 hour and 6 minute video was taken. Jeff Robel watched the first few minutes and then left in his boat.

We enjoyed a total of 4 tremendous leaps out of the water and had to chase the fish with the trolling motor over and over again. Under the boat, around the boat, down to the bottom, then 4 individual 100 ft runs away from the boat, out of the channel, back into the channel edge we were fishing and finally into the boat.

This was an exhausting experience for Dave as he kept saying to all of us in the boat, this is just like catching Tarpon when you and I go to Key West Florida for the past 11 years except, this time we did it on, "6 lb line and a 1/8th oz jig head". This Sturgeon was eventually landed and a quick photo was taken and released, witnessed by another boat watching, a black and silver Lund.

Absolutely an Awesome job Dave. My Hat goes off to you, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this incredible and valiant effort.

Water temps are rising quickly with the bright sunny sky's of the last few days. Many reports of quality catches have been reported all over the north. Even warmer temps are forecast for Monday and Tuesday and then a cool front is moving in.

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk.

Day 1. (yesterday)

Great clients who enjoy great fishing. Polite, laughing, joking all day long, wanting to learn and having fun. These guys were awesome as they caught and released many fish and kept a few for the frying pan.

All our fish were spawned out. Some were milking but those were the small males. Lots of fish caught and released. The current areas produced the best. A standard jig and minnow was the best and probably will be for daytime fishing for the next few weeks. Several Crappie were also caught. All fish on minnows.

Water temps are rising quickly with the bright sunny sky's of the last few days. Many reports of quality catches have been reported all over the north. Even warmer temps are forecast for Monday and Tuesday and then a cool front is moving in.

I also will be reporting on other county boards this spring as we follow the bite.

As always, stay positive, think clearly and do not listen to negative talk.
