thanks camo, I kinda figured there was something like that but wasn't sure. So is it posted at the boat landings every year? Otherwise how would a person know?

The bag limit for Walleye on the flowage is not specifically listed in the regulations because it is in the ceeded territory, and the bad limit is based on the amount of fish that are speared in the spring, so it could change every year, however every year I have ever gone up there it has been 3 fish. I learned this the hard way one year when I thought that it was 5 because there was no special reg. listed. That one cost me $270.

Guided out on the Chip last night out of Treelands resort. The action was short but good. I got a 43 1/2 on a Rabid Squirrel tail, and on the exact same spot, client had a giant up on a Chopper, I would say a 50 inch class fish, and then when we went back on the fish, about 10 yards from where we saw the fish, she had a fish that I would say was 46-48 inches up on the same chopper, but none of them ate the baits, just swatted at the bait, and the followed to the boat. The fish were on wind blown gravel bars, it was raining and blowing pretty good.

Good luck, Tanner Wildes

hi guys, i am coming up the first weekend in oct. and this will be my first fall trip up there. i realize the fishing will be different than the last week in june when i usually come up and was just looking for a little advice on some different tendencies of the fish in the fall. plan on doing mostly musky fishing but would like to get a couple walleye and crappie for a fish fry while i am there. Also does that weekend possably look like it may be the water turnover time? any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks and good luck to all.

I just got home from a week up and it wasn't too bad. The weather for a family trip kind wasn't great, but it made for some pretty good musky action for the limited amount of time I fished for them. We found crappies around the dead falls with no real big ones though, I raised three muskies and caught a 41 1/2" on topwater in between doing the family thing and visiting the area with the wife and kid. I sure wish I was still there and not at home Angry

Deano, Sorry I never got back to you. Between the weather and cost of fuel to get there an for the boat I just couldn't afford a guide this time around. Maybe next time?

Just got back from an awesome week (8/30 - 9/6) of fishing on the big chip, caught lots of large bluegills and crappies on 1" black twister tails around the bogs in milwaukee bay and had lots of fun catching LM bass and northerns on white spinner baits on tyner lake and up in crane lake, seems like any shoreline that had trees down out into the water or lilly pads held fish. Good luck! Smile

A lot of the flowage is too shallow to stratify and so does not 'turn over'. However, the deeper sections will surely have turned over well before your October trip.

Thinking of making a trip there sometime in October... probably either around the 17-20 of October or around Halloween. Don't want to get stuck in the turnover though... When does the turnover generally take place in the Big Chip and what are your predictions for this year? It has been a very cool year so I'm thinking it may be early this year. Thanks for the help!

Dale, I'm on my way up this evening and staying in the Deerfoot/ motel with the wife and son(4 yr) and I like it there. It's not expensive and not in a bad location either. I hope the fish make the trip fun? Going to try for muskies and crappies, we'll see?

Deano, I think I have your number from a PM? If you see this pm me with it please, I was going to see if maybe we can hook up?

Augie

Needing some help. Kids are away to school and the wife wants to come with me to fish the flowage. Going to be up there September 19,20,21. Can anyone help with recommendations on a motel on the Flowage? (The wife doesn't want to cook,me neither!!) I was thinking between Deerfoot Lodge/Motel or Big Musky Resort. Can anyone help? Thanks a bunch.
