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.

Day 2.

No changes today, the pattern is staying the same as "our " fish came from the same area. I kept 2 for myself as I did yesterday.


This couple again enjoyed there morning producing a good Walleye limit from the T.F.F..

As told yesterday, this husband and wife travel all over Canada, the U.S. and other locations enjoying exotic vacations and this week is no different. We will be fishing the beautiful T.F.F..

Walleye Today from the T.F.F.

“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”.


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

"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.

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

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.

Father and son once again enjoying the Great North Woods in Iron County Wisconsin.

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.

God Bless
