Minocqua Area Fishing Report

It will be touch and go for a while on the ice fishing. As in, “touch” the ice with your chisel, if it cracks “GO”! Get off of there

Daytime temps in the low 30’s with night time temps in the mid 20’s to upper teens by next week will mean ice making conditions will be tenuous at best. Where ice is available (2-3”), fishing good. Open water dominates the lakes, but getting to the open water due to ice in launches limits availability.

Musky: Good – Season open through Thurs, November 30th. For the few still venturing out, action good for November. Suckers helped a few stalwarts to some 46”ers this week. Gliders such as Smutly Dogs and Mantas have been effective.

Walleye: Good – Where safe ice, fish as shallow as 3-7’ on tip-ups.

Yellow Perch: Good – Same locales as Walleyes, nice perch on Crappie minnows to medium fatheads.

Deer activity very good, nice bucks including recent 9 and 11 pointers arrowed past couple days. Gun deer opener looks better than last year.
