Minocqua Area and Northern Wisconsin

Welcome to the Minocqua Area - Nature's Original Water Park. We call it that because it's located in the middle of Northern Wisconsin's Lake Country. Here there are thousands of lakes, rivers and streams that literally saturate the geography. And vacationers have long been visiting the Minocqua Area to enjoy all this water by boating, swimming, fishing, snowmobiling and more. There's no admission fees and we're open year round!

Fishing Report

Fishing is good, in my boat anyway. We've caught a lot of fish lately. I took clients for some 'back in the woods' fishing for three days last week and we caught around 500 'bull'gills and bass! Man that was fun. It was great to see the looks on their faces in disbelief when they would continue to catch one after another for 4 hours straight. And we're talking average fish of 15" for bass and 9" for bluegill. Beauties. Crawlers and twister tails were the best baits. Color and size of jig mattered and changed from day to day.

We also hit the flowage and thankfully the walleye and perch are active again. One trip we sat in one spot for the whole 4 hours and just fished one weed bed and it's edges and caught gill to 11", perch to 10.5", 2 dozen or so walleye, northern pike, small mouth bass and one big red horse sucker, and we caught him twice! Another trip we caught in excess of 30 northern and walleye.

Again, and I know I preach it over and over again, but flexibility is key. Change baits, presentations, colors and locations. If you aren't catching fish change something. Every time I hit the water it's like starting over. You have to figure out where the fish are and what they want. If you try to tell them how and when to feed you will have limited success. The fish won't change for you.

Time to practice what I preach and hit the water!
