I'm the local that Tukta said doesn't know how to fish. What a joke...

Glad everything worked out Ldob. I was hoping to get there Saturday or Sunday but that didn't happen. Glad someone capitalized!

Was out with the gf today. We trolled, jigged structure, and floated some slip bobbers. Very productive day! Got 28, 26 1/2, 26, 24, 3 keepers, and some shorts. Also got a bunch of white bass, only 4 cats, and a few goats.

1.9 mph with flickers. 45-70 feet back over 11-15 fow. Chrome rainbow trout, purple fire tiger, and green did the best. Jigging we were using 1/4 ounce jigs and green/chartreuse ring worms with Baitmate. Jigging was done along the channel breaks in 12 to 22 fow anywhere near structure.

All fish were released today. Tight lines!

Report from Friday: Trolled 4 or 5 different areas around lake. South was thick green west of buoy line, farther east you went water cleaned up a little. Lots of nats putting through the green. My best was north end 3-7 f.o.w.. Trolling 5 flickers in purple just like Tufka was talking about. Best walleye was 25" caught on tot trolled basically in prop wash. Surprisingly caught a couple legals and some fat cats pulling lures flatline 20-30' back. A little tip I learned from Mr. tipping. Two slots, three legals, cats, whites, and goats. I would GUESS, 30 to 40 fish total count. Fun day for me and momma. Peace til next time...Dobber Big Smile Cool Cool Big Smile P.s. Thanks for tip 007. Spots and cranks worked good Smile Smile Smile

When I was down in the Southwest corner of the lake last friday it was loaded with algae. The southwest corner of the lake was pretty thick with it and that was a week ago.

**Muskie Fishing**

I'm relatively new to muskie and have been out on the Pete a half dozen times in my new small boat. The majority of my time has been spent in the chester creek area. I've had 2 follows, but no hits. I'm not looking for anybodys secret spot, but just a head nod if I'm fishing an area where muskie frequent this time of year? Or are the shallows dead mid summer?

Any help or guidance is appreciated. That 3 oz cowgirl kicked my @$$ today lol

There wasn't any algae on Saturday and Sunday. That could have changed but there has been a lot of rain and cool water temps and breezy conditions.

Petenwell does have a bit of an up north feel. The entire area is mostly sandy ground with pines and scrub oaks. There are just small towns around it with a pub or two.

Petenwell has Walleye (kind of a down year, but lots of slot fish), big crappies, big muskies and there are some smallies. There are tons, and I mean tons of channel cats, you can't do anything without catching them, and just as many white bass.

I will say this though, it's not the easiest system in the world to fish. It can humble the best anglers. Look at the MWC last weekend, 13 lbs for two days with some of the best anglers in the state competing (partially due to the slot limit). You can always catch something on this system, it just may not always be a ton of eater eyes.

Sorry, no report. But I have a few questions about the area. Please PM me if you have answers to share.

Long story short, my wife and I are looking to buy a cabin getaway. We live around Milwaukee now and are looking for a smaller cabin or house in the woods close to water, not on the water. I see a lot of nice places that fit our price range around Petenwell and Arrowhead lake.

I don't know the area, though. Is there an "up north" feeling in the area? I'm looking for a place in the middle of the woods with privacy. Fishing wise, I'd like walleye, but also love musky, crappie and bass. What does Petenwell, Castle Rock and Arrowhead have to offer?

Right now I'm looking more around Eagle River than Petenwell, but I'm wondering if the area around Petenwell would have the same kind of feel, yet be 2 hours closer to our primary residence.

Thank you in advance.

I have fished at night many times on Petenwell. Usually cause whoever I was bringing wanted to do so. Only luck I ever had was in front of cemetery east of Pete park using lighted slip bobbers fishing for crappies. And that was limited. Do like 007 says and either hit the bars or go to one of the smaller lakes. Peace, Lar Big Smile Cool Big Smile
